Today, our friends over at Gobshout.com are launching a world record attempt that will see one of their writers go to the most gigs in one week EVER! Or at least it will if he make it to 16 shows in 7 day without ending up like this bloke who dared to try to listen to the whole of Kate Nash’s album in one sitting.

Today, our friends over at Gobshout.com are launching a world record attempt that will see one of their writers go to the most gigs in one week EVER! Or at least it will if he make it to 16 shows in 7 day without ending up like this bloke who dared to try to listen to the whole of Kate Nash’s new album in one sitting.

For the uninitiated, Gobshout is something like Myspace for new music writers and photographers, where you can login to your profile and contribute to the site’s content, making it far more worthwhile than most blogs.

Chris Barrett is the Gobshouter taking up this stupid challenge, and if you’re thinking, ‘why doesn’t ‘ol Barret just choose gigs with 4 bands on a night and take 3 nights off?’, it’s because that’s pretty much the only rule he can’t break. To successfully complete the challenge he must watch the whole set of a band and then not watch another set in that venue that night.

This is how Chris’ week looks so if you’re looking for him at any of these shows, just look for the man who seems to hate music the most.
