Don’t leave your fellow Planet Rock listeners out this summer. If you’re getting bored of the classic dinner date, and have found yourself going to the same restaurants, ordering the same food and having the same conversations, then why not shake things up a little? Admit it - you’ve been living in your hometown for a while now and you still don’t know where the museum is, you still haven’t climbed the church spire and you still haven’t visited that major tourist attraction that you tell all your friends about!
Open up your local paper and turn to the gig listings, shut your eyes and pick one.
