PaulyGigography1996 ≫ Placebo

Mean Fiddler 157 Charing Cross Road, London WC2 0EN

Hmm I originally had "I went in late on a whim, missed the support, who might have been Deus" here but if you look, Placebo and Deus played this same venue in 1997, and I even have the ticket for that one. Was it rescheduled maybe? Was I even at anything this night? This gigography is full of holes!

I know I went to see Placebo on the day of my grandmother's funeral, Dad's mum. I went after, not instead, I'm not a monster. That was at Brixton Academy I thought, maybe that was the one in 1997 then? But why does the 1997 ticket say that? has it they played Brixton in May 1997 and there's a full bootleg of the gig here1.

I attended this one, more from this year in my gigography for 1996. Part of every gig I went to from '87 to 2024. It's an obvious step from my Best Gigs Ever blog post. Yeah I know it's a bit nerdy, let's let that go though, I'm enjoying remembering these things.
