Ginger

09-05-2016 – Ginger Amy

Aloha!

Well, guess what, another weekend, another couple of gigs…

After last weekend’s little surprise, we were hoping that nobody was going to take their top off during a gig.

Well, they didn’t…

Friday at the Tern in Yate was worthy of mention though, it was enlivened by a bunch who were in celebrating somebody’s birthday, and they all managed to get themselves into a rather advanced state of disrepair. Thus it was that we got some fairly lively audience interaction going on; in particular, one rather hirsute young gentleman, who was so keen to join in that when Rosa introduced an Amy Winehouse number by asking if there was anybody named Amy in the room, he raised his hand enthusiastically and shouted “Me! Me!”… Similarly, when Rosa commented on the warm weather, asking if anybody had had to resort to sunblock yet, he also piped up, “Yes, I did! I had to, I’m as ginger as f*&k!”.

Without missing a beat, Rosa announces to the pub, “There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, I give you… Ginger Amy!”. And thus he is christened for the rest of the evening.

The night continues with much dancing around and general tomfoolery, and ends inexplicably with Ginger Amy, after some very enthusiastic stage diving, minus his trousers…

Saturday at the Huntsman was a rather more restrained affair, and probably just as well – still, the staff were lovely and they had an impressive array of cakes, which unfortunately, we spotted too late to take advantage of them. Disappointed, Ben had to console himself by spending five minutes exchanging kazoo duck calls with one of the punters. It’s amazing how long five minutes can seem…

Next time, we’ll know where the cakes are; and I will secrete Ben’s kazoo somewhere he can’t see it…

Meanwhile, coming up

Friday 13th – Tap & Barrel, Swindon
Last time we were here, there were three fights during the course of the second set. This time, it’s Friday 13th. What could possibly go wrong?

Saturday 14th – Yew Tree, Warminster
A new one for us, never played here before – but the other gigs we’ve played in Warminster have always been worth the trip, so we have fairly high hopes for this one. Hopefully, they’ll all keep their trousers on…

That’ll do for now, then…
