Salford next Friday too. Listening to his boiler room set now - this is really good stuff...
Aargh, can't believe I only just found out that Mannequin Pussy are playing a London show, and now it's sold out DENIED.
Some awesome stuff happening in RSA right now EDM and dance wise. Saw a live performance of these guys with Brenda Mtambo. Maybe it was the Transkei weed but fuck me, what emotion. Whole house jumping.
Will check this out later - I love the DJ Lag stuff, never heard anything quite like it before. I think we're going to the Salford date (the other acts on sound great too).
RP Boo / DJ Lag / ZULI / Shannen SP [P13 present] at The White Hotel
oh, and this in London tomorrow looks amazing.
Should have said earlier this was f'ing great fun. Really uplifting gig went home with a big grin and only had the one pint.
Thanks for this May Kasahara. She was amazing When she first started singing I nearly cried it was so beautiful (the sound was great - local to me pub venue). And I spoke to her a little bit too when I bought the cd (she recommends beginning with the current and working backwards).
this in brum at the weekend looks amazing - the Sunday in particular seems incredible value at 20 quid
Off to see yer man tonight at the Phil.
That's just reminded me I quite like Christy Moore and there is another artist that I love cept can't remember his name cus I'm having a menopause moment. ...but he had his leg amputated and was a big drinker and one of his songs was 'When the wind blows' .....maybe... ahhhh! John Martyn!

FULL - Simple Things Festival
Unable to get into one venue to see Just Mustard so went to a different venue and saw W.H. Lung who were frigging amazing. ..
Next is :
Otha (very excited about this)
I'm loving this
I have a Sunday ticket. And yep amazing value.
Have a great time! I'd come but I've got a prior engagement...
Just been to an amazing jazz gig, Sara Dowling and band - serious, wonderful musicianship. Made me very happy.
I'm going to see Alasdair Roberts in Manchester tomorrow
Went to see Gruff Rhys at Yes in Manchester last night.
Crowd was absolutely shocking, constant mumble mumble throughout, some nob head bloke and his mates laughing and joking behind, a woman who thought it was ok to carry out a shouted conversation to be heard over the music during almost every song. Why would you pay £25 for something you're not interested in?
If the music is quiet enough that chat can distract you from it, the gig should be seated IMO. Standing shows in boozers are noisy, that's just the way it is.
Some noise is of course expected but an ongoing shouted conversation lasting most of the set is completely out of order
You been to the Talleyrand before? Nice little place. I would be going but I've got plans.
I have not - it's new isn't it? This is the first time I've even heard of it...
Alright we are missing November but in December we have another killer guest Oxman!
Probably going to this matinee show in Hebden a week Saturday - Bellies are a quality feminist post punk act from Bristol, EP/64 are a french/bristolian noise & shouting thing. Really good. Damage Residue seem to be a no-rehersals improv group made up of a musicians from various Golden Lab Records associated bands...
Missed this! How was it?
Really good ta. I liked the talleyrand, will keep an eye on it. Alastair Roberts was excellent as usual - he had the drummer from trembling bells and the viola player from woven skull playing in his band, which was tight as fuck. They even had an decent selection on brews...
Self-Esteem tonight, aaaaarrrggghhhh!
Sounds great, aye it's a good place. I live round the corner, nice having that kind of pub/venue on my doorstep.
I've ordered new ear plugs for Sunn O))) on Sunday.
Amazing wasn't it! Thanks to whoever put me onto them.
The fact that you could hear a pin drop when they did the acapella songs was very special. And I love the venue as it's so small!
ETA it was at Electric Brixton
