Zanzibar, Liverpool 12th May 2016

This was our first gig as a band in a long time even if our Claire could not make it down unfortunately. It was an absolutely stacked line up of great bands playing in support of our good friends Cascadia Fault Line and as always the Zanzibar treated us well and made us sound great. Some of the puns were that bad that Shane threatened to quit the band onstage. At least I found them funny and that is all that matters. We were not as prepared for this gig as I would have liked to be but we still had fun and most importantly, I did not fall asleep thanks to the caffeine and sugar. 

Jenny Kermode opened the night with just herself and her guitar and sounded excellent dishing out a few covers in her set of mostly her own songs. Very moody stuff and I hope to play with her again. Also on the bill were Indigo Tree who just keep sounding better each time I hear them as well as Dassler Jacks who were another new one for me. I had to leave before the main event of Cascadia Fault Line. Parenting a newborn leaves you extremely tired (Who knew) I thought getting home would allow me a little more sleep but nope, the wee man had other ideas. He decided to sing his wee 1 week old lungs out all night. Rock n Roll!
