Anyone fancy coming to Hawkwind's Solstice Ritual
show at the Astoria tonight? This should be a pretty good shindig, with not just uncle Dave Brock's psychedelic warlords themselves promised, but dancers and swirly lights and all sorts of acid-tinged goodness.
Frequently they seem to get chums in to do special guest slots for these solstice bashes too, so who knows, you might even get to see Dumpy Dunn1
or Arthur Brown too! Hooray! The cups of any lucky attendees will, I'm sure you'll agree, runneth over!
Tickets are £20, but zoo_music_girl
isn't coming and won't use hers, so if you ask very nicely, we might be able to give it to you for a bit less...Update
: Talking of Hawkwind, I gather that Bob Calvert's ex-bassist, a gentleman by the name of Michael Moorcock
, is going to be doing some manner of show next month in town. I rather fancy going along and seeing if he'll sign my copy of Hype
and maybe about two others amongst you have even the slightest notion who Dumpy Dunn is, uncouth illiterates that you are... All those that consider themselves musically knowledgeable, name three DRN songs, if you can! Betcha can't. ;-p
