Friday is either work-drinks/old uni friend/babysitting. Saturday is the middle option.

G, you may as well hit the Key on Sat, and maybe Islington on Fri.

Saturday is Tiefschwarz and Alter Ego, which is still tempting me, although there's a party I might go to that night as well. I thought you were being sensible and staying in on Saturday, Gareth?

Isn't Vitalic playing Cargo at some point soon?

Matt DC (Matt DC), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:03 (9 years ago) Permalink

Thats probably the Encompass thingy - they're taking over Cargo, 93 Feet East, Vibe and a few other venues. Should be loadsa stuff happening, but as I said, I don't know what the deal will be with tickets for most of it.

MattR (MattR), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:10 (9 years ago) Permalink

April 30 for Vitalic, I think.

The Lex (The Lex), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:12 (9 years ago) Permalink

Wow. Its like the electrohouse version of the Camden Crawl!*

*Remember that, indie kids?

Matt DC (Matt DC), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:22 (9 years ago) Permalink

Camden Crawl stills goes on, not that i'd participate

Sven Bastard (blueski), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:23 (9 years ago) Permalink

There's an act on the Camden Crawl I recall wanting to see but can't recall at all.

BARMS, Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:23 (9 years ago) Permalink

What is a Camden Crawl? It does not sound tempting.

The Lex (The Lex), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:25 (9 years ago) Permalink

i should stay in on saturday really

but...friday? what is on friday?

charltonlido (gareth), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:25 (9 years ago) Permalink

Camden Crawl is indie, Lex, back after a few years' hiatus. So, no, you wouldn't find it tempting.

is there much good stuff on this coming week?

lundy fastnet irish sea (cis), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:30 (9 years ago) Permalink

Friday: Club Seal for indie, Our Disco for electro, Cargo for audiovisualclashtricks, Don't Stop Me Now at The Garage ('indie pop/girls'), How Does It Feel To Be Indie at Buffalo Bar, Stay Beautiful at The Purple Turtle (now with added Bravery), The Queen Is Dead at The Borderline (indiefuckingpopagainlikeeverywhereelsebutdoanyoftheseclubsplaytheknifenotheydont),

i think i may go out. pick up a piece of caution and throw it gingerly into the breeze

charltonlido (gareth), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:38 (9 years ago) Permalink

How does one gingerly throw caution to the wind?

Matt DC (Matt DC), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:41 (9 years ago) Permalink

Maybe I'm just being naively cynical.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:42 (9 years ago) Permalink

Yup, just checked Ticketweb - they're flogging tickets for £10 now for it at Cargo. I'm guessing there's not going to be a huge amount of tickets if the Encompass people are all getting in free...

There's another multi venue 'thing' going on Easter weekend at various places around town (Koko, Old Blue (Vice Pub), Lock Tavern) with Hot Chip, Optimo, Park Attack, Whitey, Richard X, Paul Epworth (Phones), Druzzis Baltimore Rave Club, Our Disco, Eat Your Own Ears, Detournement & The Boutique. Their website (http://www.adventuresinthebeetrootfield.com/) doesn't seem to be up and running yet, but might be worth keeping an eye on.

MattR (MattR), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:45 (9 years ago) Permalink

ooh Detournement, fond Brighton memories

Sven Bastard (blueski), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 16:47 (9 years ago) Permalink

Saturday is bridge night

Can we seriously play bridge some Saturday? Like, prior to dancing? I'd love that.

(I can totally do vitalic in april, wow.)

Gravel Puzzleworth (Gregory Henry), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 17:06 (9 years ago) Permalink

la di da, tickets booked for vitalic @ cargo :-D

i will probably go to the key this saturday, too.

pete b. (pete b.), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 17:10 (9 years ago) Permalink

i knew someone would pick up on my bridge 'carrot dangling'

have you ever seen me throw?

The Lex (The Lex), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 17:13 (9 years ago) Permalink

AHEM, Katie G sort of of this parish is DJ-ing at the Buffalo Bars on Friday, not at a HDIF (that wz last week HOORAY FOR NINDIE), so you should all come to this obv! Here is the GEN:

I would be interested in bridge but MORE interested in CHESS.

Lucretia My Reflection (Lucretia My Reflection), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 17:15 (9 years ago) Permalink

RISK.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 17:17 (9 years ago) Permalink

I would be up for chess too! RISK is silly but we should clearly play DIPLOMACY, it is Risk without the silly dice and with added acne and spectactles and betrayal and FUN.

How does one book vitalic tickets?

Gravel Puzzleworth (Gregory Henry), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 17:21 (9 years ago) Permalink

ha ha Shabaz i have been teaching 'er indoor how to play Chess, there is much pwnage to be had

Sven Bastard (blueski), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 17:28 (9 years ago) Permalink

how about a few rounds of Shove Piggy Shove?

Sven Bastard (blueski), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 17:29 (9 years ago) Permalink

See u in an hour and a half, bitch.

BARMS, Tuesday, 8 March 2005 17:29 (9 years ago) Permalink

Indeed, Pickle has been telling me of pwnage - I still haven't had a game yet but I am starting a chess club, we are meeting sometime next week in a pub when I decide where, you should read my INTER LIVE WEB JOURNAL as that's where I organise my life these days. "organize"? SP? I am WELL RUB at teh chess.

I can't do further dancing on Sat night BTW as I am newly straight edge until Poptimism and fear I Could Not Cope!

What is Diplomacy, Greg? I don't know these strategy based board-games, they always seemed a bit too BOY for me (sez the Scrabble nutter).

Lucretia My Reflection (Lucretia My Reflection), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 17:35 (9 years ago) Permalink

Diplomacy is v.v.v.v.v. BOY, maybe it is a bad idea. Chess is wise though!

I still want Vitalic answers.

Gravel Puzzleworth (Gregory Henry), Tuesday, 8 March 2005 23:27 (9 years ago) Permalink

i fancy my chances chesswise

Cut Copy were ace tonight - i think Tuesday clugging is the way forward.

Sven Bastard (blueski), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 00:31 (9 years ago) Permalink

Stevem I will TAKE YOU DOWN.

Yana you are and remain a treat.

Gravel Puzzleworth (Gregory Henry), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 01:04 (9 years ago) Permalink

Cut Copy - Xtra HOTT. My "hott date" - not so much. Steve, you didn't miss much re: Wolfmother. I eneded up telling Mari that Doors tributes had no place in 2005, based on the 3 songs we stayed for, though we both agreed they had obvious appeal for their homeland (and a dozen mentalists knowing the words to the songs last night underscored that). We also agreed that had Kate been there, she may very well have ended up molestingobjectifying them.

Richard X is playing out next week, I vaguely recall.

BARMS, Wednesday, 9 March 2005 09:23 (9 years ago) Permalink

I have just bought a ticket for Vitalic-Hacker-Agoria. That looks too good to miss.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 09:32 (9 years ago) Permalink

i think i am on holiday, in the drizzle

whats happening on the weekends of the 9th and 16th?

i am tempted by next saturday, to celebrate the passing/avoiding of my exam

take me out, show me the bright lights and the pretty girls

charltonlido (gareth), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 10:21 (9 years ago) Permalink

you could choose something to do and everyone might go

Sven Bastard (blueski), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 10:28 (9 years ago) Permalink

I hope Vitalic will not sell out any time soon.

I still haven't decided about Tiefschwarz on Saturday aaargh.

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 10:37 (9 years ago) Permalink

is that at the Rex? i am afraid of there being 'trouble' - is this wrong? perhaps the lovely Shola would placate things tho...

Sven Bastard (blueski), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 10:40 (9 years ago) Permalink

it's not the Rex, it's... a venue I can't remember! It's on Theatre Square. Um.

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 10:47 (9 years ago) Permalink

Stratford Circus, that's the one. I think.

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 10:48 (9 years ago) Permalink

I can't make April 2nd as I will be at my cousin's wedding in a big house in the country, which is about as ungrimey as you can get.

I'm a little sceptical of this live band thing though. The band at Roots Manuva veered dangerously close to funk rock territory at times on Friday and I imagine this being even less appropriate for grime. Especially Lethal B.

Great lineup though.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 10:50 (9 years ago) Permalink

yes I am also suspicious of this live band thing. Itseems a little mental. I am most excited about KT Pearl!

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 10:51 (9 years ago) Permalink

live band could mean 'blokes with laptops' now tho

a calendar of some sorts may be needed.

i have lost track of what is happening, this friday in particular.

perhaps i will hang around in crowds, because i want to

charltonlido (gareth), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 11:16 (9 years ago) Permalink

there is a calendar. i'll give you the keys if you like.

Sven Bastard (blueski), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 11:20 (9 years ago) Permalink

i would like the keys as well, i think.

i am not sure, about this schtick.

maybe i will be, tomorrow

i'm up for optimo at our disco. i haven't had a good supersuperlate night in quite some time.

lauren (laurenp), Wednesday, 9 March 2005 11:23 (9 years ago) Permalink

I'll come because of my whole birthday run-up thing, but you're not allowed to kiss and run on me this time, LP.

BARMS, Wednesday, 9 March 2005 11:25 (9 years ago) Permalink

it seems like rather a vulpesian schtick, if yeh get meh...tho it is strangely seductive, dammit

"Vulpesian"? Are you cussing in Irish?
