Re: Lost Evenings support

DAY. MADE.

I can't wait for this. Is it wrong to be more excited for Lost Evenings - or at least the half I can get to - than I am for my brother's wedding that weekend (obviously I'm asking hypothetically, if he happens to see this . . .)

Re: Lost Evenings support

Gutted to miss the first two nights of Lost Evenings (especially with today's Chris T-T news) but . . . that Monday line-up is damn near perfect. Wow. I'm guessing (hoping) stage times will be staggered but I doubt we'll be able to see all six acts, however fast we run between them. Can we arrange a...

Re: And we're back in the room (sort of) . . .

Thank you :)

It's been a while - where to even start? The Lost Evenings line-up! The triumphant return of Ben Marwood! The cryptic Mongol Horde tweet! My wholly unnecessary use of exclamation marks!

And we're back in the room (sort of) . . .

It looks like we still can't add comments to the forum directly, but it seems to work via the Tapatalk app if people want a workaround. Fun though the FTA FB page can be, I've now seen enough llama pictures to last me a lifetime so hopefully the forum pages will be up and running again soon! Sent fr...

Re: A Cat Named Virtute

An excellent read - it makes such a difference when an interviewer has a genuine interest in the subject of the interview. Winter Wheat has fast become one of my all-time favourite albums. Five months on and I still keep finding new lyrical twists and subtleties I hadn't spotted previously. I'm craz...

John K Samson UK tour!

This is not a drill, people! According to his Facebook page, he'll be touring the U.K. with the Winter Wheat in the middle of May, with tickets on sale from 2 Feb. There's a real risk I might spontaneously combust with excitement. With the Skinny Lister tour and Lost Evenings/ FrankFest too, I shoul...

Re: Blink 182

Very exciting - and I just managed to bag tickets for Bournemouth, despite it being advertised as sold out.

Everything's coming up Milhouse!

Re: show 2000

Today's the day: HAPPY 2000th BIRTHDAY* FRANK! It's the final day of the Turner Triathlon today. After the film on Tuesday (beautiful) and a truly blistering show in Portsmouth last night (where I finally got to hear A Love Worth Keeping live - thank you Frank!), it's time to make the road trip up t...

Re: Lost Evenings

I knew I wouldn't be able to resist - tickets secured for Sensible Sunday and, unless the boffins can invent teleportation in the next five months, I'll be breaking land speed records to get there from my brother's wedding weekend. So if you see someone in the crowd still in a wedding outfit, don't ...

Re: Lost Evenings

Looks utterly amazing.

Sadly I can't persuade my brother to move his wedding to a different weekend so I can go to this instead. The selfish sod.

Get Better film

And the Mystery of the Missing Show is solved!

This sounds amazing. If it doesn't have the production quality, acting skills and dramatic plot twists of Murder on the Tour Bus Express, I'll be most disappointed. The bar was set high with that one . . .

Re: show 2000

Insanely excited for this, especially now the supports have been announced. But - BUT - unless my maths has gone wonky, adding the live shows to the current show count only gets you to #1999 for this date, rather than the all-important #2000? The Mystery of the Missing Show . . . where's Benedict Cu...

Re: Winter Wheat First Listen

I've had this on repeat all weekend - breathtakingly good. I'm such a sucker for a great lyric. Who couldn't love "I paw at the synapses, bright bits of string" or "I want you to take your time to disappear" . . . ? And the line, "I believe in you and your PowerPoint" resonates with me far more than...

Re: show 2000

I may have just terrified my team by squeaking very loudly and unprofessionally in the office - but tickets purchased, holiday and hotel booked, and day made! Show #20 for me and I can't imagine a better way to spend it - no doubt I'll be seeing lots of you lovely people there. (This does mean I now...

Re: show 2000

Ticket Buying Anxiety now replaced by Ticket Ballot Anxiety!

I did think I was being a bit keen by entering the ballot without yet knowing date or location . . . but will travel wherever, whenever, if I get the chance!
