On Friday night, apparently, the band she's is in 'clicked' into gear and started to belt it out. I think some of them were presently surprised. Should be an interesting gig.

What can I say about the gig itself, except that it was worth the trip, loud enough to hear clear and alter the perceptions later (people were lining the street half a kilometre away as we caught the taxi home), and well and truly worth the effort?
Not much, except that Acka Dacka was better i thought than when i saw them in the early nineties, as good as Brian Johnson is the crowd still misses Bon (thirty years since he left us), and that through the crowds outside were various smatterings of the various band scenes I've touched over the years. Was it totally coincidence that we settled down on an edge of the parklands bordering King William Street as it winds up Cathedral Hill, were grooving to 'Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap' in the festival atmosphere of black tee shirts and hard rock with the city going on about its business of a Tuesday night not more than five metres behind our backs, when we realised that the gathering on the hill a few metres beneath us was a smattering of the musical core of The Gaslight Tavern Crowd, whom half we knew and in front of whom we'd played some of our best shows? Or that I'd seen the guys in the various throw together bands they continually make up play most of the music that the Rock Gods were playing on the other side of the fence in the stadium? Or that I was wearing my Gaslight Teeshirt under the leather jacket? Who knows?
Good way to spend a Tuesday evening with 50000 of my fellow citizens. Indeed.

Me and the missus are still keeping the idea in the back of our minds of getting a band together again some time, with the emphasis shifting back to original music. It would be like starting over, in terms of equipment, getting - to - know - you with the band, hunting gigs, rehersals, etc. Not sure if we're quite up to that as yet, if for no other reason than that I enjoy having my weekends back too much!
I still pick up the guitar occasionally, so all is not lost.
I'll add more as it comes to hand.

This Friday the 13th they play at the Freeling Hotel from around 8 pm. The Freeling mob like them and there's a few heading up from Adelaide so it promises to be a good night.

Chasing Cars (first set)
In the second and third sets the pub filled up and Nancy and Steve cut loose.
Four hours later and it was only the regulars left. I grabbed a few photos, will put a selection up here sometime during the coming week (time permitting).
Promise I won't be so long between drinks in future!
