On entering the venue, the Headway Hotel in Morecambe, Lancashire, I was greeted by many splendidly dressed (I hope you are getting the 'theme' of this weekend?) Ladies and Gentlemen! My ears were assailed with some fine music coming from the back of the Hotel. There is a large dance floor in front of the stage with a fully stocked bar to the left serviced by 'men from the future'. I quickly grab a glass of ale of the more international taste, Carlsberg, the preferred drink of my father!
Turning to the back of the Hotel are a number of tables scattered around the edges with diners eating the last remnants of the dinner I had not been allowed to partake of.

At some point my body spoke of perhaps slowing down and taking a break from these gyrations I had so foolishly given in to. I couldn't argue with this logic and headed back to the bar a little breathless.

Not long afterwards we are introduced to a Canadian band by the name of the New Jacobin Club! A friendly bunch of musicians, with guitarist, cellist, drummer, singer/theremin player and keyboards.

Climbing back up to my ivory tower I promptly fall into bed with uninterrupted sleep......zzzzzzz!
More to come.....the Sunday gig!
