Funktacular and Spooktacular

The Creature From the Funk Lagoon is returning!

You are aware of the Tyneside Cinema's swish new(ish) café-bar? YOU ARE NOW. It has all kinds of cool stuff on - quizzes, DJs, bands, plus fine food and beverages.

Well, the official Best Clubnight In The World Ever, the Funky Butt Club (which has been on hiatus for the last few months), is returning and it's new home will be fortnightly Fridays at the Tyneside's café-bar! AND the first one is TODAY, 24th October! AAAAAAND the Creature From The Funk Lagoon will be taking to the decks - to spin some funk, soul, disco, rhythm n blues, with maybe a sprinkling of rock n roll and hiphop and other funky goodness. Gonna be tops.

You are also aware of Nerd Hutch, Newcastle's new(ish) super-awesome DIY venue-space for super-awesome things like gigs and comics? YOU ARE NOW. Check the listings and see which cool bands and whatnot will be playing in the near future.

One of those fine upcoming events is a Halloween gig, featuring top punk tunes from Uniforms, solanos, and Skull Puppies. The Creature From the Funk Lagoon will be warm-up DJ, trying to set the tone with some spooky tunes (which aren't just the Monster Mash on loop all evening). Get yerself along for spooky good times.


More Investigating

There is such a thing as Tales of Extraordinariness #4: The Investigatist Returns. Yes, previously seen in ToE#1, the Investigatist now returns and faces his toughest case yet. It is pretty flipping tough.

Anyway, this mediocre publication might appear at Travelling Man Newcastle at some point (or not), but if you know me, just ask when you see me and I'll see if I've got any copies spare (though possibly not).
