David DJed for us a year ago and played a stunning selection of 60s and 70s hits and rarities from the likes of Dylan, Little Richard, Lou Reed, New York Dolls and Chuck Berry.
The last two club nights have sold out so please get there early to ensure guaranteed entry. Expect the finest in indiepop, post-punk and new wave you’ll hear in London.
Our last club night of 2011 is on Saturday at The Albany. So what better time to play some indiepop Christmas songs and have the fabulous Veronica Falls guest DJ.
Check out the excellent Veronica Falls mixtape over on Stereogum.
Plus listen to our Christmas podcast on Mixcloud to get you ready for Saturday night.
You can get into the club for just £3 by becoming a member. Simply email us with your full name and we’ll have a membership card for you to pick up at the club. You can apply for your friends too.
If you have any requests, please post them on the Facebook event and I’ll play as many as I can across the evening.
The third Scared To Dance podcast is now available to listen to for free on Mixcloud. I’ve put together my favourite indie Christmas songs for you to enjoy over the holidays.
The podcast features festive songs from Low, Eux Autres, Bright Eyes, Sufjan Stevens, Richard Hawley, Camera Obscura, Slow Club, a Peel Session track by Belle and Sebastian and many more.
I’ll be playing a few of these at the club on Saturday night at our Christmas party. All the details can be found on Facebook.
We’ll be DJing at David Tattersall’s gig at Brixton Windmill tonight. It’s the Christmas party for the folks at Stroke Your Beard so we’re sure it’ll be quite a night.
Support comes from Dan of Green Gables, Milkwood and the excellent Jack Hayter. We’ll be DJing with David and Franic from The Wave Pictures after the bands until the early hours so come and celebrate with us.
There are a few tickets left on WeGotTickets.
We’ve been fans of the band since they burst onto the scene with “Beachy Head” and “Found Love in a Graveyard”. One of the standout bands in London at the moment, we’ve no doubt their debut LP will be in everyone’s end of year lists.
The night runs from 9pm to 2am and entry is £3 for members and £5 for non-members. If you have any requests simply post them on Facebook event.
