Quote Me Unhappy

One of my real - real - pet hates is PRs going on about "FREE BOOZE AND FOOD" like that was reason enough to suffer some arse-achingly bad group / singer / performance / play / gallery opening or whatever. I am an adult with a variety of interesting jobs and, consequently, I can afford all the booze and food I need. If you want to waste your evenings hammering warm white wine while looking over your shoulder and wondering if the Rolling Rock has run out yet as some halitoidal lick-spittle in a bad suit shouts in your ear about potential sales figures, then, please, go ahead. But leave me out of it.
Anyway - this just in from a LiS reporter situated by a dramatic sweep in one of our leading rivers:

It was Transvision Vamp who said "I don't care"

Subject: Your invite to Ben Montague's media showcase on Tuesday 17th Feb at the 229 Club - Please RSVP


It was Eminem who said “Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted – one moment. Would you capture it or just let it slip?”

These words must have rung true with singer songwriter Ben Montague YES, YOU'RE RIGHT THEY MUST HAVE DONE - THIS IS A GOOD START, KEEP GOING! who, after discovering that Formula 1 boss Eddie Jordan was one of his fans, found himself rubbing shoulders GREAT PHRASE! with A-listers galore AGAIN WITH THE PHRASES! at one of his infamous Grand Prix parties. Following an impromptu collaboration by none other than Queen’s Roger Taylor and Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason TWO DRUMMERS! BRILLIANT! the question was put to the crowd “Are there any musicians in the house?” WELL, NOT THOSE TWO, OBV.

With nothing to lose and everything to gain Ben took to the stage, discussed a brief set list and delivered the performance of his life flanked by two of music’s biggest legends. Half an hour, and a standing ovation later, a star was born THIS IS AMAZING STUFF - HOW CAN I HEAR THIS GUY?!

Ben Montague invites you to his media showcase HURRAY! on BLAHBLAHBLAH February at BLAHBLAHBLAHBLAHBLAH (on stage at BLAHpm).

For press passes to any of his gigs or if you want to receive a copy of his debut EP BLAH BLAH BLAH then please get in contact.

PS: If you want some FREE BOOZE AND FOOD to warm your cockles in all this snow then BLAH showcase is tomorrow night. The Electro Indie rockers (who have just flown in from Ireland after supporting Blah - WOW! THEY'VE BEEN ON A PLANE!) will take to the Blah (Blah Street) Stage at Blahpm – get there for Blahpm to make the most of the free booze and grub! IF YOU ARE A TRAMP WITH NOTHING BETTER TO DO, YES
