What Gig's Have You Been To?

Couldn't see a thread dedicated to live music.

I went to see The Specials last night at Rock City,Nottingham.  Good gig small venue (about 2500).  Decent atmosphere.  Was almost a very short concert with Mr Hall threatening to walk off after bottles were thrown.  It seems some people just can't help acting like idiots.  Some well dressed folks about too.  I'm always blown away when I see a women skinheads, a male skinhead so what?  But a woman skinhead that takes guts.

    • yep. Threw up in bed...well by the side of my bed.  Not a proud moment.

    • Lucky you Gary, saves you a fortune on bar bills plus no hangovers the following morning.
    • Lol! I don't know Chris. For some strange reason because I don't drink, everyone keeps trying to get me pissed. I'd be a millionaire now if got a quid for every drink ever offered. Ha ha 

    • I know what you mean mate. For some weird reason some drinkers have this thing about trying to persuade non drinkers to get involved in it. I would never try and persuade them, i just lace their drinks ha ha
    • I've been well and truly laced before Chris. At a party I kept being given this lovely tasting green Benedictine 'lemonade'... I woke up a day later in a cardboard box, in the spare room with a total loss of memory. Fortunately it was pre-cellphone days so with a bit of luck, 24hrs of my life isn't floating about on youtube. Ha ha ;0)

  • Really looking forward to some Modern Jazz this weekend. I will be escorting a lady who was a 'Tottenham Royal' dancer/face, who gave me a much more in depth education when it came to Mods and the Blues. Being a revivalist, with a broader range and wider selection on the foibles of mod, I introduced her to modern jazz. Which she at first turned her nose up at, saying it was the domain of the more highbrowed Modernist (elitism! don't you just love it!) who frequented The Flamingo and/or The Marquee. But over time, I convinced her that the two were inextricably linked. You can read more of Joan the mod's best thoughts in the upcoming, fantastic looking 'Mojo Talkin': Under The Influence Of Mod' book by the indubitably skilled writer and publisher Tony Beesley.

    Me, myself and I is just glad to be fixing up, sharp and proper for a great night out with some like minded people and all that jazz... ;0)


  • Robin Eubanks and the Essen Jazz Orchestra yesterday; good to dig some live Jazz again!

  • Day 4 of the Ballarat Beat Rockabilly Festival watching local band the Radio Waves playing at Sutton's House of Music. Free entry! Hope to book them for the 2017 Melbourne Mods vs Rockers.
  • Got myself tickets for Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band today, who will perform at this years' Glasgow Mod Weekender.
    • Looks like it will be a brilliant gig Kai. Who knows, with a bit of luck i may even manage along too. If not i will certainly enjoy the rest of the weekender.
