Featured live performances from (in no particular order):

Mark Norton - Although best known for his saxophonic talents with the mighty Gene Drayton Unit and a host of other bands, tonight Mr Norton will be leaving his horn at home and entertaining us with a sparkling spoken word set.

dogs&stuff - Back in July of 2006 dogs&stuff first played at Scaledown, now they're back to delight us with their quirky, left-handed tales of the world's lesser known bi-beasts, dirty earthy colours, shiny things and plantlife.

Martin White - Mr White has played at Scaledown both solo and with his Mystery Fax Machine Orchestra. We welcome him back as he returns with more accordion and ukulele masterpieces of mirth.

Hong Kong In The 60s - Taking their cue from old Oriental pop, classic AM radio and the baroque melancholy of groups like Blonde Redhead and Broadcast. The band play hypnotic lullabies through a filter of cheap keyboards and guitars.

John Ellis - Founder member of classic punk band The Vibrators and ex Strangler, Mr Ellis will be playing at Scaledown his superb electro soundtrack pieces using a looping pedal, ebow, and laptop.
