Lexapalooza and Comic Relief (for London folk)

Post by Evan » Thu Jan 29, 2009 12:24 pm

Comic Relief is Friday March 13th, and I am toying with putting on a horror themed show in aid of this somewhere in London.

The question is - would you come? This is theoretical, as i dont know if it is feasible yet. It would be a four (ish) band bill and tickets would be a fiver with all proceeds to Comic Relief.

Evening or daytime?

It's a friday, so it would be the evening. 8-12 or something

Whoever said "maybe" can I ask why only maybe?

Would it depend on the bill?

I dont think this would be the greatest bill of all time but there is always a chance of (but no promise of) special guests. No matter what it will be worth a fiver, and we will be doing the usual nonsense to get you to part with your cash for a good cause

if i lived in london and it was a semi good line up (or even not) i would probably go.

£5 is good for gigs and giving the money to comic relief is def a good plan ...

i say go for it!

I will know by next week. Need a venue (Nambucca burning down has fucked me over a bit) and a budget, so unfortunately have to sit on my hands for a few days and figure out if it is possible

i'm not sure you will get a large crowd on comic relief night - surely everyone will want to stay at home to watch lenny henry?

As a not-hundreds-of-miles-from-London-but-not-close-either person, I would say that the later you make it finish (including the amount of time the headline act inevitably overruns by), and the further away from major transport interchanges you make it, the less likely I am to be able to go. I like being able to leave a London gig without either running like hell to catch last underground/train/coach, or trying to figure out which string of obscure night bus routes will get me back to civilisation. :)

EDIT: I'm not the maybe, before you ask.

We do NOT over run. Ever.

If the line-up was reasonable and depending on how far away it was, I'd go.

I am going to check it out at the ARU gig, but they are booked for the night I want to do unfortunately as that was the first place I thought of. I have it in mind for Lexapalooza 2009 in June though.
