On 4th August 2020, a massive explosion rocked the city of Beirut claiming the lives of at least 200 people. A further 6,500 people were injured and millions of dollars worth of damage left 300,000 people homeless. But the true cost of the explosion is still untold.
In response to this, the LIVE FOR BEIRUT project was created by Ciara Haidar, a musician of Lebanese descent who brought some of London’s finest musicians together for a very special night of live music here at Jazz Cafe back in September. Following the success of the night and the fact that aid is still very much needed, she presents LIVE FOR BEIRUT 2.0. Expect intimate one-off performances from Graham Coxon, Mystery Jets, Rose Elinor Dougall, Bessie Turner, and Ciara Haidar. Plus special DJ sets from Nadine Shah, Django Django, and Lau.ra.
LIVE FOR BEIRUT hopes to raise much-needed funds for the people of Beirut. 100% of all ticket revenue will be donated to Lebanon Red Cross who distribute disaster relief directly to where it’s needed most.
This event is strictly 18+ with ID required on arrival at the venue.
It's hard to believe that skinny indie lad Graham Coxon is now in his forties, but there it is - and a brief glance at his CV will lessen the surprise somewhat: a career with Blur spanning 13 years and a massively adored solo performer since 1998. The multi-instrumentalist has produced a variety of albums and continues to be a solid and influential figure in modern British music.

'Perfectly formed pop' (Bugbear). A band who manage to do something new with the rock sound. Their music is unusual and boundary pushing, but luckily they have the technical prowess to pull it off, sometimes mastering kitchen utensils as well as more standard instruments. The Syd Barrett-worshiping indie outfit formed in the early '90s when the group's shock-headed frontman, Blaine Harrison, was only 12. The band was initially called the Misery Jets, in honor of the Heathrow-bound jets that habitually roared over their native Eel Pie Island, but they changed their name when Blaine (who, again, was very young at the time) misspelled 'misery'. They notched up a few UK top 40 hits in the 00s including 'Two Doors Down' and 'The Boy Who Ran Away', and a string of successful albums including 2008's 'Twenty One' which went Silver. 2020 sees the release of their sixth album; 'A Billion Heartbeats'.

Rose Elinor Dougall
Former member of polka-dot pop girl group The Pipettes, Rose's solo sound is influenced by a more electronic sound. Think Broadcast, Penguin Café Orchestra and The Silver Apples amongst others as a launch-pad. She released her debut solo album back in 2010, but it would be several years before she released her second album due to being offered the opportunity to tour the world as a member of Mark Ronson's backing band. Her critically acclaimed second solo album 'Stellular' finally appeared in 2017, becoming Rough Trade's album of the month. Then, rather than another 7-year gap, her third release 'A New Illusion' followed in 2019.

Bessie Turner is a singer song writer based in East Anglia. Her style is an eclectic pastiche of her musical heroes; she is influenced as much by MIA as she is Dionne Warwick. Yet it is her own uniqueness – in both her personality as well as her music - that sets her apart as an artist and performer.
