!!! (Chk Chk Chk)

Sunday 25 March, 2007

I went out last night with Rachel, Dave, Dave (Burrito) and Vicky to a gig at the Thekla. For those who don’t know “The THEKLA is a venue, club, bar and kitchen based on board a boat, moored in Bristols historic Mud Dock.”

Here it is. Bask in it’s glory. 🙂

Thekla Social

It used to have this Banksy piece on the side till they refurbished it.

! ! ! is pronounced as any three repetitive sounds. Common interpretations are chkchkchk, powpowpow, uhuhuh: unlimited possibilities.

Are you susceptible to the beast in music? The bit that makes your body move involuntarily, the bit that trances you out?

[…] I’ve previously been to see Isis before so knew what to expect and I’d listened to Blonde Redhead’s latest album so was also prepared for them too.  The Isis gig was pretty chilled as we just sat on a table and watched them rather than trying to get close to the stage.  It was a good gig but not my favorite of the year by quite a long way, so far I think my best gig has been !!!.
