Soul Buggin' bugs out at Sounddhism

So last week we finally revealed our new home where we'll be continuing our monthly disco-inspired nonsense and rest assured our plans are coming together nicely for our first party on bank holiday easter Sunday 8th April. Before we unveil our line up and further details on that party it's worth a mention of another little session we've been asked to play at the same venue on Saturday March 3rd called Sounddhism. We played there last year with Simbad and Natalie Duncan and had a laugh so they've invited us back and put us in charge of their late night dancefloor joystick (oo-er) alongside Brownswood Records rising star Pedestrian, Harleighblu, Hannah Heartshape and Georgie Rose. Tickets are a fiver for that session and we're treating it as a nice little unofficial warm up for our big relaunch the following month.

Soul Buggin' finds a new home...

So after weeks of speculation, drunken banter and plenty of poking and prodding from inquisitive disco fiends at 6am after parties we can finally reveal our new home in 2012 - The Bodega Social Club, 23 Pelham Street, Nottingham. Check their website out here for what goes on.

Since we learned of the very sad closure of Moog late last year we've been trawling Nottingham's basements, boozers and bars for a suitable alternative that not only could adequately host our little monthly disco but more importantly prove suitable for our antics, punters and visiting guest djs. To say this was a headache is an understatement but after much deliberation, head scratching and generally weighing up the price of fish we came to a decision that not only made perfect sense but would enable us to continue where we left off and provide just the right space for our party.

The Bodega Social has played host to a ridiculous amount of bands and djs over the years, far too many to list here and for a central city venue is about as eclectic as you'd hope to find musically. Already home to thriving alternative club nights like Sounddhism and Highness we're honoured and excited to be welcomed onto the roster. When we told Raul (the Soul Buggin' online master swordsman) he instantly striped off and tried to neck a whole carton of Sunny Delight. What a crazy fruit.

So I guess the next question is when is the next party? Well in true Soul Buggin' fashion our eyes always hover over a good old bank holiday so our first 'official' party will be on Bank Holiday Easter Sunday 8th April. Full line up yet to be confirmed so keep your eyes on the blog for updates over the next few weeks but we'd love you to all come down and break us in proper. After that we'll be going out on the last Saturday of the month, just like we did at Moog, so no need to mess about with your diaries, child care or more importantly your sunday morning carers/chemist/eastenders omnibus settings.

More news soon cometh but get that date in your diaries and get some new pants on order
