Blackwoods Beer Festival time again…

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.

DirtyDiscoSoundsystem goes post-punk. Again.

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.

Image of outside of Rough Trade records, Nottingham

We’re finally popping our Rough Trade DJ slot cherry in their upstairs cafe at their gaff along Broad Street from 3pm ’til 7pm on Sat. 30th May.

Vinyl-only set pulling in all sorts of fine nuggets. Cafe’s a nice chilled space and kiddies are very welcome too. Been ages since we played out with some black wax so we’re well up for it.

Hoping it’ll be the first of a few slots over the coming months.

Be fab to see you if you’re in town that day.
