Summer and that

Summer: DENIED

Well, the dream of endless sunny days and ice cream was again halted by the British weather being most uncharitable, but I wouldn’t have got to see much of it had it been belting out of the sky (sun, not ice cream. But imagine that…) as I have been gallivanting about working and generally not sleeping in my own bed. Not in a slaggy way I hasten to add. Chance would be a fine thing. ANYWAY, here is what I did and where I went this past couple of months since I last managed to scrawl an update:

Party for MAC make up; Devonshire Club; Rome; Flashpoint Festival; Latitude Festival (Rave Karaoke); G-A-Y; Birthday parties; djing dressed as a Disco Boxer (I appreciate this makes NO SENSE); many a wedding reception set; more birthday parties; Soho HouseEdinburgh; ONE DAY HOLIDAY IN SOUTHWOLD (go me, etc); Barbican; oh, more weddings; Birmingham to child mind (am the best aunt everrrrrr); Leeds Festival (Rave Karaoke); Edinburgh AGAIN.

It’s been fun. I have been to new cities, towns and venues and had all manner of cakes. So that kind of makes up for the ice cream / sun shortage. Besides, it were baking in Rome. One isn’t complaining mind.

In september, am here:

FRIDAY 1ST – NOTTING HILL ARTS CLUB 10-2

SATURDAY 2ND – WEDDING AT HIX

FRIDAY 8TH – RAZZMATAZZ, BARCELONA

In between I shall be worrying about Rita’s current storyline in Coronation St and enjoying the new GBBO. Am so glad it’s not rubbish.

As always, Twitter is my latest-up-to-date-what-I’m-doing-and-djing-and-where. But mainly it’s just telly talk. I love telly

Ok bye

 

Hotter than July

July: SURE BABES

Although we’re only on the second day of the month as I type, many things can be hotter than this July. A cup of tea left out for a couple of hours, a faulty boiler, my freezing cold heart… God I always harp on about the weather. ‘Tis fundamental to our culture in this septic isle it seems. ANYWAY, back to the razzle dazzle disco business of which I should be quacking about as my life is non-stop exciting GLAMMA 24/7 of course.

After returning to London a weary muck-splattered sequinned soldier from my disco marathon at the muddiest Glastonbury EVER (true facts) on Monday – proving a touch more than a challenge for a person with a low tolerance for any kind of dirt – was unexpectedly smacked back to reality by hosting Old Queen’s Head always-LOLZ pop quiz, then playing records post-cabaret show at the beautiful Bloomsbury Ballroom last night. A welcome bounce back to be honest, otherwise I would have just sat on the sofa staring / got lost on Mail Online / despaired over the state of the WORLD etc. Re BB,  the show runs until the end of this month – you can find out more about it by clicking on these words.

Here be me dates this month

Sundays – all of them – W Does Brunch, W Hotel

The best way to spend Sunday, I promise. And I never lie.  A three course brunch of foodie delight awaits as you recline on sofas, pop on your complimentary slippers and spend your Sunday in a luxurious state of pampered bliss as the ever excellent W staff attend to your every dining and drinking need. They might just plump up your cushions if you ask nicely. I’m on disco duty behind the decks with a more soulful set as appropriate for a Sunday when ears can be a little delicate and in need of gentle reviving. 12-4pm, book in here

Friday 8th July – Razzmatazz, Pop Bar

Back in Barcelona so soon! Que bueno! Playing at crackers o’clock in the morning to a room of ridiculously fun people. Razz rules. As does Barcelona. CAN. NOT. WAIT. Info here!

Saturday 9th July – Private Party, Richmond

(easy) Jetting back for a private party in Richmond where all the deer live (it is a party for people not deers, to be clear). (But imagine playing at a deer’s birthday party…)

Friday 15th July – Wedding, Cotswolds

Providing the entertainment for a couple’s ding dong day in England’s glorious countryside.

Saturday 16th July – RAVE KARAOKE, Latitude Festival

Rave Karaoke makes its debut at one of the country’s BEST festivals. OI OI! Seriously, this place is MAGIC. Am in the cabaret tent at 7pm for a pre-sunset singing rave UP! Tickets / stuff here

Playing at the top of the house 9pm – 1am. I bloody love this place

Friday 29th July – RAVE KARAOKE, Kendal Calling

Saturday 30th July – RAVE KARAOKE, Guilty Pleasures, KOKO
