That's how the kids speak, don't they? It's been a little while since we spoke- family life, gigs, work, blah-de-blah-de-blah... Anyhoo, just a quickie to plug a gig my band are doing in Birmingham (well nearly...) The mighty ANORAKULA would like to invite you, (yes, even YOU...) to the delightful Bear Tavern, Bearwood Rd, Bearwood on Friday December 9th for an evening of pre-Christmas frivolity. Waddaya mean you've never heard of Birmingham's finest purveyors of top quality popular music from the repertoire of such artists as Wilco, The Move, the Dandy Warhols, REM, Beatles, Who etc etc? Where have you been? We'll be ably supported by the Celtic pop of Colin Hall's Gypsy Blood (Colin was a mainstay of the early incarnation of Dexy's Midnight Runners, dontchaknow...) and the delightful Esther Turner - the acoustic Avril Lavigne it's OK to like. The fun starts at 8.30 and may finish late, so warn the babysitter. Bring your dancing shoes. It's £3 in advance and £4 on the door, with all the proceeds going to Acorn Children's Charity - a cause very dear to the hearts of all those here at Big Plans. Earlybirds get a free Samosa. Does it get any better than that?
So, to recap, It's on Friday, December 9th at the Bear in Bearwood. The music will be ace (especially the Bass playing...), you'll get free Indian food and the admission fee goes to a great cause. My advice to you is simple- be there or be the object of derision and ridicule for the rest of your life. No pressure.
