Tonight, Jitterz are at Duffy’s Bar with Gallows High, Hanzo and The Marlon Edge Band, tomorrow, Dead Question at Firebug with Dirty Thrills, THE KILLING FLOOR and The Jav’lins, DO NOT MISS IT!!! We’ve been plotting and scheming, its going to be insane!
Last night was so good! really enjoyed playing with Jitterz, plus an unplanned poetry set, feature acts Jodie Hannis and Shruti Chauhan were incredible too. I’m playing at The Cradock Open Mic Night launch tomorrow evening, not singing because my voice isn’t doing too well, but poetry stuff like this…
Look at the shiny new video Jitterz did! Our debut single ONE GOOD SONG is out now, find it on Bandcamp for free (or donate to the face-paint fund if you like), find us tonight at this: £Free show! Poetman Presents: What You Saying? with Jitterz & DJ
So after last week being a bit mixed, I did my poetry set at Find The Right Words at The Western, which was great! Since then been working with Jitterz on something new and exiting coming soon… (yeah, we thought about this, so we’re being all mysterious like that) we also have a gig today at Jumpin’ Jacks, Leicester and tomorrow at The Shed, then I’m playing Oxjam Manchester Takeover with Acid Haystack on Sunday, so I’ll be pretty wiped out by Monday, but I’m looking forward to all this!
This past week’s been a strange one, great gigs at The Musician Pub and The Exchange with Jitterz at the weekend, then an awful Monday, but then saw Slaves and Estrons for £2 at The Cookie last night which was great apart from some old man attempting to break my arm, but apart from the bullshit I put up with this week, generally a good one, also I’m looking forward to tonight’s gig:
A fair few new things since my last post…
Firstly, I put on a gig for Natty last week! It was a secret, unplugged gig at All About Daisy (which is this awesome recycled gifts shop everyone should check out), with Hannah Haley supporting. An awesome experience that one was!
Secondly, I recorded a poem, and I’m trying to write more of them. Anyway, I’m performing at Jess Green‘s Find The Right Words at The Western on Weds 21st Sept.
and last of all, the launch of my band Jitterz! Consisting of Beth Morris and myself, we play Punky Rock ‘n’ Roll and pull weird faces, great shirts and bad dancing at gigs. Check us out at The Musician on Fri 16th Sept, supporting Fleetwood Bac, and at Jumpin’ Jacks on Fri 30th Sept supporting The Tuts among other gigs.
In the past week, I played three gigs: Pi Bar open mic. last Sunday, and Dead Question at The Shed Friday, then at Redhill Rocks RMF today, so many great things about them and all a pleasure to play, next, I’m playing with Beth Morris supporting Fleetwood Bac at The Musician Pub and we’ll have the proper band stuff up and running by then, so look out for that!
