This afternoon I couldn’t get tickets to see Mitch Benn playing while in Manchester. This was the third time he would have come to Manchester and I would have missed him. I, well, tweeted about my sulkiness about it.
Mitch tweeted back to Kian re:our lack of tickets offering to do a gig in our living room before his gig this evening. So, it was on. We started phoning around and tweeting about a gig at our house. Eventually it was confirmed at being put on at King’s Arms in Salford at 8pm.
Grabbed a little brother and friends. Got some dinner and headed on a Salford direction.
Once we arrived we had a chin wag with Mitch. Many, many friends arrived and got a few drinks, then the silliness and fun began.
At the end of the night I got a hug from Mitch and assurances that next time he’d play in my living room.
