Thanks to anyone and everyone who attended gigs during Fringe Week. It was a brilliant week and from my perspective I was delighted with how Fringe Thursday turned out.

From the first act at the launch to the final act on Fringe Thursday I can't thank everyone enough for taking part and thank you to the promotors who took on events during Fringe Week, I got to most and they were all well attended and the atmosphere everywhere I went was brilliant.

Im interested in feedback from people for the whole week and for Fringe Thursday (I didnt get to all the venues, i got to 5 of the 9). Where did you go, who did you see. Any constructive feedback on how we can further improve would be appreciated but keep the slagging to a minimum.. Im a bit fragile right now :-)

Thanks again

Well... I spent the Thursday night in The Donkey - reclined in a comfy arm chair with pc atop my lap dispensing easy listening tunes between turns. And a fine night it was! Just missed the beginning of Yellowbelly's set but as I arrived the place was heaving and atmosphere was ace - as you might probably expect. The line up reflected t'Donkey's music policy amicably and ran pretty much like clockwork, with a rather flustered - but always right on the job in hand - Gaz B. at the helm. Lots of singing, dancing and general bon hommie was had.

I did notice there was a lot of movement in and out of the venue early in the night, on to and off of the buses and the crowd did seem to completely change round between a couple of the bands, but then I guess the movement of audience between venues is something that has been actively encouraged? It reminded of the festival actually - how folks trot between the hall and outside stages en masse. It did thin out pretty sharpish later too... I wonder if the start times could be even earlier? It might seem odd to start a gig at, well, even 6pm, but if people are setting up camp at DH in the afternoon or just want to get their heads down for work the next morning, it might be worth considering? But I only saw one venue's night!

Ace fun. Scaley Fuego were my personal fave.

yeah it seems an awful lot of people seemed to develop a plan to go to the donkey first, then begin a pub crawl into town. all the buses were busiest for the donkey from the start of the night.
