Gigpost: 2008

I'll try to keep this updated, but these are the gigs that I've been to so far this year. First band are headliners, any supports after the / s. I'll put in italics the band that I was mostly there for and if any bands were playing that I missed or was at the bar talking to mates during I'll bracket them. And I've just realised that it re-sends to RSS feed readers when I update it, so I'll try and keep updates to once a month or so.

HI JACK I JUST FOUND THIS.
THIS IS NICE.
DID YOU LIKE SLOW CLUB?
WERE THEY WORTH GOING TO SEE IYO?
I HOPE YOU DID.
I LIKE THEM.
I FELT LIKE WRITING IN CAPITALS BECAUSE IT CAN BE FUN EVEN THOUGH I HAVE A SORE HEAD AND CAPITALS IS LIKE SHOUTING.
I HAVE AN ECONOMICS EXAM TOMORROW.
IT'S HARD AND SCARY.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO IT FOR ME?
THANK YOU PLEASE.
THAT IS ALL.

I do like Slow Club. Very much. They make me happy. Hopefully they'll play Latitude because I can't think of many things better than watching them on a hot summer's day in a field. I might just ask them nicely if they'll play in a field somewhere for me. That would be nice.

Good luck with the exam. I can't imagine I'd be much good at doing it for you, sorry! I'll have a go if you do all six of my exams for me?
