- You see the security guys dancing to your soundcheck
- The bar staff tell you how good you were
- Audience members who came to see another band introduce you to their other halves after your set
- The band (following you) that got you the gig say they want to play with you again
- The morning after the gig the band Facebook page has three posts from people who’d never seen you before saying how much they liked the set
Friday’s Filthy Spectacula set at the Bristol Bierkeller ticked all those boxes, as well as a very competent and (just as important) unflappable sound engineer, an atmospheric venue and most importantly two great bands after us who were kind enough to ask us on to the bill. Cheers all round Inkkubus Sukkubus and Cauda Pavonis, let’s do it again soon!
