Re: Philip Glass/Book of Longing Meetup in London 20/10/07

Hi,
Travelodge, City Road,
https://www.travelodge.co.uk/find_a_hot ... tel_id=340
still have rooms available at £49/room for the 20th October.
It only opens on October 1st.,so the standards should be ok.
It looks as if it's only 10 minutes from The Barbican.
Hope this helps

And if you stay a little longer you can see Christy Moore at The Hammersmith Apollo, 26th and 27th October and John Prine at the London Palladium on Sunday the 28th.
A good week for music in London!
All the best

Lightning,I don't know how difficult your Jacques Brel work is (a labour of love?) but it's great and much appreciated.It's better than listening to Scott Walker singing the songs of Jacques Brel or pretending to understand French.Thanks!

A bit dated (school milk !!,LP’s, Top Gear and sadly John Peel),and I can’t find any other references to the qu...
