Not Folkestone, not even that local, but a fairly easy journey from Folkestone to the O2 Arena, one we're making, I'd hate for you to miss out too. It's The Cure, and they're headlining the NME poll winners party type thing. Officially sold out, but you can still get tickets here at not a bad price at all, standing around the 53 quid mark, seating in all areas cheaper. [ebay=cure tickets]Similar deals on ebay too[/ebay].
Support possibly from White Lies and Crystal Castles, though the rumours do keep changing, there are more to be announced. I'm keeping an eye on this event page on last.fm, though I guess nme.com ought to know what's going on...
This is part of my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a regular visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site used to be a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for best venues and things, and I know it was a handy reference for others who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from the name of a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
