Wed 25 Apr / One Deck Wednesdays with DJ Andy Smith @ Electrik / 8pm-1130pm
Andy formed the backbone of Portishead’s debut album with his encyclopaedic knowledge of music to sample, and was the band’s tour DJ. Nowadays he’s known as a go to authority for the finest in fifties R&B, Northern soul, ska and rockabilly, but he hasn’t left the soul, hip hop, reggae, jazz and disco far behind. A hero to many.
Tickets: Free entry
