Welcome, weekend readers! (unless you’re reading this on a Monday. Or a Tuesday. Or… yeah, hi.) Here, DiS is pleased to present a digest, if you will, of the week’s most interesting (?) news stories. Hopefully, assuming we remember to do it, this will be a weekly thing – every Friday evening, a neat little summary of the week’s comings and goings in the world of music. You like it, right?
Should you be short of an evening’s entertainment this Sunday – this Sunday being January 28 – please do direct your attention to the DiS-associated show at London’s 93 Feet East venue, featuring the flippin’ wonderful Dananananananananaykroyd (too many ‘an’s?), along with the also-brill’ Untitled Musical Project and the gloriously beautiful Shady Bard. Mmm, we like – click HERE to learn more.
Now digest this…
