This month's instalment of the NY Times bestseller Marsicans Band Blog comes from me, James. As I look out of my window to see my new Ultra Soft Pyjama Bottoms (USPBs) flying in the wind, I can't help but reminisce on what has been the best year of my life. *Queue the montage clips and power ballads*.
BUT before I get all emotional on you, I'll fill you in on our December ongoings.
We started the month with our final SCHOOL NIGHT of 2016. We invited down our friends in Cassia and Vynce, who played mega sets to a packed out Oporto before the Virgin Mary, Jesus, Santa and an Elf (A.K.A. us) took to the stage for what was an incredibly fun gig. I never thought we'd end our set with a cover of The Darkness' Christmas Time (Don't let the bells end)...
MORE B2B -banger to banger- indie choonz chosen by us plus free Jaeger jellies all night at our monthly SCHOOL NIGHT DJ residency. What more could you want?
Get yourselves down to Oporto on Wed 2 March, when we'll be joined on the decks by Sisteray, who we gigged with in London earlier this month, straight from their Headrow House gig with Victors,Lone Guns and Atlanta House. Did someone say "after party"?
FOR SOME REASON we've been invited back to man the decks at our fave hometown hang-out Oporto. This time it's for Circa Waves' official afterparty following their set at the O2 Academy Leeds on Monday Oct 12. If it's anything like last time, it'll be a blast! See you for some choice choons and a lot of Jaeger.
THE GOOD PEOPLE at Independent Leeds asked us to "dig the scene" recently. It turns out we didn't need shovels, just to take them to some of our favourite places in Leeds and chat about why we liked them. So that's what we did...with sexy results!
WE'VE SOLD OUT...not to Da Man, but for Sunday's gig at Oporto. This is our third sold out headline show in Leeds in the last six months. Sorry if you haven't managed to get your hands on tickets to one of these.
There will be a FREE PERFORMANCE in-store at Jumbo Records, Leeds on 18 April for the official Record Store Day release of Gone In A Second.
