Went to see the Nick Lowe Quality Holiday Revue with Los Straitjackets in Minneapolis last night. It was a slightly sombre evening as Ian McLagan was meant to open the show. A few hours before the show started, his keyboard and other equipment arrived. Also his rider (a 6-pack of Guiness) was in the fridge backstage. Nick took one can with him, a few of the guys from Los Straitjackets also took one each, we opened another to drink a toast in memory of Ian. The remaining can we left in the dressing room.

T'was a fun night for all.

Went to see Lee Mack at the Colston Hall in Bristol last night. His warm up Mike Gunn was very amusing, Lee Mack himself was all right, I didn't come out with an aching jaw like after seeing Frankie Boyle, mind. One of the funniest things was that the Colston Hall has a poster up in the foyer advertising Joan Rivers on 12 October. I fear they shall be a tad disappointed.

They'll have health and safety down on them pretty quick if Rivers shows up (though, oddly, I'd say Rivers would find that scenario very funny).

Meant to mention, saw Hawkind a couple of weeks ago. 70 su...

Will anyone be trying to get tickets for the Kate Bush gigs?

I was thinking about it but a colleague agreed we should only do it if we can have a time machine and go back and see the 1979 tour.

Can she still sing Wuthering Heights?

I am enjoying the news coverage but a tiny part of me is fearful that if I went I would be disappointed. I probably wouldn't be able to get tickets anyway.

Just saw The Stranglers at Newcastle O2 Academy, fantastic gig but no sign of Jet Black.

Nine Below Zero were great too.

So, The Stranglers, may just be DLers band of choice.

Nice!

Saw Russell Howard at the LG Arena in Birmingham last night, very funny indeed and would certainly go again.
