Justin Vernon’s third Bon Iver album is a weird and wonderful thing
Aguilera, Christina : London Astoria G-A-Y
...a whopping £17 for three songs...
Quite right too, as tonight Aguilera is ace as ace can be. Even though she only performs three songs, meaning that she and her six dancers barely produce even one millilitre of collective sweat - let alone cause it to run all over her bo-deh. After opening with 'Dirrty' and knocking off an album track (ie controversially NOT 'Genie In A Bottle') Christina flees the stage and returns wearing even more clothes than before, which is hardly the point at all, but she saves the day with a triumphant reading of 'Beautiful' which is a bloody great song that has Gays kissing in the video so everyone goes mental and forgets they've paid a whopping £17 for three songs.
With their bigger and better second album, London-based indie/dance band Boxed In have earned their breakout moment
