Greetings stompers and loungers!
I hope you are all healthy and remaining positive and smiley in these days of shake up and global awakening.
Friday night's peace jam at the Glass Onion became a very eventful night of contrast and interesting mix-ups of peoples and ideas....just the way we like it. The rather less eventful Scorpio Party the next day was a little thin on the ground, but I'm sure that those that were there can verify we were privileged to have one of the most quality line-ups we've had the pleasure of bringing to the city yet! I guess people were too busy blowing up dolls representing ancient freedom fighters..... :)
So what a gwan this week?
If the Unity following's ears have finished ringing after the rather heavy and rather metal Halloween celebrations they'll probably be looking forward to something a little easier on the ears this week. And on the bill this time around at Lisboa (24 Lincoln Road) are three wicked local acts - mod-rockers The Waheys ( www.myspace.com/peterboroughsthewaheys ), Revenue, who were runners-up in the Solstice Battle of the Bands last year ( www.myspace.com/revenuerock ) and Charlie Alexander first up in the acoustic slot. As always the jam session will commence proceedings at the start of the night, and DJ Urb's eclectic mix will take us through to the early hours. Doors open 8pm and entrance costs £2 or £1 to Muddy members.
I wonder if the open mic session at the Glass Onion will be as interesting as last week's? Only one way to find out - entrance is free and music starts at 8pm (ish).
Meanwhile down the road in Lisboa Twilite Promotions are bringing a night of ska to the city, with Edinburgh's finest The Big Hand and Peterborough's finest The Gangsters on the stage live and ska Dj's throughout the night. Advance tickets can be purchased at Lisboa or from the promoter (mail for details) for £5, or on the door for £7.
Further afield boro bods Opaque are travelling to the big smoke that is London playing at The Clapham Grand. A minibus is going and will cost £12 return including entry (Moony asked me to clarify that that's entry to the gig - not anal entry, which is £5 extra).
This Saturday the Jellyfish crew are bringing Bish Bash Bosh back to Lisboa, with special guests Atomic running hard dance in the second room with the normal hardcore/drum & bass/techno/anything goes in the main room. Entrance is £4 and doors open at 9pm.
There's something special coming to the Glass Onion this Sunday night:
