Welcome back you fine people and we’re nearly at the end of the week once again. That’s got to be a good thing right? I had hoped to ramble on about other stuff this week but again it comes down to making sure you know all about forthcoming events so let’s get cracking with that.
Another big London event lined up to coincide with Joe’s anniversary is the ‘Brixton Calling’ event being put on by Strummerville on Dec 20th. The gig takes place at The Windmill Brixton, 22 Blenheim Gardens, London SW2 1XN, UK. Doors are at 730pm and while I’m not sure what the admission cost is you can find out more on this link over at Strummerville. Looks like it will be a good night and features (amongst others) The Lone Groover, The Savage Nomads and a reading from Chris Salewicz from you can guess which book. Needless to say the proceeds benefit the aforementioned nonprofit – so get a along.
I also received a few notes after my recent post about gigs this month and feel obliged to give them a quick mention too.
Also on the horizon is this event in Italy called Strummer Calling the next night Dec 21st. Full details are available via the Facebook page for the event but here’s the official blurb (in Italian for the most part but if you’re going that’ll prove no bother), caps lock warning with apologies but I didn’t feel like rewriting it all. It takes place at Bloom in Mezzago, a suburb of Milan

Slovakia is next (nice!) and the event is called Viva Joe Strummer – Let’s Rock Again. My linguistic skills mean that I can’t tell you an awful lot but it does take place on Dec 20 at the Boogie Bar in Trencin which has a lovely castle. How about that? Better off visiting the Facebook page for the event if you’re in that part of the world.
I’ve no doubt still missed some but if I have they’ll get added over the next few days I’m sure. Thanks for dropping in and as ever please share the blog in case those in far off places aren’t aware that we’re all here having a good time.
