Friday 30th July
Punk-funk-disco party at The Alibi with very special guests JD Twitch (Optimo) and Gold Blood (live).
Renowned music blog 'The Beat!' take their mix of punk-funk-disco back to Dalston's coolest new venue, The Alibi, accompanied by some very special guests…
JD Twitch (Optimo)
Exclusive early evening '60 minutes of fear' set
Best-known for having spent the last 12 years as one half of Glasgow clubbing institution Optimo, JD Twitch is renowned for his encyclopaedic music tastes. He'll be taking over the decks in the early evening to play a set of early US and UK punk, post-punk and hardcore based on his '60 Minutes of Fear' compilation for RVNG Intrnational. Hailed by Pitchfork as "a sound fetishist's treasure trove of the accidental glories of no-fi technology" this is a complete one-off and totally unmissable.
PLEASE NOTE: JD Twitch will be on at 10pm!
Gold Blood (live)
Having been hyped by everyone from Vice to Metro, Gold Blood will be performing their visceral live set. Described as "a collusion of Liaisons Dangereuses, AFX and Black Flag" their debut EP on Ali Renault's Human Shield imprint leaves a lasting impression and their live effect has been described by NME as "makes me want to throw myself on the dancefloor and make a tit of myself".
