Well, by tomorrow evening I'm going to be flying over the Atlantic with PBM (Poor Boy Music), embarking on our first UK tour! We'll be there from the 9th to the 23rd, playing a minimum of five shows and almost certainly more that I haven't been told about yet. I have to miss two weeks of school for this, and while this will make the rest of my semester a living hell, something tells me the trip will be more than worthwhile Any info that I should know about what to expect, from fellow travelers or UK natives alike, would be appreciated at this point, though I am a bit late in asking Anyway, here's the word on the gigs I know about: Fri 12 Sept, 9pm - Puss In Boots ... Stockport, England Nangreave Road, SK2 Tel : 0161-456 5200 Sat 13 Sept - The Ridgegate ... Macclesfield, England Sun 14 Sept - IN THE CITY 2003 Jabez Clegg ... Manchester, England Mon 15 Sept - Comedy Store ... Manchester, England Tue 16 Sept - Band on the Wall ... Manchester, England I believe all of these shows are in the Manchester area. I'm told others may be in the works; there's talk of hitting Scotland, for example...I have no confirmation yet, though. I know the info is even spotty for many of these gigs; for some reason I haven't been able to get many showtimes... Regardless, if anyone can find a way to make it to any of these shows, I'd be happy to see you; I'd definitely like to meet some of you TBers across the pond! If you're interested, my band plays horn-driven rock with elements of pop and punk. We have decently long mp3 samples of every track on our new album available on our website, www.pbmmusic.com ... It's possible that new tour dates may appear there after I've left the US too, so check it out. Hope to see some of you there!
