The first Joe Bloggers gig fast approaches and we're honoured to be involved. Hopefully some of you reading this can make it down to Dingwalls in Camden and say hello to members of Team FG. And of course, Flying With Anna and The Blue Walrus too. To try to help you in that quest, we're giving away at least 2 tickets to the gig below. Maybe more if we're feeling generous, so enter away.
First though, some line up news. Since our Joe Bloggers announcement, a DJ set from Disclosure has been added - one of whom is also in recent Surfacing alumni Auction. Unfortunately, Alpines have pulled out in order to support The Naked & Famous and have been replaced by Cosmo Jarvis.
HOW TO WIN:
To win 2 tickets to Joe Bloggers at Dingwalls on May 19th, you can do one of two things. Either tweet me (@saamFG) simply stating "Joe Bloggers". Or if you're not on Twitter, please add a comment below with your name and email address.
The competition closes at 11.59pm on Tuesday. Winner(s) will be contacted shortly after - if lots of people enter then we may well give away a couple more tickets. And by tickets, I mean guestlist spots so you don't have to worry about post!
If you don't win, then hopefully you'll still like to come along - it's just £6 in advance (more on the door) to see 5 bands.

Disclosure (DJ set) - "Croydon brothers, who effortlessly combine the 2-step garage rhythms and dubstep basslines of their locale with their own rich musical heritage of soul, jazz and 90s hip hop."
