Yeah, I know, right, there was an element of pessimism in my last piece regarding over-excitement at the prospect of the return of live music, but I wasn’t being cynical, just cautious. In the coming months I want to highlight hopeful upcoming gigs and festivals, the ones which tickle my fancy, but can’t promise this for all, so keep checking our event calendar for updates; I’m working on it, slowly!
One thing which will always be a general issue, which I didn’t cover, is that capacity will be lower, ergo tickets scarcer. Prime example; what should be a fantastic night for indie-fans, when our progressive, with a slice of retrospection, indie-pop favourites Talk in Code do Swindon’s Level III on June 5th, bringing with them another favourite here on Devizine, Atari Pilot, and solo Americana performer, Sarah C Ryan, who I’ve yet to hear live, but hopefully will. Tickets are limited to eighty, so, if you want to get in on these things, you have to be the early bird.
You may take heed of my warning about events only being possibilities at this delicate time, and caution is understandable when forking out a fortune for a festival ticket. This will unfortunately be a spanner in the works for larger events, and I only hope is something they can digest financially. It truly is a rock and hard place. The difference here is a gradual, little toe in the water, as the hit for my example, Talk in Code at Level III, is far easier on the wallet, at £6.60; can’t complain about that!
As grand adverts for summer festivals take to our newsfeeds, I believe the reopening of live music will be concentrated, to start with, on the smaller, grassroots gigs; and this one guarantees to be a blast. Tickets HERE.
