A Pilgrimage to Dunfermline: Skids and Big Country

The Skids and Big Country at the Glen Pavilion, Dunfermline 28.12.19 What a trip and what a privilege to get here tonight. Up from Poole as a Christmas treat to the home of The Skids and Big Country. I never thought I’d get up here, ever. My fourth Skids gig of 2019 and third Big …

Season’s Greetings from Wembley

A festive party of 80s artists at Wembley Arena to serve as the Grey Haired Gig Goer’s Chrismas party. Bit different to a normal gig – more of a festive juke box and great night in the bar.

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Park … and the Pavilion

Some snapshots of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark playing live over a 34 year period….well I saw them once at the start of that 34 year period with no camera or phone and at their Bournemouth gig this week, where I took some photos – snapshots indeed.

My Vitriol on Islington High Street

This illustrates that gig night is not always all about the music. A lovely old venue with a bit of history, like the Islington Assembly Hall, in an area of diverse eateries, pubs and bars makes it all more of an adventure….but hey, it’s not every week you get the chance to see the elusive ‘My Vitriol’.
