    Sounds ace, will check for sure.

    Hey Danny

    Good stuff - I didn't know about the Hackney Picturehouse thing.

    A bit awkward for me as the workers there are asking people not to attend until they get paid the London Living Wage...

    Well, I guess at least it's not a film, and it's a community event. I'll be there for definite anyway. Do you know my mate Ritchie? (Sikh guy). He's one of the organisers and been doing some great tribute shows. If you come it means I'll have someone else to talk to!

    I'll see how I get on.

    Richie is cool, I was thinking the other day about the incredible "big people" events he used to run at The Others on Manor Road near me...
