Advance tickets for The Get Down – A Halloween Adventure


Before I get into the listings for this weekend, major thanks to everyone who came out to Flash last Friday and celebrated Katrina Mir‘s birthday with us! What an incredible night in the Green Room! I don’t think we’ve had a better night a Flash in all the years we’ve been played there. Thanks also to the whole team at Flash, to the management for booking us, and to all the bar and security staff for making sure everything went smoothly. We can’t wait to do it again! For those who couldn’t make it, we recorded the whole night, five hours of pure vibe served up fresh from the wax by me, Andy Grant, Ramirez and Katrina Mir.


If you don’t feel like making the trip out into the woods for The Get Down this weekend, there’s plenty of amazing events closer to home to keep you grooving through the weekend.
