Well this gig has come and gone...great little night this one! In fact it was a most enjoyable weekend all round.
Flevans got in Friday afternoon, we got a few beers in, a bit of food and headed down to the venue.
Noel played some cracking tunes for us after Beckett did some warming up and some sound engineering to get the monitors working, and the man Flevans killed it at the end with a booty shaking selection of funk, soul and beats.
As is the usual story, Richie and Kev and his lovely assistant did a smashing job with live visuals.
The aftermath resulted in a glorious score of food from a late night eatery on the Ormeau Road, and a beer round in Andy's.
Big hooray for Flevans in general.
Massive F*ck You to Ryanair, who are thieves. Boycott 'em.

Gloriously catchy songs, infectious hooks and dancefloor-delighting beats from the multi-talented instrumentalist, composer, producer and sometime vocalist.
Flevans began making music in his home town of Brighton using a 4 track cassette recorder on which he’d spend hours looping breaks and hooks to create tracks. It was on the back of a demo created solely using this and a 10 second sampler that Tru Thoughts initially snapped him up, recognizing his innate knack for crafting irresistibly infectious hooks, and commissioning a number of EPs and an album. After a string of sold out 12″ singles, Tru Thoughts released the highly successful ‘Make New Friends’ album in 2004. Combining disco and funk with cut and paste sampling sensibilities and infectious basslines, the album - a collection of Flevans’ EP singles - was instantly likeable and irresistibly danceable. It proved very popular on the so called ‘electric-soul’ scene, with the piano tinged, disco infused “The Notion” scoring a place in the Unabombers’ highly respected Electric Souls Vol. 3 compilation.
