Gigs, new music and other fun stuff

First off THANK YOU to everyone that came down to the O2 show a couple of weeks ago. It genuinely was a LOT of fun and we got to play with a lot of other brilliant electronica based bands from Oxford. That and playing the tunes on that p.a. was pretty amazing. There should be some highlights from the night plus maybe even an interview on tomorrow night’s BBC Oxford Introducing. There should also be some pictures from the show up soon too.

So on to new ventures. On Saturday 21st October Oxjam takes over Oxford for 2 days of gigs around the town and we’re happy to say we’ll be playing not 1 but 2 shows on the same day. Crazy. Show times and locations are:

3:45pm – O3 Gallery
6:45pm – Modern Art Oxford

It’s great to see Oxford really get involved in Oxjam and we’re really happy to be a part of it considering how much fun last year‘s show was. Go to the gigs page for more info. Here’s a link to the official Oxford Oxjam site.

We are working on some new music (including and ACE collaboration with Death of Hifi and Asher Dust), a couple of which you would have heard at the O2 Academy gig if you were there. There’s still some stuff to finish off so we’re not to sure on when it’ll be out but hopefully soon. Follow twitter for more regular updates.

There is also one more HUGE thing that we’re close to confirming. I don’t mean to tease (ok, maybe a bit) but trust me, it’s pretty immense…

Oxjam @ The Oxford Castle: THANK YOU!!! [Update]

It’s safe to say that the gig was a genuine success which to be honest I’m still a bit amazed about. All of the feedback so far has been incredibly positive and there was really a great atmosphere. In total the gig raised £416.57 for Oxfam which is just brilliant and Dan and I are just amazed with everyone’s generosity. I’ve been told that I’ve been saying thank you a little bit too much but we wanted to put together one last post to say Thank You to everyone that helped us out:

The Bands:
The Half Rabbits, Phantom Theory, The Prohibition Smokers Club, Helena, Swindlestock and Kt and Ky,

Sarah Mayhew (from The Oxford Castle for letting us do the gig at the castle in the first place) and Helen Statham (for letting us move the gig to The O3 Gallery with one day to go), and The Real China.

Mel Skinner, Sarah Kenway, Ashleigh Toll, Mez Flint for minding the bar and helping us tidy up afterwards (+ the rest of the Oxjam crew!)

Stu Smith, Mark Wilden, Neil Smith, for loaning us the audio equipment

And everyone that braved the rain to come along, listen to some great music and donate!

There are some pictures up on the pictures page and Dan Paxton has some up on his Flickr profile. There may even be some video soon too. Dan and I have already started talking about whether or not we’ll do it again. We shall see….

Please keep supporting Oxfam and Oxjam and good luck to anyone else that’s organising an Oxjam gig this year!

Ian and Dan

Oxjam @ Oxford Castle [Update]

This is very exciting. Dan and I have been thinking about putting on an Oxjam gig somewhere in Oxford and the lovely people at The Oxford Castle have said that we can put on there as part of their summer acoustic nights on Wednesday 25th August from 7pm to 10pm. Win!

Lined up to play are:

‘How much will this wondrous event cost?’ you ask. Well, nothing. That’s right entry will be FREE. But we will collecting money for Oxfam and our fund raising target is £100 so any and all donations will be very much appreciated. We’re also hoping to arrange some food and drink promos but that’s still tbc. We’ve just had confirmation that The Real China will be offering discounts on cocktails and food for everyone that donates. Isn’t that nice of them?

Here’s the Oxjam event page. See you there.
