Llueven Pieles De Leopardo: Neil Hannon + Cathy Davey (Casino L'Aliança Poble Nou, 23/11/10)
Bombín, bastón y elegancia de gentleman británico. Aunque Irlanda se le esté hundiendo en el océano, en manos de Complete Bankers. Flema, que es decir cachondeo de fachada impertérrita. Piano o guitarra, y a la segunda canción ya nos hemos olvidado de la ausencia de la orquesta de la divina comedia.
