Big Jugs On Full Display

17 September, 2010 | Tubesnake Gigs

Friday 17th September 2010 at The Big Jug, Claypath, Durham City. Class night at a venue Tubesnake ain’t played for over ten years. In that dark and distant past the band line-up and the venue itself looked a tad different. Packed pub for the first half and a good sized audience was retained for the second, even though some of the original punters moved on to sample the delights of the bars around The Gala Theatre during the middle break. Some fresh bods ventured in for the second set and the floor space freed-up after the initial crush meant that those dancing girls (and blokes) could let loose and start kicking out in a sweaty swaithe of self-expression. Have to say thanks to the street performer guy who came up to the mic in the middle of the first set wanting to join in with his accordian. After discussing what he had in his repertoire we, and the audience, provided him with the vocals for his short rendition of ‘When The Saints Go Marching In’, following which, he placed a 50p piece on the floor in front of us and left. You couldn’t write the script. Excellent night! … Lenny
