Phew! Last week was quite a week, all in all
And I am still recovering from it now truth be told.
Monday, first of all – I popped over to see my friend,
Rick for a quick beer for his birthday and even had
Time to pop in to see another friend on the way home
Literally who had some thoughts for a rewrite on a
Old poem of mine (which I need to sit down and have
A look at).
Tuesday – It was A Means to an End rehearsals
And we did another trial run at Chorlton’s brilliant
Iguana Bar and had a great time there – got my
Band another gig in June or July when our schedule
Lightens up at Asoustic Wednesdays in
, but Manchester
More details on that to follow. Also took some pictures
On the night and perhaps got a few people to come
Along and watch us on Monday 23rd May 2011 (tonight)
Play Chorlton Arts Festival in a full length set.
Wednesdays – Was out Hospital visiting for a sick friend,
But when I got back to Cathy’s sat down and started scribbling
On a new poem which needs a lot more work about football
Thursday – Ended up going over to Freed Up Poets @ The Green Room
for it’s last poetry open mike there. Co-hosted again Manchester
By original co-announcer Steve O’Connor, the night was a lot better
Than it has been in recent months if I am honest as a lot of people came
Back who started going a while back and it was nice to see some of
These faces again. I, myself was placed on second which was a bit
Earlier than I would have prepared if I was honest and there was
No warning of a running order (unlike previous months) which
Made it harder, but I delivered my newest poem ‘Ghosts of Manchester
With what I wrote..
Friday was a total break after that, and on Saturday me and Cathy
Went to see Hanna, a new film at the cinema which was really good
With a pounding soundtrack by the Chemical Brothers which I need
To check is commercially available (I hope so). Sunday, I left early and
Went to Chorlton to perform a short set at Chorlton FM which is linked
To Chorlton Arts Festival which was great fun before then heading over
To watch Jude Cowan, a friend from
London do the launch Manchester
Of her debut poetry book which was interesting (More on that later when
I review the book).
But tonight, it’s Chorlton Arts Festival.
