IN my six years of gigging I've played some pretty strange gigs, but Saturday's has to be up there with the oddest of them.
The Glass Onion in Peterborough (on Burleigh Road) is a pub converted into an open community art centre by the incredibly artistic people of Muddy Promotions (spearheaded by Moony, lead singer of Opaque).
I appeared on stage as drummer with The Deadlines. However, this was no normal gig - as a celebration of the launch, this evening was a murder mystery night.
And at the end of our rather storming set in which many actors from the script were in character throughout (intense fans, roadies, management), it was time for the game to begin. Our singer, Gavin Bates (or Tarantula, as he was known on the night) was "murdered".
You may also want to watch:
A big confrontation of the characters followed for another half an hour before the killer was announced and some level of normality was resumed.
The Glass Onion is very worthy of your attention. This is a remarkable venue run purely by like-minded volunteers.
