A big hi to Jaap, Thisj, Bow and Frank, for being lovely company. Though I can't blame them for gradually being lured backstage away from the terrifying reality of Boogie Nights at the Junction on a Friday night. I'm glad I've seen it once, but I won't be in a hurry to do it again. The bands at the Portland were mostly pretty good though, and all in all a fairly good night out. We didn't get our gig in the park: too short notice to find a guitar or two it seems.
