Eagle Legs

I was listening to BBC6 music a week or so ago and I heard the usual Good day/Bad day slot with this lovely girl who said she was launching her club night at the Macbeth.  Just thought I’d give y’all a heads up – it’s *tonight*.

When her heard her music history (mention Sleater Kinney and my ears prick up) I thought hmm this could be interesting..

Indie – soul – and riot grrrl. Sounds like the soundtrack to success.

There’s going to be a cake drop from The Great Cake Escape, a mixtape exchange by Charlot Webster (bring your cassettes to swap) and zines (which reminds me of the good old days when I made GASH, a photocopied zine of poetry, reviews, photography, fashion and illustration.  Good times.)

They’ve got some fab DJ-spinners involved….

DANCE MAGIC DANCE whose nights at The Old Blue Last I’ve been meaning to go to for about a year now..

OFF MODERN – same story, especially as there’s some tenuous connection between them and a BFF of mine.

Jorge from the band COLOURS – I’m listening to their myspace (!) page right now. It’s reminding me of Radiohead circa Pablo Honey, which I like. A lot.

WANDA WHISKEY – a riot grrrl mate of the organisers with, let’s face it, a brill name.

plus of course resident EAGLE LEGS DJs.

It’s 7.30pm till late

The Macbeth
70 Hoxton Street
N1 6LP

See you there..

DAY FOUR

I was delighted that Day Four i.e. Monday 21st was another late start so I could get some writing done in the morning. In fact, it was a rather chilled out day in general.  I set up in the Vauxhall Fashion Scout press lounge mainly to get some writing done!

I started the day at 15.30 with A La Disposition.  The collection, entitled ‘A Utopian Aviary’ was not only conceptually but quite literally influenced by birds.  The soundtrack even included the sound of birds’ wings flapping.  Check out the statement collars on these bad boys.  And such gorgeous colours.

I then popped to the Bunmi Koko show.  Another title – ‘Kaleidoscopia’ – and another display of colour in all its glory.  Personally, though, I wasn’t into these technicolour prints and was more taken with the demure looks and masterful drapery, particularly of the cobalt blue trouser suit.  Yum.

Two fabulously vivid shows.

Take your pick!
