I'm excited about seeing Sidca again :band: , and being on the same bill as Spike :cheers:

Plus I've been lusting to see the Videos :love: ....every time I've intended going I've been playing the same night, but this time it's the same gig!

Bill Ely and the Catnips....rough 'n' tough 'n' slightly mental :rockon:

I don't know yet if it's a whole Kitchen Cynics Orch or a stripped-down one, or a solo one!

Is Zeenat up for it???????????????

Who decided on the cause?

The show was called by Edinburgh Chiapas Solidarity, and, as well as raise much needed funds for a worthy cause - to fund the construction of a health clinic in the autonomous municipality of 'Febrero de 16', it is hoped that it will also provide an opportunity to explore the possibilities in setting up a solidarity group here in Aberdeen.

:love: Well, I learned a lot from the film, which I suppose was one of the main points of the evening, but I also learned...

1) Hog is indeed God, but Kirk and Scorge are archangels in attendance!

2) Jake is a hairy God, and vengeance must indeed be hos!

3) Sidca as a duo are fascinatingly excellent...I would have bought a CD of their set, if they had switched their recorder on

4) Joe Ely & the Catnips ROCK!!! They were also very handsome!

5) the Videos are SEX personified (although the bass player's kilt wasn't to my personal tastes). I will now worship Lester Burnham from afar :love:

6) the Kitchen Cynics shouldn't rehearse with 3 members, and actually play with 2 :down:

7) Stewcat responds most excellently to record requests!!!!!!!!
