As some of you may know, I work at a new agents. In between selling dirty magazines to old men and being asked directions to everywhere within a 50km radius, I get to read magazines during my lunch break. As you can imagine, I spend most of my time flicking through the music magazines. While Spin is by far my favourite, whenever I want to read crazy amounts of hype or about one of the Gallager brothers pissing off yet another person, NME can provide a lot of entertainment.
Now you can experience all the fun of your favourite bitchy music magazine in person, with the Club NME tour which will be happening in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
It is set to become a reoccurring event and the first one will feature Philadelphia Grand Jury, Yacht Club DJs, Purple Sneakers DJs and most impressively, a DJ set from Andy Rouke, the bassist from The Smiths.
The dates are:
THURSDAY 25TH FEBRUARY – Empire Hotel, BRISBANE
FRIDAY 26TH FEBRUARY – The Hi Fi Bar, MELBOURNE
SATURDAY 27TH FEBRUARY – Manning Bar, SYDNEY
To celebrate, Yacht Club have remixed The Good News by Philadelphia Grand Jury. Admittedly I’m not a huge remix fan and although it’s fun to hear the song in a different way, it looses some of the charm of the original.
