Foxwood Steel at the Chemic

It's the Last Lap, when your all your energy is gone but you pick yourself up from the floor of St Paul's Cathedral, and say Leeds Chemic, We will be there!

Of course we had to move half the audience out of the way just to create space for our eight piece! Yay! We were me [Victoria ], Bex, Vicky, Bart, Gary, Amy, Charlotte and Holly.

We set up as best we could, swinging up most pans on their stands, in the darkness of the carpark and took our place as quickly as we could. Nice to see colleague, Alice there and also Chama [Holly's friend, and my ex-City student] in the audience, and at the bar!

After we play all the songs we don't to need to sight-read, Mike says that there were onstage lights. Oh well. C'est la vie!

In the absence of a spare stand a compere kindly holds up our banner for us. V kind, and, of course, theatrically v effective.

Packing away in the carpark

One drink and home. Need to repack the vans for a workshop on the morrow. For the others, work as normal.
