Films and Live Music at the Side Cinema.

The Side Cinema, The Side, Newcastle - near Quayside - is currently running a 6 week series of Films and live music. All are on Thursdays commencing at 7.30pm admission £8. Tomorrow's program, the 2nd, may be of interest to our site visitors.
DATE: 22 MAY
FILM: BLACK CAT WHITE CAT
(1998) 127 minutes, Emir Kusturica
A riotous mix of farce, romance and crime. Set within a community of Gypsies it tells a story of dodgy deals, family ties, young love and magical occurrences. Crammed with spectacle, incident and the music of Emir Kusturica’s famous travelling gypsy band.
MUSIC: SIDE CAFE ORKESTAR
 Live music from Side Café Orkestar. An affectionately prepared blend of East European Gypsy tunes, complete with raucous and badly pronounced Serbian vocals, and Gypsy Swing.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
