Paul Simon
Does anyone want to see Paul Simon on Saturday night in return for 500-700 words? I could do with a reviewer though I appreciate it's not most of the people here's taste.

Personally I want to go to get some pictures for my Dad's Christmas present :-)

Fuck, I'd love to. Gnngh. Damn Rich Polley for having a birthday.

I'll do it!

I love Paul Simon (Graceland is one of my favourite all time albums).

Not to mention I'm always looking for new places to carry my scribblings.

I'll even pay my own fare over to Birmingham and back.

Who would the copy be for?

Without wanting to appear rude - who are you and how did you come across this post? :-)

Fair question:

Jack Rivet, scribbler and hack based in London (contributor of live reviews to Alternative Magazine, among other things - under my real name).

I found this post on the Strength Through Joy LJ Community Friends Page and thought it sounded like fun.

Forgive me if I intruded unexpectedly (which I guess I did). But it did look like a cattle call, and I will write for anyone anywhere.

Oh it's vaguely a cattle call - but that still doesn't mean I'd get someone into a gig on my name if I didn't know a little about them!

But sounds cool - can you drop me an email to my livejournal address then I'll get back to you after I've chased up one more loose end. And it's for BBC Onlime West Midlands.

Understandable.

Email coming, Jack Rivet - Paul Simon in the subject line.

A better introduction and links to stuff I've written (though I would adjust my style more towards that of bbc online for the review).

Couldn't find an email address for your LJ, so I sent it to info at disturbing dot org dot uk.

Hope that's okay.

Gotta run, duty calls.

I would love to if I didn't live in Edinburgh. I'm a huge fan of Paul Simon!

You're just a fair-weather fan - otherwise you'd be on a train!

I could even be persuaded to abandon my family and write in exchange for seeing PS, and I loathe writing. We will, however, be in Aberdeen. Bum. Hope you find someone.

I'm a famous writer and EVERYTHING.

You're my backup if that's ok?

I'd have thought this freebie was a bit below a professhonal like yourself but will definitely keep you in mind in the future if you are interested.
mrtonylee From: mrtonylee Date: November 9th, 2006 09:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Define backup... :-)

And professionals like me are always up for freebies...

Seriously though if you have someone sorted, don't worry - I'll go watch the lights be turned on. :-)
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: November 9th, 2006 09:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
I've swapped emails with jackrivet and will confirm the details tomorrow. If there are any issues, or I end up with more tickets than I expect I'll let you know.

In the future, let me know any gigs you'd like freebies for. I'd love for you to write with my pics.
mrtonylee From: mrtonylee Date: November 9th, 2006 10:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
drop me a line at mrtonylee [at] gmail.com and let me know what gigs you're looking for someone...

Had you considered asking your Dad to go with you?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: November 9th, 2006 08:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah - he was my no.1 choice but is both a long way away and too busy. Plus I'm not sure of his reviewing skills :-)
