What was that all about then? There was no quiz at Chambers in December, as they're saving it up for Christmas Day... I guess this means no quiz in January either, when on earth are we meant to defend our title?
Advertising of events has been a bit on the slow side, there's no sign of posters regarding New Years Eve yet, but we hear it will be an indie disco, five pounds a ticket...
Ads up in Chambers on the chalk boards saying "for listings see thegigguide.info"... seems to be a new effort, not a lot of info on it so far, no mention of Chambers being shut on the 10th of December (it is, private party I guess) or of what's going on New Years Eve... don't see the point in setting up another site for this sort of stuff (though I did it myself), though it could be a school project. Looks to be all local band type stuff and Mr Gig does this very well... I hope folkestonegerald.com won't get shunted down the search engine listings by this, unlikely, though by me linking to them I'm helping them out!
This is my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places and stuff, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) 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 about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
