Thursday 17th January - RAIDERS OF THE LAST TUBE
A new night starts on the 17th Jan, a collaboration with MEATliquor and Secret Garden Party brings you Raiders of the Last Tube, a celebration of gigging, dancing, eating and getting the last tube home.
“Once upon a time no one noticed if you turned up to work sweating neat alcohol and smelling like the band’s tour bus (who you saw last night) on a healthy 5 hours sleep. But being part of being a ‘grown-up’ doesn’t have to mean missing out on seeing the bands you love…”
So the solution? It’s easy, the after work gig and disco. This new party means you can see two bands directly after work grab a bite to eat and not have it leaving the next day in shambles.
The Secret Garden Party’s ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ stage and the Head Gardener will be curating the best new acts they can find. Nice Boy DJs (Early Doors Disco) and the Head Gardener will make sure you can’t stop moving until… 11.30pm when you are sent home before it’s too late.
For the first night it’s doors and 6.30pm and the first band, Annie Eve will hit the stage at 7.30pm.
Annie Eve is a 21 year-old singer/songwriter from London, who honed her musical skills whilst attending Goldsmiths Art College, well known for spawning several interesting musicians such as Graham Coxon and James Blake. Annie is definitely part of that art school experimental tradition with her angsty soul-searching folk style.
Arlissa will hit the stage at 8.15pm
Arlissa is already known to the mover and shakers of the London music scene. Tipped by the BBC as one of the ‘Sounds of 2013’ in the wake of her collaboration with US hip hop artists Nas, Arlissa has been cited as the new Florence but the comparison will prove transient as she showcases her own unique style. Her new single, ‘Sticks and Stones’ is due out in February but check her live first….
And then you eat and disco until 11.30pm
