All change at Ibiza Rocks tonight as this week’s two gigs were rolled into one, with The Twang
and Dirty Pretty Things sharing headline at the new venue enforced by the last minute antics of the San Antonio authorities.

We’ve been relocated to an ex-zoo a few kilometres away in the hills at the back of nearby Ses Paisses. Because it’s a little hard to find Ibiza Rocks have laid on free coaches from their traditional home, at Bar M on the beach of San Antonio, but the message is equally traditional – the party will go on…

The local police turned up at 10:30 (maybe they got lost ?), by which time the gig was well underway, and imposed a fine on the promoter, Ibiza Rocks, but decided against trying to stop the show and invoking the wrath of the hundreds who had turned up to watch these two major indie bands of the
moment who, after all, had taken the trouble to come from the UK to entertain us all and brought an army of new tourists (their fans) with them.

Kaiser Chiefs and Arctic Monkeys will be at the same venue (not sure if we can say where yet).

All of those wishing, or already booked, to attend need only go to Bar M before the gig. From there they will be bused to the ‘secret’ venues.

It’s almost a breath of the sort of fresh air that we used to breathe at the hill parties not so many years ago…

One has to wonder what San Antonio are thinking…
