See Beth Orton, at the Rescue Rooms

Hey, ok the first music event for the new group. This is also a Gig Buddies event. Beth Orton is a lovely singer songwriter, mainly acoustic, from home shores. I first came across her when she was nominated for the Mercury Prize for her second album, "Central Reservation", still my fave. I saw her last year and despite having a bad cold and being rather pregnant she wow'd us all, giving a very heart felt and interactive performance. She now has a new album out, worth a listen. [available on Spotify]. I've just checked, [Sat morn Nov10th, 11am] and there are still tickets left.

There are I think 4 of us going so far on Gig Buds, but I thought maybe someone may fancy it from here. It may sell out, I don't know, so do consider that if you are interested. Thank you.

    Thanks everyone for coming along. She was great and I agree I'm not sure the venue was quite right, I liked it more at the Glee Club. :o)

    Thanks Gillian, lovely evening but thought the venue weren't quite right for Beth Orton. I wanted some chair to sit on :)

    Empathetic lyrics and her voice reminded me of Dido a bit :) Thank you Gill.

    Hi Gill, are we meeting there at 7.30?

      I think so. On the original Gig Buds page it says 7.30pm, I kinda put the same time. Perhaps in the entrancey bit, I've only been there briefly once. :o) It says doors 7.30 on the ticket too. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the cross posting, I signed off gig buddies a while back, when I got a zero response to a gig I posted; and I've completely missed that Beth O was playing in Notts.

    I just wanted to add as it's a week night, that gone are the days of gigs until midnight at Rock City etc. They tend to be finished by 10.30 these days so it needn't be a late night. :o) That may help any Derby folk who want to come over too.

      Yes Ewan, she's really good, very down to earth and has a unique voice. Well, I think so. :o)
