Live Music
At the beginning of last year I made a promise to myself that I would make the effort to see more live music. Last year I went to 7 ticketed gigs plus a few non-ticketed ones... which was a little shy of my target of 12. I saw Elbow earlier this year, Dora has invited me to see the Easy Star All-Stars this month and a couple weeks ago Lena invited me to Winterthur to see Snow Patrol... but I realised that it's already a quarter of the way through the year and I had nothing else planned.

At the end of last week I saw that Depeche Mode had added another date to their London tour... so I bought a couple tickets. This was not cheap but I justify it because it's Depeche Mode, and it's just after my birthday so it's a late birthday present to me from me!

I was still a bit behind my target so on the weekend I got tickets for Gary Newman Numan and The Streets. This has me at gigs in every month from March to July with one in December. I am now completely broke, but I have a lot to look forward to this year!

blaspheming nitwit?? :( That's a tad harsh!

In the future: for your health and mine - don't misspell God-like names in music!

:P

I should do this too. I haven't been to a gig in ages and I used to go every chance that came up.

It's one of the best things you can do... and it's legal! ;)

I was just having a similar thought this morning - what gigs am I attending. I saw Elbow and Snow Patrol (very good gig!) earlier this year, I'm going to see Easy Star All Stars and Abney Park later this month, and I just got news that I have a ticket to see SPINAL TAP'S ONE NIGHT ONLY WORLD TOUR!!! at the end of June.

Tis a good year for gigs so far... I need a gig icon, don't I.

Re: Envy...

I have emailed you Wembley/Spinal Tap details to your android email. If you'd prefer them sent to work so you can start phoning in, lemme know. ;-)
