As strange as it sounds, I'll be DJ'ing at the Stoke Newington Literary Festival on Friday night as part of the "Well Versed" event. And (in what can only be a boon for the average skint vinyl collector) entry is completely free.
The poets on the bill the night are all well worth seeing and hearing, including Clare Pollard, Tim Wells, Niall O'Sullivan, Wayne Holloway-Smith, The Brothers Grim, Sophie Cameron, Amy Acre and Anna Le.
As for the music, well - there will be vinyl spun from 8pm - 10pm, then again from midnight until 2am, making this as good (and as varied) a start to the weekend as you could hope for. As well as me, you can hear John the Revelator and Miriam Elia spinning tunes.
The event is taking place at the Mascara Bar at 72 Stamford Hill, London, N16 6XS (opposite Morrisons). The Facebook event page is here. You need to come to this. I even promise you I have no intention at all of playing "You're OK With Us", if that swings your decision in my favour.
