Tickets bought, time booked off, overdraft extended....

Who else will be coming along for the ride?

And where is the nearest pub for a London meet?

Went to the Astoria box office in person today ~ highly recommended as there's no booking fee if you pay cash ~ £20 per ticket!

Pubwise, there's always the good old Royal George:

or the The Montagu Pyke (used to be THE Marquee, sadly missed):
http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/ ... Cross_Road

but more fittingly for a g*th band like the Sisters :von:, there's my cheesey fave (10-15mins walk down Oxford Street):

Here's to May 2nd ~ Yay!!!

ps: thanx to all for bidding on my ebay auction (in buy/sell forums) :notworthy:

Anyone who needs to order tickets for Astoria but can't get to the box office, you can save money by getting them from StarGreen rather than Seetickets. Less booking fee and p&p:

I would recommend De Heim for the beers but the atmosphere can be a bit suitish at times..

Mind you, they do serve croquettes...



So who else is all attending of HL then?

I'll be there but I'll be in the que... to young for pubs, to old to take a day off school...

I'm also thinking about recording the gig... if I get caught, what happens to my recorder? (it'll be my first recording)

Damn right, either that or we can make our jollies in Soho..



Anyways, we should get a roll call for the Heartlanders attending said gig.. I may well take the day off to act as guide if need be.. (and chemist *cough* *cough* )

Didn't see any yesterday and the concert wasn't even listed on their list of forthcoming concerts..

Despite that, they still sold tickets!
