After six issues, fifteen spectacular gigs, and a whole lotta love, The Beat Happening is taking an indefinite hiatus from the world of publishing and partying.
But to ensure that we go out with a bang, we’re holding a very special party with rather limited entry, with balloons, party poppers and a shite hot line up!
THE OLD BLUE LAST, GREAT EASTERN ST, LONDON
WEDNESDAY JULY 8TH, DOORS 7.30PM
£4 ENTRY PLEASE
ART BRUT (DJ SET)
PETE & THE PIRATES (DJ SET)
VELOFAX (DJ SET)
Sleazy electro rock + neon + so much irony that nobody’s sure if they’re being ironic any more = the ultimate party band. A Coolness gig is like a party in Prince’s pants, and you’re all invited!
STIG NOISE SOUNDSYSTEM
Live breakcore with mariachi-stylee brass, they’re pretty much unclassifiable. Signed to Wrong Music, home of Shitmat and DJ Scotch Egg, they’ll make you pull dance moves you never knew existed…
Featuring members of indie urchins Ratty Rat Rat, Is Tropical are the musical equivalent of the Strokes and Holy Fuck having a food fight with pineapple chunks, before deciding to settle their differences over a coconut daquiri and a rollup.
THE MIDNIGHT EXPRESSO
One man, one spandex suit, and one keyboard. When their powers combine, they become the most ridiculous lounge-hip-hop act you’ve ever seen. Rob Da Bank likes him too.
Our guest DJs will be spinning some old school rock n’ roll, electro, hip hop and funk throughout the night to keep those feet a-dancing til the fat lady sings!
Seeya there, and thanks for the memories everyone!
