And yet again I point to Richard Francis.. this is a moment of glory!!

bxckxtrxdxr  said about 8 years ago:

fasty, Richar'ds not here for long, and this is the only gig he's got lined up as far as i know. (he's here from 7th to 12th i think).

fastcanoe  said about 8 years ago:

He should so play in my house with myself, Unique Oil Free Air and Meatwave on the Friday 9th...

Pelt and Holler  said about 8 years ago:

these shows look great. and i can walk to the empress from my house, even better!

nishiki  said about 8 years ago:

i can't wait to walk from the empress to break into pelt&holla's digs.

Pelt and Holler  said about 8 years ago:

you could also take the tram for a very quick getaway. oh wait, don't steal from my house! unless it's our rubbish. i think we missed bin day. hmmm.

nishiki  said about 8 years ago:

i wouldn't break in to steal, just to crash on your couch
i'd take you to sugardough in the morning, promise

Pelt and Holler  said about 8 years ago:

that's okay then, 'shiki! THIIIIIIIS TIIIIIMEE..... BREAKFAST PIE! the chocolate crossiants are so amazing too, but a bit intense.

nishiki  said about 8 years ago:

that entire place is intense. breakfast pie next time for sure. i reckon i could sway some sort of pancake related munchable. and we order drinks FIRST.

Pelt and Holler  said about 8 years ago:

either that, or just do takeaway. because it really is so crammed in there. maybe they could outsource food to the empress? the empress menu looks good, but pricey. could totally go one of the vanilla pancakes!

Pelt and/or Holler  said about 7 years ago:

Once again, a great show! Totally dug the Chesworth set, and P/B/B were great as always. Gotta admit though that the last duo did absolutely nothing for me. Nothing at all. Oh well.

Chesworth was great peltandholler, hey!
