Gigs I'm going to


#802

System 7 were brilliant, but you really wouldn’t want to have any issues with photosensitive epilepsy.


#803

Ulrich Schnauss and visual effects lady engaged in a particularly tricky game of three dimensional chess


#804

Just had my insides rearranged by Leftfield.

The Orb next.


#805

Not jealous at all, oh no. :smile:


#806

Fuzzygram of Youth & Steve Hillage as part of the Orb

It only dawned on me when he walked onstage that the geezer in the queue for the bar earlier was Youth.

Bumped into a mate on the train back from London who was at The Roundhouse. He said they were selling tickets on the door for £20.

I’d assumed it would be sold out… Doh!


#808

Yes. I think it was badly advertised. I only heard about it when the Roundhouse mailed me a couple of days ago (something they don’t normally do). I think I would have remembered that bill if I’d seen it previously.

It was very busy inside but they obviously had tickets available up until the last minute. I think the touts really caught a cold. Still, face value was only £32-ish.


#809

Deep joy :+1::ok_hand::joy::grin::joy::grin::joy::grin:


#810

Yes, I can’t say that I was heartbroken for them.


#811

My favourite ever post on the Spiritualized Forum was a tout who got on to complain what a bunch of cunts the Spiritualized crowd was as he had lost his shirt at the debut performance for the entire ‘Ladies and gentlemen we are floating in Space’ album. Some of the responses were genuinely withering.


#812

Quite fancy this:

Trying to convince Claire it would be a great night out, especially if they set the room up like the Sands…


#813

Oh dear. Jazz Orchestra/Big Bands are the Jazz equivalent of pipe and slippers. Unless you stink of piss and have odd feet they are best avoided.


#814

Yeah, but Fly Me To The Moon reasons.


#815

Wrong because Maynard Ferguson. Who, in fairness, is unlikely to feature in much of the set list for the above.


#816

I rest my case.


#817

Fuck off Cape boy.:grinning:


#818

:smile:


#819

In January I bought tickets to see Martin Simpson tonight.
Hadn’t considered Lopwell at the time
