Welcome to The Double R Club an evening of mystery & nightmares inspired by the films of David Lynch
Expect a darkly surreal cocktail of
"Damn fine" Cabaret, where
"Restless nights and uneasy dreams go with the territory..."

Think the finger-clicking jazz ambience of cult TV show Twin Peaks,
the absurdist monochrome machine world of Eraserhead...
From the dark underbelly of Mulholland Drive,
to the surreal small-town madness of Blue Velvet
A dark and troubling cabaret dream from ANOTHER PLACE, all served with humour
"Black, like midnight on a moonless night…"

Your aberrant host Benjamin Louche introduces THE underground cult cabaret phenomenon.


PERFORMING THIS TIME:

BELLA DE JAC

a creature from the darkest river of your dreams exudes sensuality and real bite!

HARLOW

this “woman in trouble” defies her torments, cries out in red in darkness and confusion!

JIM LAVENDER

this crooner beyond will sing you headlong into the wonderful and strange…

HENRY MAYNARD

a figure in darkness, absurdity and confusion becomes his own costume…

EM BRULÉE

a voice from the cellar of your heart sings of love, of loss, and of the shadows in between…

KICKMOUSE

anthropomorphic 'thing' laments, tumbles into bad luck, delves into mystery...

SNAKE FERVOR

This daughter of flame and doyenne of dark dreams will conflagrate your souls!

KHESKI KOBLER

The inanimate becomes animate! Walks forth to illuminate your dark dreams!

A Channel 4 series followed with a Perrier nomination at Edinburgh festival not far behind. Ninja Tunes released a remix album of Chickens favourites, Universal featured them on a best selling compilation and thanks to Stewart Lee's drunken late night internet rant Frank Chickens found themselves the unexpected but deserving winners of The Edinburgh Festival Comedy Gods Award!
The Chickens are no longer a duo having hatched and grown to now number an average of 15 members, often more! with songs, stories, costume changes, video visuals and a cast of thousands (well, there's a lot of them now anyway) they are as joyful & fun as ever!

-------------------------------
For one night only, Bethnal Green Working Mens Club will be transformed into the Swan and Paedo, in celebration of

Theo Walcott becoming 3-0 Walcott –

and we've agreed not to argue about whether that's a good idea or not.

Our DJ, Big Mad Andy (who promises he won’t be drinking paint or punching himself) will be playing Peep Show classics all evening. We're not sure what that entails either but he's dead excited.

At 11.59, we will be counting down to the big moment when Theo becomes 3-0.

Peep Show themed cocktails, naans and Crunchy Nut will be available throughout the night to kick you hombres off.

If you like Crunchy Nut cornflakes but can’t face reality, we also have Frosties.

Need a break from the Moroccan cocktails?

Why not swing by a pay respects to a shrine celebrating the life of Gerard?

Or take a seat at your new JLB Credit desk for a spot of Blitzkrieg?

Or visit our on-site make up artist, to get “love you” written on your eyelids?

"Chance would be a fine thing" I hear you cry. Well lucky for you, there will also be chance galore as we raffle off some niche and quite useless Peep Show prizes!

Are you more of a neurotic and paranoid Mark, or a lazy and sexually dysfunctional Jez? You'll get the chance to find out which of the El Dude brothers you are, right before a Rainbow Rhythms dance off and a yard of ale drinking competition.

Puke points will be provided.

Honda are very interested.

We know it’s been bloody ages since the first event. But fear not my shona, we’ve been cooking up another storm for all you weird queers!

This time we are celebrating the blood, sweat, tears and the glorious contribution that has been sewn by Bangladesh in the fashion industry.

Fast fashion, slow fashion, sustainable fashion, upcycling, recycling, couture and craft as fashion, all have a major role to play globally. Along with that rights of workers, care of the environment and the importance of self-care is crucial.

Recently 50,000 Bengali’s from the garments industry went to the streets to protest. Whilst we near BD's independence - let’s not forget the continued struggle, and let us celebrate their continued bravery.

We’ll be screening a series of short films, live music, performances and amazing DJs spinning some classic Bangla tunes, Indian, Hip Hop, Drum&Bass and Electro throughout the night!

Theme:

Add some naga to it - DRESS TO IMPRESS / QUEER AND FANCY

Lineup:
DJ T.T / DJ Isuru / Live performance by Shelley & co..
