Thanks if you just tried to add the band The Higher State to the database, but you didn't enter venue info, or you did and I didn't recognise it. Done a bit of a search, dirtywaterclub.com1 says the band are there on the 9th of December. This is a good venue, I think I saw The Darkness there, not too local for me these days though. They also add:
After seven years in the wilderness, former member of the Mystreated, Marty Ratcliffe, returns with a new band! These guys give you a totally authentic, retro if you must, sixties garage band sound. These guys and a gal will have you trippin' all the way back to San Francisco's Fillmore Ballroom in late '66. A lovely West Coast, Byrdsy jangle played like you think you're truly listening to a "Back from the Grave" LP!
This is part of my site The FG that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first moved here in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events + voting for favourite venues and things, and I hear it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + 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.
