As soon as this had been announced months ago I had bought my ticket fearing a sell-out gig, which it wasn`t far from. The 18th of September has been a bad day for me as it is the anniversary of my mother`s death, however on refection I am sure she would have not minded me going out and partying.
So I arrived at the club
in good time and was greeted by Howard (The Promotor) outside, once in Viv,
Clare and Ade were on door duties. Having been duly stamped I went upstairs and
before calling at the bar I first went to the Merchandize table and got the new CD by
The Last Cry from Bridget. Next I had a quick chat with Martin, and then I got
a drink which had gone up 40 pence a pint in the last 2 weeks!
It was always going to be
one of those nights were everyone who`s anyone in the scene would be there
and it was! I`m not going to try and list all my friends who were there, but
just to say it`s always good to see people who I only see once or twice a year.
The Last Cry Headlined and
opened with Goodbye, and played most of their new album with classics from
Living In Grey mixed in. A great set from one of my favourite bands.
Despite the fact it was Sunday
and I had work at 8 O` clock in the morning I waited for it to be Martin`s turn
to DJ and managed just a couple of dances before `doing` the goodbyes and
heading home. This night will be remembered for a long time.

Strap On Halo
Strap On Halo opened, the only band I hadn`t seen before, but soon found I liked them.
The Last Dance had the middle spot, Jeff Diehm making a point of telling us this. I like their music, I also like the way Jeff talks to us in-between the songs, something not many Goth bands do. As always they saved the best for last “Do You Believe In Angels” we did.
