NEXT CHANCE TO JUDDER – 5th DECEMBER 2014

14_12_Judder_[jpg]_600

Good day, Juddering boys and girls!

I’ll be honest, I’m still at a loss for words after our JUDDER HALLOWEEN SPECTACULAR – this event is always the highlight of the Judder calendar, and we know you all like to make a special effort, but nothing could have prepared us for what happened… we were inundated with hundreds of mayhem-hungry trick or treaters from the moment we opened the door, almost all of whom were in fabulous costumes and were ready to party hard! And party they did – I have never seen the dancefloors so full of smiling faces and the courtyard to be quite so buzzing with revellers. The cherry on the top was a banging set from guest DJ Geoff Echo, who I got to go back-to-back with for 90 minutes at the end of the evening for some true dancefloor carnage!

We were so busy on the night that we have yet to judge the competition for the best fancy dress and this is where we need your help – please send us your photos of the night via the Judder Facebook and tag all your friends – before our next Judder we will be giving away some fabulous prizes including a years’ free entry to Judder! And if you let us share your photos on the Judder site, you can get in free next time too! Official photos will be coming soon and we can’t wait to re-live the mayhem!

Our next Judder will be the last one of 2015, but we are hoping to make it a date to remember – it’s JUDDER’S DISCO CHRISTMAS with special guests Dan & Vicky from Birmingham’s TRON and Dystopia club nights! We will be dishing out festive gifts to naughty *and* nice girLs and boys, and blinging up for Christmas with full festive decor & extra sparkles! Entry is just £3 all night if you are dressed ready for the disco, so dust off those party hats, attach tinsel to your extremities and have one last festive blow-out before the relatives start making their demands! Join our Facebook event here!

And if you’re looking for something similarly sparkly to bridge the gap left by us not having a Judder in November, I recommend Glitterati in London which is happening this Saturday – have a look at their Facebook event for more info.

We are also just about to sort our dates for 2015 and have some ideas for themes, but we are always keen to hear suggestions for new ideas or to bring back popular themes for another run – drop us a line with your ideas and if we choose one we will let you in for free on that night as a thank-you!

Right, I’m off to deck the halls and figgy the puddings – see you in December!

NEXT CHANCE TO JUDDER – 31st OCTOBER 2014

14_10h_Judder_[jpg]_600

Greetings, Juddering Boys and Girls!

What a weekend that was! My ears are still ringing from the cowboy antics of our WILD WEST COWBOY JUDDER and the last of the Jack Daniels’ has only just been seen off! What a spendid way to say goodbye to the last of the balmy summer evenings – the atmosphere was fantastic all night and some of the jostumes were spectacular! Big thanks to our guest DJ Miss Glitch for bringing a big bag of bludgeoning beats and keeing the dancefloor moving… we will have the photos up on the website as soon as we can for you, and you’ll be able to tag all your friends if you go to the Judder Facebook Group.

The bad news is that we don’t have a Judder in November this year… but the good news is that JUDDER’S HALLOWEEN SPECTUCULAR falls on Halloween itself! So this year, come and join us on FRIDAY 31ST OCTOBER for what is sure to be the biggest and best Halloween party in town! As usual, we’ll be pulling out all the stops to turn the 2 Pigs into a 2-floor haunted house with full spooky decor throughout. Our guest DJ is none other than Geoff Lee of Modulate fame, and to top it all, Jagermeister is just £1 a shot all night long! There will be some awesome prizes for those in the best costumes, and to deal with the onslaught of ghoulish party-goers, we are open for 2 more hours, running from 9pm – 4am for SEVEN HOURS OF PARTY MAYHEM! So come and join us for a night of legendary tricks, treats and things that go bump in the night!

Look forward to seeing all you grisly characters for the witching hour!

Howdy, Juddering cowpokes!

Hope you are all well and enjoying our little burst of Indian summer! It sure helped us to have a great old Judder last week with our JUDDER UNDER CONSTRUCTION – a splendid night by all accounts, with some fab costumes and safety gear in full effect, a couple of banging sets from guest DJ [rebelbrethren] and much revelry until the wee small hours! It was good to see lots of first-timers having a blast, so let’s hope we can keep growing the Judder family – don’t forget to spread the word! Phots from the night are up in the Judder webpage gallery and on Facebook so get tagging your friends!

Next Judder is our WILD WEST COWBOY JUDDER! on Friday 3rd October – It’s time to grab your chaps, polish up your six-shooter and get on your horse & join us for the wildest party in the (South) West! We will be joined by guest DJ Miss Glitch from London, and as a special cowboy treat, we’re extending the Jack Daniels’ offer for another Judder – JD is just £1.40 a shot all night, and Honey Jack is only £1.80, plus will have lots of giveaways to continue celebrating Jack Daniels’ birthday! Entry is just £3 if in fancy dress and there will be giveaways for early birds so come down early and hoe-down at the best party in town!

The other important thing we need to tell you is that this year, our JUDDER HALLOWEEN SPECTACULAR has been brought forward a week – this year we will be opening the doors of our fully decorated haunted house on Halloween itself – FRIDAY 31ST OCTOBER. We will also be giving you another 2 HOURS of haunted house clubbing and running from 9pm – 4am, PLUS we have guest DJ Geoff Lee from dancefloor-fillers MODULATE, so it’s shaping up to be a somewhat legendary evening!

And if you can’t wait that long to hang out with the Judder crew, a whole bunch of us will be performing and having a lovely time at the Bleephaus stage as part of FrogFest which takes place at the Frog & Fiddle in Cheltenham on Saturday 20th September – if you like your music electronic and experimental, then this is the place to be!

14_07_Judder_[JPG]_600

Hey there, independent-thinking Judderers!

We’ve just made it back from the 70’s where we can report that our COP SHOW JUDDER was one of the moust fun
and messy nights of the year! Aviators and stick-on moustaches were in full effect, and despite the absence
of our resident DJ KungpAu (covered by a heroic 5-hour set from Aces High!) the night was rocking from dusk
til dawn! Big thanks to DJs from Shenanigans who helped to spice things up too. We’re really looking forward
to seeing the photos for this one, and will be sure to add the to the gallery and Judder Facebook
as soon as they arrive!

So, your next chance to Judder is on July 4th – and we decided to make the most of the date and hold our
first Independence Day Judder! Yes, JUDDER needs YOU!! So join us in your finest stars and stripes regalia,
or dress as a freedom fighter, ready to see off a threat of your own (be it earth-bound or extra-
terrestrial..!)! We will be joined on the decks by our guest DJ for the night, The VIRUS Empire, and should
be back to full numbers on the downstairs floor. Remember, entry is just £3 all night if in fancy dress and there will be treats for early birds!

And if you can’t wait until then, why not pop along to our next Bleephaus event at Grumpy Whiskers in
Cheltenham on Saturday 21 June – it’s free entry and features performances from Brown Torpedo, Kenji Run and
Krugazor – all of whom have been guest DJs at Judder in the past! More info here.

Right, see you in a couple of weeks, my freedom fighters!

NEXT CHANCE TO JUDDER – 6TH JUNE 2014

Good afternoon, law-abiding citizens of Judder!

Well we’ve made it back from the dark ages, and can report that our medieval Judder crew sure know how to party! It was a most splandid evening resplendent with gallant knights, comely wenches, a full troupe of jesters and many other miscreants, all intent on partying like it was 1199! Thanks to DJ Crispygoth who played two splendid sets of banging tunes, and a special whoop to our resident DJ KungpAu for bringing the mead for the early birds. I am particularly looking forward to the official photos from this one as some of the costumes were spectucalar, and as usual there are a handful of photos on the Judder Facebook already with more to be added to the gallery soon.

So, it’s quite a gap until our next event, which is our 70’s COP SHOW JUDDER on Friday June 6th – plenty of time to dig out the mirrored aviators, grow that handlebar moustache you’ve always wanted, and polish your badge! Entry is just £3 in fancy dress, and we are joined buy guest DJs from Shenanigans in London, so the night is sure to be a party like none other!

If that seems like a long time to wait, then come and join some of the Judder regulars at DRONEHAUS this Saturday 10th May at Grumpy Whiskers in Cheltenham, where I will be joined by a wide and varied selection of noisy musicians for 12 hours of drone music to celebrate International Drone Day. Entry is free and the waffles are delicious! More info here:
https://www.facebook.com/events/1462182444018031

Right, I’m off down the gun range to get ready to strike fear into the hearts of the perps and felons – see you on 6th June!

NEXT CHANCE TO JUDDER – 2ND MAY 2014

Good day my lords and ladies of Juddershire!

We have returned from the wilderness of Judders past, and can report that our previous Children’s Television Judder was a thing of confusing beauty! There were some spectucular, inspired and just plain wrong costumes, guest DJ Mark13 blew the roof off with a couple of banging guest DJ sets and the dancefloors were full of smiling faces. It truly felt like spring had sprung with a real festival vibe in the courtyard too! There are a few photos in the gallery with more to come soon..

So, it’s time to look forward to our next Judder which is not so far away… on Friday May 2nd we bring you MEDIEVAL JUDDER! We’ve got some real treats lined up for this one, and we’ll be joined by guest DJ Crispygoth of Batfink & Collision infamy from Sheffield. It’s just £3 entry all night if you’re dressed as a knight, jester, king, queen, buxom wench or swarth sell-sword, so polish up your armour, don your hose and join us for a night of medieval debauchery, wassailing and ales aplenty!

See you soon, my loyal servants of the court of Judder!

NEXT CHANCE TO JUDDER – 4TH APRIL 2014

 

Good day to you, Juddering boys and girls!

Hope you are enjoying the unexpectedly cheerful weather! At Judder HQ we are certainly thankful for a bit of sunshine, and it certainly helped make our Time Travel Judder such a roaring success on Friday! The atmosphere was brilliant from the moment we opened the doors, both dancefloors were full of enthusiastic revelers, guest DJs Gitzy and Squeaky from Dystopia played a couple of brilliant sets, and the courtyard – Judder’s secret weapon – had a real festival vibe all night! We’ll be gathering together a few snaps of the night soon (to be honest I was busy having so much fun I forgot about my camera!), and will be sharing the official pics from Michelle as soon as they arrive – let us know if you have any to share in the meantime and you could win free entry to Judder!

If only there were some way to go back and do it all again..! In the absence of a time machine, let’s look forward to our next Judder, and yet again, it’s just a short 4-week gap until our next one, which will be CHILDREN’S TELEVISION JUDDER on Friday April 4th. There’s plenty of scope to go crazy with the costumes on this one and earn yourself entry for just £3, there will be treats for early birds, and our guest DJ will be the return of the mighty Mark13 from London’s Negative Creep & Monster Truck – banging!

Until next time, be good boys & girls and see you on the 4th April!

NEXT CHANCE TO JUDDER – 7TH MARCH 2014

Good day, Judder lovers,

Happy Valentine’s day from Judder HQ! Hope you are having a day filled with loveliness! We are still all dreamy from our fiest Judder of 2014 last week, our Goblin King’s Ball, which was a phenomenal start to the year! There were some truly exquisite costumes and masks, and despite some pretty gnarly weather the atmosphere was warm and wonderful! Guest DJ Kenji Run played 2 sets of awesome 80’s styled electro, and both dancefloors were swinging before the witching hour, just how we like it! There are a handful of snaps on the Judder website gallery, and we are expecting our resident photographer Michelle to drop hers with us any day, but if you have any photos you’d like to share with the Judder massive, then drop us a line and you could win free entry for next month!

So, the good thing about February being a short little month is that our next Judder is going to be with us in next to no time – on Friday 4th March it’s our TIME TRAVEL JUDDER with guest DJs Gitzy and Squeaky from Birmingham’s popular Dystopia club night! So dig out those old Judder costumes from a bygone era and come dressed as anyone from the past, present or future, or any other famous time traveller, and get in for just £3 all night!

May your day be full of romance, love or whatever else turns you on… ;) See you on 7th March!

NEXT CHANCE TO JUDDER:
FRIDAY DECEMBER 6th – JUDDER PIRATE CHRISTMAS

Hey there team Judder!

Well, I genuinely don’t know where to start… I’m still reeling after the impact of JUDDER’S HALLOWEEN SPECTACULAR which truly lived up to its name – it was our busiest Judder since record began, and the atmosphere & costumes were simply incredible! I had such an amazing night ad was delighted both by all the old faces who came out to party and all the new recruits who joined us. It really was just one huge party from the moment the doors opened until we finished at 4am! Huge thanks to DJ Smogo for playing 2 blinding sets, which he has kindly recorded for posterity and which can be found here:

http://www.mixcloud.com/cliff-barnes/halloween-judder-2013-the-two-pigs-cheltenham-set-1-of-2/

http://www.mixcloud.com/cliff-barnes/halloween-judder-2013-the-two-pigs-cheltenham-set-2-of-2/

As you’d expect, there are loads of great photos appearing already, and I have the first 200 (!!) on the Judder Facebook and in the Judder website gallery for your entertainment and delight. We are still expecting a bunch more from Michelle, our roving photographer par excellence – but if you have any photographs you’d like to share, you could win free entry to the next Judder! Just get in touch with us via the Facebook group, share and win!

And so, we have one more Judder left this year, and we plan to go out in swashbuckling santa style as we unleash our PIRATE CHRISTMAS JUDDER on Friday December 6th! There will be drinks offers aplenty, and xmas treats for all the naughty and nice girls and boys, and it’s just £3 entry if dressed as a pirate, in Christmas fancy dress, or a mash-up of both! Make sure you invite all your friends from Halloween and let’s see the year out in style!

If you can’t wait that long, then why not pop along to the Guildhall in Gloucester this Friday 15th November where I will be playing a special warm-up DJ set supporting Dreadzone. Should be a banging night out!

Oh, and keep your diary handy as we are about to announce the dates and themes for 2014 too!

See you soon!

NEXT CHANCE TO JUDDER:
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 1ST – JUDDER’S HALLOWEEN SPECTACULAR!

Hey there team Judder!

So, did you survive our post-apocalypse Judder on Friday? I think I just about managed to scrape through with all the other respirator-wearing gun-toting survivalists, and at least we had a kick-ass soundtrack to go with it courtesy of guest DJ Traumahound and our hard-working residents. The first few photos from the end of the world are online, and we are keenly anticipating a load more from Michelle, Judder’s in-house photo wiz, so keep an eye on the gallery!

Next up is the undisputed highlight of the calendar for us at Judder HQ – our Halloween Spectacular on Friday November 1st. Yet again we will be spending the week decorating the venue in full haunted house style, filling it with tricks and treats for you all. This year we are also opening an hour earlier *and* staying open an hour later, so for just £5 you get to party from 9pm – 4am, plus we’ll be doing shots for early birds, there’s a Hobloblin giveaway all night, and there will be offers on our new favourite cocktail, the MONSTER JAGER MEGABOMB!! Guest DJ for the night will be the return of DJ Smogo from Brighton, so start planning your costume and get ready for the best Halloween party in town!

If you’re looking for something to do between nown & then, I’m running a one-off night at the 2 Pigs this Friday, 11th October called BLEEPHAUS:ASSEMBLE! for anyone who is interested in building or hacking their own synths. It’s just £2 to get in, or £5 for a build-your-own synth kit, so pop along and make some noise! More info here: https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/520520561367596/

See all you lovable horrors soon!

NEXT CHANCE TO JUDDER:
FRIDAY OCTOBER 4th

Hey there Judder survivors!

We’re back from the future after a bang-tidy Robots Aliens and Astronauts Judder that saw me consume rather too much Jack Daniels’ and prance around in my best space-suit in a manner that made me wish the camera had never been invented! So far I’ve been lucky and avoided being photographed (although there are some great photos up online already) although I suspect that won’t last… Big thanks to Zaphod and Febs for emergency guest DJ duties and playing a couple of diverse sets featuring stuff I don’t think I’ve heard at Judder before (which really takes some doing..!). More photos coming soon, and if you have any to share, get in touch and you could win free entry to the next Judder!

On the subject of which, we’ll be preparing for the end of the world as we stage our POST APOCALYPSE JUDDER on Friday October 4th, so come dressed as Tank Girl, Mad Max or any other survivor and you’ll get discount entry. Plus our guest DJ is the return of the ever-marvellous DJ Traumahound so it’s already shaping up to be one of those atomic evenings!

If you can’t wait that long, there’s a couple of events to fill the void as my electronics side-project called temp0rary play 2 gigs in September, firstly this Friday 13th September at the 2 Pigs with support from Kenji Run, Hippy Milne and Cheyne Stokes, and then collaborating with the ever-angular Brown Torpedo headlining the Agent stage at FrogFest on the 20th September at the Frog & Fiddle.

Too busy for the world to end – see you soon!

NEXT CHANCE TO JUDDER:
Gloucester – FRIDAY AUGUST 16th
Cheltenham – FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 6th

Greetings Judder space cadets!

I think we can declare that experiment a raging success! Our JUDDER FOR SCIENCE was loads of fun with 2 banging sets from DJ Stodge (which you can catch on Soundcloud ), some awesome costumes, plenty of experimenting with our state-of-the-art eBay microscopes and a brilliant atmosphere all night! There are some truly fantiastic photos from our new resident photographer Michelle Midwinter up in the Judder gallery, along with some snaps from Charlie and myself that really capture the mayhem of the night!

So, our next Judder proper is Friday 6th September, which is our ROBOTS, ALIENS & ASTRONAUTS JUDDER with Guest DJ Miss Glitch joining us on the decks – as usual there will be free shots for early birds, and discount entry for all futuristic space dwellers, so get out your sparkly pants, don your tinfoil hat and join us for a night that’s sure to be out of this world!

And if you can’t wait that long, then don’t despair – we’re adding an extra Judder adventure to the calendar to make the most of the long summer nights! Yes, on Friday 16th August, we will be returning to Cafe Rene in Gloucester for another takeover night – the last one was off-the-hook crazy, and we’re very much looking forward to bringing the Judder arty vibe back to Gloucester again. See www.caferene.co.uk for more info

Still not enough for you? Well that’s okay, as I’m also doing a guest DJ slot at Shenanigans in London on Saturday August 31st. Very miuch looking forward to bringing all of the random with me for this one! More info at www.clubshenanigans.co.uk

NEXT CHANCE TO JUDDER:
FRIDAY AUGUST 2ND 2013

Hey there Judder crew,

Hope you’re all well and enjoying the summer now its had the good grace to show itself! And what a way to see in the summer our VICTORIAN STEAMPUNK JUDDER was! We were concerned that the heat might have stopped people strapping themselves into their corsets and donning their top hats, but we needn’t have worried – there were some *spectacular* costumes and outfits in attendance! I’ve already put my photos on the Judder website gallery, and there are more to come – and remember, if you share your pics with us you can get on the guestlist for our next Judder! Oh and whilst I remember, *huge* thanks to Matt Clanky from Kenji Run for stepping in and guest DJ-ing for us at short notice – he did an amazing job and we’ll be seeing him again in 2014!

So, looking forward, we’ve got not one, not two, but THREE chances for you to get on the Judder bus in August!

Firstly, Friday August 2nd is our JUDDER FOR SCIENCE!! with he return of popular guest DJ Stodge. We’ll be making sure there are plenty of things for you to experiment with, so dust off your lab coats – it’s reduced entry all night for mad scientists and any of their evil creations!

Then, on Friday 16th August, we return to Cafe Rene in Gloucester for another night of Judder on tour mayhem – the last time we did this was one of the best party atmospheres I’ve experienced as a guest DJ, so I’m really looking forward to bringing the madness back to the depths of Gloucester!

And then, on Saturday 31st August, I’ll be guest DJing at Shenanigans at Canal 125 in London with loads of other great DJs who know how to party! The theme is ‘One of our Dinosaurs is Missing’, so dinosaurs and cavement and women get extra love! More info can be found here:

https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/278767855596152/

If that’s not enough for you (!!) then my electronic A/V band are also doing 2 gigs in August too – headlining SwanFest at the Swan in Cheltenham on Saturday 3rd August (yes, I *know* it’s the day after Judder..!) and performing a large-scale collaborative installation piece with performance artist Kate Spence at The Wig in Birmingham on Friday 23rd August. See www.temp0rary.com for details.

Have a good summer and hope to see you for fun times soon!

FRIDAY JULY 5th 2013

Good day, distinguished Juddering ladies and Gentlemen!

Well, I’ve just about managed to wash the last bits of my costume off from what was an absolutely outstanding Comic Book Judder to celebrate our 10th Birthday! The evening was enormous fun from the moment we opened the doors and were mobbed by superheroes, partying right through until the very end with us! Huge thanks to the guys from Mostly Harmless, to Kitty Ribbons for the super-hot Catwoman burlesque performance, and of course to everyone who came and joined us, especially those who made an effort with awesome costumes and alter-egos! There are loads of photos up in the Judder gallery, and if you have more to share you can earn yourself free entry to July’s Judder!

Our next Judder will be on Friday 5th July, and by popular demand it’s the return of our Victorian Steampunk Judder! So tighten up your corsetry, polish your blunderbuss and join us for some adventures in an alternative future of busty damsels and moustachio’d exporers! Joining us on the decks will be the ever-popular DJ Fox, and we’ll be cranking out some special drinks offers for you too!

We’re also pleased to announce that on Friday 16th August, Judder have been invited to once again take over Cafe Rene in Gloucester for another night of anything goes mayhem (and we really *do* mean it – the last one was properly bonkers!) So come and see us out of our natural habitat, confusing and entertaining the good folk of Gloucester town!

Fare thee well until our next adventure!

FRIDAY JUNE 7th 2013

Greetings Judder lovers!

The Force was strong in that one! I’m still reeling from a fantastic STAR WARS JUDDER which had some of our best costumes and over-excited dancefloors of the year! The Light Sabre battles were particularly spectacular, and big thanks go to emergency DJ Kattallica for bringing an hour of filthy banging noise to the upstairs dancefloor! Photos are now up on the Judder site, and remember that you can get free entry next month if you share any of your own pictures for use in our gallery!

Our next Judder is an extra-spacial one, as we celebrate Judder’s 10th birthday with our COMIC BOOK JUDDER on Friday 7th June! There will be lots of additional giveaways for this event, and we are joined by the always-lovely and ever-random guest DJs from Norwich’s own Mostly Harmless! So it’s time to unlock your super-powers, wear your Y-fronts on the outside and join the biggest party this side of Krypton!

Look forward to seeing you all for our big party on the 7th June!

FRIDAY MAY 3rd 2013

Hey there Judder Rebels,

Well, it’s been a while but I think I am now all better after the zombie apocalypse… took a while to stop feeling like the living dead, mind you! The last Judder rocked very hard indeed with a wide and varied selection of reanimated members of society, all soundtracked by some very fine tunes, most notably a couple of banging sets from guest DJ M B Lanyon. Photos are now up on the Judder site, and remember that you can get free entry next month if you share any of your own pictures for use in our gallery!

So now we look forward – or rather, a long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away… on Friday 3rd May we will be holding our STAR WARS JUDDER! – and we’re delighted to be joined by Geoff Echo of Modulate and Mutate / Wendyhouse fame. There will be drinks promos and giveaways all night, and entry is just £3 if dressed as any Star Wars character, so dust off your light sabre, release your inner wookiee and represent the Empire or Rebels for a night of interstellar awesomeness!

May the, uh, Third be with you!

FRIDAY APRIL 5TH 2013

Hey there team Judder!

we trust you are keeping well, and are fully rested after our VIDEO GAMES JUDDER last week! You lot properly 1-upped the costumes and were in a real party mood, filling the dancefloor and getting all over our old games consoles from the moment we opened the doors! Huge thanks to Dr. J for guest DJ duties and bringing us 2 slamming sets! Photos are up in the Judder website gallery and on Facebook but I’m sure we missed some of the brilliant outfits, so if you have more photos to share, please send them our way and you could win free entry to the next Judder!

Talking of which, the next date in the diary is Friday 5th May for our ZOMBIE OUTBREAK JUDDER when we predict the dead shall roam the earth once more! Bringing the necromantic beats will be our guest DJ M B Lanyon, there will be free shots for early birds, sweets, treats and surprises aplenty so come and join us to party like the world is about to end!

And for those of youwanting to make it into a big weekender, the next day, my electronic A/V band are performing a one-off never to be repeated performance as headliners at the Tempting Failure festival in Bristol which is shaping up to be an unforgettable evening of outsider art and performance. Info and tickets available here.

FRIDAY MARCH 1ST 2013

Hey there Judder-folk!

Well, that was a splendid way to see in the new Year! Our first Judder of 2013 sure blew the dust off and seemed to get you all out of hibernation! We had a great night, with guest DJ Dan Cooper (and some mysterious man in a cape) throwing down some brutal tunes and the party atmosphere continuing until the wee small hours! Photos will be forthcoming, so keep your eyes out for those soon!

Right, there’s only the tiny month of February to get through until we get to do it all again for our VIDEO GAMES JUDDER on 1st March – we will be joined by guest DJ Dr. J who had the place jumping last time he came to visit, and as ever, entry is just £3 all night if you come dressed up, this time as your favourite video game character! We’ll also be dusting off some of thos classic consoles to keep you entertained between trips to the dancefloor and the bar!

Until next time, look forward to levelling-up with y’all then!

Can’t wait that long? See below!

Merry Yule, Judder fans!

Firstly, thanks to everyone who dressed up in their Christmas and Steampunk finery and joined us for our Victorian Christmas Judder! It was a splendid night with everyone well up for dancing away the winter chills! Thanks to A-B Riddims for guest DJ duties – photos are now up at the Judder Facebook and gallery – go see! And if you have any more photos you’d like us to share with the Judder masses, drop us an email on lee@judder.org or hit us up on Facebook!

So that’s it for Judder until 1st February 2013, when we are back with our VALENTINES MASQUERADE JUDDER which begins a year of awesome themes as selected by you, the Judder-going lovelies, and looks a little something like this:

1st FEBRUARY    Judder Valentine’s Masquerade Ball

1st MARCH    Video Games Judder

5th APRIL    Zombie Outbreak Judder

3rd MAY        Star Wars Judder

7th JUNE    Comic Book Judder

Keep an eye on the website as we’ll be confirming our guest DJs and drinks offers real soon!

Now, if February seems like an eternity away, don’t fret, as although Judder is taking a very well-earned break, there are other Judder-friendly events for you to enjoy between now and the end of the year!

First up, I’m DJing at a new event which is starting on Friday 21st December at the 2 Pigs called  “I <3 90’s” which pretty much tells you everything you need to know! I will be playing the best and worst of nineties music with no concerns for my own personal credibility as a DJ, so expect the finest and the cheesiest cuts from the decade that brought you grebo, rave, Britpop, grunge, and a lot of boy-bands! More info here.

Then, my live electronic A/V act, temp0rary, are off to the Frog & Fiddle for 2 gigs with Christmas sandwiched inbetween! On 22nd December we’re playing a noisy experimental set for the Mayan Apocalypse Survivors’ Party with Brown Torpedo, Oui Legionnaires, Japonika, Woosey, Galen and  other  noisy sorts – info here.

Then on Friday 28th December, we’re back again to play all our ‘pop songs’ at the Welcome Back Delta Christmas Party – sounds entirely like my idea of fun festive fare! Join the party here!

Merry Christmas one and all – and hope to see lots of you all at Judder in 2013!
