It’s the equivalent of that old radio tagline, “tune us in, then rip off the knob.”
On Saturday, those with the stamina and interest can claim a table at the Ship & Anchor at 10:30 for the Chelsea-Newcastle game. That English Premier League match is followed by a tape-delayed broadcast of Manchester Untied versus Fulham.
At 2 p.m. the open-stage jam with Tanyss Nixi begins. That wraps up four hours later (I didn’t use the word “stamina” lightly) and along the way Julia Lees, winner of the all-ages competition sponsored by the New Black Centre and the Ship & Anchor, performs.
Then you’ll have three hours to rest, eat a burger and get ready for The Remones. The band’s farewell show gets rolling at 9 p.m., but punctuality might be too much to expect.
It’s an all-day sucker for those over the age of 18. Better make that a sipper—and, if you stick it out, leave a generous tip and take a taxi home.
