Roddy Woomble, vocalist from indie band Idlewild played an intimate gig at Clwb Ifor Bach on Tuesday evening.
Flanked by a guitarist, fiddler and a man playing the double bass, Woomble's beautiful voice was heard to great effect in this acoustic set despite the heavy metal music emanating from downstairs at the venue.
Particular highlights included Tangled Wire and My Secret is my Silence. Sat on stage, Woomble's humble interjections between songs seemed appropriate.
It is almost a shame Woomble included the Idlewild classic You Held the World in your Arms, as his own music stands apart. At least it would have been a shame if it hadn't been so well executed.
This went down well with the audience, but wasn't as if they had been waiting for it throughout the gig. All in all it was a special experience for the hundred or so people in attendance.
