The Bowie Gig

MADLLIPS have been playing the Beaumaris RSL one Friday a month for the last couple of years. It's a fun gig but not the usual rock n roll gig for a guitar rock band.

We have a number of familiar faces that come to see us play there and we are grateful for the support.

We play from 7:30pm to 11:30pm and play 4 x 35 minute sets with the first one an acoustic set.
Pat our intrepid lead singer has been penning a few originals which we slip in every now and then to appreciative audiences.

Of course we have a couple of fans who nearly always want us to play "Living next door to Alice"... Alice, Alice.. who the f*%k is Alice!!  We usually accomodate them.. after all, that's what we get paid for!

So the moral of this story is, a gig is a gig is a gig. You have to perform is if you will never play again. You never know who is in the audience, even if there was only one person there... it could be someone who matters.. even if it isn't... it actually really is!  Get it!
