Yep.

This is GOOD! Because now I actually have time to write and record my album AND practice a set. Also design my costume.

Yes. If people fancy getting the Hey! Fever!, it's this Saturday.

Tis worth mentioning that while it's an outdoor show, the Bar One beer garden has state of the art awning technology to protect everyone should it rain (which it darn well better not!).

In other Derby news, the Apples For Discos nights at Vines are going from strength to strength. Their last gig with The Rosie Taylor Project, Red Shoe Diaries and Al Judkins was the bee's knees and on the 22nd of this very month they've got Moofish Catfish, those darn MexiKid Homies and a new Deirdre project called Of Mice And Mental Arithmetic. Cool huh?

And in other, other news, there's a Snug Social this Friday, so get your dancing clogs on, tie little bells to your elbows and head on down to the Rockhouse.

3 things happening in Derby. Has to be some kind of record.

Why are they running Rachel Alexandra in the Oaks and not the Derby? I must say I'm a bit disappointed to see that Rachel Alexandra is stick'n to the Oaks instead of trying the boys in the Derby. I absolutely think she has the guts to go against the boys in the Derby, she is just incredible, and I'd love to see her race the boys. Your thoughts? Are you a fan?

It's a question that hangs like a dark cloud over the city of Derby.

Hey, Derby anoraks. See Sheffield thread for discussion involving Derby. If you'd like.

Edit/Update: we'll be in The Brunswick from about 9.15 this eve (Sat 5th) for a couple, having done some boozing in Burton.

Paging Derby Anoraks to a blog post about pubs and stuff. I'm sure I've been told this already, but where else is good other than the Brunswick? Post a comment on here:

My comment awaits moderation, but this is what I put:

Derby has a ludicrous amount of good beer pubs for its size.

In the same area as the Brunswick there’s the Alexandra Hotel – haven’t been here but friends recommend it.

In the middle of Darley Park there is a lovely Sam Smiths pub, The Abbey, which is absolutely perfect for summertime drinking as you can take drinks out into the park.

Then in the town centre there is:

The Flowerpot (wide range of guest ales, nice-but-small garden, decent cheap food)

The Dolphin (ancient, hosts an excellent beer festival every summer)

The Brewery Tap and The Greyhound (both run by the Derby Brewing Company – http://www.derbybrewing.co.uk/ – both sell “racks” of five 1/3-pint taster glasses accompanied by locally sourced cheese)

The Silkmill (recently refurbished, offers a free cheeseboard on the back bar!)

Five Lamps (even more recently refurbished – good beers – I think it’s Everards – but slightly confused as if it can’t quite decide what kind of pub it wants to be)

That’s the main ones that I have experience with, but there’s also the Falstaff (another brewery pub that I have yet to visit – http://www.falstaffbrewery.co.uk/), The Exeter Arms (near the Brewery Tap – only been there once but it seemed nice) and a few more, I think.

I’d definitely say it was worth a trip.

Mine awaits moderation too. (Don't they realise how moderate we Anorakers are anyway?)
Derby pubs. Right next to the Brunswick is the Alex (Alexandra) which has some great beers in great condition. And some interesting railway memorabilia. The Falstaff is most unusual, a little hard to find and replete with real ales, including its own brews. The Royal Standard is also great (as long as you like the light, airy type place) for the Derby Brewing Company beers. The Flower Pot is good with an enormous mix too. There are certainly many more, as well.
Then I remembered to add:
Also The Smithfield is rarely mentioned, but is worth a visit for a good selection of beers in a nice location.

Ah yes, I was trying to think of the name of The Smithfield for ages! Good call.

Pete, come to Derby for a Rack! I haven't had one in ages but they're brilliant. They even do a Wine Rack now too. For the ladies.

Next time I sit down for a jar with that moopind, I'll try and sort out a date for it.

Double yay. An entire rack of yays, in fact. The Royal Standard and the Brewery Tap are, of course, the same place.

Er, no. Not really. It's more Macclesfield way. It is in Derbyshire though, granted.
