DOUGIE ANDERSON GUEST DJS ON SAT 9TH JUNE

Our next club night is on Saturday 9th June at The Albany and guest DJing is Dougie Anderson!

You’ll know Dougie from 5 Live’s Fighting Talk as well as his numerous TV appearences. He’s a regular at the club and a former resident DJ at Madame Jo Jo’s so you can expect his unique take on indiepop, post-punk, new wave and everything in between.

You can watch him present the Belle and Sebastian film for Write About Love. The film features the band performing “I Want the World to Stop” and “I Didn’t See It Coming”.

If you have any requests you can post them on the Facebook event page. It would be great if you could share the event and invite your friends along.

The last time Dougie DJed for us it was at out our Scottish Special. You can listen to what he played on Spotify for free as a taster for this night.
