PaulyGigography ≫ Astoria @ Astoria

Astoria 157 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0EN

Farewell old friend... Sure I've seen a lot more gigs than this there, but I can't find the tickets...

I attended this one, more from this year in my gigography. Part of every gig I was at from 1987 to 2024. It's a natural step from my Best Gigs Ever weblog post. Yeah I know very geeky, let's let that go though, I'm having fun reminiscing about this stuff.
