Late TV
Amidst the cultural detritus of television’s after-hours rises a freaky new street beat played by London’s Late TV. Culling influences from jazz cats and art rockers, B-movies and trash television, via Lynch and Tarantino, Late TV are the moonlighting house band for a surreal all-night dream club where the intangible dance floor shifts and folds to become the set piece of a talk show beamed onto the farthest reaches of your channel selector.
This is the Launch Party for 'Citizen' thier new single. Watch the video below:

Fyans
£5 Tickets

Fyans
Growing out of the UK’s melting pot of London, Fyans is the result of a coming together of musicians who have known each other since they were babies. The group formed within the concrete confines of London, playing their first gig together at their local, the timeless Passing Clouds.

Love Cans
A Psycho Garage three piece coming from the mountains of Switzerland, dressed like prisoners from the bayou with magic capes. Their music reminds the early garage with Bab Digler and his bloody sounds on is creepy guitar, Meryl Love she's like a old primitive drum machine, mixed with a twisted noisy organ with Dany Digler that sings like mad and possesed preacher.

Darla And The Blonde's Spooky Single Launch Party! / £5

Darla and The Blonde (DATB) are an alt rock duo. Darla sings about the people and ideas that inspire her. The Blonde... follows.

Their first EP Eugenia came out in May 2016. Their next single, Dorian, from a new EP of the same name, is due for release on October 27th 2017.
The song Dorian is inspired by the novel Picture of Dorian Gray. The song picks up years after the book ends, exploring the sins of the father, as Dorian’s granddaughter starts to see disturbing visions…
DATB is Jen Damaris (Darla) and Nina Lovelace (The Blonde). 
“Sometimes a special band comes along, with a uniqueness about them that proves hard to ignore.” - Louder Than War, 2016

DATB will be joined by their backing band for a Halloween Single Launch Party at Ryan's Bar, N16, to celebrate the launch of Dorian at an appropriate time of year.

DATB are also joined by epic rockers The Vone and super spooky storytellers The Demon Gin on their night of revelry, debauchery and other well-worn wordage associated with Halloween.

Tickets include a digital download of their new album in full, plus ALL proceeds go towards paying the musicians on the night.

The Psychedelic, Mortal-Life-Review Revue

After a year of silence, Andrew J. Wilson brings his brand-new, coldly tipped, eagerly unanticipated concept show to the stage in Stoke Newington. Expect stand-up, expect music, expect crying. 

If you enjoy a surrealist, melancholy, sex-fuelled lifestyle, this may or may not be the show for you. If you are partial to a cold glass of prosecco and a chat about current affairs, you may or may not enjoy this. If you've ever pondered for so long you forgot you the subject of said pondering, you could potentially love or hate this. Its something for everyone and something for no-one.

There will be no support (in all senses of the word)

It will cost a small amount of money to enter and you will be able to pre-order tickets in the link that will eventually be below.

This is likely to be a busy event. 

Peace and Love
