As I write this I’m not really what I’m going to say or where this entry is going. This is a result, I think, of my Night Shift ‘hangover’. This is a curious effect as it feels much like a proper hangover, but without the causes of a normal one. Last night was late, but not that late, I drank a little but not too much. No, I think the Night Shift hangover is the result of an evening that is slightly stressful, uncertain, mixed in with a little drink and a late night, followed by an interrupted sleep full of various Night Shift related dreams.

Anyway. Last night’s event all seemed to go very well. To be honest we were a little worried that a return to our regular style of event and venue might have seemed a little anti-climactic after the Roundhouse Night Shift, but I don’t think we had need to worry. I realised that as I sat down that one of the great things about the Queen Elizabeth Hall is its intimacy, which is a great bonus. Plus we had a special guest in the audience – Goldie, it was great to see him there, I hope he comes back for more!

As ever there were a few things that weren’t quite right, that we can improve on, but that’s the case with every concert, so hopefully they get better each time! Feedback so far has been good, with some nice tweets, but more is always welcomed, positive or negative (the same goes for all our concerts, we really DO like hearing from the audience!).

If you were there you will have heard that we are hoping to announce a summer event, details will be available in all the usual places. It’s likely to be at a new venue – which got me wondering – are there any venues where you’d love to see The Night Shift take place?

I shall stop rambling now. Far more interesting gaffer tape pic to follow…
