So what do bands do between sound check and then playing? Last night we went to see Operator Please last night in Bournemouth at a place called 60 Million Postcards. It's a pub if I'm honest, a large pub yes, but still a pub. We arrive at about 7:40 and they were sound checking to the 4 or 5 people inside, us included, and did a couple of the singles and it was great, as you can see from the picture.
They then vanished and did play until 11 o'clock. Where did they go and what did they do? My thought is that they went to the restaurant across the road as it is rather nice or at least it was when we went there. But really, how do you kill 3 hours in Bournemouth on a Tuesday evening? There were 3 other bands playing last night and 2 of them were great, 1 was less good but I'm not going to insult them here, it's childish, but Jamie & The Lionhearts and Mes Memoires were great. When Operator Please returned they were fantastic, disgustingly young but fantastic. They do see to have lost a member though. I'm sure there was a small young lady play keyboards when we saw them before, oh well. It was a fantastic night out.
