Well, ‘Summer’ went by fast didn’t it. So fast no one even noticed. Not one football-in-the-park day. Not one London Fields Lido trip. Not a sniff of a tan. Alas, we can’t say it’s been a bad summer. At the start it was very good, but that was more like spring. Then it just became Autumn. Also, we’ve had fun: Bon Bon started up, LED Festival, 1-2-3-4 Festival, Hackney Regatta. Fun times. And so summer ends and the season starts again. Football is back and so is your weekend drinking.
Well, Bon Bon has been our highlight. We’ve had some great times. Not that it’s anywhere near over. Last Bon Bon on the August bank holiday was great fun. Thanks to Nwando and the hula team who came and brought a lot of fun. That ritual of ‘Who’s Got The Crack’ as the final song of the night as decreed by me seems to have stuck. If you don’t stay until the end when we play it then you just aren’t trying hard enough.
Lots to look forward to then. Including this Saturday 10th, and Saturday 24th when the wonderful Messy Fingers are taking over the upstairs rock ‘n’ roll room and generally causing trouble. Leon Hatcher from Messy Finger is responsible for our amazing visuals that are blasted onto the wall in the Ballroom at our nights and he will do a sterling job of keeping you dancing so come on down, it might be the best one yet!
As always, we will be free entry and open until 4am. We have a lot of fun. It stays busy until late so come down at any time. There is a guest list so make sure you attend the facebook event to get on it. We play indie, electro, some new rock and garage and some 80s classics downstairs. Upstairs we play rock n roll of the good old days with a good helping of surf and some original garage rock. Drinks are amazing and if you get there before 10pm it’s 2-for-1 on the cocktails (and they are strong!). There isn’t a cooler night on Upper St. See you there!!
