We have played a couple of gigs in Brixton on the last two Sunday evenings.
First we played Upstairs at the Ritzy – always a favourite for us as the sound there is so good. It’s a lovely small venue. And as we were the only band we got to play two full sets.
We had a blast and we think the audience did too. The set list we played is below.
Here’s Annie at the Ritzy.
And last night we got to play a very different gig just down the road at the Hootananny – somewhere we haven’t played for a few years. If the Ritzy is small and intimate, the Hootananny is the opposite – big and loud. We played one long set starting at a quarter past midnight to a big and appreciative crowd, who sang along with many of the songs. It was a long evening given that we had soundchecked at just after six, but worth it as we got a great reception.
Thanks to Cecil Reuben, who has been promoting reggae at the Hootananny for years, for putting us on again.
And it was good to see a poster from when we supported Neville Staple – nearly ten years ago – still on the band room wall.
And here’s Frank onstage:
