So......this week we have a nice full line-up again.
Our weekly dose of acoustic pleasure will come from Abi in a rare solo performance. We also have two bands making their Unity debut: Moosejaw and Truth Will Out.
Our end of the night DJ will be Piper (Point Of Origin/Unity) playing his usual eclectic mish-mash of funk, hip-hop, reggae, blues, jazz, rock and anything that comes to hand.The start of the night will of course be the Unity Jam, bring your instruments and get involved, this is all about getting everybody up playing with everybody else. Also, bring any bongos and bits and pieces that can make noise - lets expand the jam off the stage and fill the building with music! When the jams over we can put anything you don't want to carry around for the night in the DJ booth for safe keeping so there's no excuses. As always entry will be free before 9:15 and £3 after and kick out time will be 2am. See you there. Don't forget we're always looking for more acts to put on, there are no limits on style or format so if you are interested in playing email us.
Other events this week. This Friday Point of Origin are returning to Fidds for the monthly session of fun. Alongside POO's dub-funk-hip-hop sploosh and noise will be The Modal Monks, Gerth and Beesch (acoustic) and there's still one act waiting to be confirmed so turn up and have a nice surprise - hopefully.
Two of our city's artists are in the great metropolis that is London this week:
Irene Rae is playing at Underbelly, Hoxton Square on Saturday. It's an 8pm start so leave plenty of time to get there. And Opaque are playing at The Brixton Telegraph on Sunday afternoon. They're hitting the stage at 3:30. Tickets for the gig are £5 and the band are taking a minibus that you can get on for £10 return. If you're interested email email@example.com
Saturday night in the boro it's the Indigo club night in Fidds, doors 9-2 and normal prices and drinks offers apply.
There's live music in Bogarts on Saturday too - Circus are playing and there's another band but I'm not gonna tell you who - you'll have to come a find out. Entry is free and live music will be from around 8 to around 11.
If you're after a more electronic flavour for your Saturday night System Abuse are in the Vibes Bar on Licoln Road with their usual dirty drum and bass, the new licence should have come into effect for it too, so it could go on as late (or early) as 7am! Doors open at 8pm and door tax is only £3.
A couple of bits and bobs on the Wake tip. The guys from the band would greatly appreciate your taking a few seconds to visit http://www.everythingandnothing.org.uk/music/distortedminds.php
They are in a competition that is based on votes placed on this site. Also on a slightly different note Wake have been publicising http://freecraigalden.com at their recent gigs. Craig is an English guy from the local area who is currently serving a 48 year prison sentence in Brazil after a case of rather dubious justice.
Goodbye, farewell, auf wiedersehn goodnight....
Hope to see you all in the ether soon,
Peace love and unity.
