A request

This is a request from the old people. Can bands play at some point before 3 am? Coz by then we’d rather be in bed with a nice warm hottie.

Aside from that, its been a good week, with much stuff, several things, and only occasional nrgah.

Oh, and bands that sound like Babes in Toyland, but without the whole out-of-kilter, bout to fall over, needy, gonna mess you up, disaster swamp monster thing, are really missing the point of catastrophe chick blues. Its all about the falling over, dammit!

  1. Yes! I have the same gripe about gigs, and I’m just a young feller. Welly is even worse than Auckland for that sort of thing, if I remember rightly. I blame two things:
    i) The lack of a tube system that closes at midnight (everything seems to be over by 11:30 here in the UK, which meant that – running on NZ time when I first got here – I saw the last ten minutes of the first gig I went to here).
    ii) Alcohol. If the support band/main act/both don’t get smashed, the gig actually runs on time.

    Unfortunately, there is no solution to i) in Welly, and the only solution I know for ii) is to go to a straightedge gig. Although you can get the same experience as my solution for ii) if you hit yourself upside the head with a frying pan a couple of times, so I’m not sure it’s a good solution.
