Things are looking quite busy in the coming weeks, kicking off with two Tea Pad Presents gigs next weekend.
On July 2nd, Narc Fest 2016 takes over the Ouseburn and this year the Tea Pad are hosting a stage at the Cumberland. 7pm – late, free entry. I’ll be joining Rob Heron on the decks.
And then the very next day, the Tea Pad have their fourth annual Sunshine Medicine Show, another great line-up and again it’s free. 3pm-9pm this one, also at the Cumberland and also free.
Then on the weekend of July 16th / 17th it’s time for the annual SummerTyne Americana down at the Sage. There’s the usual Jumpin’ Hot Stage outside and I’ll be spinning tunes between the bands. Always a great couple of days…
The following weekend I’ll be over in Lancashire for another visit to The Perfumed Garden at Beatherder Festival. Always an oasis of good taste and comparative calm away from the taps aff kids, all ripped to the tits on blood-boiling rave drugs.
I’ll be playing at 4.30 on the Saturday afternoon and while I’m still not sure what kind of set I’ll be playing, it’ll probably involve some soul and some reggae.
Further away, I’ll be playing some tunes at the third Narc In The Park at the new Wylam Brewery in Exhibition Park on August 20th. And then on September 24th I’ll be hosting a one-off Jumpin’ With Stagger Lee night down at Ernest in Ouseburn (it’ll serve as a sort of belated birthday do too). More details nearer the time.
