Since Proud Galleries re-launched in 2008, Be has been their flagship club-night attracting up to fifteen hundred revellers every Saturday. Now in its second year the club has redefined London's club scene with its unique mix of indie, disco electro and rock n' roll, spectacular live acts, performance art and burlesque.
Responsible for one of the best albums of 2009 so far, the New York trio of Au Revoir Simone conjure up the kind of ethereal, haunting electronic pop music that makes grown men weep into their beards and go weak at the knees.
Completing a wonderful bill are Stockholm’s These Dancing Days, five Swedish schoolgirls, who thumping Hammond organ backed Northern Soul inspired stomp joins the dots between the Shangri-Las meets and The Go-Gos and is sure to win over the Proud crowd.
In the South Gallery The Non-Stop Electric Cabaret will continue to amuse and amaze in equal measure. Curated by London's celebrated sassy Burlesque artist Miss Vicky Butterfly and accompanied by a vintage rock n roll jukebox from Stables Market stall holder, Bioux, expect a parade of the most weird and the wonderful burlesque acts London has to offer.
