I think you are correct, as the object noun of the statement is "gigs." One would say "The gigs do not appear to be convenient for me," and not "The gigs does not appear to be convenient for me."

But what does I know?


grin grin grin You're a "maths" person!


Hang on, so am I! undecided huh

Just returned from the Aimee Mann show. An overwhelming and very moving show. As it took place in a church, the sound was tremendous. I don`t remember. when I last saw a concert with such fantastic sound.

I love Aimee. I wouldn't have thought her to be very religious though. wink

That always struck me as funny. We say "math"... I never heard it referred to as "maths" until I came here!

Well there you go Dust wink

As "maths" is the correct English (which we all speak) you know how to use it from now on wink

"Maths" is short for "Mathematics" - plural wink

No-one studies "Mathematic"

Not exactly a concert, but I am attending an "Up Close and Personal" interview and Q&A with Lady Gaga on Monday. Should be interesting if nothing else.

Oh, I forgot to mention, I just went to see Bruce Hornsby at Koerner Hall in Toronto. I had never seen him live before.

It was a great performance. It was just him, solo on a piano. He is a very spontaneous performer, who improvises wildly and will veer off in unexpected directions as his muse take him. Although he played many of his better known songs, they were usually rearranged, often radically. The Valley Road had a rolling, bluesy feel. Mandolin Rain was in a minor key and had a completely different melody.

Solos during songs included jarring 12-tone sequences, excerpts from a variety of modern composers, even a bit of Glenn Gould's rendition of Bach. He took requests, sometimes playing songs he had never played before solo on piano.

It was all fresh and completely unexpected. It was not the concert for people who wanted to hear faithful versions of the old hits. But it was great for people with very wide tastes in music and willing to go on an adventure with a talented artist.
