Thursday night drew me out to Oxford Circus and the chance to attend an album release party for the band Palladium. Just signed to Virgin Records, the band apparently received a bit of an advance to hold a party for the release of their newest album. Held in Studio Valbonne, a club off of Regent St. I was greeted with an open bar and appetizers. I got a chance to mix and mingle with the London Indie pop VIPs and watch a short set from Palladium. I met a few nice people and had some good conversation with a girl named Lauren. She is South African / Moroccan, and we spent most of the time talking about our travels and her confusion as to why she needed a fake ID when she was visiting her cousin in D.C. She thought it was pretty funny that in America an 18 year-old can drive while carrying a gun… but can’t get a drink- I guess I can’t argue with that one. It was nice to share some good conversation and meet a new face.
