Part-time Libertine and part time jail bird, Pete Docherty played two blistering sets at Brixton’s Jamm tonight. The first of his solo shows for 2012 included the kind of crowd invasion you’d expect from such a gig. The sets comprised of mostly old stuff with a peppering of new material. Debut live outings for Down For The Outing and Farmers Daughter seem to go down well with the crowd. Doherty was on fine form and at one point in the gig, threw himself to the baying fans in the form of a stage dive.
Set was full of the favourites including the Libertines Time For Heroes, Babyshambles Albion and the epic trademark Doherty tune Music when the lights go out.
It was the invitation extended to a fan to join Doherty on stage which sparked a mini stage invasion. Security guards flapped around as the crowd revelled in the spectacle. Some things just don’t change with Docherty and I think that’s how we like it.
