BALLBOY GUEST DJ ON SAT 8TH JUNE

Our next night is happening on Saturday 8th June and our guest DJ is Gordon McIntyre from Ballboy!

We’ve been big fans of Ballboy for many years and we’ve finally got Gordon to come down and do a set for us. Helping him out on the decks is Katey Lee from the Music For Girls club night.

There’s a Facebook event which you can join and invite your friends along to. If you have any song requests then feel free to post them on there!

Doors open at 10pm at the Moustache Bar. We tend to fill up pretty quickly so head down early to guarantee entry. To get in on the cheaplist, please see the membership section on our site.

Gordon is performing at Union Chapel during the day along with A Little Orchestra, Model Village and The Wonderful Sound of the Cinema Organ. It’s a very early gig running from 12-2:15pm and it’s free to get in.

If you’re going to the Odd Box All Dayer you can get into this night for just £3 with an Odd Box handstamp. It’s just a short walk down the road to the Moustache Bar from Power Lunches.

SCARED TO DANCE PODCAST #20

Today sees the release of our May podcast! It’s a playlist put together by our guest DJs at our Swedish Special next weekend, Jenny Brinck and Ylwa Wirling.

It’s a 20 track compilation featuring songs from Sambassadeur, Vit Päls, Pushy Parents, Jens Lekman, Those Dancing Days, David & the Citizens, Suburban Kids With Biblical Names, Springfactory, Honey Is Cool, First Floor Power, Makthaverskan, The Knife, Club 8, Taken By Trees, bob hund, Frida Hyvönen, Acid House Kings, El Perro del Mar, Alpaca Sports and The Radio Dept.

It was incredibly difficult putting this together as we had to leave off a few artists that we love. Hopefully it should give you a good idea of the sort of bands that we’ll be playing at the Moustache Bar.
