Notting Hill Arts Club
In 2013 we welcome the twentieth anniversary of East Wing, a biennial exhibition at the Courtauld Institute of Art showcasing emerging international artists. Following the successful collaboration with the Notting Hill Arts Club in November, we are teaming up again to kick off the anniversary celebrations with a massive night of live music!
Arrive early as the Happy Hour rolls until after 9pm and we open the night with the ’60s psych pop-rock of London four-piece YouMe and The Moon.
Juliette and the Sin is a London duo who play a mix of blues, old-school rock ‘n’ roll, a bit of psychedelia, and sexy sounds with lyrics inspired by writers from Ginsberg to Son House. Guest musicians from other bands often join the line-up for a one-off gig.
Fresh from touring with The Beautiful South in 2012 the Van Susans headline with tracks from their widely-acclaimed recent album ‘Paused in the Moment’. Signed to Beatnik Records, the sextet craft cool pop-rock harmonies propelled by lead singer Olly and the instrumental mastery of the Dullaway brothers. Hailed by Chris Hawkins of BBC 6 Music as “a Levellers for the new generation”, they’ve attracted a big following at live shows featuring their harmonic melodies, big riffs and spirit-raising tunes.
More fancy footwork with resident DJ CheapDate ’til 2am as he opens a treasure trove of rare and racy acid soul, digital funk, disco, ’80s boogie and house. Having supported the likes of Todd Terje, Mike Simonetti, Greg Wilson and a host of other disco dons in recent times, he also knows where the funk is at.
The party is taking place on the 10th January 2013 at 7:30pm at the Notting Hill Arts Club.
