Great gig at the Good Intent, John Street, Rochester, yesterday lunchtime, Sunday 1st June. A wonderful welcome from Karen and the guvnor, and two long sets from Andy Smythe, singer songwriter on vocal, guitar and piano, accompanied by Barry Targett on violin and guitar.
This is part of my website The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved here in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and stuff, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
