That's good news then! Where can I get hold of tickets for that?
Will Diplo be there too or is that just wishful thinking?!

this has actually made my day after been beaten by bloody koreans in my uni lab test thing earlier !
i was actually getting worried that the empire was going down the pan after play left ,
drink prices are going to be key though , play was cheap , fridays not been cheap is the main reason my mates wont go and go to sumo instead.
North East nights - e-talking - 2007-11-09 16:04:36
from the looks of it they will keep it mainly the same. probs try trick people that its the same night.
North East nights - andy8271 - 2007-11-09 16:13:34
also wondering what sorta prices onyx rooms is going to be on the play night , before the fancy re fit and name change on a saturday it was fucking rediculous
went there once after getting thrown out of the empire , 6.50 dbl vodka red bull anyone.... thought i was in london for a second

i really want to see justice live, pissed off when i thought they were guna be supporting CSS in Newcastle then realising they werent supportin on that date. my mates dont really like Justice though so its guna be a bastard convincing people to come with us to middlesbrough

North East nights - Le_Coop - 2007-11-14 14:15:03
And you know i'll be going to attempt to reignite some Justice Love. Their live show best of changed when that date comes around too.
So....MIA, looks like Im keen as Sinden is 100 % supporting her tour. Ticketmaster doesnt mention glasgow so its all good.
Also, chromeo is at Digital thu 22 nov with free entry into sweatlove afterwards.
Im getting tickets now for Midnight Juggs & Digitalism now so you there whoever goes
Can someone remind me of big BORO nights coming up, I knew there were some but forgot.
North East nights - andy8271 - 2007-11-14 14:46:08
i dont think there are any big boro nights coming up actually
only thing i can think of at the moment is kissysellout and streetlife djs in december
never knew chromeo where on at digital like !!!

I got an email about the new saturdays at the Empire too, was going to post a similar message. In addition to Justice there's the return of Annie Mac, Durrr's Rory Philips and a DJ set from Kele of Bloc Party - given their apparent 'new direction' a set from him could be pretty interesting too. Looking forward to details of these over the next few weeks / months.

cosmic ballrooms is allright on a tuesday if your looking for somewhere to go afterwards , drum and bass downstairs and usually decent electro housey stuff upstairs. 1.50 dbl vodkas etc and 1 quid bottles etc...
seen kele play at the empire before
the bits i can remember where cheestastic (i cant actually remember all that much) mainly sandstorm mixed into the ghostbusters theme , and getting glow stick juice in my eye OUCH!!!!
North East nights - electroach - 2007-11-14 18:19:34
Sandstorm?! Oh dear! Maybe I'll give that one a miss then!
Having now given the article on Flux in NME a proper read through I'm thinking it may not actually be the greatest of sets. There's a small section "Kele's Dance Odyssey" of ten apparently inspirational tracks which includes Sandstorm, Dreamer by Livin' Joy and something from MC Neat amongst others (although to be fair most of the rest are quite good or at least forgivable)
North East nights - Le_Coop - 2007-11-14 19:46:04
Bollocks to the rest of the night but surely Sinden and MIA will be on for a total of 3 hours?
North East nights - andy8271 - 2007-11-14 20:19:07
might be worth trying to speaki to someone at digital and finding out
cant imagine them putting a sinden dj set on on that night though , would piss the people expecting the latest r kelly and rhianna right off wouldnt it

andy8271 Wrote:might be worth trying to speaki to someone at digital and finding outHe can easily play some serious black oriented music. Could belt out lots of baltimore and dirty south. Switch, sinden, herve, diplo, MIA etc They have such a varied set of tunes under their production never mind what they are willing to play on a DJ set.
I still have no idea how this night would work or what but maybe they are going for the educational route and trying to teach the mainstream rnb kids whats hot :-)

that looks fuckin amazing, shame i'll be working in sunderland

The Human League are playing the Sage in Gateshead on the same night as M.I.A. playing the Dare album in full, so........ I'm completely torn between the two now!
I know they're getting on a bit in years but I would still love to see these guys live, and the fact that they're playing THAT album in full for the first time is really tempting me but still not sure either way! The Human League are playing a gig in Sheffield on the friday prior to it which is an option, but I severely doubt my finances will stretch that far - if they were both a few days or a week later I'd be ok cos I get a bursary payment just before I finish for Christmas, but until then I'm a bit stuck.
Just an additional aside, I noticed on the Sage's website that there's a chamber concert going on in hall two on the same night with pieces from Haydn, Schumann and Brahms - love the contrast between the two!
