Still in Lockdown Step 3, but a chance to see six new acts in the outdoor theatre of Poole Lighthouse, one almost sunny afternoon before a big England footy match.
A journey to the unlikely setting of North Boarhunt Social Club – the first live gig since Lockdown started, by Phil ‘Swill’ Odgers of The Men They Couldn’t Hang, and the first since the sudden loss of fellow Men They Couldn’t Hang frontman Stefan Cush.
The last few months of the Covid riddled 2020 meant a harder search for the grey haired gig goer to find live music, but there was still some life out there.
A first trip to the Madding Crowd nightclub venue in Bournemouth for the grey haired gig goer. Tonight this is a socially distanced, Covid-safe gig with The Hoosiers popping their heads above the Lockdown parapet. This piece focuses as much on the venue and the adaptations as it does the former chart toppers.
Emerging from Lockdown, this is the first indoor Live and Unheard session in Poole’s Lighthouse Arts Centre. Three new acts play their original material.
The Spitfires get to play live at last, against all odds and with Covd-19 restrictions closing in everywhere. New album released in Lockdown…and the Grey Hair Gig Goer is grateful to be back in Guildford to see them.
