Week of Gigs
The leather of our shoes will be worn out by the time we stop touring this week. We have three shows – count ‘em! - in the next seven days, and we’re already tying the banjos onto the back of the jalopy. Queasy Joe keeps fiddling with the knots to make sure they’re tight enough. He gets like that.
On Tuesday, 26th June we’ll be hosting some of our nearest and dearest – friends, collaborators and those who made the album possible – at Birmingham’s very fine Warehouse Cafe. The guys and gals at Watehouse have been amazing in helping us organise this fiesta, and we’re salivating at the very thought of the food that will be the main part of the celebrations. Oh, and we’ll play a set at the end as a kind of second dessert.
Our second cafe of the week comes in the shape of Balsall Heath’s mighty Ort, where the equal formidable Grandma Chic will be hosting a retrotastic fashion show with live music from ourselves, some jokers called the Mellow Peaches, our regular showmates Abie’s Miracle Tonic and the splendiferous Little Sister. It’s possible that Doc DW may well also be compering, so expect plenty of snake oil in addition to garments of the highest possible style.
We round off the week in Cheltenham on Friday, 29th June with a show at The Vine, as part of the annual charity festival Vinestock. Chock-full of talent each and every year, we’re really looking forward to our first Spa town show, and believe we’re sharing the bill with the moderately interesting Dan Hartland.
