Headz was held every Friday from April 7 1995 - July 7 1995. It featured James Lavelle and special guests. There are no known dates between May 26 - June 30. An extra event of Headz occurred in France in November 1995 for the 1995 Trans Musicales, and later in the year James Lavelle took the tour to Australia for the Australian Mo' Wax Headz Tour.

Headz Outside UK

Headz nights and Headz tours were also held by James Lavelle in other parts of the world, and on 29 November 1995 Lavelle took several Mo' Wax artists to the 17èmes Rencontres Trans Musicales in the city of Rennes, France, all playing at La Cité. Featuring James Lavelle [6], DJ Shadow [7], Attica Blues [8], The Psychonauts who played in replacement of DJ Krush [9] and La Funk Mob [10]

In December 1995 James Lavelle again took several Mo' Wax artists overseas, with a Headz Tour visiting Australia over the New Years Period. This featured Money Mark, DJ Shadow, James Lavelle, and Charlie Dark of Attica Blues.

Notes

In the September 1995 issue of Muzik they call out James Lavelle for not showing up to his Headz club night, and leaving 300 fans out in the cold.[11] It is unclear which of the dates this was, but was likely June 1995.

In the November 1995 issue of GQ Magazine Lavelle stated it was a "breakdown in communication" as he had previously decided to close the club due to issues with the venue, and so wasn't aware another Headz night had been advertised.
