On Sunday my Upstairs At The Ritzy night hosts an 8-piece band I've never seen before. It should be fun hot in the summer evening!

This month's sonic adventurers are Op Sa! A dynamic, London-based Balkan band blend Serbian and Macedonian brass marching band music with jazz influences and rock and roll attitude. Op Sa!'s mix of East & West is very fresh and very exciting. Put your dancing shoes on, no one sits down when Op Sa! start rocking Balkan brass!

Doors: 8pm.

FREE ENTRY.
Upstairs At The Ritzy - nearest tube Brixton.

Good to hear Cerys giving Garth a well-deserved plug this week in the midst of her Tony Joe White tribute on BBC Radio 6 http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b062sbzz approx 02:47

That new Tony Joe White compilation ('Swamp Fox'), to which Garth provides the sleeve notes, is very good. I already had the 'Best of', but thought that maybe this collection might have been curated with a little more care, so I took a punt. I was pleased to discover that it was money well spent.
