If you're on the hunt for a proper good night out, head to Sneaky Pete's this Saturday 3 February for an extra special set put on by community radio station EHFM. Headlining is radio sensation and host of NTS' One Glove Breakfast Show, Macca, whose playful curation of leftfield disco, jazz, and soul is precisely what is needed for these grey, stormy days.

Support on the night comes from EHFM resident and DJ Ot Pascoe and EHFM head honcho Saint Sunday, who bring even more eclectic pop, disco and world music cuts into a gorgeous celebration of indie radio and dance music. And if all this sounds super up your street, EHFM are currently taking applications for new shows by women and people of marginalised genders, for a one-off live slot on their radio station this International Women's Day.
