A bit of Twisted Disco for Notts Pride…

Image of disco records and Angel pub, NottinghamAfter a rollicking Blackwoods Scouts’ beer fest session earlier this month, we’re made up to be back in spinning action on Saturday 30th July. This time we’re dropping some leftfield disco (and more) at the rebooted Angel Microbrewery, Hockley for Notts Pride ’16.

Image of Blackwoods Beer Festival flyer

Once again, we’re made up to be spinning tunes to soundtrack an afternoon of supping craft beers and cider at Blackwoods Scouts Group Annual Beer Festival on Saturday 9th July ’16.

We’ll be dropping a massive selection of tunage from 2pm to 8pm-ish. Expect all sorts of nuggets and plenty of sonic surprises too. The beer fest goes on until late that evening so hang around to watch the sunset and catch the evening’s entertainment. We’ll be posting more info on all that over at our Facebook page.

It’ll cost you just a few quid to walk in while kiddies get in for nought. That gets you a free beer fest glass to sip your ale from too. Bargain. All profits go towards funding Blackwoods’ activities over the next year.

See ya’s there. Hope it’s proper sunny, people.

Join us saying goodbye to David Bowie…

Image of David Bowie and Mick Ronson

 

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.
