A definite day of two halves. The rain was hammering down when Tight Tens kicked off and the audience of four were outnumbered by the acts. The sets were solid though and those in attendance experienced exactly what it was like to be at a weeknight new act show in any UK city outside of the fringe. The bucket was exceptional for the numbers and I even finally used the card reader.
99 (First World) Problems, on the other hand, benefitted from sunny weather and word of mouth and accommodated a decent crowd. The second mic cable turned out to be broken today so we were back down to one mic with our own lead but shared well for the most part. The assembled could have been louder but the bucket was decent and the compliments were forthcoming.
Given the #99FWP theme of our show it does seem somewhat ironic to not have received a single tweet yet.
