Gigography of Paul Clarke for 1998

Gigography 1998

Getting there with my gigography now, all the gigs I was at, from '87 up to about now. A natural progression from my Best gigs of all time post. Well that's the theory, but there's A LOT missing. I have added details from the big bag of old gig tickets that I gathered while I was in London, + a box of old concert tickets + stuff from Mum and Dad's loft. Also got lots of gaps regarding bands seen at festivals, they'll probably stay missing, it's so hard to remember. There's a lot missing where I've lost tickets or never had them, most of the guestlist actions during my NME and Popex years + that. Yeah I know very geeky, let's let that go though, I'm having fun remembering this stuff. At least I've not started scanning the tickets in yet Of course I have scanned the tickets now...

The Beta Band @ Electric Ballroom

Tonight's venue is crammed with indie's brightest + best, all happily expectant according to the review in the Independent, that's me in particular to which they were referring...
