Glasgow! You should all go see Midsummer at the Tron because it's bloody great. It's on until next Friday I believe.

OK. I will. (Tickets bought for Tuesday. This is my first post! If it's not great I will find you.)

It features love, sex, death, ukuleles, Japanese rope bondage and songs by Gordon Ballboy. What's not to like?!

Isn't that a line from one of the lesser known later verses of the Rogers and Hammerstein song "These are a few of my Favourite Things"?

I think Julie Andrews sings it in the outakes section on the DVD of The Sound of Music.

What would be the reaction of a non-indiepop type to it? Wondering if it would be easiest to go on my own!

Thanks for the Strange Powers tip, I've been dying to see it so very happy it's come to Scotland!

I think most people who go are not indiepop types. Although I'm somewhat biased, I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone - it is very sweet and very funny and makes you think things might be okay after all.

Oh yeah, it's not massively indiepop at all really. It definitely has universal appeal.

Sitting in the Tron bar having just watched Midsummer (a play with songs).
Superlatives escape me. Wonderful might cover it.
Just a lovely thing.

Thanks "islandhopper" you can pick all my nights out from now on.

You're very welcome. It's a joy to steer someone towards something great. Let's have more suggestions then, Glasgow. What should we do with our lives.

I'm now slightly excited. Just booked the hotel for the Bubblegum popfest. However I mucked it up by only booking 2 days. Due to the costs I think the third night is going to have to be somewhere cheaper. Then I'm off to North Wales the day after for a special acoustic gig. Whoo!

Well, that was a good suggestion. I liked that rather a lot. Wasn't sure how the songs would work, but they seemed to.

I think this: http://www.gft.org.uk/content/default.a ... 11/12/2010
looks pretty good, for next friday. If you like horror films, that is.

Glad everyone really enjoyed Midsummer. There's another David Greig play on at the Citizens until Saturday (http://citz.co.uk/whatson/info/the_monster_in_the_hall/). Think it's slightly youth orientated but it got a good review in The Guardian on Saturday (http://www.guardian.co.uk/stage/2010/no ... all-review).

Glasgows! I'm off to see Marnie Stern at the Captain's Rest in a couple of weeks - the ticket sez doors are at 8pm and since I've never been there what time do gigs usually go on to? Need to get back on the midnight (i.e. last!) bus along the M8.

in my experience the gigs at the captains rest start pretty late but are generally finished in time to have another drink upstairs before throwing out time, so you should be fine. that's the best i can offer; i don't tend to mark time by the clock, more by how many drinks i've managed to fit in before going home.

Ta. I emailed the Captain's Rest anyway and they say that gig curfews are 11.30pm so it'll be fine for midnight.
