I took a last-minute trip over to Southsea to support local band, Penny's Dropped. I'm hoping that my band will eventually get to play there, but it's going to be difficult to break into the mainland scene without the necessary contacts. The Wedgewood Rooms is a great venue and once again all of the bands from last night had a good sound. Penny's did well with the 25 minutes they had, but being first on they were playing to a cold audience.
I was impressed at the turnout actually. For a Thursday night the gig was well-attended and the crowd would certainly be bigger than any than I've previously played to. We're hoping to get there this year.
