Friday hangover part III (apparently it was my idea to start adding Jaeger into the mix in the early hours of this morning), and it’s all thanks to our good friends Lunar, who brought the mighty Blawan to The Nest (Moby‘s playing there on Saturday) last night with Goulcher and Waylayers. This is going to be a monthly night so we’ll post the details for the next one and you can come and join us.
For hair-of-the-dog healing there’s an impressive array of nightclubbing around the capital this weekend, starting with That Mixmag Thing’s first birthday tonight at The Queen of Hoxton, with Layo and Bushwaka! In Flagranti and Julio Bashmore. For FREEEEEE.
Tomorrow there’s an ultra trendy Love Fever party at Shoreditch Studios, and Fake Blood, Boy 8-Bit and Bowski play at XOYO for Bugged Out, which, needless to say, is going to be BIIIIIIG. Mulletover celebrate their 7th birthday by doing what they do best; a great big dirty rave at the Great Suffolk Street warehouse. Get Physical take over Fabric, with their all-stars Catz n Dogz, Heidi and M.A.N.D.Y. BUT what excites me the most, is the re-launch of Steve Lawler‘s Harlem Nights, moved of course from it’s old home The End to 7 – 9 Crucifix Lane (what was the excellent Counter Culture, great venue). Whoop!
Put on your dancing shoes we’re going to the disco.
It’s a busy week for music submissions too – UNKLE have their new EP Only the Lonely out on Monday, SebastiAn released the first single Embody from his album Total, which I can’t wait for, out in May on Ed Banger, and Holy Ghost! gave us single Wait and See as a taster of their self-titled album, out on Tuesday on DFA. Bibio‘s much-awaited sixth album Mind Bokeh is out on Warp records on Monday, and you can hear single Excuses here.
