And the beat goes on...

Gig last night went down very well indeed...

Got all set up at about 6:30/7pm...went on at 8pm...

Couldn't find my pvc trousers, so wore my black chiffon/taffetta 1950's skirt instead, with my black satin corset...pale white face, green eyeshadow, exaggerated eye makeup with death-curl and dots above one eyebrow... Looked cool!!

(took two photos)

Ruby was late, so we had to do a couple of random blues tracks until she arrived, then we got started...

I could barely hear myself playing at all through the first song, as everyone else had turned the balance up on their instruments... The sound guy put it up a bit for the other songs I was playing on, so I felt a bit better then, but it still went okay... I was happy with my performance:)

Plenty of people told me how good we were when we came offstage...apparently my cello sounded good...just wish I could have heard it a bit more, had to practically lean into the fingerboard to just hear my natural un-amplified tone... No wrong notes though...just had to be a bit more cautious than I'd wanted...

From this gig we have now got the possibility of more gigs elsewhere in Plymouth, support slots as well...next time I'll make sure the thing is louder...perhaps have to invest in my own electric pickup thing (which I don't have atm and had to make do with a microphone angled below the bridge).

Got home at 10:30pm...raging migraine...took two painkillers and went to bed.

I'm off out to theatre in 20 minutes...walking...will take me about 45 minutes to get there...rehearsal calls all day and the show in the evening...will be home sometime around midnight.

10 DAYS TILL PAYDAY!!

Still have no food and no money...will have to go begging for a 'pity parcel' from my mother on Monday I suppose...in the meantime, drinking citrus green tea (I have no milk) and nothing to eat...forced slimming!!

(I shall live on Music alone!)

Ho hum:/
