This Friday is the last one of the month, and you know what that means, it's Pin Up Nights time! I won't be able to say that for much longer, as there are a mere two Pin Ups events to go, Ladies Night this week, then the final Pin Ups Night in March, then it's all over. I don't generally do clubs - hey, I'm old - but my outings to Pin Ups are always good ones with many fond memories, albeit quite hazy ones, so I'll miss it when it's gone.
Things might be coming to an end, but the Pin Ups crew seem pretty determined to go out with a bang. Ladies Night promises all the usual treats, including the standard good song selections of the Pin Ups DJs, who are joined this month by guest DJs Wild Beast,
Playing live this month are Kid Canaveral - who if you haven't noticed how much I love by now you probably never will, The Plimptons - whose upcoming new album has a bunch of wrestling references, pitching it firmly up my street, and Fanny Pelmet and the Bastard Suits - who I, err, know nothing about, but I like their name.
Kid Canaveral - You Only Went Out To Get Drunk Last Night
The Plimptons - Be Expected
Additional treats include not one, not two, but three burlesque acts. Vendetta Vain, Tom DeLish and Babette Corvette will be strutting their stuff sometime around midnight. Which gives me an excuse for this video...
As always everything takes place at the Flying Duck, tickets are available here for six quid. Buying in advance saves you money, as the price rises to £8 if you pay on the door, so go ahead and buy now.
I'll give you more details about Pin Up Nights - Game Over closer to the time, but until then I should probably draw your attention to one thing. The team want Jarvis Cocker to DJ at the final night, but have so far had no luck. Naturally then, they've started a petition to Get Cocker. You can find out more details over on Facebook, and sign the petition here.
