- The venue - Sneaky Pete's is a small nightclub on Cowgate, along a row of club venues (Opium, Movement, Cowgatehead etc), close to the Cowgate entrance to Underbelly.

- The performance area - Good stage, fairly high with good sightlines, but no backstage at all.

- The team of staff at the venue - Staff were great. Helpful as you could hope for.

- How you advertised your show - Flyers, posters, word of mouth. Some posters in the venue too..

- How your shows went in terms of audience numbers - Same as Patrick! "Can't complain at all numbers-wise. They were good throughout (a little quiet on the last week), but every Friday and Saturday was rammed. It's in a busy part of the city, so it's always possible to entice an audience during the 15 mins before the show."

- Your show itself - Same old same old.

- Buckets - Averaged £3-4ph. Ask for more.

- Technical set-up at the venue - The technical set-up is brilliant. The onstage mixing desk allowed me to plug sound into the main venue PA (which included onstage monitors that allow you to perfect the mix/levels). Lighting a little more complicated, but I didn't have any cues, so no worries.

- Admin & Communication process - Great communication.

- Any other learning points for anyone involved - No storage at the venue. Needs daily top-up of Wee Blue Books.Cowgate is excellent for flyering, but discriminate and you'll do better.
