dan le sac

Songs in the order they were played at November’s Dive Slow, aka me playing records at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Brighton from when I arrive until everyone goes home.

Note for those coming next time: it’s great that you like what I’m playing, and I’m totally up for being your friend. But I’m not a cloakroom. So please don’t ask me to look after your stuff, as while you’re welcome to leave it on the floor beside my feet, I’m a bit busy to be keeping an eye on it. What with the whole DJing aspect of me being there.

Speaking of Next Time: it’s a Christmas special! It’s on December 13th! It starts at 9pm and is totally free! And there’s a guest DJ, just like there was last year! This year, it’s dan le sac! That’s him pictured! Hooray! FACEBOOK EVENT.
