/Welcome to the Future/172/Livestreams and new releases 30-Apr 2021

Starting a path back to normal after a week or more away from this website thanks to moving house, and the first tentative step back is to resume the weekly Friday posts. In addition, I’ve overhauled the events page in a big way, so see the link further down for that. Livestreams and waiting for new releases seem to be the order of the day, for now, still, so I continue to wrap up both.

/Upcoming/Livestreams/Gigs/Club Nights/Events
Obviously, things change at short notice right now, and I’m updating events as they are postponed or cancelled, and also including relevant Livestreams as they are announced.

/amodelofcontrol.com continues to maintain an events calendar, but it has now moved to /amodelofcontrol.com/events – and is now a dynamic, searchable database, and you can add individual events to your own calendars.

If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above. It goes without saying that any gig or club still in the listing is subject to change at short notice, or may not happen at all.

/amodelofcontrol.com/next week
/Tuesday Ten/452 will come next week, as well as a couple of new interviews (with LONESAW and Terminal) now that I’ve transcribed them – having finally moved house, I’m intending on finding some time to get them online this weekend.

The plan is for Livestreams to resume this coming week, but that very much depends on whether our fibre broadband is installed early next week (as was booked). Watch this space.
