* MCats Gig 34: Gores 8 Palmer Ln.

2011-07-16_19-38-15

I’m pretty sure that yesterday the MCats set a record for the total number of songs played in a gig: 42!

Of course, because 42 is the answer to everything!

The photos are a bit out of focus, but the party-goers all celebrated Valerie’s 39th birthday (39, right?) in style!

Thanks to the Gores for hosting a fine event on a great evening for a party in Acton!

I even manged to capture a before (sound check) and after (last call) video. So you can see why “set 1” songs differ from “set 3” songs. Party on!
