Chaz Royal's Burlesque Ball

I am back in Cardiff, and pleased to see that there is Burlesque on just down the road in the Globe tonight. I wonder if I can persuade Mum and Dad to take it in.

Less whimsically, I see that Robben Ford is there on Wednesday 13 July. A member of the L.A. Express who has collaborated with Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, George Harrison, Larry Carlton and Kiss among others, he was named one of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of the 20th Century" by Musician magazine, and is particularly cherished by me as I had a teach yourself blues guitar cassette tape based course by him back in the day. If you ever see me busking the blues, he is the man to blame.

I can't see me getting to Cardiff on a school night, but he is playing in London on the Monday of that week as well.
