Tonight, Darbucka's beautiful Bedouin basement bar will play host to a special night of live music, dance and DJs as part of the London wide Bellybeats Festival. Live on stage Forty Thieves Orkestar will be playing a deliciously spicy blend of Eastern and Balkan melodies, served piping hot over dub, breaks and hip-hop beats. Featuring live instruments and imaginative laptop rhythms, Thief in chief Aidan Love and his cohorts are one of the finest bands on the London live circuit.

There will also be a display from Polly's Bellydancing Troupe taking thr floor for some beguiling moves.

Special guest on the decks is Leon Parker, the man behind the Bellybeats Festival and a resident DJ at the Princes Amongst Men night at the Brixton Ritzy Café. Tonight he'll be joining resident DJ Jamie Renton for a game of DJ ping-pong.

This Thursday's Bellybeats launch party is going to take place upstairs in the airy restaurant / bar rather than the basement.

See you there?

Jamie

Certainly will. And when Chilli Fried finishes at midnight for those of us who don't wish to sleep Errol Linton's Blues Vibe will be kicking off at Gaz's Rockin' Blues in Wardour St, Soho. Gaz's runs LATE - last time there Errol didn't come on til close to 12! Homeboy still rocked the joint. I think it's maybe £5 to get in and Gaz Mayall is a boss DJ who plays a great mess of ska, blues, r&b. A bit like Jamie without the non-english language tunes!

Garth, you're a bad influence for flagging up Errol's afterhours gig. Some of us have work in the morning & can't possibly stay out late into the night.

Mind you, the next day's Friday ... practically the weekend really ...

Hmmm?
