I don't think I will ever go to concerts alone anymore. I suffer from depression and few things are more depressing than being alone among crowds of people who know each other and have a good time. Makes me want to burn them all. Definitely the kind of situation you should look for if you're trying to become a serial killer LOL 

I've been in that place and it's not good. It's a very tough call to be approachable in a room full of strangers. Having said that gigs can be a great place to meet folk; I have many good a genuine friends that were once strangers at gigs. If you're in the North West I'd be happy to meet up for a gig to break your cycle, my shifts at work permitting.

To get back on topic.

Just booked for Homemade Sin ( had an ex who was big into Georgia Satellites, which kinda obliged me to be as well). John Coghlan's Quo in August, Blockheads in Oct (I think).

thanks for your kindness but I live in Italy... 

Anyways I have gone to gigs on my own for years. It wasn't pleasant.

Yeah, a gig in Italy would be a bit of a trek from this direction. Keep going to the gigs though, better than keeping yourself isolated.

That’s such a shame. I too suffer from chronic depression, chronic anxiety and ptsd, but a good gig - and I choose carefully - is one of the few times I can (hopefully) forget about this. I ignore everyone else as best I can and focus on the performance and the music.

Sorry to hear you have that kind of problems too... I wish I could enjoy a gig at least, like you, but I can't anymore in this town. But I'm not giving up to convince my drummer to go and see Yob!  :)

I can only offer my sympathy and best wishes to you guys and hope that things improve for you..

I've had no real experience of depression. I've known some anxiety but its probably more adrenelin or worry more than anything else for me.

I've just been very lucky in life i guess so it would be an insult to offer any kind of advice from me.

Shame you can't get to some gigs tho as its something that i enjoy altho more so when i was younger. These days i'm very selective mainly cause i'm gettin old and its too much trouble getting to gigs unless i drive an hour each way.

One of my bands was playing at the Home Farm Festival on Saturday and I went back on the Sunday  to see the Truthseekers (Norm's band) and Reef. Truthseekers were ace, lovely songs and playing from all including Norm and I hung around to see Reef who were headlining.

Imagine my surprise when Jack Bessant stepped on stage and attached this to the longest strap I've ever seen. I've not seen a 72 Telecaster played live since Kenny Gradney with Little Feat back in the 70's. (Historical note, I have a 72 Tele too).

been offered a spot on the guest list for the Vltimas gig at the Underworld tomorrow night (a mate's band is the main support).  Don't know much about them so intrigued to see what they're like (and probably wouldn't be going if I wasn't getting in for free)

Also in the middle of a week long train strike on my line so not tempted to stay late, but it's a 10.00 curfew so I should be OK to see some of them and get home...famous last words...

I volunteer for FOH duty at a local theatre, and in the next few weeks we have various well-known comedians coming to the "Tringe" (Tring's version of the Edinburgh comedy Fringe), but I’m looking forward to seeing Rainer Hersch, a conductor/musician who brilliantly combines music with comedy.
