Optibus


Day 144 – Eirene, originally uploaded by DragonDrop.

Here’s a piccy of Eirene speaking at the Optibus event. What a fantastic night that was. (more pics here) Doors opened at 7, by 8 the place had filled up nicely. Great atmosphere. Early doors Leonie blew me away with her fantastic bag of songs. Then Eirene did some ace poems to music which I didged / tabla played on. They were ace. Mark n Vicky who have called themselves “Dead Man’s Shoes” played a lovely lovely set of really original stuff.
A few more spoken word pieces from various quarters then Dharma got up to play on’t decks. I forgot to accompany him for most of it, as was originally planned… got chatting… oops. All in all though it was a fantastic success. Eirene’s head shaving sponsorship along with the gig (with raffle ticket sales) turned into (unofficial total) about £1,700+. That’s marvelous. Well done everybody.
After the gig, we had an after party at ours which was absolutely grand.
Sunday, we went to Whitby – that was ace. Photos to follow. This weekend ticked all the boxes.
