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.
Still buzzin’ from from our debut NottsVinylSocial night sesh. Big hugs to everyone who came out and helped make it a fab night.
Planning our next one for mid- November time. More info on that coming soon. And here’s the black wax that Chris and me dropped on Friday 11th September upstairs at the Lincolnshire Poacher…

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.
