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.
We had another ace time spinning black wax at Rough Trade, Nottingham on 19th March. Nods to everyone who popped by and said hello. Hugs to big Kyle and his crew for having us. Hoping to do another Saturday afternoon sesh soon.
Not forgetting our next Post Punk Disco night at Rough Trade on Friday 29th April too. And we’ll be DJ’g there as part of their Record Store Day ’16 celebrations on Saturday 16th April as well. More info to come on that one, folks…

Crackin’ night. Big shout out to everyone who bopped ’n boozed with us at The Lord Roberts. Good to see you. Even bigger hugs to our DirtyDiscoJamm hardcore who just keep coming back for more. Appreciate your support, people. Honestly.
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.

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.
We’re truly gutted to say this but our #PrideJamm after-party at The Lord Roberts on Saturday 25th July has been cancelled due to health and safety concerns on punter numbers from Nottingham City Council licensing people. Nice of them.
They’ve instructed Shaun and his pub crew to rigidly cap people numbers during their day long Nottinghamshire Pride celebrations. And they’ve killed our after-party DJ slot too. We’ve tried to address all their concerns but they’re just not budging.
So what does this now mean? The Lord Roberts is still a fab place to celebrate Notts Pride on Saturday but we won’t be spinning tunes to give it a celebratory disco party vibe.
We’re trying to sort a post-Pride party there in the near future to make up for it. We’ll keep you posted on that one.
Before then, do have a bleedin’ good time on Saturday if you’re joining in the Notts Pride fun. And don’t forget to say hello if you see us having a few cheeky beers at The Lord Roberts that night…
We had another crackin’ time spinning black wax at Rough Trade Nottingham, Saturday 11th July.
