And so it goes…

I’m not a huge fan of hot weather, and I’m deinfitely not a fan of humidity, so it’s been heavy going this past week; I was laid up with some sort of throat infection at the weekend and now I can’t sleep because everywhere is like a sauna.  Bah! Anyway, to the subject at hand, and I’ve decided rather than list everything I’ll just recommend the things that have leapt out at me for the coming week; I’m working on an easy way of aggregating all the upcoming events, but it’s slow going…

Wednesday night at the M-Club we have "the studio" — four indie/punk(ish) bands for £1, which can’t be bad.  Doors open at 7:30, and then at 10:30 (and for an extra £5) the event becomes Vanilla NITE — what that entails, exactly, is unclear, but I’m sure all will be revealed in the fullness of time.

On Thursday The Box offers up Groanbox, a band who are hard to describe but nonetheless worth a gander. No support acts listed, though, so it’s anyone’s guess.

Friday is a tough one to call — on the one hand Vavoom are at the Imp, and if they’re even half as good as they were last time I saw them then they’ll still kick ass; on the other hand Attack! Attack! are at the Box (along with Sgt Wolfbanger, Hi Alert, and The Day Before Mortality).  Needs some serious thinking about…

Old schoolers should have a whale of a time at the Limey over the weekend; Saturday offers an Alice Cooper tribute, and while I can’t imagine the stage show is anything like the real thing it should still be fun; on Sunday it’s the legends that are Dumpy’s Rusty Nuts, which I’d advise against missing if you have even one iota of common sense.

Looking ahead to next Wednesday, it’s a gig that I’ve been looking forward to for 15-20 years.  Yes, Warrior Soul are coming to the Box!  They never quite got the recognition or exposure they deserved, but they were a formative part of my youth and I’m bursting with anticipation to finally get to see them live.  Be there!
