BREAKFAST at the Ramada is good. Then I get some work done before we check out and head back to The Cluny to pick up the gear and say cheerio.
Next stop is a bank. I desperately need to pay some money to cover a bunch of direct debits coming off today.
Finally we hit the road south, stopping in Darlington for some bits and bobs.
We roll into Barnoldswick – which some say is in Lancashire, and some say is Yorkshire – an drive past the venue twice before we finally spot the place. It’s very cool place and reminds me a lot of the old Bein Inn near Perth. Intimate gig space, loads of music memorabilia and great stuff.
Soundman Matt is ace as is doorman Stuart and bar staff Abigail and Sam. There’s some nice sandwiches and other goodies in the green room and we chill after soundcheck then go to say hello to our pals Jan and Rodgebefore doors open.
I play two 45 minutes to an incredibly enthusiastic audience and have a brilliant time. That’s tow magic shows under our belt this trip 🙂
We go back to Rodge and Jan’s and have some grub and chat for a few hours before bed….
