Saturday 22nd Jan 05
@ The Marie Lloyd
(Next to the Hackney Empire)
289 Mare St
9pm til 1am
This Saturday I'm down my local boozer playing corkin' choons to assorted east-end theatre going types and anyone else who happens to stumble through the door. It won't be a pure Reggae ting by any means but there'll be plenty of Jamdown sounds alongside some blistering Funk, Soul, Afro-beat, Jazz, Rap and pretty much whatever else accidentally ends up in my record box. The venue doesn't usually pull a big weekend crowd by any means (mainly cos no-one can tell the bleedin' place is open!!!) so it'd be good to see ya down there if you can make it.

I've wandered round the Empire a few times looking for the Marie Lloyd with no success... is it on Mare Street? Because if I can find it I might well come down, i have a feeling might be a bit sorrowful on that night so music would be good.
edited as I read the address clearly printed in first post, duh...
I think it's hard to spot cos there's not a big sign saying "MARIE LOYD BAR - WE ARE OPEN!!!" Annoyingly they tend to keep the curtains drawn to keep in the warmth, with the result that it always looks closed. I'll wear something eye-catching and stand in the front window waving!!!
