Greetings homo sapien fledgelings!
Happy solstice everybody - we begin the homerun to longer days, more sunshine and a festy filled summer as of today!
It's a very late mailout this week - was offline for quite a few days after the (massively successful) Grassroots charity event on Saturday. Big big thanks and respect to everybody who made it such a success - I think everybody's is feeling the inspiration flowing after that one. You can see pics taken by Mike da Hat at the unity blogspot he kindly keeps for us all at http://www.unityrocks.blogspot.com/ By the way, £426.07 was raised for Muslim Aid to help the victims of the South Asian Earthquake. If you would still like to make a donation you can do so at Unity this week and bring the total even higher.
So, this week:
Gonna be a special one for the Unity Community this week:Unity Jam (of course - bring your instruments and your bongos)Charlie Alexander (acoustic)Rebecca Clamp (acoustic)Piper da Sniper (solo keys set)Point of Origin (in full glory and with new stuff to play)Magic Lamp (boshing out live techno trance)....and the ever popular DJ tbc to finishA very full line-up and very diverse too! As always this will be free before 9:15 and £3 after and we won't tell you to go home till 2am. Other events
Friday is another night of live music in Fidds, everyone's favourite drummer Thorin is back with his band The Contrast. Support is coming from Portman and one other band (not sure of the name.....oops). Should be a good one.
Saturday is the Indigo club night Christmas Eve special too. Should be a fun night if you like that sort of thing.
I'm not aware of anything else going on over this Christmas weekend (so you'd best make the most of it and come to Unity!!!!) but there is stuff on the bank holidays after Christmas:
On the 27th (Tuesday) Throwdown is at the Met Lounge. This is Peterborough's biggest hip-hop event and should be a wicked night. Doors are 8 will 1am and door tax is £5 before 9:30 and £7 after. For a full line-up and flyer check this link http://system-abuse.co.uk/forum/index.php?s=dc3e8d16d4d0496f171faa1fb18327a0&showtopic=341
Also on the 27th The Park is hosting a two floor event with drum and bass crews Speed of Sound and Bass Camp are joining forces downstairs and Hard Dance specialists Atomic upstairs. Doors are 9:30 till 2am. Downstairs will cost you £3.50 before 10:30 and more after, and upstairs will cost you a fiver.
I don't know of anything else just yet, but next week we have the Juzzt at Unity (live ska/funk - yay!) and also on the 30th is the Unity Community's Nearly New Year's Eve Party - Opaque, James Chadwick, Point of Origin, Istari and DJ Urb blasting the ska and eclecticism. A good place to meet your friends and family before everyone scatters for their various New Years Eve Parties the day after.
Peace love and unity.
