The Dose – where to get your dopamine hit this weekend – September 9/10.

Some of you may have noticed that things have been pretty quiet here for a while – sorry about that but I do have a bunch of reviews to get up from the last month or so over the next few weeks for you.  Also there is something very exciting news coming soon…

But this weekend is kicking off early with Jake Stokes and the Smoking Barrels tonight at the Bristol.  After seeing them at the end of their last tour in February I am looking forward to braving the weather and getting my dancing shoes on.  Tonight is their EP launch so I am expecting to hear a whole lot more original material.  Although in saying that I really hope they play this song.

Saturday night involves some pretty tough choices but you will find me at Valhalla checking out Black Alpine and guests – mainly because one of the guest bands is The Gentleman Callers who I saw for the first time at the Battle of the Band final and have been wanting to see again ever since.  If that doesn’t look like your thing then I would suggest that you pop along to Cavern Club after 10pm and check out their new covers band Wink – I had a lot of fun at their last gig.

And as always check out the free’n’cheap list for a range of other things to do over the weekend.  Don’t let the weather stop you from getting your dopamine hit.
