The Editor's Bit

I don’t know if anybody noticed, but there were two different versions of The Stun in circulation last month. Not a big difference, unless you wanted to know who was playing in Maloe Melo earlier this month, but it was the first time I’ve phoned the printers and said “Stop the press!” Although Maloe Melo’s April gig list arrived a day after my deadline, I knew our printers could handle a late change, so I went for it. Half of the Stuns had already been printed, so they went round the bars on the Thursday evening. While I was delivering them, I got another gig for Molly Malone’s, a change to a small ad and a suggestion for rewording one of the captions. They all went in.

Maloe Melo’s gig list came out before my deadline this month, but with just two pages of Stun Gig-List this time, I could only include the first week of May. I’m not planning to make different versions every month... although I am missing a few dates in May for the Waterhole.

So, why is the gig-list shorter this month? I decided to include “The Stun Guide to Queen’s Day (& Night)” and didn’t want to drop any of our regular pages, or cut back on the pictures.  Besides, when this gig-list runs out on the 7th of May, there won’t be many Stuns left around the bars and you can see the full gig-list on the Stun website, where all the pictures are in glorious colour.

We’ve given a few suggestions of places to go on Queen’s Day & Night, but won’t be able to visit them all ourselves - haven’t got a clue what I’m going to do yet - but the camera will be out and about somewhere. If you would like to see some of your own Queen’s Day photos in the next Stun, send them in before Friday 9th May and I’ll print as many as I can.

Enjoy your Stun and have a good time on Queen’s Day & Night.
