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.
