Blog: Why No Bar Mitzvah's?
I headed back into London's Fashionable West End on Saturday evening to fulfil a Private Booking. Oh yes! For LO! it was the 30th Birthday/5th Wedding Anniversary of Mr Carsmile Steve, and I was there to do my Sellout All The Hits Set, by special request. It was all quite jolly really - the set went down pretty well, although I became Very Conscious that i was playing to several people who frequent music discussion forums, and felt LYRICALLY ANALYSED (although probably people were just thinking "Mmm, beer!"), which was, actually, quite nice, and things went down Pretty Well all round. As usual, "The Lesson Of The Smiths" and "Boom Shake The Room" went down best, which pleased me. ALSO pleasing was, just before I started, someone I'd been chatting to saying "Hang on - are you MJ HIBBETT?!?!?" It was GRATE!
STRANGENESS at the end was suddenly finding myself WREATHED in GIG SWEAT and NOT in a venue, but at a party. It felt odd, but sort of NICE. Oh yes!
By the way, there's EXTREMELY groovy news of something occuring next month, but it's not confirmed yet... I'll let you know, gentle reader, as soon as it is!
