On Saturday, being the scientist that I am, I carried out an experiment in to broadcasting a live gig from my bedroom. Expecting to be playing songs by myself to no-one, I was pleasantly surprised when I got 25 people tuning in at it’s peak.
I had planned a 30 minute slot or so, but before I knew it an hour was up. People who were watching joined in using the #davesonlinegig hash-tag and also on the facebook page, where requests for covers and my own songs were left. I think people enjoyed themselves.
It was all very last minute, so a lot of people missed out. To fix this (and a few of the issues people had joining in), I’ve decided to repeat it all again a week on Wednesday (25th April) at 20:00GMT. I’ll be broadcasting through the same page on the website, and people can use the hashtag, facebook again. I’ve also added a chat widget below the video window to make it much easier and instant. I really hope you can make it, bring your own booze etc.
In other news, I finally finished the video diary from my tour with Emma Hallows and Woody, which you can watch below. The headline show in Glasgow is just two weeks away and tickets are selling well, if you plan on coming, please get your tickets soon.
