Turns out the giant TV in my room won’t respond to any input for some unknown reason, so I guess I’ll inform reception. I wasn’t planning to watch any TV or anything, it’s just strange, and I guess they’d want to know, if they don’t already.
So, I am just about to leave to go to the site, the Custard Factory obviously, where I am to be given my wristband and staff shirt, which I need to wear on the outside of my clothing, and then i shall be assigned duties. I am still assuming it’s going to be box office, so with that in mind, I am going to pop into a clothes shop on the way (the Bullring is open late…) and get me some fingerless gloves, so I can operate a) the e-ticket PDA b) my phone c) my wallet, without needing to remove said gloves. It is after all a bitterly cold October night.
This evening there is just one act I am really desperate to see, and that’s Secret Cheifs 3. Interestingly, the line-up for this tour includes Danny Heifetz, of the original Secret Chiefs Trio and Mr. Bungle. Also, interestingly, they are a band I have loved for about 6 years, but have never yet had the opportunity to see perform. I will also try and grab some merch if I have time, particularly if they’ve got their cool-ass hoodies, and the new 7″.
If I have the time I will check out some other stuff, but there’s no strict plan – unlike tomorrow.
Anyway, gates open at 9PM, so I should probably get to going.
