I know how he’s feeling.

Will anyone turn up? Will one of the bands split up the day before the gig? What the hell is a PA anyway?

Anyhow, in 7 days JC will pretty much know the answer to all these questions because one week hence the Vinyl Villain is hosting his first gig.

The show will take place at Langside Halls in Glasgow next Saturday (19th November) and will be headlined by Butcher Boy playing their first hometown gig since the release of their latest LP ‘Helping Hands’. Support comes in the rather fine shape of Mr Adam Stafford (who presumably won’t be splitting up before the show!).

To return a favour from 3 years ago when JC offered up a couple of tickets to my first show (featuring De Rosa), I’m offering a pair of tickets to the Butcher Boy show.

To stand a chance of winning, all you have to do is

a) correctly answer the following question – Where is JC promoting his first ever gig? then …

b) email the answer to mmmm_music8 at hotmail.com (the proper address is on the right) by Tuesday 15th 5pm Fife time.

In the unlikely event of multiple correct answers, the winner will be selected at random from the correct entries.

If you don’t want to risk not winning then you can buy tix here.

Clear? Good. On you go.

A wee word too if you’re into advance planning.

Stu from the Tidal Wave of Indifference will be promoting his second show … in February 2012!

It’s a show packed with manic pop thrills, featuring as it does PAWS, Edinburgh School for the Deaf and Sebastian Dangerfield. The show will take place on 25th February at the Wee Red Bar in Edinburgh. Advance tickets here.
