Fringe survivor

The festival came, took over my peaceful city & put about a million tourists in my path. I took full advantage by seeing as many shows as I could fit in, staying up til 5am more times than I should, dancing, laughing & having a great time. This was also my busiest time at work (which was almost all about the festival), so it really felt like it took over my whole life.

Now I'm knackered, a bit poor and glad to have spent the day on my sofa.. but, ah. It was great.

2011 festival show count:
  • Assembly Gala (Rock the Ballet, Paul Daniels, Jimeoin, Pink Noise by Fork & more)
  • Dead Cat Bounce
  • Late n Live (Patrick Monahan, Axis of Awesome)
  • Auld Reekie Roller Girls (obviously not a show, but definitely part of the fringe!)
  • Hannibal Buress
  • The Pajama Men
  • Pete Firman 
  • Late n Live (Randy, Rich Hall, James Sherwood)
  • Part three of the Qatsi trilogy
  • Frisky and Mannish
  • Diane Spencer
  • Neil Gaiman and Audrey Niffenegger
  • Amnesty Stand Up for Freedom (Mark Watson, Ed Byrne, loads & loads more)
  • Sammy J and Randy
  • David O'Doherty
  • Michel Faber (with Romola Garai)
  • James Robertson and Irvine Welsh
  • Piff the Magic Dragon
... phew. Bring on September (and SLEEPING).
