Blog: On a happier note...

< previous next >
Hooray! I got tickets last night to go and see Teenage Fanclub at the Astoria! BRILLIANT! The last time I saw them, at Bowlie, was the LOUDEST gig I have ever been to. Being a bit of a Clever Clogs I have, of course, developed a theory/system/SCHEME re. Getting To The Front At Gigs, as follows:

"Go round the back to the furthest point from the entry (and lo, this shall usually be Stage Left), and then walk forward along the edge. Surely you will then get right down the front."

Never fails. So me and my old pal Mileage duly DID walk right round to the left and towards the front, and found ACRES of space... but this time it was because it was PHYSICALLY PAINFUL to stand anywhere near the speakers. Man ALIVE it was loud! But, also, BLOODY GRATE!

On holiday last summer we saw a Beatles Tribute Band, and Charlotte was frankly HORRIFIED by the ghastliness of my singalonga-stylee singing. I dread to think what'll happen when she hears me trying to do TFC HARMONIES in a similar stylee...
