The Perils Of Performance
by Russell Turner - 13:06 on 17 February 2018
It feels a while since City Limits last played. Despite that, apart from the odd clanger, our performance at Foxes last night was a good one, enjoyed by an enthusiastic crowd. This was fortunate because two brides- and grooms-to-be that we knew about were in the pub to check us out, and who knows how many more that we didn’t.
We finished, after an encore of Shut Up And Dance, to the crowd baying for more and moaning loudly when they didn’t get it. Then Robbie Williams’ Angels came on the PA, everyone joined in and immediately forgot about us. Crowds can be fickle.
The down side of the evening is that my calf didn’t like standing up for three hours with little movement – the Foxes performance area is not the size or shape for fancy stagecraft. This morning my lower leg and ankle were swollen, which means I’m now a real runner: wearing a compression sock, sitting with my leg up resting on Matchgirl’s medicinal peas.
A return to action on Monday might be optimistic. We’ll see.
