Lincoln, home to the new cool?

Posted on February 23, 2009


Still slightly battered from the weekend. It’s surely a sign that I’m getting old (or need to start visiting the gym).

Friday night saw me dashing up the A1 in the company of three music industry types to a gig in Lincoln (on paper sounds like the things nightmares are made of but actually was much fun).

The Lincoln club night called Moda is apparently the next big thing; it won Mixmag’s 4th Best Club of 2008. Run by Andy George and Jaymo – two lads barely into the twenties who’ve already attracted the attention of Annie Mac and Kissy Sell Out.

Around four times a year the host the parties at The Engine Shed (sorry Nick, you were right, it isn’t called the Shed) which holds up to 1600 people. They’ve cracked onto a great way of tapping into Lincoln’s burgeoning student population and indeed, manage to attract kids from all over the north west.
