I would go to all of those if I could.

Maybe the Fishtank should arrive en mass in matching t-shirts and stand right at the front of the last two shows. Then not get out of the way and obstruct the set change for the final band.

Maybe.

I am hoping that Simon will be playing at Celebr8.3 as I cannot make any of the other gigs now I've spent all my gig money and some of my holiday on going to that.

I think 3 for me.  Have asked 'permission' but that is just a formality.

Simon was briefly telling me his plans for the house gig, and, although I was too tired to concentrate, it does sound like a good one.  Also, as things stand, 60% of Tinyfish will be there.

Last night supporting the Enid was good. We got a lot of cheering, even though it was the fewest number of known faces in the crowd ever :-)

Matt joined in on All Hands Lost, and the Enid's photographer asked me if I was there to do the lights Tongue

Flickr has now been spammed with shots from the show at Rob's house last week. They include:


Simon looking happy.


Simon being silly


Simon apparently twerking, much to Rob's obvious enjoyment


Leon need go poopy


Simon and the tongue of concentration


Laughter all round as Refugee takes on a whole new meaning


Simon worrying Leon's bongos


Simon and Leon in perfect musical harmony


Grand finale!

Mark Colton's 50th Birthday Bash - 29th March 2014, Riffs Bar.
What a thoroughly enjoyable event. Almost a complete festival crammed (and I mean crammed) into one evening. I arrived to find the carpark full, and Rich Harding & Simon Rogers doing their Neo-Deals thing to a full pub. They were followed by Mark Colton with his old band Casual Affair (with Jon Boyes) playing a very good set - honestly, I really think they should get together more often. Then it was time for Simon to instruct us in the way of the acoustic power-chord and inventive introductions, and he played a few songs. For the last song, he was joined on stage by Kim from Touchstone, which was a nice way to end the set. (Note: apparently the Motherland album in physical form is out on Monday - honest guv). As many of us retired to the back of the pub for a brief chat, Andy Sears began his set, which I admit to not hearing a great deal of because it seemed to be slightly lower in volume, but I know he finished with a Twelfth Night tune. Then it all got a bit louder again, as Credo played an epic-filled set, everybody cheered, and Mark got the kids on stage again (well it was his evening and his gig). Finally, Comedy Of Errors finished the night in their own neo-prog style, but by then the pain had kicked in and I made my escape after a couple of their songs.
Six acts, a full venue, loads of mates, many introductions, jolly good fun, and all for 10 - can we do something similar next year please?
