If only we had more time…

What did we miss? Far too much. With so many things we wanted to see and so little time, we built up quite a backlog of things we wanted to see but just didn’t have enough time in the day for. 15 shows in three days was a pretty good attempt for one Ginger Wig member. However, had we had all three of us, we could have managed 45 shows.

So what did we miss? What do we wish we could have stopped time for? And, what from our list can you still see? Here is our list of 20 shows, in no particular order that we wish we could have seen! So if you’re still there, go along to one of these shows and let us know what you thought.
