You might have seen their "Ready Steady Kook" poster up in Chambers recently, or heard them in the hit parade, well The Kooks are coming to visit. It's all part of a "seaside tour", taking in coastal towns of the UK.
Date and more info as it comes in, I assume it'll be the Leas Cliff Hall. It's an odd one, looks like they've already sold out two nights at the Astoria...
UPDATE: Dates of the seaside tour are:
18 Aug: Hastings, Pier Ballroom 19 Aug: Folkestone, Leas Cliff Hall 21 Aug: Skegness, The Farm 22 Aug: Torquay, Riviera Centre 23 Aug: Blackpool, Spanish Hall
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of enthusiasm 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 resource for others who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a fake newspaper 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 GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
