I think I might not see Sonic Boom tonight. What's wrong with me?

I can't find anyone to go with me.

Plus, it's the Spitz, and their shows go really late. I didn't get much sleep last night, and the idea of him not even going on until my bedtime is not fun.

Someone talk me into/out of it.

On the plus side, it's Kosmische, which means that the inbetween music and support bands will be good.

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:26 (seventeen years ago) link

On the minus side, I have seen Sonic Boom twice in the past year.

He was very good, but that's a lot of Sonic Boom.

On the plus side, the 133 leaves from Liverpool St Station, so it would be very easy to get home.

you have to go cause i can not

On the plus side, the Spitz is a grebt venue.

On the minus side, you have to climb all those bluddy stairs.

OK, that's a good reason. But what can I do, put it in a box and send it to you?

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:31 (seventeen years ago) link

x-post... but there is a LIFT!!!

And it's not too hot today, either. The Spitz in July can be bloody murder.

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:32 (seventeen years ago) link

Maybe I will take myself out for dinner on Brick Lane first or something...

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:34 (seventeen years ago) link

yes, please send it in a plain brown envelope(sorry for the flakey email a few weeks back btw)

kephm, Monday, 26 July 2004 15:35 (seventeen years ago) link

....I've never eaten in the cafe on the ground floor. Is the food there any good?

MarkH (MarkH), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:35 (seventeen years ago) link

You must go in the name of Elvis and I. Oh yes.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:36 (seventeen years ago) link

Flakey email? You sent me an email, but I don't recall it being flakey...

And I don't know if the food is good or not. I've never eaten there, coz it's too bloody expensive. I get cheap Indian eats on Brick Lane. Or maybe bagels.

OHMIGOD, A BAGEL!!! THAT IS WHAT I WANT FOR DINNER!

Ned, I knew you and Elvis would say something to that effect. Boxed dronerock, coming up for all of you.

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:36 (seventeen years ago) link

going out on a monday night is always a challenge to me

kephm, Monday, 26 July 2004 15:36 (seventeen years ago) link

Not to me. I have Tuesdays off.

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:37 (seventeen years ago) link

Ned, I knew you and Elvis would say something to that effect.

I am patently obvious (I am also trying to give some good cheer given how your month has gone).

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:37 (seventeen years ago) link

I was talking about Spacemen 3 in the office the other day and this guy who'd just had a meeting with my boss looked at me funny and said "I'm godfather to Jason Spaceman's child". Strange.

Markelby (Mark C), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:38 (seventeen years ago) link

Well, the good news is that Joe is not going to be going.

But since it is Kosmische, I bet many others from his (my?) social scene would be there, and I don't know how awkward that will be, either. If I see Mark P, I will punch him.

x-post... whoa! Cool!

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:39 (seventeen years ago) link

I don't know if I should go out, because it would cheer me up.

Or if I should go home and sleep because that would be better for me.

Actually, I should rephrase that. If I see Mark P, I will be too sorely tempted to ask him who Joe's New Screw is, and if he is still seeing her, and that would be like punching myself in the gut.

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:41 (seventeen years ago) link

I would go because goodness knows what he's up to now.

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:42 (seventeen years ago) link

But... but... he's up to making lots of droning and wubbing and has extra special electronic tamboura like you can get in Southall.

At least, that's what he was doing the last two times I saw him.

Maybe I can just hide somewhere and not talk to anyone. Except there isn't really anywhere to hide in the Spitz.

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:43 (seventeen years ago) link

Put on a Jason mask and don't say anything to anybody. Laffs!

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:44 (seventeen years ago) link

Heh heh. Jason lives really near there so you never know...

OK, I will make up my mind in the next ten minutes, because I should leave at 6 if I am going. At least I can walk there, it's pretty easy to get there.

The only thing really stopping me is the social fear. I'm too tired to deal with awkwardness, I just want to sit on the floor and feel the wub take me away.

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Monday, 26 July 2004 15:53 (seventeen years ago) link

Wear sunglasses ... lurk in dark corners ... spliff it up.

sexyDancer, Monday, 26 July 2004 20:27 (seventeen years ago) link

Is the food there any good?

no.

kyle (akmonday), Monday, 26 July 2004 22:38 (seventeen years ago) link

Aw, that was good. I'm glad that I went.

I didn't see anybody that I knew, which was actually kind of a welcome relief.

I realised when I got to the Spitz that I hadn't been there in nearly a year. I missed it!

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Wednesday, 28 July 2004 09:02 (seventeen years ago) link

ray!

mark grout (mark grout), Wednesday, 28 July 2004 09:15 (seventeen years ago) link

Ah, and it was good and LOUD, too!

Support bands were excellent. Hypnotique, who was this sexy chiX0r with a backing tape and a saxophone and a theremin singing strange lounge songs about odd subjects. Cotton and Mcsomething (?) who were Hawkwind-style spacerock/psychedelia with a hippie flute player and a wacky Japanese chiX0r on theremin. Good fun.

And then Professor Boom came on and demonstrated his Wubulators for an hour. Synthies and Putneys all over a table, back to the audience, pure drone, pure WUBWUBWUWB with pretty textures and scintillating bits and loveliness indeed. I was glad to be sitting down, though.

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Wednesday, 28 July 2004 09:24 (seventeen years ago) link

Spiffo. :-)

Ned Raggett (Ned), Wednesday, 28 July 2004 11:46 (seventeen years ago) link

I'm glad you went Kate, not only coz you liked it, but coz if you hadn't you would spend the ensuing weeks (months?) wondering what it would've been like and cursing yrself for not going.

MarkH (MarkH), Wednesday, 28 July 2004 12:03 (seventeen years ago) link

wubwubwub

kephm, Wednesday, 28 July 2004 12:07 (seventeen years ago) link

Kate, why is it a problem that you can't find anyone to join you? Do you never go out to gigs alone?

jesus nathalie (nathalie), Wednesday, 28 July 2004 12:07 (seventeen years ago) link

I used to go to gigs alone all the time, in fact, it used to be my preferred way of gig-going.

The main reason that I wanted someone to go with me was more for backup, in case Joe or any of that gang were there. I don't mind going to gigs by myself, but I don't like being in awkward social situations by myself.

And actually, I probably wouldn't have been wondering what it was like. I've seen Sonic so many times I know what his shows are going to be like, usually. That's not an insult. I mean, you don't go to a Beethoven recital and wonder what it's going to be like, do you? I knew it would be good.

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Wednesday, 28 July 2004 12:21 (seventeen years ago) link

I nearly went to that concert, for I was in London on Monday. But I didn't go because I was *tired*.

DV (dirtyvicar), Wednesday, 28 July 2004 12:21 (seventeen years ago) link

Vicar-Dude, SB gigs are *great* for when you're tired. I was exhausted, but I sat down and let the wub wash over me. :-)
