The Plugg (in association with Fred Perry) returns to OPEN, here in Norwich, on Friday 6th June for their 2nd birthday shindig with BBC 6 Music’s Gilles Peterson headlining. As you know, The Plugg is part of the Dogfish/Catfish/Sevenwolves family, created by us and some close friends to deliver a unique fusion of club night meets live music event.
With the Brazilian World Cup literally round the corner and Gilles being a huge football fan let alone having so many connections to not only Brazil (more on that in a bit) but also every corner of the musical globe with his worldwide show it seemed like a natural fit, the icing on the cake being he kicked off the first ever Plugg event at OPEN back in 2012…
To offer a more sophisticated soundtrack to the world cup, Gilles has created his own album, recorded over in Brazil and stacked full of summer gems. We were lucky enough to catch a sneak preview a few weeks back at the album launch in London and the vibes were lively, making us even more hyped for the Norwich gig. The album Sonzeira - Brasil Bam Bam Bam is available now on vinyl from all good record shops and by that we mean Soundclash Records on St Benedicts Street, and is also available to download via iTunes. Check out the making of the album here.
You may have also noticed that Fred Perry are rocking a world cup collection with their polo shirts this season, as you would expect from us we’ve got you covered and are stocking these across Dogfish and Sevenwolves along with all the other Fred Perry goodness from their summer collection for 2014, including some gems for the ladies down in the Catfish basement.
So The Plugg caught up with Mr Peterson a few weeks back as part of their Plugg Show on Future Radio, chatting about everything from the London Marathon to Acid House and his new album. If you’ve not already checked out the interview you can stream it here:
Tickets are £15 in advance and available from Dogfish, Sevenwolves, Soundclash Records or the OPEN Venue in Norwich, if you’d rather buy online then head over to here.
