Mrs barky like ALL kinds of music,comes along and enjoys most of the gigs I get tickets for,but her ONE major love is a singer called natalie merchant. She is now solo but used to front a band called 10,000 maniacs. In all the years we have gone to gigs,there has just never been the opportunity to see her-she plays live extremely rarely and mrs barky is resigned to never seeing her live.
What she doesnt know yet is that natalie is playing edinburgh usher hall wednesday night,and she thinks she is attending chitty chitty bang bang at the playhouse when we go through for the night.
Hasnt been easy ripping the gig guide out of the sunday papers for the last 6 weeks so she doesnt read it.
hopefully this is worth enough brownie points to watch the entire world cup undisturbed!
