No Andrew for this one, but our first trip to Stockton for #agigamonth.
Why we went: one of the guys from The Sherlocks started following me on twitter for some reason, so I thought I’d give them a listen. They sounded decent in the vein of Arctic Monkeys, so we thought we’d give it a go.
Were they good: yep – really good, considering we only knew 4 songs. The crowd were well up for it and the #sherlocksarmy seemed to know all the lyrics to all of the songs. There was the extra bonus of a man in the crowd who would give the Mountain from Game of Thrones a run for his money.
Food: worst food in the history of a gig a month. Andrew had the fortune of missing this. Carpaccios – really struggled to find somewhere decent to eat, so took a chance on this place. I had terrible sticky chicken wings followed by a passable parmo. Ste has terrible potato skins followed by an unpleasant “grattan”.
Ste (next day): My mouth tastes like a swamp and I can only hear on one side.

Support acts: Towzer (not great) & The Citadels (terrible…walked out and had a drink in the other room)
The Sherlocks in full Sherlockian rock.
