Facebook, and an event tomorrow

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

Hi all you Facebookers! I’ve begun addiing notes from my blog directly onto Facebook… so if you just saw a load of notes from me in your news streams, then that’s why!

On another note – I’ve just created a Facebook Musician Page. More info will be added on that soon.

And finally – I’m running an event tomorrow (Thursday) at St. Ninian’s church in Chorlton. We have five excellent bands playing: To Sophia, Sam and the Plants, Pablo’s Finest Hour, Kamal Arafa and Butler Williams. It starts at 7.30pm and is £4 on the door.

Sunflower Lounge gig on 2nd November

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

Hey! I’m playing the lovely Sunflower Sessions night, at the Sunflower Lounge (just down the road from Birmingham New Street Station) on Sunday, November 2nd. It’s £1 in, if I remember rightly, and should be a really nice night of acoustic music. You can catch live sessions by:

Tom Kerswill
Alex Harmon
Harlem Dandy
Marcus Bonfanti
Tim Allen

I’ve just received my new EP back from being mastered, which is quite exciting… Hopefully if it’s ready by 2nd November, I’ll have a few copies of it with me!

Cheers

Exeter / Phoenix

Sunday, July 6th, 2008

Having a good time down in Exeter. Last night went to the Exeter Phoenix arts centre to check out the originally Totnes-based cabaret phenomenom which is Wondermentalist. It was a great evening, full of a variety of weird and wonderful acts, mostly performance-poetry related. Highly recommended!

I’m playing at the Exeter Phoenix this afternoon from 1.30pm, in the terrace / cafe area, as part of the Exeter Respect festival. It’s also going out on 106.8 FM in the Exeter and www.phonic.fm worldwide… The event is free.

See you later,
