BAIBS Friday 26/04/13

Busked at again today. That bleeding piper. Turned my ipod up full but I could still hear the mournful drone. Thanks to Spector for trying to drown him out though. Never Fade Away has never seemed so apt. Further down and the standard young-lad-with-acoustic-guitar-and-Gallagher-haircut. Turned Fred and the boys off to have a listen and expecting Wonderwall was pleasantly surprised to hear him singing Matt Monro's On Days Like These. The word tunage sprang to mind. As did sunglasses, Italian Alps, red Lamborghini Miuras and bulldozers.

A busy weekend beckons but it's the best kind of busy. Behind the bar upstairs at The Leopard. Getting paid to watch live music. Perfect. Last night it was the brilliant Get Cubs. 5 young lads from Burton-on-Trent who are definitely going places. Radio 1 and 6music have already picked up on them. Think Dexters meets Little Comets and you're almost there. Tonight it's two of Donny's finest, local legend Frank Carline and the best rhythm and blues band around, The Avit Blues Band. And then tomorrow the award winning Hail To The Eskimo and all the way from Cornwall Auction For The Promise Club who apparently are sleeping on The First 45's sofa. It's rough with the smooth though. As excited as I am about these gigs The Leopard have just book The Defiled. My screamo days started and ended with Napalm Death's You Suffer. All 2 seconds of it. Still, each to their own.

And there's a small matter of Rovers final league game of the season away at Brentford tomorrow. A draw sees Rovers up. A defeat means the nerve shattering play off experience again. Two for two in play offs but I really don't fancy that route. I don't know whether to cling to a radio tomorrow afternoon are escape to the country between 3pm and 5.45pm. I'm also attending the Rovers end of season soiree at The Dome Sunday night which could be a muted affair or a glorious, messy party.

Sticking with sport local boy Jamie McDonnell fights Julio Ceja at The Keepmoat on May 11th for the IBF Bantamweight Championship Of The World. It's huge for the town and I've just found out I've two £175 tickets plus VIP passes to give away on the show. Seriously exciting times.

Well I've waffled enough and need to get my standard pre work nap in somewhere.
