Default We raised the roof

What a fab night.

Was having my dinner beforehand watching the news and was shocked to see a load of familiar faces on there. Loads of loonies standing outside venue, then interviews with bruno, elise and michele, also a very enthusiastic performance by marg running after astro.

Still jetlagged from holiday but managed to hold up just. First stop was wagon and horses where it was nice to catch up with a fair few loonies (though most were already at venue by that time). Still SteveO, Tik, Jamie, Matt, Mia, Nige and Sting where there. Was also nice to meet for the first time 1in8, Ani, JohnnyP, Mr Sid. Have i forgotten anyone? Probably.

Headed off to the venue just in time for gig. It's a nice place and the crowd was already in high spirits. Toilets were a bit iffy but apart from that it's great. Eventually we heard the intro music and on they came. All i can say is wow. They improve every time i see them. Duncans voice was perfect. A couple of technical hitches from drummer ( start of RRW) but i'm told that was a programming issue and not his fault. Crowd were great and were all dancing and singing along all the way through. It was over all too quickly although was on my last legs by the end so couldn't have lasted much longer. Saw lots of loonies after - Annie, neps, sarah, tanya, (some of them had been there queing since 3:30pm bless em), puma, elise, bruno, michele, marg, jane, jen (how you feelin now jen lol?). Most went back to pub after gig although i couldn't face the prospect with work next day so stayed behind for a sitdown and couple of drinks before heading home for some much needed sleep. At work now boo.

Got a few pics but they didn't come out very well because of lighting. Will pop em up later though.

Sleep, what's that Helena?

It was lovely to catch up with so many loonies last night and help raise the roof - but I think I'm glad I missed watching myself on tv! Still it was all in a good, cause even if those of us outside the venue in the afternoon are now infamous in Brum

Well worth the trip up, and the resultant insomnia

Heard the show online, it was great, loving Duncan, great seeing his confidence grow and grow this last year, it was fab hearing a live gig so perfectly, what a treat And all you's loonies sounded great ! I was beaming with pride from hearing UBies but also from knowing that the crowd noise was being made by mostly people I know
