Bloggerpalooza Rocks the Manchester Blog Awards 2009

That’s right folks, Bloggerpalooza is back, this time to make sure that the good folks attending the Manchester Blog Awards ceremony at Band on the Wall on 21st October will have some good tunes in between readings and awards. That is to say, a few local DJ’s, as organised by the Cahoona boys, have brought a motley crüe (ha ha, see what I did there?) of local MP3 bloggers together to play some songs for you.

You’ll be treated to the (not so) smooth DJ stylings of:

We might even treat you to an airing of “Girls Girls Girls.” We also might not.

If you can’t make it down on the night, we’re told the whole thing will be webcast so you can give us a listen anyway. More details when we have them.

Bloggerpalooza + Sounds From the Other City Wrapup

Well, it’s been quite a day and a reasonable success with our moblogging experiement. There’s a few kinks to work out but you can scroll down and see a few photos. The proper review will be up in a few days. We were dead impressed with Moulettes – enough to buy a CD – and we will be looking out for upcoming shows.

Cheers to everyone at Bloggerpalooza for setting up quite a special event and letting us take part. We really enjoyed our live DJ’ing debut and we hope everyone liked the tunes. For those of you who just couldn’t get to a computer to hear it streamed live, we’ll post the set sometime in the next couple of days.

Mobile Blogging from The Indie Credential!

Some of you may have noticed the weird posts appearing and disappearing tonight. Sorry. We’ve been attempting to set up moblogging so that we can post directly from the festivals we’re going to this spring and summer. At some point we’ll get it all configured properly so we can add commentary to the posts, but in the meantime, if you want to see Bloggerpalooza live as it unfolds, or Sounds from the Other City, keep checking in with us on 4th May!

Bloggerpalooza is part of this weekend’s Futuresonic Festival in Manchester and takes place at the Contact Theatre on Oxford Road on Sunday 4th May from 6pm onwards where some of the city’s finest music bloggers, and us, will be spinning some of their favourite records until midnight. We’re on from 6-7pm; bottom of the bill, we know, but we’ve never DJ’ed before so it could well be a disaster. Come along by all means, or alternatively, listen online from the Futuresonic website. Other bloggers taking part are Yer Mam, Cosmic Disco, Best Foot Forward, Shoplifters and Black Country Grammar.
