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
70 Hoxton Street
See you there..
