Me, Live at the Spice of Life in London's West End

Me being Grangousier. (That's my MeFi superhero name, my real name is John Peacock). And this being a gesture in the general direction of promoting said bout of self-expression in the general direction of anyone who might have met me at a previous MeFi piss-up social event and consequently be interested or curious or such. I'll be playing a half-hour set at 20:00 in the basement of The Spice of Life, right in the heart of London's West End, next door to Singing in the Rain. It's free to get in, which is important in these days of reduced access to coinage. [more inside]
