Another 'Gig' Booked

After a gap of no shows for quite a few years (1). & after seeing The Stray Cats on their 40th anniversary tour last June (at Manchester Apollo) my wife suggested we see some more

So, a while ago, I gently suggested a band at Holmfirth Picturedrome (who are appearing later this month) & even after listening/watching on YouTube she said "Yes":eek:
(hence we have tickets)
They are...………… Hayseed Dixie :okay:

I was a bit unsure of the reaction I'd get, as last summer, on one of out multiple trips to Birmingham (that we had to undertake back then), she heard them on the CD player in my car
Maybe it was one track that really got to her?
We'd stopped at the services, & restarted, when ….. 'She Was Skinny When I Met Her' came on...………….:blush:


And, today
I'd recently read Debbie Harrys autobiography, & was idly browsing her (& Blondie) YouTube
And another band came up; 'Bootleg Blondie'

On looking they're appearing at a venue in Wakefield

A quick trip over to her Office this morning, as I had to move furniture anyway, & she was played them on YouTube
Once more, a "Yes" was forthcoming, so it was a trip into the city-centre, to buy tickets from the agent:okay:
Who, I know, but haven't seen for (probably) 25+ years

Has Anyone Seen Them, & Wish To Comment?

1. Previous to the 'Cats', it was probably Steve Earle at Leeds Grand Theatre, on a promo tour for his 'Townes' CD, or Kate Rusby at Wakefield Cathedral

Went to see Showaddywaddy at the Holmfirth Picturedome a couple of years ago. It was brilliant - best night out I've had for years. A great music venue with a proper "sticky floor".

I may have fallen asleep in the kebab shop on the way back to the Airbnb at 1am ish :blush:

Saw Adam Ant at The Picturedome last year and its an ace venue. The previous time I saw him was in Bradford dive pub in the late 1970's. I'd not heard of Bootleg Blondie but it looks a fun night out.:okay:

Looks really good man. The drummer is the star of the show IMVHO...
 
I've got tickets for a couple of upcoming gigs, Föllakzoid in Leicester in the middle of April and Yes in Birmingham early June. In the present virus situation I wouldn't be at all surprised if neither go ahead.
I've also got tickets for Gong in Stroud in November, that one should be ok.

The above talk of tribute bands reminded me of seeing the Australian Pink Floyd in Tewkesbury Roses Theatre quite a few years ago, couldn't see them performing at such a venue these days.
Also saw a Doors tribute band in Gloucester three or four years ago, that was a good gig.
