Calling all music fans! Come along to The Stag at Mayfield to help us celebrate real music!

The Double Up Lounge is a night where you’ll hear DJs spin all vinyl sets like nowhere else in Newcastle!
You’ll hear the exotic, the rockin’, the smokin’ and the wild sounds of the original blues, rhythm & soul, afrobeat, rockabilly, popcorn, jazz, ska & rocksteady! Sounds coming from as far as Chicago, New Orleans, Nigeria, Maitland and Jamaica!

So grab a bunch of your mates, and join us over a beer as we enjoy well-loved classics, and discover never-before-heard gems! Hosted by DJs Dan Phelan & Big Juz Moon with guest DJs each month.

The choice is yours: come along or we risk “Leaving the next generation with nothing but recycled, digitally-sampled techno-grooves, quasi-synth rhythms, pseudo-songs of violence-laden gangsta-rap, acid pop, and simpering, saccharine, soulless slush. Depart now and you forever separate yourselves from the vital American legacies of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Jimmy Reed, Memphis Slim, Blind Boy Fuller, Louie Jordon, Little Walter, Big Walter, Sonnyboy Williamson I and II, Otis Redding, Jackie Wilson, Elvis Presley, Lieber and Stoller, and Robert K. Weiss.” (Elwood Blues)

On the second Thursday of every month.

7.30-10.30pm

This is an 18+ event.
