WELL…EP release day, video premiere day…and a show in Edinburgh tonight that needs last minute promo.
So you can imagine my annoyance when the hotel wifi decides to go on a go-slow. Just gotta bash on though and somehow we manage everything….first I deal with the new release.
Then liaising with The Blues Magazine for the online premiere of the Hellbound Train video and co-ordinating it with my Facebook page, we get that all going before moving onto some last minute promo for tonight’s (Friday) show at Sneaky pete’s in Edinburgh.
We get checked out the hotel and leave Aberdeen behind. When we stop for a coffee I do some online stuff and, on checking out iTunes see that Hellbound Train has entered the iTunes blues chart at number seven. Result! It’ll probably only be there for a day, but it’s up there in the top ten with some big names 🙂
Arriving in Edinburgh, we drop our bags off at Lesley’s, pick up ticket money at Ripping Records then load in at Sneaky Pete’s.
There’s a good crowd in when Lee opens the show at 7.30pm and by the time I kick off my set the place is pretty full. A great crowd.
I have a real blast playing and after two encores manage to get off the stage. Covered in sweat, whisky and buzzing from everyone’s enthusiasm. Great to catch up with pals old and new too.
Back at Lesley’s we eat, drink and chat til after 2am then….zzzzzzzzzz….
