The Dawn Chorus / The Retrospective Soundtrack Players - Blogging all over the World

My name is Kyle. I am a happily failing indie/punk/folk/country/rock musician from Hampshire, UK. I have been singing and songwriting in The Dawn Chorus since 2005, and The Retrospective Soundtrack Players since 2010. I love these two bands like my brother/wife rolled into one. This blog details the shows I have played with both bands, in chronological order.

CII - Boscombe Community Fayre - 05/09/08

Friday 5th September 2008
Boscombe Community Fayre

A washout, quite literally. I really felt for the organisers, they were well and truly shafted by the weather. It had been relentlessly pissing it down all day and most of the day before, we even phoned the organiser to make sure it was still on. The set up was pretty good, 4 or 5 Marquees hosting either musicor poetry, dance, food, beer etc, but the weather not only made the site grim to walk around in, but also seemed to keep the punters away.

We were due to play at 8pm but Neil noticed at about 7pm that there were no lights in the main stage where we were playing. I was quite excited at the prospect of playing completely in the dark, but unfortunately some disco lights were rustled up from somewhere or other. We played ok but I never really got into it. The crowd seemed to consist of some schoolgirls doing the hokey cokey, a couple of pissed up women making lewd comments at Neil and Paul, and a few other brave souls who came out despite the weather. We're very grateful that they did.
