The Tinderbox Coffee Shop
It’s definitely the nicest gig I’ve had for a while. Well, it’s the only gig I’ve had for a while, but you know what I mean. I try to be as relaxed as possible (and I’m sure that the irrigation helps too, thanks Mark Baxter with your tips for Rock ‘n’ Roll singers). Joan, Alastair and Aiden turn out (which is nice) but Joan and Alastair have to jet off (I intended to take a break, but by the time I noticed the, uh, time, it was already 8:30 and too late to stop). I petered out rather at the end, but still it was more fun than previous even. And at a couple of points everybody ran out of conversation at the same time, giving the illusion that they were listening, which was nice.
