Always lots to do and see in the last few months of the year.Â This is a very selective sample (i.e. the ones I intend to go to).Â If anybody else is going to any of these I’ll see them there.
October 22nd – Covered at the Queen’s Head, Horsham
Covered are a seven-piece covers band doing all sorts of stuff.Â A lot of Motown/Stax stuff but also some more recent songs.Â I’ve seen them a couple of times before, both times in this pub.
October 31st – Comedy night at the Lyric, Hammersmith
Regular monthly comedy night.Â Richard Herring comperes.Â Guests are David Schneider, Tony Law, Zoe Lyons and mystery guest.Â I’ve seen Herring a few times in London and Brighton and seen Zoe Laws at Komedia in Brighton.Â The hints are that this is a musical comedian which probably narrows it down to Bill Bailey or Tim Minchin.Â I’m going to guess at Minchin.
December 2nd – Spizzenergi at the Dublin Castle, Camden
Spizzenergi Xmas party, with the full band.Â A genuine punk survivor, with a very, very tight band behind him.Â First saw in 1979 but lost count of how many times I have seen the band since then.
December 19th – The Glitterband at Dingwalls, Camden
With support from Captain Sensible and Spizzoil.Â Very rare Spizzoil reunion because Pete Petrol now lives in NZ.
