MI Playlist, Download, Gigs and things...

Thanks to Soweto for coming on the show last night, my levels seemed pretty low after the Herbaliser gig the night before. This Friday (30th) Heducation are hosting the DMC Midlands heats at the Custard factory, good luck to all competitors...

Alternatively Barrowclough is having his album launch at the Hare and Hounds, £2 in with Live sets from Barrowclough, Benjamin Blower and HLI 8pm-1am.

Saturday is Soweto's Flyover Show, incredible line up (see above) and FREE, 1pm - 9pm

Jibbering vs Jam Jah is the perfect way to carry on the party @ Rooty Fruiti with Peckers curry included in the £5 entry and it's running from 6pm - 4am

has started a blog and it's definitely worthy of a e-bookmark.

Heres last nights show, mail me your requests, shouts, comments etc. Finally updated my Top 20 and have a good week,

Gigs and Things...

My good friend Barrowclough will be performing at Scratch Club tonight, usual open mic and decks too so no excuses

Friday sees The Bee's doing a DJ set at the Hare and Hounds alongside Guy Carlos, £2 in, they've got a great mix cd out at the moment too so don't sleep on that either.

Bank Holiday Sunday sees The Herbaliser return to Birmingham for their first live gig in a good few years just before their new album is released on K7! Support from Chris Read, Mad Flow and DJ Maxwell (Birmingham Jazz). Will be a heavy gig and the first time the Town Halls had a late licence!

Hopefully some live guests on Mondays show, I'll write more once confirmed. The last few show downloads are still live too so grab em if you haven't already (just scroll down abit).
