19:00 until 01:00
a great night in store celebrating the friendship between the Irish and Basque nations.
one of the originals and still one of the best.London Irish psycho-ceilidh...
A six-piece 'Psycho-Ceilídh' band juxtaposing perfectly the swirling, spiritual abandon of authentic Traditional Irish music with the electric energy blast of a full-on, pumped-up-to-fe*k Punk band and in the process, distilling the sound of two other mighty London rebel bands, The Clash & The Pogues, & 'carrying the torch on' with their own, unique London-Irish brew!
old-school punk-rock band coming all the way from Aretxabaleta, a town in the province of Gipuzkoa in the Basque country for this, their only english gig celebrating their new album release!
BOTTLEJOB – streetpunk sounds
london slang, sounding like a bottle in the face, it refers to a coward or what the ..Cockney Rejects.. would call a 'shitter'. Stand together and never run.
The band is an unlikely mix of Irish and Basque but based here in London.
STEVE WHITE AND THE PROTEST FAMILY
great news...we've been trying to book this band for a gig for a couple of years now and its never happened till now!!we're totally thrilled to have them on board for the gig!
After a difficult childhood, Steve White & The Protest Family officially came of age at Tommy Flynn's in Camden on the 3rd December 2009. Led by songwriter Steve, their brash, witty, entertaining, often political brand of semi-acoustic folk/punk invokes comparisons with Billy Bragg when he used to be good. Frank Turner would hate it of course.
lead singer from londonirishcelticpunkers THE LAGAN roped in to do a solo set.expect a few Lagan favourites and a few choice covers as well.
latest news is that there will be a 'txalparta' as well.thats a ancient Basque instrument and 'bertsolari' which is a old way of telling stories by singing...
keep a eye on here for updates and any changes to the line-up...
with DJing from GREENFORD BHOY playing Irish and Basque folk, punk, folkpunk, rebel and no Mumford And Sons!
admission is only a paltry fiver...yes £5! and all money raised will go to the dependants of political prisoners in The Basque country and Ireland!
all taking place at T.CHANCES MUSIC VENUE.

a new place for us but we havent moved far from our spiritual home of Mannions! we're still in Tottenham but even closer to Seven Sisters tube station.so if youre coming from anywhere in London you'll find it easy to connect with the Victoria line and Seven Sisters is Northbound. Overground trains arrive from Liverpool Street and all trains and tubes run well late.theirs tons of buses and loads of them are Night Buses so it'll be easy enough to get home too.if you have any specific route requests add them in the comments and one of us will be able to help hopefully!
