A new venue on decidedly dodgy Slater Street, The Shipping Forecast is hitting all the right buttons in its cosy basement venue. So far, we’ve seen an inventive and eclectic parade of DJs and indie-electro and folky acts, and, in a city with no Korova (sob) this might be its illegitimate offspring. Gilles Peterson rocked it recently, while the cosy upstairs bar is a popular spot hosting NuNorthern Soul nights.
