I know there are a lot of Dexy's fans out there, so I'm guessing the Close Up event will be of interest for anyone in the Manchester area.
The concept is from writer/DJ Dave Haslam (who actually DJ'd my last Outta Sight club night) – he will be hosting nights where you get up close and personal with musicians, poets, artists and actors discussing their life and work, the first of those being Kevin Rowland, taking place at the Green Room in the city centre.
It takes place on Thursday 11th March, with tickets £9 in advance. Next on the list is Mark E. Smith on Saturday 20th March, which should also be something special. I'm hoping for John Cooper Clarke at a future event, especially if he waxes lyrical about his Twisted Wheel days.
