• First Journal Entry - w99t! Gigs & Things

    I don't just listen to music. I audioscrobble. But I also get off my arse sometimes and get out to gigs. To be fair, I haven't seen that many artistes. The lucky few, however, are Travis, Elvis Costello, The Coral, Van Morrison, Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra!

    In less than a fortnight's time I will have seen Franz Ferdinand at their first T on the Fringe headline gig in Princes Street Gardens. YES! Do You Want To was premiered on radio and TV this week, and I used my clever geekboy skills to keep it forever and ever - at least until the new album comes out, then I shall get a better quality version.

    I have decided not to buy tickets for The Coral's special intimate show in Edinburgh. I don't think I'd be able to get into the Liquid Rooms. Harumph. At least I'm going to see them at the Glasgow Carling Academy in October.

    That's it, really. What a spraffy entry.

    Oh, yeah: This week, I have mostly been listening to... The Go! Team and Jack Johnson.

    Over, and out.
