⬆️Updated Folkestone gig history

My mum used to go out with Noel Redding way back in the 60's so I can confirm that Hendrix played in Folkestone, but not in Tofts as everybody guesses she says vaguely that it was a social club on Grace Hill, but I quote "Don't ask me the name it was the bloody sixties".

Personally I was at the "Dead or Alive" Leas gig where "slam dancing" offically started according to the press (well it got into the Sun so it must be true).

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site used to be updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for best venues + things, and I know it was a handy reference for those who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from the name of a fake newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
