Out and About this weekend…

Out and About this weekend…

This week’s been a crazy one; with my first four days at the new job and something on every night of the week. There’s been the occasional post here on FatKidOnFire and even few on Facebook – so apologies to everyone wondering why it’s gotten so quiet!

Hopefully as the weeks progress and I settle in things will balance out a bit more. And don’t forget we’ve got FKOF2.0 coming in the next month or so! In the meantime, I figured it was worth a quick post about the few awesome events going down this weekend that had caught my eye…

It seems most of this weekend’s awesome events are happening tonight – so I’ve picked the three I’m most stoked on. If you’re in Birmingham, Leeds or London you’re all set. If not, sorry and check back next time (or drop me an email with your event’s details)! First off, FKOF fam Justify with the latest event from the KRYPT outfit:

After a couple of months away Birmingham’s KRYPT is back on 9th Nov at Birmingham’s Club PST. For those that know about us, we only deal in the deep, dark and minimal dubstep sound – and definitely keep it forward thinking.

Turns out KRYPT are brining some other FKOF fam to the party:


Also on the night there’ll be support from Birmingham’s Krypt Residents:

  • Justify (Krypt/FatKidOnFire)
  • Laney (Slime Recordings)
  • Sake (Distinct FM)

Admission’s FREE before 11pm and £5 after. No presale links, just £5 OTD. Nice and simple! You can find Club Pst on 71 Lombard St, B12 0QU.

Big up to everyone who reaches and I’ll definitely be at one in the future!

Next up is my friends (both new and old) up in Leeds with the MisDigest outfit…

“MisDigest brings you the best of underground and newly surfacing talent, with a diverse range of eclectic DJs and producers.

Following our sell-out debut, we are back and we’re bringing together pioneers of the garage scene, both old and new”.

After a storming debut event with Compa on the headline slot (watch out for a special FKOF exclusive on that one in the coming days), MisDigest are back with another leading bass music/ garage event.

Noodles | Sully | Walton | NDread

Set times are:

Broka & Quinston 10-11pm
Eyre 11-12pm
Walton 12-1am
Groove Chronicles Noodles 1-2am
Sully 2-3am
NDread 3-4am
Broka & Quinston 4-Close

Special mention to Eyre who I’ve not seen since Sixth form, good to hear she’s mixing dubstep these days. Hope you smash it Steph!

£8 tickets from Skiddle here (but be quick, they’re only on sale for another hour), Facebook event page here and map to the Musiquarium (Wyther Lane, LS5 3BT) here.

Last but not least, Skream’s last London gig in 2012.

On Friday 9th November Skreamizm makes its London debut at Brixton auditorium Electric. This will be Skream’s final London show of 2012 and will take a back-to-basics approach: a dark room, a massive soundsystem, an extended set and a focus firmly on the music. Rather than staying in one place, they’ll find Skream taking the crowd on a tour through the music he loves.

If you’re not reaching this then I don’t know what can be done for you. Tickets here or here. Brixton Electric here. See you in the dark…

Peace, love and respect.
