For the third instalment of our (almost) monthly night at Rye Wax, we put in action an idea we had from the beginning: an all-female DJ night. And since we had 3 different men on previous rounds, this time we bring you 3 women spinning decks on the same night! All about balance aren't we?
The date is next Wednesday 17th May. The sound curators for the evening will be Nara and Tess, seasoned DJ's playing together - ya know, b2b and all that jazz - and M. from The 808 Show on Reprezent Radio, doing her DJ debut after months of us nagging her to give it a shot.
Juicy Features is a monthly gathering of music curators bringing unpredictable selections of the old and the new. An unpretentious night of nothing but people having fun and playing music they love.
After a super positive Sunday at GRRRL Zine Fair - photos here - we're already gearing up for another fanzine event! Zine World will take place on the 25th of March on the new place run by the girls from OOMK (who also put on the famous DIY Cultures Fair).
It was night of dichotomies. Revelation and mystery, cheerful and gloomy vibes. Roats Miguel brought his brand new EP to life on a perfect setting and we finally showcased the comic books we've been cooking to go alongside his music. We loved to hear all the positive feedback about the releases and the artist performance. Thank you to everyone who came down and became part of the awakening of Roats Miguel. Special thanks to:
Rye Wax, super chilled and helpful venue and staff. Apthy Khea, as always bringing a more humane and soulful touch to the show. Athlete Whippet, smooth and well curated music. Ester Kubisz, the designer of the magnificent shirt Roats now wears on stage.
For all of you who couldn't make it and those who want to rehash some memories, here's a little taste of what went down last Thursday at the Sebright Arms in Hackney, London.
Roats Miguel set the mood and tested the limits of the P.A system, Los Padres followed and brought a few special guests to help them make the night memorable. Riffs, crazy drum loops, a lot of weird singing and knob turning. Headbanging was a constant.
The night was a success and we only have y'all to thank. It was truly heart-warming to have such a good turnout of people on a rainy Thursday just before a big holiday weekend with a tube strike on top. Your support and love is what motivates us and the artists to keep on sharing special moments like this with you.
