said the maiden: here's a health

It was a balmy autumnal evening. Too warm for a late October night, but I hardly cared. This wasn't a night to complain about the weather, it was a night to be excited, joyous, and to listen to some uplifting music and celebrate. 

If you are familiar with these pages, you will know that Said the Maiden have featured on more than the odd occasion! Here they are again, (think I need to start charging them!) Tonight was the album launch for Here's a Health. Their 2nd full-length record. On this balmy night, the world was about to hear the fruits of their labour. The venue, The Water Rats in Kings Cross, London.
