GIG 005: Ghost Dance / Rose of Avalanche / Ides of March - Town & Country Club 06/11/88
Strangely even though I'd been in to goth music since @ 1985/86 it took me until my fifth gig to actually see some goth bands. In this case it was the brilliant Ghost Dance headlining the Town & Country club in Kentish Town with Manchester's "Rose of Avalanche" in support along with Ides of March.

When Rose of Avalanche came on you'd have thought they were headlining - the crowd was manic and I ended up in the thick of it along with Jason and Wicksy. Rose of Avalanche blew me away and I wasn't sure how Ghjost Dance would compare to such a stunning set. Well, Ghost Dance matched them and threw something extra on top - even though I ended up having to watch the latter part of the set from the side as I was way too knackered to continue :p

Ghost Dance cemented themselves as an early leader in my 'favourite live bands of all time' chart and subsequent performances over the next year or so just strengthened their claim.

Price: £5.00

I was at that one! Loved Sunday Night's at the T&C.

You know Anne-Marie Hurst is playing again?

Yes, I've caught her a couple of times since she returned to the circuit. I saw her at her first London gig at the Scala and then a few months later when she played Electrowerkz.

I'm a friend of hers over on Facebook so get the gig info as she announces it. It was fantastic seeing her live at the Scala after so many years. Ghost Dance were one of my favourite goth bands and I didn't think I'd ever get a chance to see them/her again so I'm very pleased she's back in action :)
