AP Johnson Tribute 11/07/15

with MC Dave Dawson, Leslie Avril, Little Liver Band, Brenda Joy, Kenny Joe Blake, Sarah Carroll and Chris Wilson, Crown of Thorns
Rainbow Hotel, Saturday 11th July 2015

I had enjoyed the Chick Ratten tribute at the same venue last year and wanted to try and make it to this one. Originally I was going to go to the Ice Cream Hands show up the road also but decided against it as I had been up late the night before and wanted to go to Suzannah's single launch the next day.

Leslie Avril's band was already underway when I arrived. I did not expect to get a seat due to being so many people there but I tried to stay out of the way.

The Little Liver Band had members of AP Johnson's band the Dead Livers and played some of his songs.

There were also a couple of people who had played with AP Johnson who sang some songs that people enjoyed.

Due to having another gig to get to across town Sarah and Chris played early.

I ended up leaving during Crown of Thorns as I was falling asleep during the gig, I will see them again one day.

I also ended up missing the Gusset Rustlers and they hardly get to play. Not really much point of staying somewhere just for the sake of it when I stop having fun though.
