What gigs are you going to?

The idea is not to turn this into an "I'm going to more than you" style thread but more a, "Hey, I'm going to the same gig as you!" thread, as the times I've bumped into forums people or had near misses have all been at gigs, thought it might be easier to know in advance that they're going to be there!

So anyone want to post their gig lists, or is this a dumb idea?

Nothing planned at the moment (had to miss both Patti Smith/Television and the Long Ryders due to lack of money ).

I'm waiting for the Véronique Sanson dates to be properly confirmed before deciding which I shall go to as driving to somewhere like Rouen or Lille may prove cheaper than flights *and* a hotel in Paris.

Otherwise, fingers and bank balance crossed for PJ Harvey. I could do with a friend's band supporting really...
