Tour Date 2 – The Fox and Hounds – Stony Stratford – 1st Feb 2015

The Box Ticked at The Fox and Hounds - 1st Feb 2015Having found a place to crash for the night with people we know, the weary but excited Box Ticked made their way from Wolverton over towards Stony Stratford for the mid-way point of their tour of Milton Keynes.

Scribal Gathering always attracts a fascinating mix of music and poetry, and this was the first of a new ‘second night’ each month for them.  The Box Ticked were headlining the show with a short set, which gave us an opportunity to play at a new venue, and in front of some new people.

The Box Ticked at Scribal gathering - Feb 1st 2015The Fox and Hounds has a stage and a PA and it’s a great little venue – it was the first time I’d set foot inside the place, so it was a pleasant surprise to see what a great place it was.  We leapt onto the stage and kicked off with Plugging Away – we were buzzing from the previous night’s Craufurd gig, so we were in the mood to rock out.

We played a good mix of current, older and brand spanking new, with both Lucky and Every Seven Seconds getting an airing again.  Old Helicopter song Eyeliner was pretty storming if I do say so myself, and we finished on Musical Differences, which is becoming something of an anthem.

A great venue, with a great crowd and I think we rocked 🙂
