George Clinton Parliament/Funkadelic touring later this year. Apparently the final tour. Bristol late in May. I'd love to see this, but viewed a relatively recent concert on YouTube earlier... a LOT of rapping, over a fairly formulaic funk band. So I think I'll give it a miss, sadly.

Shortly venturing out on a Sunday evening to see Trials of Cato at The Lexington. They seem to be on the up so looking forward to finding out about them, and who Cato was/is and whether or not he (or she) was found guilty.

Seen them twice now and they are excellent! I know the story behind the name but I won’t spoil it for you. If they don’t tell it tonight I can enlighten you later  Grin

How'd it go?

I'm off to see them next week.

…and very enjoyable they were, too.  During the course of the evening, they came out with a rather telling statistic about airplay fees – bemoaning the fact that Radio 2 pays about £21 per minute, but the Beeb only coughs up a measly 49p per minute for its Welsh-language station.

I'm exceedingly pro-Welsh...I love the place, in many ways it feels like home to me, I love having lived there, and aim aiming to be back there again shortly - but there's a fairly obvious and perfectly understandable reason for the difference, isn't there?

Yes I agree, there obviously has to be a difference, but it was the scale of the difference that they were complaining about.  I vaguely recall there was some strike action on this issue a few years ago.

If I was being really provocative I'd suggest the welsh payment is disproportionately high.

Total population of UK = 66.44 million
Total population of Welsh Speakers = 874,600

The former is 75.9 times the size of the latter.  I'm sure you can do the rest of the maths.

Obviously, this isn't comparing like with like (and probably the listening figures for the relevant radio stations would be a much better source of info for deciding the correct proportion), but personally I find it hard to view the difference as severely unjust.

Local radio play payments are always far less than Radio 1,2,3,4,5,6, etc payments
It also depends on the time of day one's music gets played..

Isn't that opinion rather than fact (fwiw, I'd describe them as 'regional' stations)?  If the option was on the table for Wales to be an independent nation state I'd vote for it, but at this point in time it is not a nation...is it?  Oh, I dunno...it's complex!

I'd hoped the smiley face in my comment above showed I was only yanking chains in fun and not being serious/annoyed.

Apologies to all. I'll get my coat.... or, at least my fez!  Fez

Melissa Etheridge at Rodeo Austin, Travis County Expo Center, March 24!

...IF the rodeo is not cancelled for Covid-19...

They cancelled SXSW a few days ago and flushed $300 million in economic activity with it.

I am advised that Rodeo Austin, by contrast, is not projected to attract many visitors from outside the vicinity. Apparently, this is the metric they are using when deciding what to cancel. I hope they know what they are doing.

Discovered that Trials of Cato ARE playing in Cardiff next week, at the Gate, a venue that's been off my radar for a long time, but is also one of the venues for the forthcoming Roath Folk Music Festival.

All being well I'm seeing them on Friday.

Great band!
