Just noticed on his Myspace site that Roy Paci and Aretuska have a sole London gig lined up for 8 June at the Astoria 2 (not on the list at the time of writing). Would be a must-see for me if I was there.

Although it's not yet listed on the Mean Fiddler website, a quick phone call confirmed that tickets are on sale for £18 (cash price for personal callers), over 14s only.

Is this correct?

I would have expected Eddy to be filling the Shepherds Bush Empire, especially after stealing the Mandela Birthday Party last Friday.

I don't know if this has been mentioned elsewhere here, but I believe Soha is supporting Buika at her QEH gig on the 20th November.

And the night before, Rokia Traoré is at the Jazz Cafe!

This had somehow ended up halfway down page 2, so we can't be having that.
