I usually head to stuff at Celtic Connections, so I’ve got loads of showcase-type gigs lined up over the next few weeks with 4+ bands who I’ve never heard of. Also booked for full gigs by Orchestral Qawalli (I saw their live stream last year which looked incredible), Juliette Lemoine (cello with backing by Fergus McCreadie and chums), James Yorkston et al, Bonny Light Horseman and Lisa O’Neill.
The Delgados, Titus Andronicus and Lankum are the only other three currently lined up. I’ll have to make the most of them as I’ll be entering poverty mode in September by going back to uni.
Always enjoy him on TV but he was a bit when I saw him at the Fringe a couple of years ago. Gave him another go as this was in a small venue on a Saturday afternoon, was better than last time but still a few moments
Couldn’t decide between seeing him in Belfast where I live or seeing him back in my hometown for the novelty value (though I saw him there a few years ago as well) and then accidentally let Belfast sell out. Realised it’s impractical getting back to the hometown on a Friday evening straight from the office and my hometown friends weren’t fully committed so luckily managed to find a resale ticket for Belfast instead. I am enjoying him very heavily pushing my hometown show on twitter/instagram though because it’s not sold that well for some reason, feel bad for not boosting the numbers.
Have definitely seen him more times than any other comedian as he tours here loads and I ended up seeing him at the Fringe a few times as well despite this.
Quite impressed with how well his tour is doing. His show got upgraded to a bigger room here and then sold out and he’s now added an afternoon matinee in the original smaller room (bit jealous of the afternoon goers now)
Still have it but criminally underuse it. Only Access show I’ve watched was No More Jockeys. Meant to watch the Sarah Keyworth one to see if she’s worth seeing here soon but then didn’t. I was all over their streams in lockdown but rarely get round to watching their catalogue of stuff which I really should.
