Billy-Bootleggers[1]

Billy Bootleggers is a brand new Toon centre bar – hard by Grainger Street Market underneath Bar 28 on Nelson Street – based on a vintage American dive bar.  It looks great in there, the booze is high quality and judging by recent appearances, so are the bands.

And I’m going to be playing some records down there from time to time, starting with a double whammy this bank holiday weekend (Friday 26th and Saturday 27th) from about 11pm when the bands finish till about 2am when we all get thrown out.

Come down, entry is free and it’ll be good times
