We arrived at the Bowling Green to find it busier than normal, possibly to do with the bank holiday the next day and possibly because Mel from The Makeouts had got all of her mates down for their support slot.
Anyway, by the time the Makeout took to the stage, the place was packed shoulder to shoulder. Paul and I made sure we got our priorities in order and sorted out our beer roadies. Cheers to Marnie and Dave for that :-)
We'd decided to do one set, the first time we've ever attempted that and it worked really well. We rocked the place with people jumping around and singing along. With so many people, it was very hot and sweaty.
At the end of our set, we got permission to do another 3 songs as an encore including "So What", specially requested by Makeouts Kate. Then when the audience still wanted more, we finished with our one and only REOFFENDERS original - Bad Girl, Naughty Girl, Back in Your Box.
A truly awesome night. Thanks to everyone for coming. Cheers to The Makeouts and to Greg for doing the sound.
