Ok, so we've just got back from a Tun, which provided the bread around the sandwich of going to see A Show of Hands at the Purcell Room. "Who?" said everyone in the Tun. Well, they play English Acoustic music; mostly with pickups, but for one song with no amplification whatsoever. I know the Purcell Room (Baby RFH, as opposed to Daddy RFH & Mummy RFH) is pretty small, but it was still brilliant. They're great, and they have half a dozen songs online. They're one of these bands that's greatly in favour of home taping/ downloading, etc.

Meanwhile. We'll be going to see Steeleye Span sing all their greatest hits, and 20 or so other songs, on Thursday 19th December -- I assume this is the same day as the Christmas Tun. Anyone interested needs to let me know *by Sunday* -- it's at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and will be no more than £14 each plus possible booking fee. All the front stalls have already gone -- sorry. But the QEH isn't that big a hall, and it's a relatively large band.

We'll also be going to one of several gigs by Philip Glass at the Barbican. We just haven't decided whether we want quite good seats for a set of "new short films by acclaimed directors" or for Powaqqatsi, or much less good seats for Koyaanisqatsi. If anyone is interested in joining us, feel free to argue which gig we should go to see. If it weren't for parenthood, I think we'd be planning on more than one of this set. Anyway, let us know in the next couple of days.
