Shock-rockers W.A.S.P. are in Bristol for what must be the last time. An inquisitve grey-haired gig goer takes a peek.

The Lathums – live at The London Roundhouse
A trip to London to one of my favourite venues to see one of the most outstanding bands of recent years.
The Skids – live at The 100 Club
I catch up with The Skids and a few mates at the legendary 100 Club. One of two sell-out gigs.
Slow Readers Club – live on board Thekla, Bristol
Something of a maritime adventure with another Slow Readers Club gig, this time in the unusual surroundings of the good ship Thekla. Great support band tonight – you’ll be hearing about him.
The Levellers – live & acoustic in Poole
A rare visit to Poole for The Levellers with their acoustic tour.
Florence and the Machine – live in Bournemouth
Nearly 14 years since catching Florence on her first big tour, I return to see her, or is it them, at the BIC.
Coach Party – live in Southampton
Independent Venue Week takes me to a packed out Joiners in Southampton to see a full evening of live music with three acts …and for just £12 a ticket.
Gig Venue: The Joiners, Southampton
The grey-haired gig goer sets the scene at The Joiners music venue in Southampton, one of the South Coast’s legendary small independent music venues.
Showaddywaddy – live in Dorset
The remaining incarnation of 70s rock’n’roll popsters Showaddywaddy pay a visit to the East Dorset town of Wimborne… don’t be sniffy, come on in, you know you’d enjoy it (if you’re over 55).
Paul Heaton live in Birmingham – on his own at this one
This handily timed, well-priced gig gave me a chance to take the natural next step to seeing The Housemartins and The Beautiful South. No Jackie Abbott tonight due to illness but Heaton carried on regardless.
