2000 Gigography of Paul Clarke

Gigography 2000

Getting there with my gig history now, a list of every gig I went to, from 1987 up to about now. It's a natural progression from my Best gigs of all time post. Well that's the theory, but 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, and a box of old concert tickets and things from Mum and Dad's loft. Also got a bundle of gaps regarding festival lineups, 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 ACTION during my NME and Popex years and that. Yeah I know it's very nerdy, let's let that go though, I'm enjoying reminiscing about these things. At least I've not started scanning the tickets in yet Of course I have scanned in the tickets now...
