DO 4 LOVE

TIMES: 9PM UNTIL 2AM

ADVANCE: £7.50

DOOR: £9 b4 11pm // £10 after.

BUY TICKETS NOW

-------------------------------

The sound of Hackney is changing.The institutions, clubs and scenes are being silenced.
Do 4 Love is a party from the people who have shaped the sound of Hackney.
Join us for a night of dancing and celebration, showcasing the generations who have laid the foundations of the soundtrack to our city.
We’re not here to mourn or moan, we are here to vote with our feet, to preserve our musical heritage, to resist the cultural change the only way we know how.
Hackney will not be closed.
Arrive early, music starts immediately. Book in advance to avoid disappointment.
NEWTON ACE
Newton ‘Ace’ Dunbar opened the Four Aces club on Dalston Lane in 1966. One of the first venues to play black music in Britain. The Hackney club booked Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder and Jimmy Cliff. Newton played a pivotal role in the growth of reggae, ska, rocksteady, dub, lovers, dancehall and later, jungle in the UK. In the 90s, the club was transformed into Labyrinth, the first indoor, licenced Acid House venue, where The Prodigy played their first live performance.
Newton is an instigator, a benefactor and changemaker. He has played a pivotal role in the evolution of the music scene in the UK over the last several decades. The club was closed in 1997, repossessed by Hackney Council and demolished in 2007.

LASCELLE GORDON
Hackney’s Godfather of rare groove. Lascelle was one half of The Cat in the Hat, with Barrie Sharpe he launched the London club night in 1985. Known as ‘The Church’ by its followers, The Cat in the Hat was the birthplace of rare groove, an underground scene that broke through barriers. Raised in Hackney, Lascelle played a pivotal role in the evolution of dance music, shying away from the typical 4/4 dancing stomp and back to complex, rhythm and spiritual roots.
Lascelle performed in the Brand New Heavies until 92’, and now plays with Vibration Black Finger and Woven Entity.

ELDICA RECORDS
A cornerstone of the community, 18 years ago Eldica Records opened on Bradbury Street by Annie Joachim Joseph and her husband Andy Westbury. Andy, once a member of 90’s hip-hop rave outfit 2-Mad, hand-pick’s the records. Annie’s great-grandmother Eldica Joachim (the shops namesake) was an influential name amongst the West Indian expatriates and music scene of 50s London.
An Aladdin’s cave of familiar sounds you’ve never head before, Eldica provides vinyl selections of sounds from around the world to the DJ’s and collectors of Hackney. As the area has transformed around it, Eldica has resisted, standing strong through plans to demolish Bradbury Street to aid Crossrail in 2016.

LEXUS BLONDIN
Lexus is the founder of Church of Sound and Total Refreshment Centre - one of London’s thriving jazz scene’s most influential venues. Operating for the last 7 years, TRC provided an open environment for musicians to collaborate and experiment. Starting out as a studio space and evolving into a multi-faceted cultural venue, TRC was the home to London’s new wave of jazz musicians.
Total Refreshment Centre was recently served a notice of closure.

LADY OLÉ

TIMES: DOORS 9PM | CLOSE 2AM

ADVANCE:£11 (RUNNING LOW!)

DOOR: £15

BUY TICKETS NOW

-------------------------------

BGWMC is super excited to welcome LADY OLÉ into the family! Lady Olé is a party bridging

Spanish and British queer club cultures

through dance music, bizarro and kitsch aesthetics, and performance!!

Lady Olé is ecstatic to reveal that the foundations to a new home are being layed...

Welcome to the BETHNAL GREEN WORKING MEN'S CLUB or BGWMC. Right at the heart of Bethnal Green/Shoreditch, back to the hood where we saw Pelucas y Tacones go from bottom to top (pun intended).

To celebrate this new era, we have also called in to perform an act that has caused nothing but indifference since their mass media debut on X-Factor. Their looks, their aesthetics, their music, their attitude... we are simply in front of an irresistible trash-glam-queer duo who rocketed to fame singing to a doughnut (Homer Simpson would have loved to cover them!). We are talking about Jirafa Rey y LaPili aka GLITCH GYALS... responsible for the hits 'cómeme el donut', and 'muslona' among others.

This is their London debut, be sure not to miss them!

But, what about the dresscode? the theme? no, we're not doing a bakery special just because there is a doughnut on stage, but we want you to get fierce, wild and raucous and bring out the animal in you.

Easy right? It's tranimal time... what is a tranimal? yes, you guessed it, you dear transvestite friend looking like a drowned harassed Rat or a Lion queen... it's a wild wild furry world out there, so don't be lazy and dress for the occasion.

TUESDAY 27TH NOVEMBER

COMMUNION PRESENT:

JOSEPH J JONES

TIMES: DOORS 7.30PM | CLOSE MIDNIGHT

ADVANCE:£10.50

DOOR: TBA

BUY TICKETS NOW

-------------------------------

The 25-year-old soul survivor’s grandad was a jazz guitarist who played for the BBC in the age of swing and his grandmother was a concert pianist who would fill his childhood home in Hornchurch, Essex with music. His life projecting one of the biggest voices in 21st Century Soul began at fourteen when a mate tricked him into singing in front of his school. Joseph’s musical education drove him to pick up the guitar at sixteen, write his own songs and take his rich, classically soulful voice out onto the East End pub circuit, playing solo two-hour sets of covers.

Joseph signed to Communion Records in November 2015, having been spotted at a Dalston pub gig. His debut single ‘The Video’ appeared, a neo soul beauty about the difference between alcohol-fuelled euphoria and the realities of real love the morning after. Joseph’s inner Kanye and Gorillaz fan appeared on follow-up ‘Whisper To A Hurricane’. The track revealed a more electronic side which Jones would explore in his collaboration on ‘All or Nothing’ with drum’n’bass producer Kove. ‘Gospel Truth’, returned to his melancholy electronic side, merging emotional piano balladry with rousing electro-gospel and couching his romantic misery in religious lexicon.

Fresh from a month long residency at DUCKIE...THE LEGENDARY GREEN DREAM...

OOZING GLOOP returns to BGWMC!

THE GLOOP SHOW is a truly unique and surreal exploration of surviving in the 21st century as an autistic drag queen.

It's a psychomagical trip from the universal AEIOU to the particular 3 3 3 2 2 (and back again.)

On route we ramble through a dream scape of

handmade patchwork veils, gigantic vowels, masks, wigs and lashes.

As we spiral through the subconscious our guiding green vagabond wielding a 7ft mascara wand assures that squares make squares, triangles make triangles and doing things… does stuff.

To the accompaniment of Britney Spears and Bette Davis; THE GLOOP SHOW re-stitches the fabric of our reality and charts sublime new political territories.

The project was developed in residence at Performance Space and The Marlborough Theatre and premiered at Steakhouse Live Festival Rich Mix London to raving responses!

It has also just won a Brighton fringe award at The Marlborough this year. oh yeah!!

STICK AROUND POST SHOW FOR A OUTRAGEOUS AFTERPARTY

W/ PERFORMANCES FROM:

KATY BAIRD- The living embodiment of live art graces our humble after party
KEVIN LE GRAND- A Liverpudlian love child who will serenade us all with their dulcet (Regional) tones.
BARBS- Was diagnosed with cancer on this day 10 years ago, and has not only survived but blossomed into an operatic drag act drenched in shame, transgression and elation.
THE NIGHTBUS- - A fabulous queen expanding the political scope of LGBTQ Performance

AND RODENT on the decks spinnin' Millennial trash pop party tunes mixed with camp classics!

COME GET GLOOPY WITH US!?

FRIDAY 14TH DECEMBER

GREEN MILK PRESENT:

GOOD BOIS

TIMES: TBA

ADVANCE: TBA

BUY TICKETS NOW

-------------------------------

Green Milk are back (!) and this time they’re running a night in aid of the animal charity Blue Cross, with special guests:
Adam Riches · Abandoman · Norris & Parker · Olaf Falafel · Fern Brady
Hosted by our very own Robin Jon Hill, we’re celebrating all the good bois (dogs) in the world and aiming to raise as much money as possible to help Blue Cross do what they do best - take care of our pets. Oh, there’s also going to be a big boozy after party till late with DJ Keni Sakuda.

It’s Christmas after all!!


Adam Riches
By now a Green Milk staple, Adam Riches brings his chaos magic back to our boudoir. What that means we have no idea. We’ll find out on the night.
Abandoman
The Irish comedy rap sensation, Abandoman’s freestyle antics make every night a complete one-off. Just make sure you haven’t got anything weird in your pocket. Or do.
Norris & Parker
With characters that have a growing cult reputation, this is theatrical madness and mirthful mayhem. Fearless, fascinating and feverish.
Olaf Falafel
Green Milk favourite and one of the goodest bois around, Olaf’s self-styled silliness is simply infectious. And that beard is just divine.
