Paul Skerritt Band @ Fenwicks, Newcastle

How do you do a review of a gig without any seating? After great difficulty getting into the building I eventually found the band in the lighting department - not in any of the cafés as advertised. It was a passing audience! For a while I sat on one of the sofas in the adjoining  furniture department but got some bad looks from one of the assistants and moved on. 
As usual the band sounded great - but how many of the punters where there for the music? It all became overcrowded by shoppers - there for what was a money off promotion evening. Just a shame the band were not on the stores music system and we could have heard more from them. As the picture shows it was a truly enlightening experience.
