The Tweets of the week in the London Borough of Barnet - 27th November 2022

How has your week been, I had a wonderful week, my Band the False Dots had an amazing time at The Dublin Castle on Wednesday. As a rule I don't post Barneteye tweets here, but I saw this from Mark Amies and as the band had been gigging this week, I thought I'd share an amuzing anecdote with you, I can't believe this happened nearly 30 years ago.

We won't mention the footie though. I'm sure you've been waiting with baited breath to find out what our local tweeters have been up to, so without further ado, here is our round up.

1. There is only one place to start. The sad event of the passing of the legend that was Wilko Johnson, reminded many of us of his amazing appearances at The Torrington, also sadly gone, in Finchley. RIP Wilko, you will be much missed. The last time I saw Wilko was at the Premiere of the Feelgoods film, Oil City Confidential. He did a Feelgoods set, with Alison Moyet on vocals and it was awesome.

2. Next up is  this wonderful thread, about Samuelson's film services in Cricklewood and Hendon. If you are interested in local history, this is a must read

3. Proper blokes have mental health challenges. And proper blokes help each other through them

4. Ever thought of vounteering? Well if you have, this may be of interest

5. Footballing legend David Johnson passed away this week. I was thrilled to see this picture of him at Spurs old training groung on Page St. RIP to a legend

6. A great picture from a good mate of this blog

7. Fancy some great theatre on your doorstep

8. Have to give a shout out to these lovely lads, who played with us at The Dublin Castle in Camden on Wednesday. If you get a chance, go and see them play. They are at The Spice of Life in Soho on Weds 30th November. One of the great things about being a musician is that when you gig, you meet lovely people.

9. Nice pic of Mill Hill Broadway in the rain

10. And a top tip for all you aspiring musicians

That's all folks!
