Free Fridays : Lovebox Weekend Warm-Up Party @ Cargo, 12/06/2009
Talk about the best club nights in London will undoubtably include mentions of Horse Meat Disco, Disco Bloodbath and Secretsundaze. And tonight we have representatives from all three! Any time these guys throw a party you know it's going to be a roadblock, so to have residents from all three playing under one roof is nothing short of insane and makes early arrival not so much recommended as mandatory.
Où Est Le Swimming Pool?, when not walking around town towel in hand looking really confused make enthralling electro/pop music inspired by the likes of the Pet Shop Boys or Yazoo. Despite their partially francophone name and having a fanatical following in France, Où Est... hail all the way from Camden Town and are the perfect choice to headline the Lovebox weekender launch party: local, young and exciting.
The Edinburgh based three-piece Young Fathers have just confirmed they'll be supporting Simian Mobile Disco in their European tour so you just know they are going places, and not just physically. But before they embark on the well deserved trip to fame and fortune they'll be bringing their refreshingly energetic brand of Hip Hop to Cargo. Imagine if Q-Tip had his sound perverted by Spankrock and you start to get the picture of what these guys sound like!
To round things up the Lovebox All-Stars and the two Collins from The Fly - who will be curating a tent at the festival - will warm things up nicely on the ones and twos.
LATE ADDITION: magician Spencer Wood, winner of the "Close-Up Magician Of The Year Award" added to the line-up.
