STOP, PLAY GUEST DJ ON NEW YEAR’S EVE

We’re having a big party on New Year’s Eve! Tickets have gone very quickly in the past for our NYE nights so don’t hang about.

We’re delighted to welcome local East London club night STOP, PLAY as our guest DJs. Robin Watkins and Naomi Sephton started their night earlier this year and it’s one of our favourite clubs to go to. They’re also old friends of ours so we can’t wait to have them play records at the club. If there’s something you’d like to hear on the night please let us know!

We’ll be playing our eclectic mix of indiepop, post-punk, new wave and sixties music at the Moustache Bar. Doors open at 10pm and we’ll be going through to 3am to see in 2015.

We will be showing the classic 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s to see in the New Year. If we have any return tickets in the run up to the night we will post them on the Facebook event.

DJING AT ALLO DARLIN' AT THE SCALA

DJING AT ALLO DARLIN’ AT THE SCALA

We’ll be DJing at the Allo Darlin’ gig at the Scala on Monday 24th November. They’ll be playing songs from their new album We Come Fom the Same Place.

Allo Darlin’ were formed after Australian Elizabeth Morris arrived in London and bought a ukulele from the Duke of Uke shop in Shoreditch. She began writing music and was soon joined by fellow Australian Bill Botting (bass), Paul Rains (guitar), and Michael Collins (drums).  Their debut album attracted many plaudits including being named No. 2 record of the year by online retailer eMusic, and a glowing 1,200 word essay by Robert Forster of The Go-Betweens in the Australian critical magazine, The Monthly.

Their second album Europe scored 8.1 on Pitchfork, was made USA Today’s Album Of The Week, and garnered praise from Uncut, Q, NME, The Quietus and The Guardian. It was also named Rough Trade Shop’s Album Of The Month, where it went on to become the biggest selling album of the year. The band have been playlisted at BBC 6Music and have recorded sessions for Lauren Laverne, Marc Riley and John Kennedy (XFM), as well being Steve Lamacq’s personal pick for BBC Introducing. Their releases to date, along with their joyous and effervescent live shows, have seen them build an intensely loyal and ever-increasing fanbase.

Support comes from Fortuna Pop! labelmates Tigercats and Norwegian band Making Marks. Tickets can be bought from Ticketweb.
