The Mighty Boosh festival lineup is out, as seen on posters at Folkestone station, though I'm sure I could have been quicker off the mark than that. It's a bit ropey actually. The 'Boosh themselves headline I think, with The Charlatans, Gary Numan, White Denim, The Kills, Peaches (DJing only), and Polar Bear. I've no idea of the format actually, so i'm not sure what part Noel Fielding, Julian Barrett et all will play.
There is a full comedy lineup too featuring Ross Noble, Frankie Boyle, Flight Of The Conchords, Robin Ince, Garth Merengi and lots more. Not much that really leaps out, I expect to see Stewart Lee on every single comedy festival lineup, and I expect him to be doing the same set every time too damn it!
Get tickets here, 50 a piece. It'a at the Hop Farm, near Paddock Wood, looks to be about half a mile away from the station so maybe we could do it from Folkestone... think they're gearing it more at people nipping out of London rather than us, but there must be some people that Paddock Wood is handy for.
This is my website The FG 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 before 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 hear it was a useful reference for those who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
