How was your gig last night?

Recommended Posts

Hilarious punter vocal contribution on Saturday night...turn the volume up and have a listen. He was blitzed when we arrived at 7.30pm and could just about stand up at about 10pm when this little gem happened :-)

European badgers are nothing like american badgers. American badgers look like they are going to knife you, european badgers look like they are going to invite you home for tea and scones.

ETA: Literally!

A sensible attitude. They are a much loved animal in the UK, but probably the one with teh greatest offensive capability. And ours live in big families, not like your US loners...

Badgers: I used to work with a chap from a farming family in North Wales, and he'd go home at the weekends to help his Dad with the farm stuff. They were losing chickens at a rate to a fox being in the area, so his Dad had knocked up a cage/trap from wire mesh and 2x4s (something he'd used before) - his Dad didn't want to shoot the fox, the MO was always to trap it, drive it a long way away and release it. So they baited it and once it was dark settled down a way away to wait. After about an hour, they heard a kerfuffle, and set off with their torches at a trot. My friend told me the noise got louder the nearer they approached, his Dad was about ten yards in front of him, when suddenly his Dad shot back past him, all knees and elbows and accelerating, with the single cry of "stinky poo! It's a badger!". My friend followed suit, and the pair of them retreated to the house to sip tea and not make eye contact. They went back down in the morning and the badger had destroyed the cage completely, and given the 2x4s a good splintering, just to make the point...

Badgers not withstanding, this thread has gone quiet.

No-one online gigging? 

Maybe Steve Lawson could contribute? ;)

No gigging here in Milwaukee WI. And there's no end in sight. And we had the whole summer booked.

Hopefully the gigs will still be there when it gets back to some sort of normality. How are you surviving without gigs Blue. ?

trouble is we were booked up for the year, so got no spare dates to do the gigs we've had to cancel, I would think most busy bands are in the same boat, plus the good venues will be booked up for the year anyway

Just add the cancelled gigs onto the end of the ones you can manage this year. 

As much as its difficult i'm trying to take a positive slant on what's happening. I'm assuming the clubs, venues, events will all still be looking once this ends. We don't play a huge amount of gigs but we will just take up where we left off once this dies down a bit and start re-arranging any cancelled gigs as soon as the venues can take us. No point in being down on it.

We discussed an online gig, but it sounded too difficult!

Not great, our band leader and her husband are doing live shows on Facebook every Friday Night.

I'm staying positive and following all the guidelines..

How about you?

I'm retired anyways Blue. Living in countryside life hasn't changed that much for me. At least i'm getting the garden tidied up before summer this year. Its almost complete. I miss my trips to Costa coffee to watch the world go by or even the occasional lunch.

Our band only gigs every couple of months due to other member commitments. I def miss my rehearsals tho 

Was a bit concerned for people like yourself who rely on gigs to survive. Our singer who does a lot of solo gigs on a weekly basis is looking at other jobs like stocking supermarket shelves at night to make ends meet.

Health wise we are all good.

Your 'Glam Cousins' south of the border are looking at it the same way mate, we hadn't booked as far forward as we usually do this year as we were trying to balance pubs, clubs and festivals but we still had about 25 or so booked in.  Hopefully when this is all over the venues will reopen.....

Sad to hear that Alan Merril succumbed to this awful disease over the weekend.

Glad to hear your staying healthy.

Yeah, we had a couple of 2 & 3 gig weekends all cancelled. The stimulus money I get will offset my $$$ loss.

Was sad about him. They were a great band in their day.
