Anyone ambivalent about Mika might be pleasantly surprised with this gorgeous performance from last night’s Mencap Little Noise Session in the sublime Union Chapel (it’s a church – and it’s got a bar! I heart England.)
Mika headlined and I tip my cap to him. He was a riot. (Alas, Paloma Faith had to cancel – although most people seemed to be there for Mika so weren’t too disappointed.) We also got a taster of 18-year-old Alex Gardner, a Xenomania popstar in the making (and who was being naughty outside smoking and playing guitar at all hours of the night – I can report though, that he was wearing his scarf like a good boy should).
Anyway, small, intimate venue (fab acoustics obviously) and all for a good cause.

EDIT: Welcome to all the folk from the Mika Fan Club Forum. Nice to have you on board. I’ve some other snippets of video to edit and upload, so keep checking back over the next day or so.
