Rag ‘N’ Bone Man
The other day at our Church Walk location, we were proud to host a BeBox event in collaboration with Got2b, featuring the incredibly talented Rag 'N' Bone Man. The bleusy singer/songwriter from Brighton was interviewed and gave an amazing live performance. The industrial setting of the location really added to the emotional and raspy style of the music, giving it a more raw vibe. Please checkout his interview and performance here:

Luv Luv Luv Records Launch Party @ MC Motors
We recently played host to the official launch party of recently established independant label Luv Luv Luv Records at our MC Motors location featuring the live return of multi-platinum selling artist Florence & The Machine. Set on an unusually sweltering September evening, the event featured perforances from a selection of the label's newest signees including, the blues-tinged Jamie N Commons, London based art-rockers Theme Park, the boldly named Spector, and of course what was to be the main attraction of the evening, appearing in front of packed house, a fantastic full-band performance from Florence Welch and her well-oiled musical machine. Sporting a new hair-do, the South-London songstress showcased material from her up and coming album 'Ceremonials' along with belting out soon-to-be classics from her back catalogue, closing the event in spectacular fashion.
Land of Kings
This year MC Motors will be one of the venues hosting Dalston arts and entertainment festival Land Of Kings (play on Kingsland Road, illness geddit?). Havana Club have taken over the warehouse giving it a Cuban style makeover with Giles and the guys at Soulshakers setting up a Havana themed bar. Rare films, drugs secret story telling and domino boards are also strategically placed throughout the venue which has been curated by Vince Vella. Festival goers will all have to travel through at some point to collect their wristbands and a stage has been set up to host Brass Roots and the Havana Club Collective amongst others. The #MEATEASY has left its temporary home in New Cross and is going back to its roots setting up its refurbished meatwagon in our car park. Our neighbours at Print Club are also getting involved bringing their screen printing expertise to the event. Wristbands can be bought on the door and allow entry into a number of local institutions such as The Nest, The Alibi, The Arcola Theatre and Rio Cinema. The programme also incorporates The East End Film Festival and 2ManyDJs headline the extensive music programme which you can see in full here.
