Sunday Driver were invited to play at the Asylum in Lincoln on Friday night – the UK’s biggest Steampunk gathering.
On the down side, I hadn’t realised quite how far away from London Lincoln actually is, and it took hours to get there and back again. On the plus side, it was the only gig I’ve ever played where I’ve felt underdressed compared with the audience.
They were followed by comedian Andrew O’Neill, doing his “Totally Spot-On History of British Industry”. It was very funny, but went on a bit too long. We were getting really cold and needed to go home!
Along the way, there was a woman dressed as a Victorian playing the steel drum. It sounded brilliant, especially her rendition of “Birdhouse in Your Soul”:
I arrived early and settled down with a small glass of white wine and some MiniCheddars to do a spot of knitting:
What’s that I see?
Steampunks, knitting, dressing up, MiniCheddars and steel drums – pretty much the perfect day 🙂
(the less we talk about getting home at 3am the better…)
Edited to add:
And this. Ace stand-in tabla player Renu and a man with a stag’s head. If you have ANY idea what’s going on in this pic, I'[d love to hear it…
