Punk Rock: Classic and Modern

The REOFFENDERS are on an indefinite break. Never say never, but we currently have no plans to play. However, we had joy and we had fun... and we blogged about it. Enjoy reading and reliving some good times.

New Venues

We're always on the lookout for new venues, something about not knowing what to expect from the venue or the audience gives that little buzz. And there's always the hope that its going to turn into a favourite haunt.

We've got four new venues coming up. First up is the Village Inn at Exwick. It's a regular in most bands gig lists but for whatever reason, we've never played there despite years of comparing diaries.

Then on Easter Saturday, we're at the Whipton & Pinhoe Labour Club. There is a charge for non-members but I'm assured that the cheap bar will make up for that! Its a side of town that we haven't played at before so hopefully we can make some new friends there. It's a big room so plenty of room for jumping about... Hadrian (chief jumper up and downer) has already said that he's going ;-)

A week later, we're at the Centre Spot at Exeter City FC. There are quite a few people who come to watch us are ECFC fans and I was stunned when I looked on the Exeweb forums by how many of our gigs have been mentioned on there in the last few years! We've had some gentle pestering from those people about playing the Centre Spot and we're delighted to announce our first gig there on Friday 9th April.

In May, we play Ilminster for the first time. I've heard a lot of good things about this place, mainly that it has a huge freezer full of icecream! WTF? And they have a stage with lights, lasers, smoke machine and bubbles. Bubbles you say? I'm there! It will end quite a hairy bank holiday weekend for us in May where we play Newton Abbot on the Thursday, Llandudno on Saturday, Wellington on Sunday and Ilminster on the Monday. I may take the Tuesday off work!

July takes us to Montecute, near Yeovil. It's a cosy venue with potential for a great atmosphere. Should be a goodun.

But I'm wishing the year away already so I'm not going to look beyond the summer just yet.... I could get used to seeing that yellow ball in the sky again, it's been so long!
