Gig: 19th May - Heaven of the South

Macaroni Penguins will be returning to the Heaven of the South, Mountain Biking Festival on 19th May 2012 at Kingswood, as the world didn't end the last time we played Heaven. This year we'll be playing inside the Village Hall from 7pm - 8pm (so the power should be a bit cleaner).

I realise that you'll have to be quite a committed fan to cycle 46 miles just to have a chance of seeing us for an hour, but hey, the weather might not be as bad as you expect!

Gig: 28th January - The Black Horse, North Nibley

Today (21st January), is the 17th Anniversary of Macaroni Penguins first ever gig.

Yes, just 17 short years ago myself, Mark, Mike, Fred and a TR-505 drum machine crammed into Piggy's sitting room and played 11 songs, finishing, as has now become tradition, with Stepping Stone.

Next week - Saturday, 28th January 2012 - we will be playing at The Black Horse in North Nibley to celebrate their 1st Anniversary as the landlords of the pub. Come along and appreciate the polish that the intervening 17 years, 1 week and 119 gigs have given us.

Update: We will be playing at 9pm.
