Yea I'm up for that
Also at the Manchester International Festival, I went to this incredible show last night, that features new music by Philip Glass. Just the most wonderful thing I've seen in ages - on until the weekend and bizarrely not sold out, so if you're up north and free I'd strongly recommend it.

I still hate the Jazz Cafe but this was great. First time I saw a trombone player get a rewind.
San Francisco Girls Chorus
Back at Cafe OTO.
Did you go mate?....I was feeling shit the last few days so I've been resting up.
Yeah, it was great - definitely go see them when you get the chance.
Nile Rodgers & Chic at the Liverpool International Music Festival in Sefton Park tomorrow. Only £11 in
crikey, that's tempting.
the rest of the lineup is pretty foul mind. De La Soul on Sunday too...
Yeah the rest of the lineup is crap but £11 for Nile Rodgers is a steal.
free noisy show in Bristol this weekend, Gnod headlining but the other stuff looks good too...
Spoiled for choice tonight. Qujaku - Japanese psych rock or whatever it's called or heckle sold out Billy Bragg through the wall of the adjoining bar.
Qujaku were very good and are playing at new river studios in London tomorrow.
Richard Dawson doing some dates in November. New song is cracking.
Marylin Manson doin' his thing.
tempted with this one (presume he's touring) - the Arthur Russell covers album is fab.
Some lovely freeness in SE5.
Pole this Friday. Kevin Martin solo gig next Friday.
Chronixx in Manchester tomorrow night
I have two weekends without children and nowhere to go dance. Anything good on in London? A host of great names from Detroit playing one of the weekends but at some venue called The Hydra that looks hideous.
The venue is Printworks, an old newspaper factory.
Been there for one of their previous events and really liked it as there was plently of space and different areas to move around in. It is not intimate.
It's very expensive. And the day I'm most interested, the Sunday which does look amazing, is when my kids come home unfortunately. I'm not sure model 500 and Terrence Dixon live can get me to a huge rave on a Saturday night these days. I would have braved it for Larry Heard live, Carl Craig, Theo Parrish, etc
Ah shame. I’m going on the Sunday. It is an amazing line up.
Larry Heard live is pretty amazing. If only there was a way to know what time everyone was playing. I could go in the day til about 6.30.
Trad, gras och stenar are playing london in september (supporting thee oh sees bizarrely. Should be a good show tho!)
Julia Jacklin at the Forum in December
Electric Six at The Ritz in Manchester in November the night before I fly out for a cruise. Oops.
Got a ticket for The Murder Capital based on my mates 'best live band ever' assessment. She has a tendency to do this every so often.
I do like a few of their tunes though and given Lamacq and 6music seem to have them in their sights they could be hard to see in a small venue after this tour.
danski , thanks! I actually bought a ticket but I'm not sure now as I will have to leave by 6.30. I guess I'll still get to dance to Moodyman. I also bought an in by 2pm ticket to make it cheaper so I'll hear the early acts, whom I don't know. And I suppose I'll get to hear a bit of Carl Craig, who I've not heard in years. But Larry Heard live is the greatest
