Club NME: TicketWeb chats to Beech

So, Club NME is a shindig that happens every Friday at KOKO, so with that in mind, we want to get to the bottom of your ultimate Friday night… Josh Beech, here are your questions!

What do you usually do on Friday nights when you’re not providing the entertainment at Club NME?
I like hitting up local dive bars in LA and shooting pool with my pals. I’m not normally someone for big clubs anymore but I’m really excited to be playing club NME tonight. I’ve got a lot of fond memories at club NME in my late teens.

What’s the closest you’ve got to a weekend that could have been straight out of The Hangover?
I’ve got stories that make The Hangover look tame!!!!

What are your ultimate Friday night party jams?
I mix up my party jams quite a lot, I’m always getting into new music and new bands but currently these tunes make me wanna rage…
Dead Sara- Weatherman
Lower Than Atlantis- Here We Go
Jake Bugg- What Doesn’t Kill You
James Brown- Get Up Offa That Thing
Jay-Z- Tom Ford
Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons- Beggin’
Nirvana- Negative Creep
What are you drinking – do you have a tipple of choice?
Jack and ginger

How long do you spend looking in the mirror before you’re ready to hit the town?
I don’t know, I don’t look in the mirror very much, I guess a few seconds as I’m walking past it on my way out the door.

You’re at a club, where can we expect to find you – loitering at the bar, throwing some shapes on the dance floor, chatting someone up, sitting in a corner?
Throwing some epic shapes on the dance floor in between going to the bar.

You’ve just left the club and you’re looking for a 4am snack, what’s your go-to post-club grub?
Meat and chips.

Who’s the most famous person you’ve ever spotted on a night out?
I live in LA so there are “famous” people out and about quite often. One story that sticks in my mind, I went to see an intimate performance reunion of Run DMC and Aerosmith and ended up partying with Jim Carrey which was pretty cool.

What’s your best/worst journey home story? Ever got stranded in the middle of nowhere?
My worst journey home was getting stuck in New York for three days with 9 pieces of luggage on our way to Toronto to visit shenae’s family before finally getting back to LA from the UK. We missed Canada Day entirely and I wound up throwing my shoulder out right before we got there. Nightmare.

Worst Friday night injury – Frinjury, if you will?
I’ve fallen over and cut my head open before and had to get stitches.

Saturday morning has rolled around and you’ve got a bit of a sore head – what’s your best hangover cure?
Berroca is a lifesaver. Any vitamin C powder that you can put in water is my go-to as soon as I wake up.
Thanks Josh! You can catch Beech in action TONIGHT at Club NME @ KOKO – tickets on sale here
