The ABC, obviously.

Maybe they could play Cardiff Castle? Or the Buckley Tivoli?

I don't expect to get there till near six, but I'm sure there'll be a few of the usual suspects before hand...

:?: I’m new to the forum and still learning it’s ways… what’s the etiquette for meeting up before the show? How do we recognize one another? Do we all wear aviator sunglasses? Is it ok to mention the meetup on the Sisters of Mercy Facebook group?

We've normally just picked a pub near the venue and turned up. :wink:
To be fair, a number of us do of course know each other quite well now.
Back in the day we had some Heartland t-shirts printed up - you might spot one of those.
I'm sure an fb group mention wouldn't go amiss - especially if it's on the actual Heartland group.
There's also a Wetherspoons quite near the venue that some members might prefer to go to...

Given I haven't been active on this forum for a few years do any of the other members want to chip in?

Note to self: do not wear aviators, frock coat and black hat to the pre-show meetup.

The FB group is The Sisters of Mercy Facebook Closed Group.

Probably at Nice n' Sleazys just before the Gig - http://www.nicensleazy.com/

Those visiting from further afield will probably meet up somewhere else early in the afternoon Image

Turn up, go to the pub everyone else is at, see a bunch of goffs, find the noisiest people, say "hello", everything else proceeds from there. We're a friendly lot and always welcoming to new people, so there's no need to be shy. 8) :notworthy:

I'll see you all there at Big Si's suggestion - Nice n' Sleazys. I get into Glasgow around 3, so if people want to meet somewhere earlier (I'll still be jet lagged so will be needing caffeine)
