Posted on by .

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter or a Happy Sunday depending on your personal persuasion. I myself had a wonderfully lazy day after being at The Belly Up the night before for Transfer, Blackout Party and Shakes Before Us. After a lovely night like that, I needed my day of rest. Which I had and it was lovely. But it’s a fresh week with a fresh batch of shows.
