I used to frequent the Saltire Open Mic night in Livingstone before the big shakedown. They hosted an online version and so I thought I'd catch up with the auld crew.
I went back to Perth one week after speaking at the Awakening Scotland event to perform in a Street Poetry event ran by Ran Marathon.
Singer Songwriter Petra runs a fabulous open mic night at The Ice Box in Glasgow and I went along to check it out.
Since I returned from Turkey back to Scotland I had performed a few gigs as Nob Stewart including one at Cheeky Besoms. However, I felt just being myself would be more appropriate so I went back with the tamer version of my good self.
I went along to Falkirk's main open mic night which is on at North Star.
I went along to take part in another Gong Show which I vowed to myself I would never do again. I should have listened to myself.
I attempted one more gig in Didim but after one poem I realised it was not my crowd and pulled the plug on gigs in Turkey forever.
I performed a gig in King Bar in Antalya on my birthday.
I went along to Lach's Anti-Hoot at Henry's Cellar Bar with some material which I thought may be a bit hard to put over but it went ok in Glasgow so I was hoping for the best.
I went along to The Roxy in Glasgow to perform some poetry at Marta Adamowicz's monthly event.
