Default Who's coming to the London Drum Show, October 13th/14th ?

Ok, I know I'm a bit early on this, but there's a reason behind it. I've been speaking to the organisers today, & tickets are getting close to sold out for both days!!!! So, if you're in the UK, or even if you're close to the UK & fancy a fantastic drummy day out, don't miss out. Astounding value for money when you consider the quality & selection of artists performing continuously across two theatres in Olympia.

http://www.londondrumshow.com/

There's already a good few Drummerworld "stalwarts" making the effort, even travelling from France & Germany to be there, so come on down, join in the Guru Origin series launch party, hit the town with us (& some guest celeb's) Saturday night, see some of the best drummers on the planet performing for your pleasure, & a great gear exhibition too. Tickets are £15 all inclusive. Now that's value :) :) :)

Booked, now let's just hope I can scrape enough together for the train fare!

PS. Stoked to see the new kit.

Hey! Fantastic! Great to hear it! Which faculty is she going in for? I was in LICA.

If she needs any advice about Lancaster and the area, PM me and I'll give you my email. I have no issue with her contacting me if there are any questions.

PS. Ask her if the transvestite DJ still does Thursday nights at Hustle. She'll know where it is after Fresher's week. I used to live right over the road from the hospital and in my third year right behind the Student Union Nightclub.

I'd like to go. Probably on the Sunday like last time because Derek Roddy is most relevant to my interests. Who will be there then?

Derek messaged me & said he'd mosey on over to the Guru stand & say hello :)

I'll be there Sunday Ben :) + Henri, & doubtless a few other DW "saddos" too! That said, I might be a bit delicate in the morning, there's rumblings of a drummer "night on the tiles" Saturday. Last year was bad enough with Kevin from Pendulum, Kenny Aronoff, & a selection of drum business reprobates until silly hours in the morning. Ron Jeremy featured as well, if I remember correctly ;)

Nice one Derek :) You'll find a warm welcome over at the Guru stand. The drummerworld guys tend to use it as a meeting point, & for general discussions about nothing important. Hey, are you landing on Saturday for your Sunday performance? If so, we're probably staying in the same place. All the exhibitors & most of the performing artists have a get together in a pub opposite Olympia. It's hosted by the organisers. We usually start there then head out to eat, chill, & talk crap. You're super welcome to join us :)

Andy.

The Mayor will be there if only in spirit wishing you nothing but good luck. From what I have seen and heard you should be in good shape. And have fun.

Was glad to receive an email from the London Drum Show the other day promoting the launch of the Guru drums. It's all going on!

Hope it works out! Which day?

I think we should post pictures of ourselves so that we know what eachother looks like. I also think we should have some kind of 'identifier' on our person at the show. Like a blank label or a badge of some sort. Any ideas?

Saturday

And I've already said what I should be wearing, but here's a recent pic, for reference:

Excellent! See you there then.

I'll try to find a non-offensive picture. I'll most likely be wearing my Joy Division 'Unknown Pleasures' t-shirt so I should be pretty easy to spot.

I'll be there in spirit. Since I can't legally make it there, I will be sending a lifesize cardboard cutout of myself. I'm pretty sure that doesn't violate my probation. If you could just bend it and sit it down behind a Guru Origin kit, and snap a pic...I'd be forever grateful....

Darn, I'll be missing that by a couple of weeks. I'll be in the neighborhood— on the continent, anyway— from late October to mid November. Anyone who wants to hang in Paris, Brussels, Antwerp, Aachen, or Luxembourg drop me a PM...

Send it over Larry. I'll have it pictured with some celeb's for you :)

Guys, it's sort of traditional to use the Guru stand as a meeting point, or at least a message point, but whatever you do, if you're coming Saturday, don't miss our launch performance from Michele Drees at 1:30.

Anyone thinking of coming needs to nail their tickets now, & I mean NOW! This isn't promo BS, it's a fact, this show will sell out. I expect the Saturday to sell out in days, & the Sunday not far behind. Saturday sold out last year, & Sunday was very close. Pre sales this year are double last year's numbers, so it will happen, & soon. I might be able to help out if you're too late & it's sold out, but I can't promise it, so please don't rely on it.

Really looking forward to meeting our forum members. We should get a Saturday & Sunday group photo. Maybe we could arrange a time? I know Derek would be up for that. He's performing Sunday, & he's a valued forum member = cool!
