Good call. I saw Harvey play a gig in Cyndee Lee Rule & Optiques
Jeff's living room over here in the USA. It was very cool. I'd love to
see many more such intimate shows, but somebody inconveniently placed
a large ocean between the countries which makes it less practical.
People still living in the UK have less of an excuse. It really
doesn't take a huge area to put on a couple of performers (such as
Trev & Kev) and if its your house, you get to relax on your favorite
sofa or recliner while they entertain you. Admittedly you may not be a
stellar space rock violin player or master vegan cupcake baker like
Cyndee, but if the audience hasn't been over here they won't have been
spoilt with those unreasonable expectations. :)
