This month's Great Big Kiss is this Friday, December 7th, at the Buffalo Bar. Our guest DJs are Sarah and Janine from the fabulous Actionettes, who'll be playing their usual floorfilling mixture of girl groups, girl groups and girl groups! We'll be pitching in with some northern soul, Motown and rock'n'roll, and also playing songs from Phil Spector's "A Christmas Gift For You" album. Last year, we played every song from the album throughout the night, but as it's only the start of the month, we're just going for the more upbeat tracks this time around. So a sprinkle of Christmas to kick off the festive season. Come out for a dance!
Admission is the usual price of £4 for members and £6 for non-members, and advance tickets are £6. You can pick up an advance ticket here - http://www.wegottickets.com/event/195896
As usual, I've been record hunting on ebay and the like, and I've uncovered some gems to play at the club on Friday. My pick of the bunch is "Let's Get Together" by Barbara And Brenda, a brilliant r&b-tinged girl group stomper. Take a listen to it here:
