Gig last night was at the Adam and Eve in Birmingham. We set off around 7.50, with the soundcheck penciled in for 7.30-8.00 We got there around 8.30 with an old guy rambling at the bar and a 'classy-bird' barmaid straight out of Only Fools and Horses. The promoter(!?) then approached us and told us one band had turned up and left as there was no one there and that another was yet to turn up. Asking whether we'd like to stay or go, we decided for the latter, thankfully, it was like we'd dodged a bullet. We had one token drink then left with the wee beady eyes of the locals fixed to the back of our heads. Rearranging this one is not really top of our 'to-do' list. An hour and a half round trip which I could have spent at home watching The West Wing (which is awesome).
Same again next Thursday in Derby?
