Like you, we were saddened and shocked to hear of David Bowie’s recent death. For once, the overwhelming outpouring of emotion was truly justified.
As NottsVinylSocial (with our pal Chris), we want to celebrate Bowie’s music and the massive impact he’s had on popular culture.
So we’re putting on a special “Bowie Night” upstairs at Lincolnshire Poacher, Mansfield Road, Notts on Friday 5th February. We will be playing his game changer LP, Ziggy Stardust, plus a choice selection of cuts by Bowie, his own influences and artists he’s influenced over the years.
We’d love you to join us to talk Bowie, enjoy his music and say goodbye to one of the biggest musical icons of the last 50 years.
Tunes start at 8.30pm and it’ll cost you nought to walk in. See you there.
After a smokin’ afternoon session in November, we finally take on the evening shift at Rough Trade Nottingham for the first time on Friday 26th February. We’ll be spinning a carefully curated selection of new wave and post punk cuts from 7 ’til 11pm. Expect tunes you know and some you won’t. All on black wax. And there may be dancing too. See you there.
Not forgetting the cuts we dropped on Tuesday 29th December at Rough Trade. Proper slow beats vibe. Thanks to everyone who dug the tunes and chatted. Nice one, people:

What now? The Lord Roberts as we know it shuts on 30th September. Many thanks to Shaun and his pub crew for looking after us this last six months. We’ll try to find a new home for our DirtyDiscoSoundsystem parties so hopefully we’ll be back spinning early 2016.
Don’t forget – we’ve got a Saturday afternoon black wax residency thing happening at Rough Trade Nottingham. Our next sesh’s on 24th October then 28th November. Always fun spinning vinyl. Pop in to say hello, why doncha.

Sad news but we knew it was coming. The Lord Roberts Pub will be shutting its doors on 30th September for what could be a long time. Current manager Shaun and his crew will be leaving for good then too.
A new owner will take control eventually but the boozer’s friendly and open-minded vibe will be gone when the doors shut that last time. This is down to the pub’s landlord. Shaun’s tried to work something out to keep The Lord Roberts running as it is now but they refused.
We’ll soon be looking for a new home for our parties. But we’re still having our early autumn #DirtyDiscoJamm party downstairs on The Lord Roberts’ final weekend. But we want it to be a night to remember so we won’t be charging you to get in. Cost ya’s zip so more cash for tipples. May chuck in some balloons too.
We really hope you can join us on Saturday 26th September for a boogie in the “disco” basement to help celebrate Shaun and his crew’s last few days plus say a sad goodbye too.
Bit impulsive we know but we’ve set up a record listening club with our mate, Chris, and will be spinning Massive Attack’s “Blue Lines” on our first night plus cuts taking in the Bristol scene and much more. Connections, influences and fab stuff we think will keep the NottsVinylSocial vibe going.
We’ll be upstairs at the Lincolnshire Poacher, Mansfield Road. 8pm ’til late-ish. £2 door tax. Should be fun. Get the lowdown here, facebook.com/nottsvinylsocial and twitter.com/nottsocialvinyl.
Bank holiday weekend init, so we’re made up to be spinnin’ sweet disco ‘n classic pop tunes at The Lord Roberts this Saturday night from 9pm-ish.
Just after our all-vinyl Beats ‘n Treats session at Rough Trade Nottingham. Gonna a frisky day, alright.
We’ll be in the main bar space. Nice change. So don’t forget to say hello on your way to grab a tipple. Be nice to see you.
My goodness! What a Notts Pride after-party that was! Big hugs to Shaun and The Lord Roberts Pub crew for making it such a great night. Lots of bopping ‘n happy people.
New mixtape time too! One of a few we did for The Lord Roberts Pub crew for their after-party knees up to make up for our DJ slot no-show. Boogie shoes are still optional.
We’re also made up to be spinning black wax again at Rough Trade Nottingham on Saturday 29th August! Beats ‘n treats session between 3 and 7pm.
We’ll be doing a vinyl-only set pulling in nuggets that lean towards beats, disco and electronica with a few surprises thrown in too. Pop in why doncha. Be nice to see ya.
