Hello there. I just thought you might like to know about two gigs I've got coming up next weekend.
The first is a DJ set I'll be doing with the Dirty Water Club's Arthur Scott at the "Well Versed" event as part of the Stoke Newington Literary Festival on Saturday 7th June. You can expect the usual mix of sixties garage pop, soul, funk and other oddments besides, but perhaps more importantly the featured poetry acts will be:
Phill Jupitus + Tim Wells + Niall O’Sullivan + Chimene Sulyeman + Bob Constant + Lucy Ayrton + Sam Berkson + Chris Coltrane + Captain of the Rant + Paul McGrane + Lisa Kelly + Emma Jones
We'll be at Mascara Bar, kicking off at 8pm and with DJs until 3am. There's also another full day's Well Versifying ahead of the Saturday gig, with full details available on their Facebook event page if you're interested.
But then I'll also be putting in an appearance at the Garden of Abandon on Sunday afternoon (8th June, Olden Garden, Whistler Street in association with the Chelsea Fringe) from 2pm. Also there will be:
PAUL VAN GELDER
THE BUNDY BOYS
JAZZMAN JOHN CLARKE
Again, the relevant Facebook invite is here. I look forward to seeing some of you at both events.
