Fightback Lager - London Launch Party
This Beer Saves Music Venues!
Fightback is the fundraising arm of the UK registered charity Music Venue Trust which acts to protect, secure and improve music venues. A proportion of sales from Fightback Lager will go to defending venues from closure and tonight we're thrilled to give it a London launch party!
Live sets from:
Benin City is the London-based three-piece comprised of vocalist and poet Joshua Idehen, vocalist Shanaz Dorsett with multi-instrumentalist Tom Leaper.
Suitman plays live jungle and drum & bass mash-ups using a stand-up cocktail kit and SPD-SX.
Suitman is also the drummer in Micachu & The Shapes and Mount Kimbie so you know this'll be something special.
'Worstworldproblems, comprised of producer nomorewillroam and vocalists teenslasher91 and gargoyle, take the ice sounds of drill and weave in lopsided, skewed vocals that deal with disaffection and loneliness, swapping front and braggadocio for vulnerability.' - NME (Hot 100 list, 2019)
This event takes place at The Windmill, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Named after a Nigerian state capital, Benin City is Theo Buckingham on drums, Tom Leaper on tenor sax, and Joshua Idehen on rhymes. Joshua met Theo Buckingham at a squat party. They struck up a loud friendship and decided to make more organised noises together. They drafted in Tom to arrange their babble into music. Voila! As a band, they've been played and championed by Jon Kennedy, Jon Hillcock, Scroobius Pip and Eddy Temple Morris (XFM) Edith Bowman and Tom Robinson (BBC6). They have gained accolades and fans for their energetic live performances, having supported Soweto Kinch, VV Brown, Moko and Youngblood Brass band.
