Countdown to The Gathering
It's only ten days until I make the annual pilgrimage to North Wales to enjoy The 21st Gathering of Mike Peters and The Alarm.
It is one of the best weekends in the year in my book. I get to meet up with some of the finest people from across the globe, get to meet old and new friends, have a great laugh taking part in the annual Alarm Mastermind (I made the final last year only losing by a single point!). Oh, there's also lots and lots of music. Joe Silva is back for the second year, The Hummingbirds are playing support on Saturday Evening and then of course there will a Friday night performance from Mike Peters and a full set by The Alarm on Saturday evening. On top of that a forum that I'm part of called The Wasting Land are celebrating their 10th Anniversary and Friday after the music in the main venue is over we are having a party.
