In the City, 2010

Sunday, October 10th, 2010

I’m starting to get excited about this year’s in the city. The Fugitive Motel blog have a really good preview of some of the artists playing at this year’s festival. I’m having a listen to that now, and beginning to plan out which acts to catch.

I’m excited to have a delegate pass this year, courtesy of All FM and Ursula Pabish’s Monday drivetime show on the station.

As always, it’ll be a mad rush trying to fit in as many talks and bands as possible!

Playing the Yardbird, Birmingham, at 4pm today

Sunday, September 26th, 2010

The Free Love ClubHad a really good, busy week – including a trip to Go Ape yesterday, which is always good fun. We also went to check out Alt Country band Mt. Desolation, who played at the Deaf Institute last night. It was a well-attended show – impressive, because this is the band’s first tour. They’re made up of members from Keene, the Killers and Noah and the Wale. Though in actual fact, the touring band seemed to basically be the two frontmen from Keene, and some other assembled musicians. It was an enjoyable gig though.

This afternoon I’m playing at the Yard Bird in Birmingham. Doors open at 4pm, and I’m on at 4.30. It’ll be good to be doing an afternoon gig. The event is called the Free Love Club, and it runs from 4pm right through to midnight. You can get more details of the event at reverbnation and Facebook.

Myspace - Turn My Visitors On
I just logged into Myspace for the first time in ages, to see a message saying they’ve changed the privacy settings. Well, I suppose Facebook did that recently, so they’ve had to follow suit…. Anyway, so I clicked through to check the settings. This takes you to a load of options. The first is a tickbox which asks me whether I want to “Turn my visitors on”. It’s ticked at the moment.

All Fm radio show on Monday night

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

We’re presenting another Unsigned Show from 11pm-1am on Monday night. You can listen on 96.9FM in the Manchester area and on allfm.org

We have live sessions from Sam and the Bathroom Crooners, plus We are Willow – who are made up of Chris Butler from Butler Williams, and Kathryn Edwards.

So it’s going to be a great night of live music, and we’ll be fitting in as many of the best unsigned tracks as we can too…

Ripon Beer Festival 2010

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

I really enjoyed playing the Ripon Beer Festival on Monday. Just heard from the organisers that they raised a total of £6,068.00, which is great news. There was some really good music — and lots of great beer. Enjoyed going out for a quick curry afterwards with the Roosters before rushing back to do the All FM Unsigned show in Manchester!

Next year’s beer festival is Monday, 2nd May 2011…

Baa Bar on Tuesday

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

Hello! There’s an exciting gig at Baa Bar, Fallowfield on Tuesday. It’s being put on by Silent Sara, in aid of the Red Cross.

The lineup is looking really good – it features seven acts, including Karima Francis, Kristyna Myles, Glyn Bailey, Robin Mukherjee, Risa Hall and Pavor Nocturnus. I’ll be playing a couple of songs too.

I think entry is by donation, 3 or 4 quid. Should be a really nice night. Things kick off promptly at 8pm…

Recommended gigs this week

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

Hi everyone,

Tonight there’s a free gig at Oddest, Chorlton, featuring John Herring, Kamal Arafa and John Lowndes. The night starts at 8.30 and it’s being put on by With A Little Help, to raise money for the Nordoff-Robins music therapy charity. It’s a completely free gig, but donations are welcome.

On Monday, we have the usual open mic night at Trof in the Northern Quarter, starting from 8pm – just turn up around then if you’d like to play.

And on Tuesday, it’s the brand new open mic at the Bay Horse, beginning 8.30pm — that’s in the downstairs bar.
