Anarchic

Hear ye, hear ye, all those who read this blog and reside in "the posh bit" of Kentish Town!

You have approximately three hours to don your best punk t-shirt and anarcho jeans ensemble and get to The Bull & Gate to witness The Gig That Anarchic Hand Tried Not To Promote.

The electro-punk rock chick, some or fewer British Net Celebrities, and I will be in the bar from 9pm. As will a lot of other people, probably. I'm the diminutive blonde one with scruffy hair.

Yeah. Like *that's* going to work...

Never underestimate the awesome power of the blog.

patroclus said...

Yup, fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic keyboard...

Smat said...

so how many turned up? And did they all have badges saying "I blog with Patroclus"?

patroclus said...

Well, the subset of "people who read this blog and live in 'the posh bit' of Kentish Town" amounts to - as far as I'm aware, anyway - two people, of whom one turned up. Which was very pleasing, even if there weren't any badges in evidence. And a top evening was had by all, I think. Super.

Smat said...

I think you need badges, definately

Urban Chick said...

dammit

only just seen this

'cause i almost qualified: i read your blog and i used to live in tufnell park...

*sniffs*

patroclus said...

You'd have been very welcome, of course, UC. But I thought it was just a teeny bit short notice for all but the most local.

posh bit of Kentish Town? Really?

patroclus said...

Well, they tend to call it Dartmouth Park. But then, they *would*.

Urban Chick said...

ah, dartmouth park

that's the bit that's sinking into the ground with subsidence, yes?

shame - nice houses

*feels smug about move to swampy sarf london that can't sink any more UNTIL THE FLOODS COME*

If we're sinking into the ground in Dartmouth Park, it's only under the weight of our own self-satisfaction.

(As it happens, and this one is for lost-river fans and Gillian Tindall groupies, so I suspect I've got an audience of one, it's only Highgate and Fortess Roads that are subsiding...not, as you would expect, because the residents of Highgate are bracing shoulders and pushing them back towards Camden, but because they should be parts of the River Fleet.

Sorry couldn't make 100% turn-out last night. Had an accident with the badge. Tetanus shot. Nothing serious.

>>lost-river fans and Gillian Tindall groupies<<

Ahhh, those were the days. How I miss Kentish Town. Although I would like to clarify that at no point did I live in "the posh bit".

I thought it was a bit of a long shot, chuffy! Next time, eh? We did wonder if you might be there and we just couldn't recognise you, but DG seemed to think that you would be wearing the same outfit as your namesake, and thus wouldn't be too hard to spot. I pointed out that as far as I was aware you only wear the finest linen. But maybe that's just in the summer months.

Good gig though.

As always, I have been too far away. Sigh. But you should in any case listen to the new record of the Arctic Monkeys (see my blog). Un besito de Konrado
