“ alright it’s the reverend here
on Monday the 12th September I’m gonna play a lil acoustic gig live on you stream at 9 o’clock. it’s gonna be at my mates den which nowadays is club 60 studios. The cellar is/was the legendary 60,s club 60 where many famous touring artists played their first gig. John Lee hooker was a regular and even John Lennon had a membership card. Put simply it’s the coolest space in the world. untouched by neon advertising and smoking laws. frozen by the time lord in 1962.
How do you get to see the gig? Basically follow me’ @jonmcclure on twitter and introduce a new follower to me’ and I’ll send u the link to watch live. Put simply I’m a boss on twitter and I deserve more followers than Susan Boyle. So get on it and we can have it. “
