The (r)evolution continues with our second party event of 2010. Last month was a massive success, with the predicted set of Brighton hipsters turning out. Highlights included some fantastic laughs with Eleni Mettyear’s Photobooth, the results of which you can see here, but the stars were undoubtedly Plugs, as they blasted out an outstanding headline set.
So we arrive at the next event, with Eleni Mettyear returning with her booth and the Ophelia Fancy girls will once again be handing out our gifts, which include our exclusive new mixtape (# 3), featuring a collection of the music getting critiqued on this blog. In case you missed it, the mixtape from our last party is attached below. Lastly, we plan on having two outstanding bands that we promise will knock your sexy socks off.
THE RECOMMENDER MIXTAPE # 2
:KINEMA: – Hitting the stage first will be :Kinema:, a trio of ascending stars from the Brighton music scene, with their magnificent synth pop. Expect Dom’s sexy showmanship, with barrels of positive confidence and tunes to match. This will no doubt be one of the last times you will be able to catch this band in such an intimate environment, so rapid is their climb.
VELO – Headliners tonight will be a proper buzz band from the London hipster circles. To give you some context, Velo arrive with a group that counts one member from Marina & The Diamonds, one member from I Blame Coco and one member from Golden Silvers. This is a band with real potential, gaining lots of chatter on the blogs and they even hit the number one spot on Hype Machine within the last couple of weeks. 2010 is theirs for the taking.
BATTERY POWERED DJs – Our resident DJs will round off the evening, playing tracks exclusively from the blog, so expect cutting edge, razor sharp selections. If you want to know what tunes you should be listening to this year then check out this set from Brighton’s scenester DJs.
Tickets are available from Ape, Resident and Rounder Records. If you can’t get to the shops in person, simply phone them up and ask them to put a ticket on the door for you and they’ve agreed to help. It’s only £3.50 advance and £4 on the door, as we seriously don’t want anyone missing out on the action. Welcome back to the future…
