Electro Swing! **Pre-meet Crown and Shuttle 8:30**

Don't know if it's just me but I don't seem to notice these nights happening so much anymore, so now that one is coming up I want to make sure I get to it! A night of swing music, but 'electro'd up, sounds like fun! And hopefully I can put my Itchy Dance moves to the test.

Looks like it's a tickets on the door thing. We can get a drink somewhere nearby first. Possibly the Griffin over the road. Would be good to try to get in there before the price jumps from 5 quid to 10 (after 10 pm).

      I remember one of the bar people said they only wanted a mixed crowd of men and women so it could have been that?

      April 22, 2013

    • Jamina W.

      No - it wasn't that. The guy on the door was just being 'sensitive'. Well, I haven't spoken to them about it directly yet but my blog post on Electro Swing will be going up soon and I shall be mentioning it in that and alerting them to it! Will see what they say.

    Can someone tell me what electro swing is?

    April 17, 2013

    • Jamina W.

      Take a listen to some of the tracks on the event page, or The Correspondents. Think swing but with modern beats.
