NYLPM gets a smattering of mail every day concerning upcoming events, gigs etc. I’m going to try and actually mention some of them. First we have Plug n Play, a radically democratic club night from the people at Gabba.net, happening on Sunday at Public Life in East London. You bring a laptop and your music and, well, plug it in and play it.

And then there’s this:


I am currently filming an independent documentary on an all-girl punk rock band called The Lillettes. Based on the south coast, with their distinctive look, attitude and unrelenting Rock ‘n’ Roll sound they are – without doubt – destined for greatness. I’ve filmed many bands and musicians over the years but none have been such a pleasure to film live as The Lillettes.

On Friday 24th May at around 8.30pm they will be playing at The Bull and Gate, Kentish Town, and meeting with a record executive who is keen to discuss their future. This is The Lillettes’ first performance in London and I would hate for you to miss the opportunity to see a gig that will be talked about for years to come.

I hope to see you on Friday (I will be the stressed looking man with the camera!)”

Unfortunately Big Brother 3 is more important than the future of rock and roll, but I thought I’d let you know.
