The Last Stand; The last ever Rockgoblin at The Hobgoblin,

Saturday night is the last ever ‘Rockgoblin’ and that means 8 bands (yes 8!) and DJ’s late into the night.

It’s also fancy dress which has meant making costumes this week...... and no, we aren’t telling you. You’ll have to get down to the Hobgoblin in Staines to find out.

You will need your own costume though!

Sad? Yes very sad. This was a unique venue giving new, young local bands a chance to play. It also gave genres that wouldn’t normally get that kind of stage a chance to get heard. It’s a real loss.

I have no idea what will replace it (it will be smarter, slicker, tidier, politer, cleaner, quieter, older, and just a little less interesting.

I suspect there will be bigger audiences but the thrill will be missing.

And I’d rather hoped ‘The Hob’ would have carried on being The Hob long after I’d gone.

Anyway, Saturday night will be very special indeed for me.
