Greetings snow flurries and wintry showers!
The days are still getting shorter, and colder....but it's nearly solstice-time and then we can start the home run back towards summer fun and warmth! In the meantime things are going to get busy with Xmas and New Year just around the corner.
Let's have a look at what's on this week to distract you from the consumerist frenzy that is Xmas shopping.
As always if you would like to unsubscribe to this mail please reply "unsubscribe" thanks.
Wednesday nights is time for the weekly pixie folke open mic session at Lisboa (24 Lincoln Road) Doors open 9pm till late and entrance is free.
Unity as Lisboa has the pleasure of hosting to young rock bands this week, Cambridge based punk rockers Blankit and young all-female boro band The Playful Rays. The jam session will start proceedings as always at 8pm and kick out is in the early hours after DJ Urb falls over from exhaustion (not likely). Entrance is £2 or £1 to Muddy members.
Or if you are in Stamford direction for the night check out Irene Rae at the Mi Familia Tapas Bar, where music starts at 9pm and entrance is free.
Or if you want to venture even further afield check out Opaque at Insomnia in Derby. Email email@example.com for more details.
The Glass Onion's acoustic night has the pleasure of having the wonderful Irene Rae (back on the scene after a few health problems - good to have you back around Ren). It's also an open mic session for the rest of the night so come along and bring your instruments and music!
Down the road in Bogarts local funkateers Point of Origin have their first Peterborough appearance after a long break due to bods being away at University - entrance is free and music starts at 9:30pm ish.....and there've been no rehearsals since September so if you want to see the band scared as f*ck this is your chance... :)
For an electronic tip Funktional return to Lisboa this Friday for another session of funky house. Door times are 9pm till 3am and entrance is £3. DJ Clark Fader is in da house for a hip-hop turntablist session this time around too! Booyah!
Around the corner in the Brewery Tap, Jules the DJ is bringing a Xmas Disco..... (I can't quite get over the naming of this one......reminds me a little bit too much of school.....sorry Jules!)
After the success of their first party Psychedelic Breakdown are back with something bigger, longer and phatter (this sounds far too rude at this point). For the first time Lisboa has an extended licence allowing this party to run from 11pm till 7am!!!! Both floors of Lisboa will be open, decked out with copious amounts of UV decor (courtesy of Indigo Children, Mel Playskool and the Twit Twoo lovelies), and kitted with digital visuals. Music upstairs will be psy-trance and breaks, including on the line-up Craig H (from Point Red Records - the new breaks sub-label of Alchemy Records) and Jimmy Tango (hero of the East Anglian psychedelic scene). Downstairs will be deep house, minimal techno, dub and chill. Hot drinks and snacks will be available downstairs to keep you going too. Entrance is a mere snip at a fiver each - don't miss out.
And if you can't wait for all that fun, the pre-party for Psychedelic Breakdown will be taking place at The Glass Onion from 7pm till 11pm - with psy-chill from Bidbod and progressive psy-trance from Kendo. Entrance is free.
For a live band alternative the Brewery Tap is hosting the Brown Stripes.Entrance is free before 10pm.
Or at a bigger distance you will find Opaque at Night and Day in Manchester. Email opaque_moony @ hotmail.com for more info.
At the Glass Onion you will find a Xmas Craft Fair taking place on Sunday.
...until next time....
Peace love unity and respect.
