BAIBS Thursday 08/08/13

Who decides to put films like Fight Club on at such ridiculous times of night. As you'll see by today's opening track will show I watched it all. Still, avoided the early night that buggered me up yesterday. I could have recorded it I guess but I'd already missed the start and would have to have deleted either Family Guy or Alan Partridge. Can't be doing that.

Another shlog today. 57 minutes to doors opening. I'm trying to blog whilst surrounded by various Darlingtons, instruments and film equipment. They're filming a video. Here begins my bid to be an extra. I've got the hair for it.

MapFest this weekend and several people have been bemoaning the lack of information out there about this year's event. It hasn't been ideal. It should be said that of the 4 main organisers last year only 2 are involved this year, and only one of those still works at a venue involved .And one of them is heavily pregnant and the other's got married and done all that selfish honeymooning stuff. I mean, come on, priorities! But there's reportedly 16 venues involved. Surely at least one of those venues could have stepped up to get things out there? It should also be mentioned that a local free magazine (the one that offered to arrange all the sponsorship for the biggest show but didn't) offered to arrange all the printing of posters and maps (quite crucial for an event called MapFest) but again didn't deliver. This is what I'm reliably informed has happened at least.

MapFest 2012 was great for Doncaster as a whole not just the music scene and venues/pubs involved. It would be a shame if it struggled this year. So get yourselves into Donny Friday night and all day Saturday and catch some live music. Details are out there, it just takes some searching. A lot of venues have their own listings on facebook, others are on

Speaking of MapFest, Sick Note Tez is playing at The Red Lion on the Saturday and joined me on today's show to give it a little plug. Another quality live set from this angry not so young man. It's always a joy having him on. He's also one of the Do It Unplugged artists though if you follow him on facebook you'll be more than aware of that.

Anyway, gotta dash. Ice to fetch and vegan menus to put out.
