Do you remember when they were my favourite ever thing, ever? They were like the [Nick Helm](/wiki/#nick/helm) of their day. Anyway, excited, I hope we can go.
Just Announced! East-Anglian rock-based-pop-music-band The Darkness are arriving at Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone, this December. Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of their legendary number one debut album Permission To Land - which featured the classics, Get Your Hands Off My Woman and I Believe In a Thing Called Love and garnered the band 3 Brit Awards - The Darkness will play the record in full alongside their hits from the subsequent two top ten albums One Way Ticket To Hell And Back and last years Hot Cakes.
UPDATE: we have tickets, see you there m/
They're also playing Portsmouth Pyramids on the Friday night, and in Brigh
This is my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a regular visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site used to be a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for best venues and things, and I know it was a handy reference for others who were thinking of 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 Folkestone itself is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of Brasseye 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 contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
