Right. I'm officially in the concert promotion biz this spring. For one night only—9 May 2009.
Hurrah, that's my birthday. To celebrate, I'm booking (surprise!) The Rapiers for, well, an all-Rapiers night at the Amersham Rock 'n' Roll Club, in Amersham, North London, way out on one of the termini of the Metropolitan Underground.
The cheery 250-seat club, which feted The Rapiers' 25th Anniversary celebrations last spring, has treble the usual slogans to entice you there:
- "We're bringing on back the good times!"
- "The last bastion of '60s and '70s live music starring original hit artists!"
- "Drinks at club prices instead of high theatre prices!"
Please come, please enjoy, please book. "Quality costs," as I'm wont to say, but expect tickets at only £10 or so from the ARNRC, with details on the venue's site in the next fortnight.
As a special FAB bonus, besides two all-out rockin' sets, I'm hoping The Rapiers double up on the rhythm front by engaging both Dave Lawes and Neil Ainsby to make appearances.
