We’re made up to be having our fourth (!) Post Punk Disco session at Rough Trade Nottingham on Friday 14th October in the upstairs bar. 
 
Like our other instalments, we’ll be spinning a carefully curated selection of post punk, new wave and some choice connecting nuggets in between. All on black wax. Tunes drop from 7 ’til 11pm. And there should be dancing too. See you then.

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. 

We’ve got the 6 ’til 9pm slot in the downstairs bar. Sweet one, we reckon. The Notts Pride party will be in full flow and the sun should be setting as we hand over the dex over. Lovely.

Come join us – ya know ya wanna…

Keep it #BeatsnTreats…
