Brooklyn Parlor DJ Gig

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

On Tuesday October 23 2012 I’ll be DJ’ing at the vey cool New York style restaurant and bar Brooklyn Parlor in Shinjuku.
My mission is to bridge London-New York so I’ll be spinning anything from UK art rock to Acid Jazz to electronic lounge – a lot of music that I think fits a hipster city scene including David Bowie, Roxy Music, Lou Reed, Steely Dan, Incognito, Brand New Heavies, Us 3, Scritti Politti, Thomas Dolby, Trevor Horn productions, The Cocteau Twins, Frazier Chorus, The Specials, Mel Torme, Blue Six, St Germaine.. oh and my favourite New Yorker – Laurie Anderson!!

Swing by for a drink, dinner, coffee or dessert and say hi..
