Eighty Six out and about over Easter

There's only a few weeks left until Easter so we thought it's about time we let you know what we've got planned!

We're very pleased to inform you that we've got two events over the Easter weekend, not only that but it's a bit of an Outlaw's Yacht Club double header. Our regular monthly Friday over in Leeds falls on Good Friday, we're honoured to have Martin Brew making the short trip over the Pennines with us and we'll be joined there by our good friend Kristan Caryl as well.

On Easter Sunday Joe and Craig from Outlaw's are making the reverse journey to join us at The Beagle in Chorlton for our first Manchester event of the year. As well as running the best bar in Leeds, Joe and Craig also run the monthly Joe's Bakery night there. Here's a mix the guys did a couple of months ago for Balearic Social Radio:

Both should be great nights so if you're around on either side of the pennines please pop in to see us.
