Cargo presents Kaleidoscope Caravan Club.
Starting on the 19th of September Cargo will introduce a novel approach to Saturday admission charges: the "Honesty Box Payscheme". Under this scheme, there will be no fixed cover charge on the door.* Rather, Cargo will let the punters decide how much the night's entertainment is worth to them.
So who wins with the scheme? The short answer is: everyone. The punters will get to pay a fair price on the door, the bands will reap the rewards of their hard work directly from the fans, and Cargo gets to donate 50% of the total takings to a named charity of its choice (plus have a packed club every Saturday night, of course).
Clearly such a scheme will rely heavily on having entertainment worth paying for. And that's where the Kaleidoscope Caravan Club comes in: a brand new Saturday night promotion brought to you by the team that have established Free Fridays as a London clubbing institution. Kaleidoscope Caravan Club aims to bring back the sparkle to Shoreditch's Saturday nights by hand-picking the most exciting bands and djs around. No filler.
Such a ground-breaking scheme deserves to go off with a bang so there will be not one, but two launch nights:
Saturday 19th of September 2009
LIVE: JOAKIM & THE DISCO + KELPE
DJS: JOAKIM + THE INVISIBLE + NADIA KSAIBA + TIGERSUSHI DJS + 20JAZZFUNKGREATS
Saturday 26th of September 2009

* Unless you are on the guestlist, in which case there will be a minimum donation, which will go to the charity in its entirety.
