I'm gonna say at smaller venues, I don't understand how they're making some gig tickets so cheap.

Wet Leg at the Mash House last week was a tenner.

Next gig is Illuminati Hotties - £8 (plus a booking fee). The Hug & Pint holds about a hundred. They're over from the US touring for a few weeks and have to fund band and crew and all their expenses out of that, and I know they'll hope to top it up a bit with merch sales and the venue will be making their money from drink, but I still struggle to see how the economics of it work. And f**k knows what happens if anyone in that touring party gets covid.

She/they are a whole bunch of fun. Despite the shorts.

Just booked a ticket for the Kae Tempest gig at Beat Generator in Dundee in June. £12.50, to keep the cost theme going.

Slim pickings for Dundee gigs these days. Church seems to have given up putting on live bands, it's all drag queens these days, must be more profitable for them. The Slessor Gardens events are pretty uninspiring; Noel Gallagher, The Stereophonics, Simply Red? Big names right enough but dull dull dull.

Just snaffled some freebies for the Bigfoot Festival in Milton Keynes (more or less) in June. 

Not the most inspiring line-up considering they have apparently relocated and increased capacity from 2k to 10k, but enough on there to keep me happy for the grand price of f**k all!

I  was at The Hydro for the first time since the beginning of 2019 tonight.

Lesson learnt tonight is check your pint  before you leave the bar. Had a couple of pints and both were about 60-70% (probably a bit generous with that estimate tbh) beer and the rest foam. They have switched to paper cups which I'm guess means that the staff can't tell as easily when a cup is actually full.

I ended up using the torch on my phone to show how little they'd actually poured.

Worth keeping an eye out for if you're going there for a gig in the future.

I got a bottle, and they filled the pint cup up with it!

Question here about Ticketmaster and their eTickets

Since it seems I can't get a physical one for Arcade Fire and the electronic version is the only option, how does this work? It says the tickets will be in my account or in the app and "When you go mobile, your tickets will not be e-mailed to you or available to print." Does this mean if you don't have a smartphone, you effectively can't use this service?

You could access your Ticketmaster account on someone else's device and send yourself a screenshot of the QR code

That was the case recently for me plus 3 family for Feeder. 1 was not required but the sell back thing was unavailable.

Is it just a QR code you can access/screenshot/scan at will? If you can do that why would they say you can't print it out, wouldn't that just be the same thing?
