Blogasaurus Rex!

It's coming. On Sunday in Manchester's Contact Theatre (next to the Academy on Oxford Road), the stars of the Manchester music blogging miniverse are joining together like some sort of web-savvy/music-spoddy Voltron to create the beast that is Bloggerpalooza. From 6pm onwards, the cream of the crop of Manc's mp3 bloggers will be providing a sensory treat for your ears and eyes (beautiful guys and gals that we are, once you look past the pixel tans) as part of Manchester's five-day Futuresonic festival. Sod The RZA, we're the big draw this year so you really should be there.

There'll be various web 2.0 kind of shenanighans going on like live internet streaming, an ongoing Twitter feed telling you what we're playing as it spins and all sorts of other fun stuff. It's going to be great so if you're in the area, there's really no excuse for not coming. Your selectors for the night are Just Hipper and The Ledge from The Indie Credential, Niles and Baggy from Cosmic Disco, the Best Foot Forward crew, Shoplifters, Jon The Beef from Black Country Grammar and, of course, yours truly. Hopefully the weather will stay nice too.

I might well play this...

6th Burrough Project - So Glad (mp3)

... but not this, although I think you'll admit it'd be funny if I did...

Tim And Eric - Doo Dah Doo Doo (mp3)

See you there?

More from me soon, honest...

Can't remember if it was on the blog I read you mention about Lovecraft. Am I being gay?

Eeerp - that was too long a link to post, soory.

Anyway, not that I'm a promoter, its just that i was enthused after watching Carl Craig, GIles Petersen and Hercules And Love Affair at the End over Easter.

THought this *may (pr not) be handy - you can download 'recommends' once you join the end club .com (all joined up)

Hey Munira. Doing some street-teaming are we? :-)

I'd not heard that Aesop Rock mix but it ain't bad. Not totally my thing, but pretty good.

street teaming?

Ha ha

Did you know you and I share the same birthday - 11 April

That could be seen as street stalking, no?
