Northampton?!

Post by SB » Thu Jul 28, 2011 9:52 am

So then, my neck of the woods! Is anyone else going to venture to it? I'm very happy as I can't make Reading or Leeds - huzzah!

Took me a while to find that, 2 hour drive to a relative hell hole for a gig? Hmm. Maybe.

Hell Hole, very true but it is a Hell Hole with a very convenient NPC opposite

I've never been to the venue - but don't really care too much. 20 minute drive - yes please!

...well certainly didn't see that one coming!

Not been to the roadmender in some time, something to do with their inability to book decent bands, or indeed anything other than cover bands, and getting rid of all the rock clubnights in favour of becoming another dance/drum n' bass hole.

Oh, and the Soundhaus closed years ago.

...why do I live here again?

I'd have gone to this gig, as it isn't too far from me, but i am going to Reading on that day. I guess i will have to wait until the Sunday.

I'm in!! oh and bugger the NCP 2 min walk up the road just before the bus station is a free car park ;-)

Was really surprised to see Frank playing here tbh, Roadmender as stated above has gone seriously downhill over the past couple of years with regards to it's bookings! someone there needs to get their fingers out of their arses and start getting it back on the map!!

getting ready for short trip down the road to see ya tonight Frank... step-daughters 15th birthday today and she can't believe you're playing just down the road (begged us to take her to Leicester O2 gig last year) and on her birthday too... you've made her day today. We can't wait to see you play later!
