not me. I'm going to some gig at JT Soar that evening because I'm too punk for the Rescue Rooms.

Re: Your Indietracks 2016 wishlist

I'd like to see Lambchop perform the album 'Nixon' in full at Indietracks.

Re: Indietracks 2015 Photos and Memories

The whole thing whizzed by. Loved every second. Obvs. Emma Kupa OWNED the festival, as far as I'm concerned. Both her "solo" set and Mammoth Penguins. So good. Especially dancing with Knibbles during Mammoth Penguins. Martha. Lost Pets cover of "Ban Marriage". All the other bands I saw. Playing foot...

Re: Cambridge

Apparently Flemmings, PAMS, Charla Fantasma and Younolovebunny are plying at the Corner House tonight, but there are no details online anywhere! There's a facebook event for it here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1606623256243286/ but it seems to have been set to "private" - I presume accidentally

Re: Indiepop: a celebration of diversity

This may work but it may be that, more generally, fans of hip-hop don't want to see a jangly band or indiepop fans don't want to see a rapper and make their choice accordingly. Commercial considerations come into play - I can think of plenty of gigs I've heard about where the support band was bottl...

Re: Indiepop: a celebration of diversity

I'm not a fan of the first point at all. I certainly don't want to be rolling up to the door with my gay card to get my gay discount. And like you say, it's near impossible to identify who would qualify for a discount. And it isn't financial viable for promoters who aren't breaking even half the tim...

Re: Indiepop: a celebration of diversity

Does anyone think these kinds of things ought to include social class? Absolutely. I think the fact that it's not included is reason enough to include it, if that makes any sense, because there does seem to be a very deliberate attempt to erase working class identities from mainstream culture. In f...

Re: Indiepop: a celebration of diversity

Price concessions used to be much more prevalent and meaningful than they are these days. And inclusiveness should extend to people on low or no incomes, right? I'm just wondering whether indiepop gig promoters could offer more in the way of discounts for people who are unemployed or low-paid. It's...

Re: Indiepop: a celebration of diversity

- Consider letting carers accompany disabled people for free / offering concessions. I like this one. I was vaguely aware that cinemas and theaters offer this sort of thing but had never thought or heard about it in the context of d.i.y gigs. I'm definitely going to introduce this. I'd love to be a...

Re: Breaking Bad

I put off watching Better Call Saul for a while because I wanted to binge on it. I think it's excellent. Much better than I was expecting. Like I really enjoyed Breaking Bad but at the end of the day, for me, it was just the televisual equivalent of a page-turner. It felt most of the time like they ...

Re: Indiepop: a celebration of diversity

I'm just thinking outloud here really and I have a few drinks inside me but I think it's maybe a mistake to think of indiepop as the scene. I mean, obviously, as has been well documented, the term means different things to different people but however you interpret it it does mean a specific music w...
