It’s been seventy two days since my last fix. I’m growing twitchy!
Having checked the calendar, there’s still seventy seven days to go until my next scheduled fix. Tragic!
If my maths are correct that is one hundred and forty nine days without a fix!
Far too long! Far FAR too long!!!
I’ll have completely forgotten my way to the 5.25 train to Glasgow by the time 12 November comes around.
Some of you are possibly scratching your heads and muttering “What’s she wittering about now?”
Those of you who follow this blog and those of you who happen to know me or even on occasion accompany me will have guessed.
I’m suffering from a severe drought of gigs! It’s quietly killing me. My hearing’s been almost perfect for weeks now!
The last was Tremonti at my favourite O2 ABC on 15 June.
My next scheduled gig is Crobot at The Cathouse, Glasgow on 12 November.
Daily I’m keeping my eye on the various social media sites for updates on long hoped for tour news.
I’ve scanned my O2 Academy app looking for potential shows.
I’m scouring the music magazines for tour news on a weekly basis.
(Yes, I know, there are countless bands out there touring and playing fantastic shows but a night out at a gig isn’t a cheap night out and I am perhaps being a little picky on economic grounds.)
My diary where I store concert tickets for up-coming shows is very, very empty. There are only my Crobot tickets for November and my Carnival of Madness tickets for Glasgow for February 2016 (still waiting for the Manchester ones to arrive)
So until things pick up on the live show front, it’s time to plug in the iPod (ok, ok, it’s always on), attempt not to download too much music (Can you actually have too many tunes?), explore new bands/albums and reflect on the memories of shows gone by.
Here’s a few of the special moments that are keeping me going.
