Well, as you could probably imagine, after yule celebrations the start to the new year is kind of quiet. At least, that’s what we’re seeing; it’s all broken, all over, only empty wrappers and toffee pennies left in the Quality Street tin, your Lynx Africa deodorant set is in the cupboard, Christmas cracker hat left on the floor of the bedroom where it fell, red wine-stained glasses on the side but no refill. You might just as well go back to work……
Wednesday 4th, Thursday 5th I got nothing for you, I’m afraid, enter sad face emoji.
Friday 6th and there’s open mic at the Barge on Honey-Street, while Shades of Seattle’s MTV Unplugged set featuring Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots and more at the Vic, Swindon.
Saturday 7th and you’ll find the talented Adam Woodhouse at The Three Crowns, Devizes.
The Beat play MECA, Swindon, which must be Editor’s Pick of the Week, told I was going, but still no official invite! What the hell is that all about?! January blues really kicking in now!
Meanwhile, The Bowie Experience play the Vic, and there’s magical comedy at the Wyvern with The Mind Mangler’s Member of the Tragic Circle show.
Sunday and Monday, I got nothing to report, but Tuesday 10th there’s a lunchtime piano recital at Pound Arts, Corsham with Emma Abbate & Julian Perkins.
Wednesday 11th and being the Southgate reopens on the Monday, the usual acoustic jam will be on.
However, after this first week, things are really beginning to look up, so keep in the loop, check out our event calendar, it’s a noticeboard of upcoming fun!
