Manchester meet-up

Post by Andy Hunt »

Anybody up for a meet-up in Manchester soon to drink some beer before it's all diverted to fuel 4x4s in Florida?

Yes, ideally on a weekend although I could do a weeknight at a pinch.

The other thing is it will have to be after they have finished re-laying the tram lines to Bury, so I can get home afterwards . . . should be September I think.

The tram to Bury is off until 13th September apparently, so I suppose a weekend sometime after that would be best for me.

Saturday 15th September?

15th sounds good except at the moment it'll just be us 3. :roll: My son had a real laugh at me before when I was talking about it. He says there'd be 10 of us in a pub somewhere discussing how to save humanity. I daren't tell him there's only 3... :shock:

(He got more interested when I told him that "come the revolution" he could carry a gun around & shoot people who tried to steal the pumpkins from our allotment). :D

I'm working the weekend of 29th Sept BTW.

How about the weekend of 20th then? It's nice drinking beer inside when there's a bit of a nip in the air outside, anyway.

Plus my OH is working that day, so we could meet up at lunchtime and happily mellow the afternoon away . . . :wink:

Sounds good, will put it in my diary. 8) I'll have to let you know closer to the time whether it would be afternoon or evening. (I have 3 kids & 2 dogs to sort out & it's too long away to arrange).

Will your OH not come & met us? I'll be bringing mine. He's already Peak Oil iniciated. :wink: Where were you thinking would be good to meet?

When are you next playing as a DJ? I'd quite like to come & see you. We've hardly been out clubbing this year so would be up for that. :D

I think my OH might not come to talk about PO, she might come for the alcohol though! She knows about PO but she grew up with solid fuel heating and a family ethos of 'mend and make do', and saving things 'because that will come in handy one day', so it's quite matter-of-fact to her, and she isn't quite as obsessed with it as I am!!

I don't actually play my dancey stuff out very often, I 'fell out' with a large chunk of the local 'scene' a few years ago and never bothered to patch it up. I am not popular because I always point out that the local 'hippy' scene don't do much apart from get stoned and listen to music, the 'sustainable living' stuff which was traditionally a part of that scene has sadly gone by the wayside by and large.

But I do play out occasionally at parties with people who are on my wavelength - nothing booked at the minute but if I get anything I'll let you know. My next one is in Kent sometime, long way to go! And no date yet.

Looking forward to drinkies, should be fun! :D

Yeah, Kent is a bit far. :roll:

Where do / did you go out clubbing? I used to go to Tangled at The Phoenix on Oxford Road, but only been once since it's moved.

Yeah - I used to go to Tangled, some nice funky house and trance going on there. Was never that keen on the venue though, the 'scally factor' was always a bit high for me (mind you, Manchester innit!).

Where did Tangled move to? I used to go down the Music Box for trance and techno nights down there, I was involved with putting on a few nights by the name of Synergy, Relativity and Sci-Tec respectively over the years, in Club Underground (UMIST) and the Music Box. Packed it in though due to general skintness and burned-out-ness. Couple of years later decided to have a go at making my own tunes, and let other people pay for the parties in future!

Not sure where there are any decent nights in Manchester nowadays.

Drinks would be fine, I'm not into any dance music tho...
If there isn't guitars and screaming, It's just not music.
