shenanigans 0519

Gaga Ladies and Fran Isherwood will be joined by Diego and the Good Fairy with their original, twisted folk; more musical mayhem in a solo set from Jowe Head, and surreal, clowning comedy from Andrew Bailey.We start with an open mic session so you can be in it too!
Open mic sign-up from 6:30. Show 7 ish..Utterly free.entry, but do take advantage of the comprehensively stocked bar.


Diego Brown and the Good Fairy: the original twisted folk
"Diego Brown and the Good Fairy are passionate about being passionate about things. We learned the craft of song at the age of 7 from a second cousin who later went on to change the course of Anglo-Latin American relations. And we never looked back. Part non-fat dried milk, we demand a lot of our audiences and they usually come up trumps. Our best gigs are unlike anything you've ever experienced. The same can be said of our worst. We were the talk of the chip van queue at Sidmouth International Folk Festival. And we played to a packed latrine in Austin, Texas. We run the Clerkenwell ARTSlab at The Bestey Trotwood in London, at which we regularly push the envelope all the way out of the box."

Jowe Head
Jowe Head's long musical career began with Swell Maps in the Seventies and went on to include a ten year stint in Television Personalities (1984 - 94) as their bassist.

Running concurrently with his time as a Television Personality, Jowe was also a member of the Palookas and The Househunters, in addition to releasing material in his own name.

After leaving Television Personalities in mid-1994, Jowe was a member of the band Olive's Hairy Custard. In recent years he has played and recorded with The Long Decline and Angel Racing Food. His current musical vehicle (2008 -) is Jowe Head & the Demi-Monde.

Andrew Bailey

Andrew Bailey didn"t invent alternative comedy, but he was doing something a lot like it long before other alternative comics came along. A veteran of london"s original Comedy Store, after hours in a Soho strip club, his haunted mimetic humour was far wierder and more wonderful than today"s straight, formulaic stand-up - and a quarter of a century later, he"s still going strong. He"s worked with Ken Campbell and John Hegley, and been in 1980"s TV shows like max Headroom, but his expressionistic clowning is timeless and international, and it"s no surprise to find so many continental credits on his CV.

poetry 0419

Poets are the "unacknowleged legislators of the world" according to Percy Byshee Shelley. But it's often not just as legislators they're unacknoweldged, so much as they're unacknowleged in general.

Come along to the fantastic Mascara Bar to help redress that at An Obscurity of Poets, a new night putting poetry and poetics centre stage.

Hosted by poet, storyteller and self-appointed public intellectual Andrew James Brown.

Feature Acts:

We've kept it down to just the two features, in order to give YOU maximum time on the mic. It's the first of many, so let's see how we get on.

Our inaugral fabulous features are:

Kirsty Diana Smith

Kirsty Diana Smith is a 21 year old Scottish spoken word artist. Inspired by watching spoken word videos on youtube, she started writing poetry three years ago to channel thoughts that were difficult to express. A lot of her work is centred around mental health issues. Kirsty's work can be found on her youtube channel: http://youtube.com/theface0fkirsteh and her blog [http://kirstydianasmith.wordpress.com]

Tim Wells

Tim Wells is made of reggae, lager top, pie and mash and Leyton Orient FC.

Chelsea Hare

In his previous incarnation as therunningchelsea, his music has been described as "an eclectic mish mash of sixties English psychedelia and acid, at times prog rock, at times alternative." his album "In the Future We Will Spinn" was described as "a representation of frenzied youth, dazed consumption and madness up there with Malcolm Lowry's modernist classic Under the Volcano in its vivid depiction and ambition". Performing solo with just his guitar and loop pedal, Chelsea Hare chops up these songs, trying to find another way to know them.

Floor Spots:

Turn up from 1930  on the night to sign up for our open mic section.

Fun and games:

Fun and games guaruanteed on the night. Average prizes to be won!

Bring your best brain for our fantastic (and mercifully short) poetry quiz.
