NEW BLOG! GOODBYE WORDPRESS!

May 2, 2011

Hello!  Just to let you know, I’m moving blogs!

From now on, I’ll be updating http://sophiegalpin.tumblr.com with all my new stuff.  It’s easier to use and is a bit slicker.  Sorry WordPress.  I’ve had a wonderful time.

See you over there!

Bergenfest

April 28, 2011

Hello!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  It’s the Royal Wedding this weekend, and to avoid the media hype and London grinding to a standstill, My First Tooth are leaving the country.

Only for the weekend though.

On Friday and Saturday we will be playing Bergenfest in Norway!

Our shows are:

Friday 29th April – Skyskraperen (18.30)
Saturday 30th April – DAK – Tivoli (00.00) At midnight on Saturday night (basically Sunday morning!)

One of these shows is right at the top of a mountain.  Awesome.

Glastonbury Emerging Talent

April 5, 2011

Hello!  On Saturday My First Tooth drove down to Pilton for the finals of the Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition.  It was amazing to be able to watch 7 other amazing bands over the course of the evening, as well as playing for the Eavises of course.  Treetop Flyers were (deservedly) the winners, but all of the final 8 bands were offered Glastonbury slots, so everyone’s a winner!  Thanks again to Mark from Bitter Fingers for putting us through in the first place.  See you at Glasto!  (Thanks to Laura Zaky Photography for the photo below.)
