Soulcialism Fourthiversary

Soulcialism. Four years on. You've come a long way, baby.

Friday night at the White Eagle.

There's gonna be all your normal Soulcialism goodies - cheap booze, great music, hot sweaty dancing. Add in a free CD of hot Soulcialist newies, and some lovely little confectionaries from some of our pals and regulars, and you've got a sugar-rushed beer-addled whisky-soaked soul-thrillin' evening of sweat and dirt.

Here's the tracklist for the new CD. Hope you want one. Just ask at the DJ booth - err - table - err - tables-put-together, and we'll hook you up:

Aretha Franklin - Rough Lover
The Vontastics - Day Tripper
TSU Tornados - Getting the Corners
Chris Clark - Love's Gone Bad
