Confederacy of Dunces – July Residuncy
So, Bits of Shit have a redundancy, sorry, residency at the glorious Tote during the month of July. I probably should have thought this one through before blindly accepting the last minute offer from Amanda. A band had obviously pulled out, left her high and dry so we came to the rescue. Unfortunately there are a few things working against us in taking this gig that I didn’t consider at the time it was offered to me. They are:
- It’s in the middle of winter and most people are too precious to leave the warmth of the living room at this time of year.
- A lot of my friends are old, have kids and want to spend the mid-year school break with their family. Some of them even want to get out of town! (selfish bastards)
- As it is last minute, I’m having trouble finding support bands, especially considering most of my friends are old etc – see above.
- There are five Saturdays in July.
- The football’s on.
Anyway, we will soldier on regardless. It’s gonna be a hoot. I’m really looking forward to it and I think it’s starting to shape up as a really interesting and diverse month for us, and The Tote. Plus we get paid and free beer to jam in a pub! Check out the listings in the Upcoming Gigs page for more details and for God’s sake, GET OFF YOUR ARSE AND COME AND SEE US AT THE TOTE THIS JULY!
