Da's hopes dashed

Many thanks to the folks at the Trent House Open Mic night. Asked to be put on the list at about 9:20 and was told tersely "We're full". Stayed to hear a couple of songs during which other musicians came in and were put on the list.
Conclusion either 1. A clique, or 2. Ageist.
Thanks guys - won't be going there again.

P.S. for fans of the never-ending tour, tomorrow will see the unvailing of a new Men of the Tyne show in the lovely town of Jarrer - so no Habit setlist for yous. Sorry.


  1. Take heart. Even the Beatles had knockbacks.

  2. Can we get Amnesty International involved?

  3. I was there - Da was dissed. I overheard on young player remark: "Keep him out - he looks like Matt Munro."

  4. I heard it as "Matt Munro's Da."
    This story has legs...

  5. If it was on artistic grounds, then fair enough. But ageism? Disgraceful.

  6. It was 'Save All Your Kisses For Me' that did the damage for Da...
