NotesThe open mic at The Railway Tavern, right next to Tulse Hill station, had been running for about three years when I finally got to play there on 7 September 2014.

Regular hostess Gabby Colledge was away on the night I visited, but had responded to my earlier text enquiry within minutes to let me know that the gig was still on.

Her stand-in turned out to be the redoubtable (and famously calm) Carl Chamberlain of Sing For Your Supper fame, so I immediately felt at home.

It is a corner of the pub gig with no actual stage, but it uses the powerful in-house PA so the sound was very good and plenty loud enough. Two microphones and two instrument inputs were available.

Some background noise was inevitable, of course, though I didn't find it too intrusive, and the audience seemed very appreciative (most being there to play).

Signup begins at 8:30 pm with the music starting soon afterwards and running until closing time - with a long journey home I had to leave before the end, and forgot to ask when exactly that would be.

Contact Gabby (texts only please) for more details.
