Well, the day came and despite very poor weather and a wind that would strip the paint from a Vauxhall, at the Brownhills Music Festival the music was great, the beer was fine and everyone seemed to have a good time. There were some technical issues, and I think scheduling was a little too tight, as some acts didn’t get to play which was sad, but Paul Green put in a huge amount of work and the first Music Festival for decades was, I think, a success.
I only got up for an hour or so, but I did enjoy the rice and fish, and was disappointed to miss the curry goat. Ale, music and good friends, what more can you ask?
Best wishes and thank to Paul, and best of luck in his next venture.
Great music Fesival, well done to all involved.
Well done to Paul and others involved. Saw some great local acts, with my favourites being ‘The Grade’. Wasn’t too impressed with the inside toilets – ladies, if you really must hover, please try to improve your aim!
I was very impressed with the professsionalism and slick setup: food and beer were good and well priced too. I really liked the first band on, “Skirred”, but a lot of people may have missed them as it was still quite quiet then.
Well done to Paul and the team.
Glad you enjoyed our set. We’re playing at the Greyhound Inn, Colton on Sunday 25th August if you want to see us again 😉
PS – it’s The Skirr 😉
Glad you liked our set. It’s The Skirr though for future reference 😉
We’re playing at the Greyhound in Colton on Sunday afternoon if you’re about. Spacement Apes and Faceless We Brave are joining us too. It’s going to be a ‘hoot’!
Oops. Sorry. Knew I shouldn’t have relied on my memory after several pints 🙂
Any plans to come back south of the border?
Haha! No worries! Sorry for the double post – forgot I’d already got a wordpress account…
Which border are you referring to? We’re happy to play where-ever within reason 😉
Our confirmed gigs coming up are:
Sunday 25th August – Greyhound Inn, Colton (with Spacement Apes and Faceless We Brave)
Wednesday 11th September – Talk Bar, Birmingham
Friday 4th October – Secret Venue in the Midlands (Single launch party)
Saturday 23rd November – Newhampton Arts Centre, Wolverhampton (with The Grade, Other Dogs, and Getaway Club)
I was talking about the Staffs border- can see you do come that way. Anything in Walsall/Walsall Wood/Aldridge?
Nothing planned just yet mate but watch this space! Trying to get a gig with Spacement Apes who are from that way. Keep an eye on our website or facebook page 🙂 http://www.facebook.com/theskirr
