so for the first time in my gigging life we got a dressing room. w00t! it was brilliant. we were playing a BotB at Newcastle University student's union, in the second room, and we got to use the dressing rooms there. we had to share with another band but it was pretty damn good all the same. the place came with a stocked min-fridge of red bull and another with water and beer. never before have i had a more pleasant experience as this playing gigs. it made us feel like a proper band. plus i used the same toilet as used by some of the bigger names in the business, i think the likes of Korn, alexisonfire and many others have been in there. also, i feel drinking 7 or 8 cans of red bull before a set really adds to your stage presence. the gig was filmed for itv as well. so any of you people in the north of england check out the local programming on itv in the next week or so. i believe it's also going to be on the tyne and tees part of http://www.itvlocal.com. so everyone should go check it out when it's up p.s: we didn't win though, but i think we came 3rd. not too bad really. there were some really good bands on.
