Heads up everyone, I’m about to go on holiday to Japan for the next two weeks. Bad news is I won’t be able to update the blog until maybe the 3rd week of April. The good news is I’ll be going to see Saitama Slam at Kasukabe Hall on the 2nd. I’ll hopefully have a good report written up for that show and my experience of it.
