Something similar happened at Cardiff. The tw@t in front of us obscured our view with his mobile phone for most of the set, then proceeded to play his videos back at full volume when the band were bantering between songs  Angry mainly to cries of WTF from those around him. And when the Security man asked him to turn it off he had a mouthful of abuse. I really don't understand some people  Undecided

I just don't get it, it makes me feel like I am getting old. I really can't understand why you would rather capture that special moment in a concert rather than being part of it, e.g. Filming meet on the ledge at cropredy, filming Vincent black lightning at a Richard Thompson concert, smoke on the water, paranoid. I would rather be there.

To be fair, the person wasnít even recording the gig. Genuinely, and even more inexplicably, he made a phone call.  Shocked

Show of Hands at the Cutty Sark.  The performance space underneath the ship (boat?) makes a really nice venue.  I saw ĎThe Pirates of Penzanceí there a few weeks ago Ė I liked the idea of seeing it in a nautical setting Ė and it works just as well with theatre.

Trying to decide whether I can be fussed to drag myself over to Brighton to see The Dovetail trio this evening. Would like to see them but brighton on a Bank Holiday has all sorts of disadvantages, not least of transport o get there and back.

Otherwise my next gig (sort of) will be Tubular Bells for Two on Friday. More of a show than a gig I think and I have no real idea what to expect but it has been highly acclaimed by critics and I am looking forward to it.

Then it is Otway & Barrett's farewell tour on Saturday which should be a lot of fun.
