Y'know, sometimes it's great living in London. Not when your nose is jammed up someone's armpit on squashed sardine-can public transport carriages, not when some nutter bothers you for change and then calls you a **** for failing to change up a £20 note but , when you are offered the chance to see cheap gigs, cheap art and cheap theatre, it feels like you have 'stuck it to the man' for paying very little.
