Sunday 9th September - Back to pub gigs

This year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe was a full-on yet fulfilling experience. I thought it would be a good thing that I had lots of gigs lined up for straight after the Fringe but it’s not quite gone the way I expected.

It's been a mixture of gigs I've organised and performed in. 2 were in the Outwith Festival in Dunfermline, one my own solo show where the technical set up didn't work properly but my set seemed to go down well enough, and the other where one of the acts simply didn't show up or message as to why he was absent, leading to knock-on effects on the whole night.

Two other local gigs were battles against the limitations of the events, either because of inadequate PA in a noisy room or because of the whole way a room was set up - and in front of a tiny audience.

It's been a reminder of what the hard graft of gigging can be like, but at least they have all been local gigs so there hasn't been lots of travelling to add on to each of the nights.
