GOING DEAF FOR A LIVING: Edinburgh Gilded Ballroom
August 16 @ 10:30 pm - 11:30 pm
“Don’t miss this show. Saw him in Southampton a few months back, it was incredible. A roller coaster of emotion.” Pat Muldowney. Joiners Arms Southampton
A reworked special one hour version of my One Man Show, charting the life of a music fan from the first song you fall in love with, through the traumas of your first gig and the heartbreak of the first (but not last) band who broke your heart. Beware: includes anecdotes and war stories from 30 years, starting behind NME lines and finishing on the good ship 6Music.
From fanzine days to finding Blur; from the first Nirvana interview to the feral Gallagher Brothers; from being offered demos in supermarkets to the backstage area of Glastonbury.
Its “funny and warm” and includes a bit about gigs I shouldn’t have gone to.
