Busy Buffet

We have lots to tell you!

First of all, there’s the latest radio show, which inevitably contains a bit of Prince, but TBH there’s something in there for everyone as we veer from rock to electronica to grime to disco Beatles. Described as “Top quality light entertainment” by Phil Cope, which puts us up there with Eurovision, right?

Then there’s Front Room Disco at Kirkgate Centre on Saturday 21st May, hosted by us! Yes, Wil Oddsox has entrusted us with his baby, the daft bugger. Expect disco chaos. We haven’t had a good dance in ages, we’ll be like crazy monkeys let out of the cage.

Finally, we’re also hosting Record Club on Saturday 28th May, also at Kirkgate Centre. The event is 33 1/3 Revolutions, so rock up with your political music and social commentary on vinyl. Wonder how many versions of Two Tribes you all have?

Hope to see you at one or all of the above!

Fabulous Funky Disco
Saturday 29th November 7:30pm-11pm

Join us for an evening of disco dancing. Don’t snigger, this will be ace fun! We’re DJ-ing at Left Bank Leeds.

It’s a not for profit event, and, as purveyors of a nice spread, we’re bound to play something you’ll want to dance to.

Full details and ticket info here




X_flyerRC1 copyChristmas Record Club
Saturday 6th December 8pm-11pm

Then on 6th December we’re hosting The Record Club at the Kirkgate Centre in Shipley. The theme is, of course, Christmas and we’ll be playing three full LPs by Andrew Jackson Jihad, Phil Spector and Sufjan Stevens. There’ll also be a little time to play your own Christmas records in between, plus there’s a Pop Quiz (and who doesn’t love a music quiz, eh?). To get you in the mood you can check out the playlist we’ve put together – you’ll notice it’s not typical of the Xmas music that gets pumped into our earholes every time we go shopping. And check out full details of the event on the Record Club website.

One more thing… Boris is reported to be doing well after his accident, and there’s still time to make a small donation to Keswick Mountain Rescue who saved him. This fundraising effort by Ewan Mitchell has exceeded £1000, which is just awesome. Massive snogs to everyone who’s donated!

We hope to see you at the disco and/or Record Club!

Keswick Mountain Rescue Rocks!

2Earlier this week our Boris (AKA Lyndon Marquis) was seriously injured in a horrible accident. We are enormously grateful to Keswick Mountain Rescue for finding and saving him.

We’ve uploaded Boris’ radio debut  but the real point of this post is to ask everyone to support a fundraising effort by way of a thank you. If you can sponsor Ewan Mitchell he’s running the Abbey Dash in Leeds this weekend. Please donate as little or as much as you can.

You can also join us for a Christmas Record Club at the Kirkgate Centre in Shipley on 6th December. It’s just £3 on the door and all proceeds from the evening will also be donated to Keswick Mountain Rescue. They are an entirely voluntary team of 45 who do brilliant work (they saved our friends’ life and we will love them forever).

Please support these fundraising efforts and send virtual hugs to Boris!

Thanks for reading, Team Buffet
