The Littlest Birds Yard Sale

As the more observant among you may have noticed, Lynsey and I are going to be DJing at The Littlest Birds Yard Sale this coming Sunday in Glasgow. Here's more from the event's Facebook page:

"Turn your rags to riches with a stall at our yard sale in the old school on the corner of Carnarvon Street, Woodlands. Sell your quality jumble, arts/crafts and baked goods and or promote your own project/cause. We also need donations for our own cause - the creation of a truly alternative arts/cafe/charity retail space with profits going to young people's causes worldwide."

It's all taking place at The Albany Centre on Ashley Street and we'll be playing a selection of indiepop and whatever the hell else we feel like playing from 10am - 5pm. Please come up and say hello!

I'll probably post our playlist up here, when I can be arsed typing it up. You can play a lot of records in seven hours, you know.

PS. I've just realised I'm going to have to get up EARLY on a SUNDAY for this. Heads will roll!

Half My Heart Beats this Saturday


Hello! Sorry for the prolonged lack of blog posts recently. We've been tending to all the other parts of our lives that were neglected during the hectic month of July, and now it's almost time for the August instalment of Half My Heart Beats.

We're kicking off at the usual time of 11pm at The Flying Duck on Renfield Street, playing current and classic indiepop, girl groups and more. As ever, requests are welcome via Facebook, Myspace or blog comments!

I normally like to do a little roundup of what I've been listening to and try to identify a theme of sorts, but I'm not sure there is one this time around. I've spent most of the last week listening to the new Summer Cats album, which you really must buy at the first opportunity.

I'll post more later in the week - just wanted to give you an early heads-up about the club before you go and make weekend plans.
