South Eats London May 2nd

Friday 2nd May, South Eats London are at the Deptford Arms (52 Deptford High Street) for a night of 'Post-election fun... featuring the hotbrass exuberance of Danny Fontaine and the Horns of Fury, grimy London ballads from Joseph and the Jellied Eels and cracked lilting poetry from Gabi Garbutt and the Breadstealers. Plus Live Karauke (yes,that's karaoke AND ukuleles) and the burning of the Wicker Mayor,whoever that may be".

Since I started playing the uke all of of two months ago and strumming along with the Brockley Ukulele Group (B.U.G), the Karauke naturally intrigues me - presumably it entails a uke player banging out the backing track for somebody to warble over. Come to think of it that is pretty much what we do with B.U.G. as we murder versions of New Order, Radiohead and Bright Eyes songs.
