So I feel as if I’ve been relatively quiet recently. I’ve skipped a few weeks of posting about creativity (or rather forgotten/not done/been too busy/not been busy/procrastination is king), so I thought I’d write a little update on goings on; or rather what’s not going on.
Reflecting on February I had a wonderful month away from a day job. This was the first time in around 10 years that I’d had this length of time off. It was great. However, I still managed to fill those 4 weeks or so with tonnes of stuff, meaning that I didn’t really take a break, but it was ok (I didn’t jet off on holiday anywhere is what I mean; I probably should have done that though)
I’d like to jump to late March. New day-job going swimmingly and I was fortunate enough to have been invited back to play for CHK ONE in Bristol. The guys kindly asked if I would pop down for a chat and performance on their new Facebook Live stream, so you can check that out by clicking the link below (only available on their Vimeo channel)
We played the live show with Pitch Black around a week later and it was probably one of the funnest gigs me and Matt had played despite us both being in terrible moods beforehand. We had great fun (Check out the cheeky live stream here: https://www.facebook.com/5thspear/videos/1107939252645740/). The team there are always so supportive and friendly, so I want to say a big thank you to CHK ONE for having us again. You can also check out a review of the night over on their website; some super kind words… http://www.chkone.com/review-pitch-black-the-attic/
On to April; it’s been a weird one. You may or may not have noticed that there haven’t been any posts on creativity this month. I’ve been feeling a little fraudulent about the whole thing as I’ve been in a bit of a creative rut myself, so didn’t feel it appropriate to be preaching about things too much. This months topic was about Independents, so I wrote and re-wrote a few things which as per usual have lead to a few self realisations. These realisations will be posted soon for you to have a read, so I hope that they help in some way if you do read them, and I’ll be posting those throughout the last week of April.
I’ve got a few gigs lined up so keep your eyes on Facebook and Twitter to keep in the loop with those. Links are at the top ^^
