I am playing in the 12 Bar Club in London on Friday at 8.04 pm.
In 2005 I wrote a song with John Devlin called Welcome To The Paul Gadd Institute Of Child Psychology, or rather John wrote it and I threw in the odd comma and full stop, and then in December I performed a musical comedy show called Welcome To The Paul Gadd Institute Of Child Psychology – The Nativity Rock Opera! OK it wasn’t a real rock opera but it had songs, some gags and a vague plot.
I have decided to stage the show again to mark the former Glitter king’s release from prison. To be honest as it was my first proper “show” I ever staged and it was well rough round the edges. So how could I do it again and keep it fresh along with the edginess?
For the last 12 months I have been intrigued as to how a Web 2.0 influenced gig would work. As in, the audience would write the content and therefore guiding the performer, as well as interacting with the space in a more performerlike fashion. Well the way I saw it was that if the audience were to give me come content and play some songs then maybe it might actually have more sense in it as well as sounding nice. So here it is: my first Gig 2.0 gig. Is it the World’s first? Not sure but I haven’t heard of any of this before.
Come on down. I wanna hear you play.
