Yeah, next Thursday. I could have sworn I'd told you ages ago.

Tall Ships were incredible the other night at The Fleece in Bristol. Such a good band and absolute gents as well.

Saw Mama Rosin at the Grand Social in Dublin. Highly recommended. Cajun with a punk feel from Geneva. They supported Bellowhead on their last U.K. tour. Jon Spencer of the Blues Explosion produced their album. Everything about them is cool.

Kicked off last night's entertainment by grabbing something to eat & meeting a friend at The Monarch. On Wednesday it was sausage & mash, last night cheeseburger, both very good. Then to The Bouncing Souls at The Garage. I'd not seen them live before & not listened to much either but I expected to enjoy myself as they've just been on tour in the US with Gaslight & Dave Hause. & I did. I arrived not long before Cheap Girls' set while there was still space at the barrier - result as I quite like the barrier supporting me. About 20 minutes into the Souls' set the moshing got too hectic so I got a different perspective from the back & while I don't know the songs a lot of the enjoyment is being there as the energy & response from the crowd increases. & even a novice like me can tell which songs are the most popular with the fans. Was a good decision to go. :)

& tonight Fighting Fiction are opening for them in Brighton.

What was the surprise?

I went to the Bedford in Balham gig and that was fab. The new songs are sounding great. Dom Coyote on Fields Of June was good to see, if a little odd considering the lyrics.

Ah well I didn't want to say that Dom Coyote was on Fields of June but maybe he's a regular performer & I just hadn't seen him before.

I saw him join in with the song last summer when they played the Night Of Festivals in Nottingham. It was a little bit of a surprise cos i thought she was going to get Danny Champions Of The World to do it. I've also seen Chuck Ragan duet on it at the Revival Tour.

I wondered whether you were going to say there was a drummer and had missed her tweets about it.

Glad to see Dom Coyote is still going, saw him at 2000 Trees many years ago and then again when he was working with Kneehigh touring Don John.

I think he does Folk In A Box, where its one crowd member and one performer in a dark box. I didn't get the chance to experience it, I've only heard about it.

So... My friend is taking me to see the Summer Set on St. Patty's Day. I have no idea who they are. Pretty much just going because it will get me out of the house.

I am however looking forward to the Revival Tour at the end of the month.

i worked doing some online marketing for them a few years back. theyre super poppy. fun if youre into that sort of thing (ngl i loved their first album but havent listened to them since i stopped that internship)

jim lockey's headline show in PA (first in the states!) was awesome. on wednesday ive got them opening for dropkick in nyc, and debating going up to boston to see them one last time, gotta figure out logistics and such though

Being as I'm an old fella I will throw this one in. Went too see Stiff Little Fingers Tuesday at Cambridge and Friday at he forum. If you've never seen them give it a go if you have seen them you know what I mean.

Well supported by The Men They Coudnt Hang and a very strange but in an entertaining way Ed (ten pole) Tudor
