Upcoming mod events / Brisbane Mod + Soul Weekender 2018
« on: March 28, 2018, 05:50:13 AM »
Get ready!
Sh'mon. Boogaloo. Get out on the floor and show 'em what you can do.
The Brisbane Mod Soul Weekender is back again and hitting harder than a Funk Brothers snare drum. It's happening during the glorious Brisbane winter with 3 local clubs uniting and joining forces to give what promises to be something rather special.
Spanning across 2 nights and 2 daytime events, the BMSW2018 will be hosted by the good folk from Soul In The City (Brisbane's premier Northern Soul night), Watch Your Step! (Brisbane's original 6TS dance party) and Nowhere To Run (Brisbane bi-monthly 60's club night and weekly radio show).
Catch the action, supplied from original vinyl 45's straight out of the swingin' sixties. You'll hear varied and diverse sounds from our local spinners and esteemed interstate guest DJs. A focus on what moves and grooves with plenty of classic Mod, Soul, Garage, Rhythm and Blues, Ska and Funk sounds all weekend long.
Your dance venue for both nights is The Black Bear Lodge found in the heart of Brisbane's Fortitude Valley, supplying a world class sound system that'll knock your socks off while you shimmy and shake up late. We are also running a special daytime event on the Saturday at Bloodhound Bar in Fortitude Valley with a record and vintage clothing fair, come and soak up the sounds and fashion while you recover.
Running from Friday the 20th of 'til Sunday the 22nd July, this is one weekend long party not to miss!

Saw this mentioned in the MC main site ( and there are some really stunning images, the best A&H collection so far.

After taking a careful look, I've purchased the two prints below (the top one was apparently the image used for the JS's shopping bags), that can match together on our study's walls IMO. One of the main assets of Art & Hue is that you can choose among a lot of colour variations and 3 sizes:

I've had the bottom John Stephen print on my wall for a few months now, but in the red and blue and very happy with it, some others on their site that are tempting too!

Ive seen 1 of these in the flesh and you can't go wrong at this price.
Cheers for the heads up Ross,ordered one in the Black Friday sale for 60 quid,the shipping to Oz bumps it up a fair bit,but still a great price and they look good in the pics on their site.

Bill, I have one of the JTG raincoats. Very nice, unfussy and slim fitting. Worth the money mate imho.
Cheers Mark.

Anyone on here got one of the JTG raincoats by chance?  Had a few bits off them over the years(suits and knits)and all been good.Weather is usually pretty warm where i am in Oz so don't get much call for overcoats but a lightish raincoat would come in handy from time to time,so wouldn't mind a review/recommendation before i take the plunge as long way to send back!Cheers!

Cheekee Petes,The Phoenix, The Albany,Sols Arms,White Hart Southall,Bush Hotel,Adam + Eve,Le Beat Route,Whisky a-go-go but plenty of other short lived great nights.

Has anybody taken a punt on a pair of these yet?

Possibly the closest design I have seen to the trainers that Jimmy wears in the Who 1973 Quadrophenia album pictures. .
Yeah,their Instagram feed is full of references and pics of Chad Kennett who played Jimmy in the pics.
