Midlands Mod Alldayer
Birmingham is synonymous with the Mod Scene with both the Spencer Davis Group and the Move just two of the excellent bands to hail from the second city in the sixties. Throughout the eighties and nineties it was a hotbed for the Mod scene with clubs like the Outrigger and we made regular visits from the Capitol to enjoy the fun.
We return on May bank holiday to a fantastic venue in the City centre right next to retro shop Urban Village at the old Custard Factory in Digbeth.
All events take place at the fabulous www.70-eight.com which looks very sixties space age (check out the gallery), with three floors and two rooms of music and tasty sound systems. The evening event hosts DJ’s from all over the UK along with NUTS regulars Pid and Rob Bailey.
The FREE daytime event includes a market, open decks DJ session and scooter run and competition kindly sponsored by gransportscooters.com
Drop us a line if you want a stall or fancy playing some records in the afternoon.
