Topic: Garrett Klahn (Texas is the reason)

Mods, please don't move this as I need a bit of help.

So his London show got cancelled because tickets were £17.50 (?!?!?!?!?!) and it didn't sell enough pre-sales.
he gets into London on Wedesday and I am trying to either sort a show for him or get him to jump on a gig that night.

i have tried all ideas so far and most venues are obviously booked up. Any ideas for spaces/gig places for free/relatively cheap that I could arrange this for.
Also any gigs I could get him to jump onto would be great.

Has to be London (surrounding areas) as his train out to Paris is on Thursday.

Thanks for any help

Re: Garrett Klahn (Texas is the reason)

my first question would be who set the price as that?

I'm not singing for the future
I'm not dreaming of the past
I'm not talking of the first time
I never think about the last

Re: Garrett Klahn (Texas is the reason)

Its absurd and its why it obviously didn't sell. Some knob promoter who obviously didn't have a clue.

Re: Garrett Klahn (Texas is the reason)

Ooft. Hope it works out but that is mental. Some promoter needs shot.

Don't know if this is of any use, but a pub down the road from me that generally puts on bluesy/folky stuff has Thrill Jockey act the Black Twig Pickers playing tomorrow night: www.whatscookin.co.uk

Re: Garrett Klahn (Texas is the reason)

Black Twig Pickers are a lot of fun

Re: Garrett Klahn (Texas is the reason)

Just wondering if he managed to sort any gigs and if anyone saw him was it any good?

Can you really be sure of the goddamn time of day?

Re: Garrett Klahn (Texas is the reason)

No interest in seeing him play but Garrett Klahn is a fantastic name. I'd like to see him and Greg Kihn collaborate.
