Fraserhead at the controls today with classics from Nina Simone and Louis Prima bookending the show, and in between heaps of local produce in the form of Motte, Haan-808, Jagā, the sounds of the Crooked Lidz crew, Skymning, and Avoid Avoid, and then the weird and the wonderful from around the globe e.g. $hit and $hine, Sun Kil Moon, Daedelus, and Marshall Applewhite.

Next something to do next weekend? RDU’s Hauswerk presents Frank Booker at The Monday Room next Saturday night 20 October 2012. We’re away next Saturday but the good news is that Hauswerk’s John Ussher will be filling in for us. Mr Ussher is keen to bust out some classic hip hop, trip hop, downbeat tunes as well as some classic soul.
Did we ever tell you about Festival No. 6 happening in a few weekends time in Portmeirion, Wales? If not we apologise for not giving you time to get organised. Here’s a taste of what we’ll all be missing.
Thanks for the reminder by the lovely people at Caught by the River. They’re the peeps who released the fantastic “Under Milkwood” 7-inch single. The flipside is pretty cool too – Richard Norris aka The Time and Space Machine. Caught by the River will also be staging events at Festival No. 6. See you there next year perhaps?
If you’re at a loose end this evening please allow us to recommend a few events worth braving the cold for.
