Think the year was originally wrong on this one... this link from gigguide.uk.com has it as 2000, sounds about right to me. The Darkness were also playing this night at the Monarch / Barfly, but I was at this.
I was at this one, more from this year in my gigography for 2000. Part of every gig I was at from 1987 to 2023. A natural step from my Best Gigs Ever weblog post. Yeah I know very nerdy, let's let that go though, I'm having fun reminiscing about these things.
