2001 Gigography of Paul Clarke

PaulyGigography ≫ 2001

Getting there with my gigography now, the list of every gig I remember going to, from 1987 up to about now. It's a natural step from my Best Gigs Ever post. Well that's the theory, so there's A LOT missing. I have chucked in details from the big bag of old gig tickets that I gathered while I was in London, + a box of old concert tickets and things from Mum and Dad's loft. Also got lots of gaps regarding festival lineups, they'll prob'ly stay missing, it's so hard to remember. There's a stack missing where I've lost tickets or never had them, most of the guestlist actions during my NME and Popex years and that. Yeah I know it's a bit geeky, let's let that go though, I'm having fun remembering these things. At least I've not started scanning the tickets in yet Of course I have scanned the tickets now[^But I've lost the bag of tickets before I scanned them all in!]...

1987 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024
