Elephant + Dark Tides + Phantom Isle / £5

ELEPHANT

We are Elephant, based in East London and formed last year with our first gig on NYE supporting Love Buzzard.

Mixing garage rock and roll with 80s synth pop with tasteful classic melodies
2016 saw us embark on two U.K. tours as well as multiple festivals. Over summer we released our debut single Lizard Man, a joint venture between two small independent labels, RYP Records and Fort Records. We also supported Gordon Raphael (producer, The Strokes) on the London date of his European tour, where he approached us about working with us on our album.
We are proud of what we have created on this record and are looking forward to a year of music and mayhem!! Join us

DARK TIDES
Dark Tides are an emerging East London-based four-piece. Influenced by the likes of Joy Division, Bauhaus and The Tubes, they play dark vivid anthems and perform high octane live shows.

PHANTOM ISLE
Psych-Pop disco inferno from North London. Slathered in sun drenched guitars and rolling synths, reminiscent of Tame Impala, Peace and Suede. Phantom Isle brothers Pete and Matt, alongside childhood friends Sam and Josh introduce first cuts ‘Channel’ and ‘Nightmare''

Healthy Bones + Hannah Nicholson / £6

Bakery Boy Presents
Halthy Bones + Hannah Nicholson

Healthy Bones
Healthy bones is the new project from writer Dan Masters. Masters has amassed an impressive amount of airplay across BBC Radio 1 & 2, 6 music, and Radio X with previous projects and his re-emergence under the Healthy bones guise marks a welcome return.
Healthy Bones music consists entirely of real instruments, yet still draws a comparison to acts such as M83, Empire of the sun, Bon Iver & Radiohead. In a generation reliant on technology for dynamics and feel, Healthy bones’ EP is a rare thing of beauty…
For fans of indie music with nostalgia for guitars and a penchant for big, lush, intelligent melodic hooks & dynamics, Healthy Bones may just be your new favourite act...
‘Take it from me’ the first single is out on 18th December 2017.

Hannah Nicholson
Blending soulful melancholia with the controlled artistry of a classically trained singer, Hannah Nicholson gives voice to the light and dark of human emotion.
Having previously performed as one half of the Manchester-based psych-folk duo Bird to Beast, coupled with her extensive session work – including Maz (snarky puppy) and Ellie Goulding- she has now crafted her own individual musical identity: a blend of choral, electro and folk, stitched together with a thread that runs from J.S. Bach to Jane Weaver.
Her first eponymously titled EP (produced by Jim Spencer at EVE studios and released in 2017) sets the tone of whats to come.

DHP Family Presents: 
FRIGS
Live at RYANS N16

FRIGS is a Toronto-based band that pairs the raw, emotional grunge of PJ Harvey with the immersive, psychedelic post-punk of early Sonic Youth. With each member bringing a unique set of influences, FRIGS creates a sound that is hard to pin down and an impression that’s unshakable. 

Led by the force of Bria’s vocals, the band has earned a reputation for putting on an hypnotic and visceral live performance. Embracing the mercurial and experimental, their shows are built upon instinct; a vocal growl can unexpectedly give way to a hushed whisper; languid drones boil over into guttural and searing tones. 

Maintaining the communal, do-it-yourself spirit of their forbearers, the band bought recording equipment and turned their Toronto apartment into a studio where they wrote, engineered, and mixed their 2016 Slush EP and two-sided single hest / Trashyard

Tickets are available for FREE via DICE - UK, Ireland & USA

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
