But now she’s sent me a chatty email (is this real or imagined) to tell me she’s singing at a gig on Saturday 23 May at 8.30pm with a band called Bad Ass Brass, who also exist -(if having sound clips on Myspace works as a proof of existence….tricky these ontological proofs. )
The internal rhyme in the band’s name doesn’t work for those of us with estuary vowels, but would exist in Cheshire or Lancashire. (Which is the real, which the imagined place, call a structuralist?)
The gig exists….. in cyberspace….and its at the Ladbroke Grove Blag Club in Canalot Studios by the canal. (I’ve been there. No need for a philosopher)
(Tickets don’t exist). You can prove that you exist by getting on a guest list by emailing email@example.com Entry is £5.
For which you get quite a lot: the Blag Club has a 3am licence (please rely on Sartre or Lacan – rather than LondonJazz -to prove to you that 3am in a night club exists) , and after the band have finished the DJs take over.
This is a young pro band, they will be having a good time. Assuming you like what you hear, you’ll have a great night. (But there again you might be imagining it).
