Latest Ramsgate Hovercraft gig at Ramsgate Music Hall
Another amazing night at Ramsgate Music Hall with The Ramsgate Hovercraft AND Acid Mothers Temple on the bill. The Hovercraft’s set included new material played in public for the first time, and was received enthusiastically by the capacity crowd. Acid Mothers Temple wowed the crowd with an hour and a half of the full-on psychedelic rock they’re justly famous for. Afterwards we greeted old friends, made new ones and sold albums. It’s a great venue for bands and audiences.
