PLAYING THIS TIME:

DUNCAN BROOKER - 'RECORD COLLECTING OBSESSIVE' THE GUARDIAN

Duncan is the trailblazer that has rereleased countless waves of music from around the globe.

After finishing work in Nairobi in 1994, Duncan stayed. As a lifelong collector, he visited as many countries as possible, purchasing stockpiles of records. Fast forward a few decades, and as vinyl records made a resurgence, people began to exploit the popularity of African music, bootlegging old records and pocketing the profits without informing the musicians. Duncan was appalled by this behaviour - this music meant so much to him.

With his expertise and experience Duncan began finding master tapes, rereleasing music at a higher standard, locating the different band members so they could receive their royalties and titles as the superstars of Afrobeat or Ethio-Jazz. Soon Strut Records hired him and the rest is history. You can hear Duncan’s record collection through their compilations of music from the world over.

ZAR (VORTEX JAZZ CLUB, LONDON FIELDS RADIO)

Zar is a London based Producer, Drummer and DJ who started out behind the decks at The Vortex Jazz Club in Dalston. Zar previously hosted a monthly show show exploring Indian classical music, Jazz, Soul, Bollywood, Funk and Hip Hop on London Fields Radio!

He is a member of the electronic music collective ‘The Fearless Few’, and drummer for ONUR & Holy ’57. He recently produced an Indian and Jazz influenced Hip Hop album with east London MC Mandeep, a project exploring the identity and experience of British Asians living in the UK.

Influenced by DJs such as Theo Parrish, Floating Points, and [previous Do 4 Love DJ] Jean-Claude, his taste is broad, from new broken beat from Scandinavia to psychedelic Afrobeat.

LIVE MUSIC FROM: SAINT JOHNSON

Matt Gedrych, Dougal Taylor & Lyle Barton form the trio Saint Johnson.

Fusing influences from Jazz and Dance music with electronics and improvisation, the band play with the sound and intensity that you might expect from a Dance DJ!

Matt Gedrych is the bassist and leader of Maddaddam, he graduated Guildhall music college and has been gigging in the London Jazz scene since. Maddaddam performed regularly at Total Refreshment Center & are currently recording their next album.

Dougal Taylor is also the drummer for Vels Trio, a freaky-ass jazz band with a previous residency at Servant Jazz Quarters. They have been featured on Red Bull Music, Boiler Room and have toured worldwide.

Lyle Barton is a keyboardist and curator, working with Jazz In The Round to promote the night Emergence, curating young and breakthrough Jazz acts. He can be heard playing alongside Emma-Jean Thackray & in Matt's ensemble, Maddaddam.

Accompanying the trio will be Josh Ryan, MCing with the band.

We’ll also be handing the mic over to YOU.... if have something to say, a poem to share, or a song to sing, we invite you to join the band and try it out!

LADY OLE: BORN IN THE USA

TIMES: 9PM UNTIL 2AM

ADVANCE: £8

ON THE DOOR: £10

BUY TICKETS NOW

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

Spanish and British queer cultures collide in a

KITCHSY, CRAZY, COLOURFUL CLUBNIGHT!

The SENSATIONAL SPANISH DARLINGS are back to rock BGWMC with glitter, acrylic hair, and im-pop-ssible Spanish tunes! Say ya-ya-yay!!!

To welcome you all to our *NEW SEASON* we are going to throw a party dedicated to the nation that created pop culture....THE USA!

We admire Americans for many things, like paving the way for women and gay rights, disco, cheerleaders and college culture, Monica Lewinski, Rupaul's drag race, Dolly Parton, Cher, and erm.. Britney Spears (lol) but we are very aware that not everything that comes out of America is worth celebrating, and this is our chance to express both RESPECT AND CRITICISM to a dominating culture in our own inimitable, funny and irreverent way.
The dress code is wide enough to fit those who like making an effort dressing up and those who prefer to contribute discreetly but we really encourage CHEERLEADERS to lead the way. GO TEAM!
MUSIC REALNESS will be served by your resident disco divas Larga DJ and Alejandro Asencio, also known as the duo 'Los Alejandros', dropping Spanish dance music, europop, kitsch, queer hits and obviously a few token AMERICAN BANGERS!  We know what you like!


As an inclusive, queer space, WE WILL NOT BE BUILDING A WALL to stop anyone from coming in based on their origin, race, gender, beliefs, or whatever bollocky dividing discourse.


Please remember that Bethnal Green Working Men's Club gets busy early so we highly recommend that everyone gets down early to avoid queues, and other door related inconveniences. Deal?
