Greetings in the times of the heatings!
What a week we've got ahead of us!!!!!!! Check this out!
This week's Unity has got to be the most diverse line-up yet:
The Jam will of course kick us off with good vibes and lots of laughs. More bongos please people!
James Chadwick is one of the country's finest acoustic performers. This will be his first local gig since playing to a crowd of 1700 as one of only 6 finalists in BBC Radio 2's Young Folk Musician of the Year competition. If you've not seen James play before prepare to be wowed!
Jam Blin' are a reggae outfit visiting from Guildford for the week. Chilled out dropped out dubs will abound and groove you towards inner peace....or something like that.
The Superpenetraitors are a very different act to have on the Unity line-up, expect very tongue-in-cheek death metal coming with a side serving of rock and roll cliches and piss taking. I'm intrigued to see this live show.
Our DJ's for the week are Playskool's psy-trance man Instinct who'll be leaving the trance alone for the night in favour of mashing up random eclecticism, and Mad Man Manton who'll finish the night in style with chilled out dubs and psychedelic grooves.
Also, don't forget to keep an eye on the Unity blogspot:
As always Unity will be held at Fidds and will be free before 9:15 and only £3 after. Kick out time is 2am.
Opaque are playing with indie wonders Dear Old Blighty in the Man on the Moon in Cambridge. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
This Friday underground electronic heads Playskool are returning to the Fidds. The Playskool boys will bring you the normal wide range of styles taking in House, Nu-skool Breaks, Psy-Trance, Hard Trance & Psychedelic Hardcore. Last time at Fidds was a brilliant vibe, don't miss this beat-heads!
It's finally here......!
The huge huge event at The Crown, Lincoln Road lands this Saturday.
It's the Grassroots Action Day, organised by the team who will bring you the Grassroots Festy next year and all about raising money and awareness for the victims of the South Asian Earthquake. Entrance is by voluntary donation and all money taken at the door and from the fundraising games planned in the pub will go to Muslim Aid.
This event will run to a massive 13.5 hours!!!!!!
Doors open at 12:30 and you won't be getting kicked out till 2am.
The line-up is looking like this:
Yo Yeti (acoustic)
John Doe (band)
Istari (acoustic - aka Abi/Rich)
One Lost the Other (acoustic - two members of Sidearm btw)

Decor is being provided by the Muddy Arts team and there will be food all day kindly provided by people from the Gladstone Community Group. All food proceeds will also go to Muslim Aid.
There will also be awareness raising stuff going on all day and this will also be your first chance to buy membership of Muddy Promotions. Due to the nature of the licence being applied for it is very unlikely that any non-members of Muddy Promotions will be able to get tickets for the Festy - and membership will get you instantaneous discount entry to all future Muddy Promotions events. For more info have a word with the bods on the Muddy Promotions Stall.
Keep the victims of natural disasters in mind - they are our extended family overseas.
We hope you are all happy and well and hope to see you all for a long weekend of smiles a laughter.
Peace love and unity.
