(In case any concerts have changed dates/ changed venues/ been cancelled or I've made a typo, you'd be wise to check out the venue websites before heading out the door because well it makes sense right?)

Not the most lively of weeks musically speaking but plenty on that list to see and it always makes me smile inside when one of them has played in my living room. Incidentally, I do hope to be able to host some more Living Room shows this Summer, just need to find a new flat first. Also have you noticed how the sun is setting that little bit later every evening? Great isn't it. British Summer Time (BST) begins in just under 3 weeks meaning those long and hopefully hot summer days are edging that bit closer. Did you know the purpose of the one hour shift is to make maximum use of daylight hours, principally to maximise commercial efficiency? The idea was first introduced (and made law in 1916) to save on fuel costs by increasing the working hours available in daylight. I wonder what difference this will make in the current economic climate. I digress.

It's a busy week for me as I try to start my Spring cleaning and get rid of loads of junk from the flat. I find it easier if I approach this boring task by setting myself goals. The idea is I am to be rid of all the junk I've sorted out so far (and there's a fair bit) by Sunday 15th which gives me a week. I'm going to try to raise as much money as possible and keep my environmentally friendly hat on, so I'll be using Ebay, Freecycle and if all else fails, the local Recycling centre (in that order). All the monies raised can then go into my ticket fund so I can go to lots more shows and then write about them here. So I'm recycling my junk into concert reviews (no jokes please). I'll let you know how it goes and I'll be posting my progress on Twitter as the week goes by.

Are you out and about this week? I'm sure there will be plenty of fun things going on I've missed so please leave a comment and tell the world about the good stuff.

Bye for now,

Chalky xo
