Beach Sessions - 30th Jan 2016

British IBM - Beach Sessions
Thanks to Richard Youell for this photo.

Our first British IBM gig of 2016. Dave and I did a little acoustic set at The Sun Inn, Waterbeach as part of the Beach Sessions, an extremely well run and promoted evening. Really couldn't have asked for a better audience, the room was packed to the point that we couldn't get to the stage through the audience and had to use the fire exit behind the stage area to get on. We were first on followed by the very talented Atomized and Creep Neighbour.

Next gig: We'll be performing another acoustic set at The Architect, Cambridge. Sunday 3rd September 2016.
