Park Life

Macaroni Penguins are pleased to be playing the 2008 Upton Snodsbury Music Festival, which takes place on Saturday, 13th September 2008, at Upton Snodsbury Park.

We will be finishing off the festival, playing between 9:30pm and 10:30pm, but there will be over 7 hours of live music over two stages from 3pm, as well as various stalls, crafts and family friendly entertainment. See the festival web site for details.

Advance tickets are £8 (£4 concessions), and are available from the festival web site. This festival is a fund raising event for the charity responsible for the management of the park.

Licence To Chill

The next Macaroni Penguins gig will be the Frocester Chill Out at The Old Spot, Dursley on Sunday, 24th August 2008. We will be playing from 6:30pm ("so we can be louder", apparently), but there will be stuff going on from 2pm until closing time. Entry is free.

We've been rehearsing a few new songs (new to us that is - if we get them right you should be able to recognise them as songs you've heard before), and if you're really lucky we'll try a few at The Old Spot.

Earlier this year The Old Spot was voted National Pub of the Year by CAMRA, and this gig will provide it with another honour. As well as being Gig 90 this performance will enshrine The Old Spot as Macaroni Penguins' most popular venue. Currently it's a tie between The Old Spot and The Prom, having played 13 gigs at each venue.

Come down and enjoy the fun... we hope to see you there...

Singing In The Rain

So, now we know why Slimbridge is the home of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. The weather at this years Slimbridge Beer Festival was wild, foul and wet. But we'd like to say a big thank-you to everyone who stayed through the rain to watch our set. We hope you enjoyed it, and have dried out by now.

I'd also like to thank the kind person that lent me an umbrella so I could watch the other two acts without getting completely soaked. I'm afraid I couldn't find you after we came off stage, but the brolly is not lost, if you can get in touch I will get it back to you. Otherwise, I'll bring it along to our next gig at The Old Spot, Dursley on 24th August.

Also, if anyone has any photos of the band playing at the festival, please leave a comment so we can have a look.
