I had a wonderful time on Friday for my gig in Inverness. Apologies that it was a flying trip, I had stuff that I needed to attend to in Dundee. Part of that ‘stuff’ was the wonderful Make That A Take’s Book Yer Ane Fest. I was merely a spectator on Saturday, catching the acoustic pre-show at Cerberus then a whole number of amazing acts at Kage through the day.Then, for 20 minutes on Sunday, I played my set. A mixture of having a bad cold/cough, hangover and other ‘stuff’ made for an interesting set. I may have fallen in to the trap that Chris T-T wrote about the other day, and if i did, I can only apologise. It wasn’t on purpose, and aside from that, I had a lovely day. It’s an almost perfect celebration of DIY Punk Rock.
Looking forwards, we wrap up RFPB activities for another year with some amazing upcoming gigs. First up is a show at Audio in Glasgow on Friday with Larry and His Flask, Crazy Arm and Broken Stories. Then, on Saturday, we get in the Nissan Micra-cosm and head off to Dunfermline to Monty’s Rock Bar for our last headline show of 2013.
Hell, if Mark McCabe can have his Album launch show in Huddersfield, we can close out 2013 in Dunfermline. Winky face dot com of course.
Upcoming gigs with Chris T-T
Musical activities for 2013 come to a close for me the following week when I head out for three solo dates with all round good guy, and largest influence on my ‘modern’ writing Chris T-T. We’re playing at the Star and Shadow Cinema in Newcastle on Tuesday, then Pivo in Edinburgh on Wednesday, and I then finish out the year in style with our show at Roxy 171 in Glasgow.
On a note about these Chris T-T shows, any help to get the word out about them would be much appreciated. I have created this ‘tour’ poster for our shows, which you could share on Twitter, Facebook, Google or Pinterest. Hell, do this and I’ll work out how to get you in to the show for cheaper.
