Hello boys and girls

Just off the phone with Miles of the CRS and we're now booked to play an acoustic set during the Saturday lunchtime slot (beween 1.00pm and 2.15pm) at this year's Progeny Festival in Leamington Spa. The venue has not yet been named but it'll be a pub very close to the main venue.

We'll post more details as they arrive here at Tinyfish Towers. See you down there!

I hope it goes well.  Out of interest - Saturday or Sunday? - not that I can go anyway.

Oooh, I might even overcome my need to projectile vomit when anywhere near Here And Now to come along for that.

LOL I did wonder if you had moved.

I'm down in Stroud the evening before seeing Pendragon, or we could have sorted something  Sad

It is a shame you are not in the main venue as apparently backstage you can find Tammy Wynette's pink gypsy caravan.

I saw Lady Penelope's pink Cadillac when I was working for Avid Technology at Pinewood Studios.

No, I really did.

No, this is not a euphamism. They really do have a caravan that used to belong to Tammy Wynette backstage at The Assmbly Rooms. They also have a Gatlin gun just inside the backstage door pointing at anyone entering the building that way. The "Green room" also includes 3 very 1950s looking penny arcade rides like you might see outside Superdrug - a car, a boat and a rocket. I took a particularly good photograph of Steve Rothery using his iPhone of him squeezed into the car ride during the L=M tour.

The Assembly rooms in-house staff are cracking chaps too. One of the nicest venues I've ever worked at.

From Miles by e-mail:

Quote
THE PROGENY FRINGE FESTIVAL

This will consist of 3 very intimate acoustic gigs featuring 4 acts, as follows:

Friday 7th May 7.00-11.00pm
'The 2 J's', better known as John Mitchell and John Beck performing a variety of songs from their illustrious careers with It Bites, Kino and perhaps a few surprises. Plus 'Mini-Magenta', Christina Booth and Chris Fry performing an, as yet, undisclosed selection of songs. What a great night this promises to be!

Saturday 8th May 1.00-2.45pm
'Tinyfish Acoustic' - what better way to set yourself up for the main event than to share music, laughs and a lunchtime pint with the always entertaining London lads.

Sunday 9th May 1.00-2.45pm
'Chris Johnson' - Best known for being a member of Fish's band, Mostly Autumn and now fronting his own project, Parade. A relaxing Sunday lunch in cosy surroundings, sounds perfect.

These shows will all take place in the basement bar of the Robbins Well pub, which is a 5 minute walk from the Assembly and also serves decent, reasonably priced food in the main bar.

Tickets are limited to 100 for each day and will only be available from the CRS Shop at http://www.classicrocksociety.co.uk or by phone on 01327 310088 and will go on sale in the next couple of days, priced as follows:

'The 2 J's' & 'Mini-Magenta' 10
'Tinyfish Acoustic' 5
'Chris Johnson' 5
or
Weekend Ticket 17.50 (15 to CRS members).
