Was out for Maurice Fulton last night at Cabaret (where you played Paul). Slightly strange set, chopping and changing, and final hour seemed to be mostly instru edits of pop classics, madonna, pat benatar, sister sledge amongst others. Not a massive criticism but not what i expected.
Just arrived in Dublin for this gig. A friend’s album release… Not very Saturday night but good to hear live music.
Went to the Dream Machine last night. Was OK. Bit short. Mostly was like trying to get to sleep after a night on the pills/powder. Remember using brain machines back in the Nineties, just a bigger communal version of that really
For the Berlin heads. Going to see Marcos Valle at Gretchen in case someone missed that one. Should be good.
Took the boy to see ‘Get Up, Stand: The Bob Marley Story’ last night.
What a brilliant show. You could almost be watching Bob, the actor was that good. And the actress playing Rita was just sensational - what a voice.
If you get a chance to see it, then it’s highly recommended.
Off to this in a couple of weeks. Oi, oi!!!
Eddie Chacon and John Carroll Kirby at the Church of Sound in November.
They were brilliant when I saw them last year.
Went to JCK in Dublin few months ago… Brilliant night. Might try and get to one of these gigs. I do fancy Paris in November. Just checking flights dublin - Paris 10-13 November €19.99 each way bargain
Sydney folks - has anyone been to a show at Phoenix Central Park ? Venue looks stunning. Apparently all shows are free but obtained via lottery:
Seeing loads of pics of mates dining out in the glorious sunshine in Carcasonne, I have a major case of the ALFOMOS going on right now.
Sold our tickets on at a time when i was a bit strapped and couldn’t justify Convenanza and Ibiza in a fortnight, and now I’m regretting it…
Ha. Love ALFOMOS. Very good.
I hummed/haaed on convenanza. Obv I enjoy the social/music but i just didn’t fancy the queues, esp after the lovely/intimate 50€ NOUS the other week in another French castle. And stuff on here tonight as well
Going to the Secretsundaze live ensemble thingy at the Southbank in a couple of weeks where they reinterpret club favourites of the last 20 years…looking forward…
And Bill and Frank’s book talk/Q+A at the Walthamstow Rock and Roll Book Club the night before…
I know he’s not everyone’s cup of team on here but I’m really looking forward to seeing Luke Una at the Faith Boat Party tonight.
Going to try and make the pre-mans at Between The Bridges this afternoon
Just bagged tickets for this.
Cheers to @wearethemusicmakers for the heads up.
They were ace at WOH. You’re in tor a treat.
