WE wake up to sunshine at Ponnie’s in Eastbourne and after a long breakfast we go for a walk along the seafront. Like being on holiday!
Still, there’s quite a lot of online stuff and bits and bobs of work to tend to when we get back.
Mid-afternoon we leave for Brighton – a lovely 20-odd mile drive along the coast road – and load in at Komedia. Engineer Pete is on hand to help out and Jamie – who did my sound last time gives us a hand too. This really is a brilliant venue.
I’m just finished soundchecking when Nico and James – the Bitter Pills – who’re opening for me arrive.
We have some grub and I get myself sorted out int he dressing room and do a quick, impromptu Facebook livestream before heading back to watch the Bitter Pills who play a great set.
There’s a good crowd in, some of whom have been to my shows before…and lots of new faces too.
We have a fantastic night and are back at Ponnie’s soon after midnight for a dram and a snack before bed.
