With Christmas and New Year out of the way, Getintothis’ Simon Kirk has the first gig guide of 2019.
Top of the new year, folks!
So, the festive period is over and it’s time to get back into the swing of things, amid the backdrop of cold, wet, miserable weather. It’s hard, isn’t it? Just trying to remember what day it is seems like a monumental task.
There’s not much rumbling on this week as everyone seems to be taking a well deserved breather.
That’s okay, though. There’s still a few bits and pieces to gnaw on, so if you have itchy feet and need to get out and about then try one of these on for size.
