Making plans

Oh no! It seems I'm coming down with a cold. I've got all the symptoms: the sore throat, the runny nose, the frequent bouts of sneezing -- mark my words: I'll be sick as a dog in a few days. Still, best it should happen now and not when I'll be going to London...Only three more weeks and I'll be meeting up with bogwitch, calove and hesadevil, to partake of a leisurely (and likely liquid) lunch at Belgo's, and afterwards, go to the panto! oh no, I won't! oh yes, I will!

Which reminds me: JM in concert -- am I going to the Carling Academy with Boggy, or St James's with Cass and the Devil in April? Speak up ladies: who wants the pleasure of my company?


29 April - Carling Academy Islington - London * Less than 100 left *
30 April - St James's Church - London * Less than 50 left *

I thought Cass was undecided?

Should I try to sell the Islington ticket and go for the chrurch instead?

They aren't going like hot cakes, are they?

Maybe. I don't know. I only know she has a ticket for Islington, but was thinking of swapping it for one in Central London.

Should I try to sell the Islington ticket and go for the chrurch instead?

Do you think you can?

No, I don't think so. I'm sure we can postpone our final decision for another couple of days at least.

That's what Ebay is made for. ;)

Oops! Looks like they have all gone now -- both for the Islington and the St James's show. So I won't be going with any of you.

Just as well really. CoRo will still be in the UK somewhere that week...

I was thinking about the St James' concert, but probably won't be going as I think the journey would kill me. Well that and the screaming girly-fans!

I'm slightly shocked that there still are tickets going. That boy needs to bleach his hair again!

First off: what a lovely Billy Crudup-icon you have there! ;-)

Unfortunately, it seems the information on jamesmarsterslive.com has not been updated lately: there are no tickets left, to either show.

I saw James with GotR in Amsterdam (and a month later, in Pennsylvania) last year, and had a good time despite the screaming girly-fans and the band's musical ability being less than impressive, so yeah, I do feel a little bit disappointed that I won't be going to see him this time -- but I've only got myself to blame.

Thank you! It's from the publicity for "Stage Beauty". Not saying the Bill-Crudup-love has quite replaced the Spike-love (never happen) but he is rather lovely, isn't he? :)

I kept looking at the tickets but physically I'm not up to it 'cos I'm getting over CFS. If the journey didn't kill me the noise would! Shame though, I'd love to see my idol in the flesh.

Wow! That sounds like fun. You get about a bit, don't you? ;)

He certainly is! Pretty, pretty boy...

You get about a bit, don't you?

It's a small world...but there are still some parts I haven't seen. I met up with calove and julchek at MR04; after having spent the previous 2 years exchanging e-mails (all about Spike, Spike and more Spike) almost daily, we thought it might be fun getting to know one another for real, and to meet JM, too. We had a brilliant time in the States, kept each other sane while coming face to face with our idol(s), and were there for what proved to be GotR's last gig, which was quite entertaining in its own way.

GotR wasn't my cup of tea, but I would have liked to have seen JM in an acoustic set on his own. Maybe he'll put up some more dates soon? Here's hoping! ;-)

OTOH, Common Rotation (Adam Busch's band) are touring the UK in the same week, and they're my favourites.

That's the only reason I'm going (though 'idol' is rather stretching the description), it's certainly not for music, I can assure you.

Come to St James. It's a much nicer venue than the Academy - it has a magnificent organ.

Islington or St James's? The point is moot: there are no tickets left. I've left it too late again...:-(

Oh well, at least there'll be lunch and a chance to see you again! ;-)

Hey! Would be lovely to get to meet you at one of the JM concerts, assuming I get the chance to go. Nothing is 100% sure, but things are looking promising. And I do believe that the church concert is now sold out. Not certain, but by looking at the seating charts, looks like all the seats are taken.

Take care. I hope the cold doesn't get too bad. I hate colds, not that I know anyone who likes them. I hear vitamin C helps... :o)

Unfortunately, it only seems to help if you've taken in a sufficient amount before you get ill...

And you're right: there are no tickets on sale anymore - neither for the concert in St James's, nor for the one in Islington. Bummer!

There's always Ebay! ;)

(though they only have Cavern tickets at the mo for £20)

I think I'm already otherwise engaged that night...
