A Motion Powered Gig with Ella Eyre in London, sponsored by SURE

August 27, 2015 LLG Beauty

I’ve been going to gigs since I was old enough to persuade my parents that I wouldn’t get into trouble, and there’s still little I enjoy more than dancing around to live music in a hot, sweaty venue. Even if I do now eschew the mosh pit for a more civilised spot at the back […]
