New London Gig: Singers Of Twitter II – Oct 6th!

September 21st, 2009 | No Comments | Categories: Geek · gig dates |

After the huge success of the last ‘Singers Of Twitter’ gig at Darbucka last month, we’ve got another one coming up! Yay!

We’ll be back at Darbucka, and this time, it’ll feature Ben Walker AKA @ihatemornings out of Twitter, as the musical sandwich filling in between the gluten-free bread slices of the ever-wonderful Lloyd Davis on first and lovely Lobelia and I on at the end! Hurrah! It’s on Tuesday Oct 6th, doors at 7pm, music from 7.30, at Darbucka World Music Bar, on St John’s Street in Clerkenwell, London.

Ben Walker, in case the name sounds familiar, wrote ‘The Twitter Song‘ AKA, ‘you’re no-one if you’re not on twitter. Here it is:

He’s amazing, funny, and recently sang a song called ‘Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall‘ to… Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall! Truly a magical achievement. Go and have a listen to more of him at

Just before the first ‘singers of twitter‘ gig (but unbeknownst to me), Lloyd uploaded a lovely lil’ collection of him singing some of his fabulous 30s/40s songs to his website, so I blogged about it over at – you can see his post about them on Lloyd’s website.

And then Lobelia and I – this will, pretty much without a shadow of a doubt – be Lo’s last gig before @baby_flapjack arrives on the scene. So bring your friends, for an unmissable night out.

Tickets are £7 and £5 concessions again (and if you’re coming to see Michael Manring and I the night after, you count as a concession!)  – put it in your diary and tell your friends!

    Last time I saw these guys it was the best gig I’d seen in years. There’s not many times you’ll go to a gig and here such a varied but consistently high quality bunch of music and musicians. Also, the food in Darbucka is amazing.

    The price is so low as to be offensive. Anyone living in London or nearby better go, as I’m too far away too and it will pain me to see people who could go miss out!
