Gig-0-Rama.... Young Gods, etc

I wish I had a better bank balance. I think I need to start doing porn or something to get rich....:p

Noticed that The Young Gods are playing The Barfly in Camden on Friday 25th November. This amazes me as it's a teeny venue. But Stargreen only had three tickets left on-line a few minutes ago. They now have two and I *will* be going to the ball. Time to dig out some old Young God vinyls and go bopping around the room to Skinflower I feel!

You can always tell when the university's are about to head back. The live music circuit in London goes haywire. There are SO many bands playing in the next few months that this little Angus wants to go and see. So many..... Well, I guess I shouldn't have so many expensive hobbies and try and run a secondary business on the side using my alledgedly spare cash (hmm.... go to lots of concerts or publish games....?).

Sorry Angus, but that boat has sailed. The industry is really oversaturated now and pretty hard to break into. Unless you're considering becoming an actor...

Back when I was in school my friends attended a lot of concerts for free as ushers. I dunno if they have the same system over there, but they got to see all sorts of shows and got paid (a little) for it. It looks like many of the shows you want to see are in the same places, so would that be a possibility?

Already have tickets for NMA and the Mish. Will no doubt be at the VOM gig but have to check dates for VNV as might be busy.

You like Nickelback? Next time my cousin says she wants to go, and her mum insists on a chaperon, I'm sending you.

Is Bif Naked opening for Billy Idol on your side of the Atlantic, like she did over here?

She's worth seeing.

Not sure. They usually have different support slots between the US and European legs of the tour. Often even different between Euro countries.

I saw Bif Naked back in 1996 supporting Life of Agony and she was fantastic. Have a CD of hers too somewhere. It would be good to catch her again. To be honest I'm probably favouring The Cardiacs who are playing the same night. Mainly because of a £20 ticket price difference between old Billy and them! I saw Billy Idol back in 1993 supporting, er, Bon Jovi, and he was also really good.

Did you catch him on the North American leg?
