I was thinking a late-afternoon gearfest that naturally evolves into fried food and beer.
good luck with getting him out of the pub.... and usually they start with beer.
Which evolves into an Em blues jam which, after 120 bars, regresses back into more beer.
Can we make that Am? I don't know the weird notes.

I prefer Pm. No notes at all
When faced with quality, I recognise it every time.

Well, COVID wrecked this a couple of times already.

How are y'all placed for the weekend of 13th/14th August? Or maybe schedule something for September. I have exams in November then another baby due in early December, so keen to do sooner rather than later!

Will update a poll if any dates are put forward.

I'm definitely keen, free on the 13/14th.
The older I get, the more disappointed in myself I become.

Positive feedback for the 13th/14th so far. That is one of the few weekends that the Onepoto Hall is booked out. Any alternative venue suggestions? Or should we look at the following weekend?

Or we could get two practice rooms at Debase for $140 for 3 hours... Might be nice to have a separate acoustic room?

13th/14th is good for me, and debase is probably a good option.
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

$10 a head, if we get 10 people I won't be too much out of pocket.

Onepoto is the only one which is likely to tolerate any amount of noise.

Asparagus rolls welcome whereever, Ants.
