Have I missed this already?
Anyway mine are:
1. Go to more "specialist" gigs on my own. By "specialist" I mean gigs none of my mates want to go to, which I might previously have unhappily ignored to avoid going on my tod. By way of example, only one booked so far is Tim Hecker, and may do a bit of King Midas Sound too. For starters.
2. Not go to gigs of bands I've seen before (subject to numerous brilliant exceptions).
3. Not go to mediocre gigs to keep mates company.
4. Save money by not going to as many gigs.
