contemporary Rock & Art collide at Corsica Studios in aid of the charity 'Shelter', 3 rooms will be filled with some of the best up and coming bands, DJ's and Art exhibited by students from London's most prestigious Art College's. Live on stage...
The Bridge Gang http://www.myspace.com/thebridgegang - "A truly visceral blend of Pixies-meets-Nirvana angst rock, tempered with the contemporary flourishes of The Strokes and the underlying pop sensibility of a Blondie or Jonathon Richman" (Soundsxp)
Forms Forms Forms http://www.myspace.com/formsformsforms - "It's a rather refreshing sight to see a London band more interested in creating hooks and memorable tunes than fitting into a scene and inhabiting a corner of the NME. With this set of priorities and a cool indie ethos, they sound like a more memorable version of fellow Londoners The Rakes, all fast-paced rhythms and jerky riffs." (God Is In The Tv)
4 or 5 Magicians http://www.myspace.com/4or5magicians - "The songs of Guided By Voices + the awkwardness of Pavement + the twisted vision of The Flaming Lips + the pop tones of Weezer + the coolness of The Pixies + the audacity of Mclusky + the naivety of a young Ben Lee + the endearing inepitude of The Libertines + the dress sense of Kajagoogoo = four kids attempting to be somewhere near as good as Nirvana." (The band themselves)
Special Benny http://www.myspace.com/specialbenny - "Special Benny have their own line in sweeping instrumental lushness. Though still filled with astute shoe gazing radiance (think early Ride guitars mixed with Sigur Ros ambience). Special Benny unseat you with a bouncing jaunt into realms of jazzy weirdness that are surprisingly melodic and down right danceable!" (2bob)
And we're excited to announce that the amazing Trash Money will be DJ-ing through till 2:00am.
+ Snakes n Ladders Records DJs, Swing Riot Club DJs, Hand On The Plow DJs, Mr Edd...
Special cheap booze this month (FRESHERFEST!)
