    It would be fantastic if Time Out could write a new blurb for Nick - I think that one's going on about 10 years now :blink:

    bigchris Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Does anyone have any prior experience of the Union Chapel ?

    The reason why I ask, is that I was told by El ( & someone else backed her up ) that apparently you can not take alcohol into the actual room that the artist is performing in ... as it's a chuffing church ... not that I'm at all religious, but I thought that at least red wine might be allowed ?

    I need to know, to try and determine whether I'll drive in or not ... I didn't want to, but being out on a Friday night in London and not being able to drink sounds like a mare !!

    That is the case, Chris, sorry. But it has never bothered me too much as I time it with the smoke break!

    Chris, was just gonna write and see what pub you wanted to meet in beforehand ;) We could just get a few (dozen!) down then...

    I'll Just have to hope that he plays Blue Sky Thinking, followed by Love Junky ... that should give me time to hobble out to the bar and whatever !

    I know this will seem like sacrilege to some, but I don't think that drinking copiously is mandatory at gigs. I drove to the Cambridge one, had one glass of orange juice, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Not that I'm exactly the epitome of sobriety, but I'm just saying like... :angelsad2:

    I agree Paul! But the novelty of having a car I can drive to Scottish gigs hasn't worn off yet :wink:

    Is it likely to be possible to pay on the door?

    Tried ringing UC, but everything seems a bit hit and miss over there.

    Probably busy putting in new alcohol detectors....

    Well I agree totally Paul ... that's what I did at Reading and will do so at Basingstoke .... but everyone ( the venue, the goverment, the greenies ) recommend NOT driving into London ... so I'm going for the expensive ( 6 times more expensive ) option of using public transport ... and as that is the case and spending more time and money to get in there .... it's just a pain that we can't sit back and have a beer and watch the gig ... especially on a Friday night !!

    Well to be honest ... I've not been drinking in that area of London, since Roy played the three nights at the Garage ... back in ... chuff knows when !! But a quick google makes me think http://www.fancyapint.com/pubs/pub98.php would be a good place to go .... but at the mo ... I have NO idea what time I will be there ... all I know is that due to the stupid drinking rule in the venue ... the support acts ain't gonna get a look in from me !!

    Well let me know when you're around, we're staying near Kings X so not that far away...

    I'd better make the most of this one considering we'll be stuck in Soton the next night with f-all to do :cursing: My gig karma sucks this year...

    Oh Chris, this is probably one show where you shouldn't miss the supports too! Mike Dignam, just 19 years old, I have heard quite a few people saying now that he is pretty amazing. And Georgia will not be solo for this show, but playing with full string quartet.

    Georgia with string quartet, now that sounds good, I saw her at the cellars and she has an amazing voice, the bonus of the SQ makes me feel that we missed out, i'll be interested to read what people think of her especially with the backing.
    I bought Nick's cd but my daughter opted for Georgia's.

    I enjoyed hearing her as well but it completely slipped my mind to get her CD.

    At the Cellars we had a harpist followed by a Harper whereas at the RFH we will have a Harper followed by a Harpist. Perhaps I need to get out more. :biggrin:

    She definitely has a haunting quality to her voice, and so perfect for the wonderful Chapel setting. Some numbers she sang solo and joined by the three string set on a few.
    Definitely worth seeing.

    Nick did good too! Standing ovation at end - and no people weren't already standing, tis a church remember so we were all pewed!

    Absolutely and completely stunning, with gorgeous acoustics. Much as I love sweaty and grungy venues where you stand up and your feet stick to the floor, I now want Nick to play the Chapel regularly :biggrin: The Harpervirgins I met were highly impressed by himself, as I was by Georgia (wow, what a voice, highlighted in there). And thanks to everyone who bought the new CD, it was VERY popular!

    More later, including the setlist. Need lunch. :biggrin:
