Hopefully not stripped down...all that pasty flesh!!!

Don't want to miss this...I like Kartta and No Pasaran, plus I've 'Black holes in the sand' and 'Flashlight Seasons' by Gravenhurst ('The Diver' is one of my favourite songs, so I was annoyed I missed them last time....think I had a gig the same night or something).

Will this be proper Kartta or strippped down Kartta?

Proper. New drummer, Ali, will be playing his first show for us. We'll have two new songs and a rearrangement of "Crazy Years", too.

And while I'm here, we've just added two live tracks to our space which were recorded with our previous drummer, Martin, at The Moorings bar a couple of months ago. "She Bought A Car To Trash" and "RMTC" are the live ones.

If it's logistically possible, the two Kartta singers will be on the actual dancefloor area, leaving the others some room on the stage!

Come and heckle. We like it.

!

5 tickets plus 2.50 in postage and booking fees if you buy on-line.

50% add on is a bit steep, no?

(fair enough, the add on is less than the price of a pint but the principle is there)

Are there no tickets on sale at One Up at all?

There definitely was at the very least.

I'm sure they'd still have. Though they apparently had to re-order twice, so I dunno...

i know that the postage and booking fees may seem a bit steep, however all ticket operators do charge this and there is nothing we can do about it other than recommend that you either check out one-up or turn up in time for the doors opening at 10pm and possibly face queing for a bit to get in.

obviously bigger bands and guests cost us a bit more to get up here and put on - hence the more expensive door charge.

To be honest, if it said 7.50 a ticket, I wouldn't care. But to pay a 50% surchase just for the priviledge of not queueing or having to take a trip down town to get a ticket is annoying.

as i said already, there is nothing we can do about the charges incurred by ordering tickets through a ticket operator... i guess if you do have a problem with charges then you should speak to the operators directly as it is a standard fee...

as the event is only a few days away, the only option is to collect the ticket on the night, and with this option the charge is only 1 not 2.50. you get to skip the queue as well when collecting your ticket.

hope that clears things up.
