    Default First Gig

    Seeing as we've had first record bought and 12th birthday #1 we may as well have a First Gig Attended theme. So here goes,

    The Jam - Royal Court, Liverpool, 25/9/82. A Saturday I believe.

    Earliest one I can remember is Patti Smith at the Grugahalle in Essen in about 1977.

    Somewhat embarrassingly, I believe it was Showaddywaddy at the Bristol Colston Hall, probably around '79.
