    Veryan Weston
    Zeena Parkins

    This is the one to be had.

    Wonderful to see Sally Potter in there as well, although I'd expected nothing less.

    Would LOVE to see this. Best wishes that the event becomes sold-out.

    I'm not up on my currency conversion...but those look like some very reasonable ticket prices. So yeah, I hope it is a very successful gig and an excellent tribute to Ms. Cooper.

    Very sad that it took Lindsay dying to have Cow reform, but also really nice that they are doing it for such a good reason.

    Sadly also missing (from the Oh Moscow band): Hugh Hopper.

    What does suck are the ticket prices to Europe from the states....we are thinking about a family trip to the UK sometime next year and round-trip tix seem to be hovering around $1k right now.

    Holy Cow!

    As soon as the tickets are on sale, I am going to fetch one and book the flight. What a surprise!

    Sadly this one isn't in the cards for me; it is too close to the Thanksgiving holiday and I am already going to be traveling. But yeah, I feel for anyone who forks over the coin for an overseas flight (especially a family-size set of bookings!).

    Got the ok from the wife to make the round trip between her birthday (16th) and Thanksgiving (27th), will be damned expensive but what the hell you only live once & its this gig or never. I hope it doesn't sell out before I get through for tickets, 5am is a bit early to jump online and order.

    Ones hopes it will be professionally recorded and videotaped for those of us who cannot attend. It would also help earn some more coin for the cause.

    my best guess (and this is only a guess)

    The Cow portion will be relatively small, since (I assume) (a) they will concentrate on Linday's 20' of compositions for the Cow and (b) they don't want to have to relearn all that hard stuff that they haven't played in 35 years and, in some cases, on instruments that they don't play any more (Tim hasn't played keyboards on stage to the best of my memory since Cow - it's all been clarinet and flat guitar and electronics and stuff).

    well, I'm not going, but someone please report back here in November and let me know how wrong I was!

    Great news, too bad it's way too far away for me to even dream of attending! A professional recording would be nice; I'd buy it!
    Check out Colouratura's sophomore release Unfamiliar Skies - out this spring on Melodic Revolution Records!

    I was lucky enough to meet Lindsay while working at Wave studio London in 1985
    She was very kind and patient with my nerdy fanboy enthusiasm and quite amazed to find out she had fans in the middle east
    and later to have witnessed The Film Group Live - unforgettable!

    I saw Comicoperando: The Music of Robert Wyatt with some of the same musicians a few years ago and it was absolutely wonderful. I'm sure this is going to be even wonderfuller! Thanks for posting this. I know where I'm going to be in November!

    It's been thirteen years since my last visit to London - Christ, it was two marriages back!

    Looks as though I might have to return for this. I can hardly think of a better occasion, and the city's pretty nice at that time of year, with early winter coming on.

    Amen to that!
