Very quick one, but if you’re in London looking for something extra fun tonight then here’s my top choices for ensuring the rest of your 4 day weekend is spent under a duvet softly moaning (whether that’s because you over indulge or pull and are mating like pandas is entirely up to you…. CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE!).
So first up therse Whoopie! tonight at The Waiting Room (nee The Drop). There’s a great lineup with Felix from Hot Chip taking top billing, swiftly followed by Sam Willis from Walls. Too hot, too strong you might say.
But there’s more Fools + Rushmore are also DJ’ing (though sorry I’m out of the loop on this one so no idea who they be), with former DC glithcy hip-hop electronica type Kelpe and the wonderful Flora Yin-Wong, who once upon a time was content to have ‘Slutty Fringe’ in brackets after her name on flyers but now has the slightly grander ‘Dazed’ appending her title.
It’s free before 10 and cheap after and here’s a DJ mix to promote the night which fittingly for today starts of with an Arthur Russell track, rest in crazy peace AR.
Right, keeping it close by, we also have Disco Bloodbath celebrating their 5th Birthday, ahh doesn’t time fly. Anyway it’s at Hysteria on Kingsland Rd which is a new one to me, but hey alongside the DB boys you also have the frankly fucking brilliant Waze & Odyssey, Nathan G Wilkins, Pete Herbert and DFA’a Tiago.
Not too shabby. Here’s the latest Waze & Odyssey release that came out last month on my own Body Work label. It’s the nuts and I’m not just saying that as your 69p purchase would keep a roof over my fictitious wife and kids head.
Finally whilst as of this weekend I may no longer be a SARF LAHNDAHNER, my heart still belongs to the area so I have to give a shout out to my furry friends The 2 Bears, who are going paw to hoof with Horse Meat Disco at The Bussey Building in Peckham for Bad Thursday. It’s going to be x-large. See you on the other side (or not). Atrovent
