Friday pre-gig meet up...
 
What's the plan? If there is one...

I don't really know the area that well, I have no idea if there's a decent pub round that place...

I think Dan and his little movie friend probably have the upper hand on local knowledge around Kentish Town. How are you guys coming in? Driving? There's a couple decent looking pubs around the venue The Oxford, Assembly House and Bull and Gate. All look ok enough for a few pre-gig sherries.

We'll drive somewhere, then take a tube from wherever we park. We'll probably park up somewhere in South London though. No idea what time we'll get there... probably aim to leave about 4 or 430ish...

And yes, we should probably wait for Dan to make a call on this.

I just want to throw it out there that it's not fair that JayB has gotten to see The Tedeschi-Trucks Band, The Black Crowes, and the Jayhawks nearly all within a month. This concludes my whiny meltdown. Thank you for reading. Enjoy the shows man! Report back!

If anybody wants to ride in my Johnboat from Virginia to the Thames I am in. Just bring plenty of Guiness or maybe something stronger.

I'm sorry, sometimes life just sucks, doesn't it? :p

Will do... I'll let you know how awesome it was. ;)

PS I saw the Crowes twice in one week... and one of those gigs was the final show of the tour (or ever??) in the majestic Paradiso venue in Amsterdam.

Well, we are available for a meet up from early afternoon on I should think.

JayB 08-02-2011 03:47 AM

Where's Dan when you need him?

What the hell is a "tube"?

What the hell is a "johnboat"?

I do not understand the European language.

Simple. A "tube" is what K-Y Jelly comes in and a "johnboat" is what Europeans use to transport pimps across the English Channel. ;)

What's K-Y Jelly? I sort of like preserves myself. Some locals have some great rasberry stuff this summer. Might have to bring some to St. Cloud if I make that one...

Actually, the Johnboat was first mentioned on this thread by someone who is seemingly from Virginia, US of A (although I think the correct term is a Jon Boat... no?).

The Tube = the London Underground / the subway / the metro...

The lovely Amanda (who used to post here regularly before she went into hiding) suggested the following pub for a meet up:
