After a week over in Italy I’m ready for a fix of live music this weekend. Incidentally, if you know of anyone who wants to buy property in Northern Italy the house we stayed in is on the market:

I’m at Trotters Bar tonight where Top Deck All Stars will be showcasing some new material for Keep Colchester Cool. Come and say hello!

There are   not many pay days left now until Colchester! (Colchester Free Festival 2010) – every penny we raise goes towards making the festival something we can all be proud of.
If you got paid this week and can spare any amount to donate towards the festival, please do so and become an official Friend Of The Festival. Thank you in advance!

In the meantime, have a great weekend.
