Live acoustic sets from
Dylan Walshe
Multi-instrumentalist, troubadour and Strummerville featured stompin' one man band harmoniser Dylan Walshe will entrance and entertain you with his captivating stories carried all the way from Dublin to London.

He has been likened to such diverse and disparate acts as Billy Childish to Noel Gallagher and to the Blues masters like Mississippi John Hurt in equal measures or indeed any of the original Bluesmen like Leadbelly, Sonny Boy Williamson or Robert Johnson all melded together to give us something fresh in the vein of Steve Earle aboard a steamboat full of modern Sea Shanties and Celtic tales carried all the way from Dublin to London and back again.

We also think there's more than a touch of Nick Cave in Dylan’s songs as well as his namesake tucked in there too which is no bad thing.

George Frakes
George Frakes is an astonishing, young talent with his consummate fingerpicking and exquisite songwriting; he’ll be taking us on a spiritual journey upon a magic-carpet ride of Neo Psychedelic Folk, nodding respectfully to the likes of Nick Drake, John Martyn, Bert Jansch or even Hank Williams and emerging mysteriously from the mists of North London dressed and draped impeccably, as he does in paisley, velvet, corduroy and fur with song-smithery to match

Book Reading from
Pete Bennett (Monkey Island/The Dublo)
Front man of not one but two of Stoke Newington's finest bands, Monkey Island and The Dublo, Rennaissance man Pete Bennett will read from one of his books which include 'The Occassional Diary of an Opportunist Football Fan’ which was described as 'The opening book of the season . . . a salty tale of promenades, Punk-Rock, politics, family and... erm, football!'

Pop-Up Exhibition/Private view
Robert Rubbish
Exhibition of paintings and drawings from the eccentric, big grin-bearing, wild-haired, snappy-suited eccentric co-founder of Le Gun magazine and one half of Victorian-Punk revivalists The Rubbishmen. Robert Rubbish presents a special ‘pop-up’, private view of recent work which has included paintings and exquisite drawings based on life, love, hate, death and facial hair!

At a recent show at Rough Trade East he exhibited a number of portraits of musicians who famously sported facial hair. Robert is inspired as much by comedy emporiums and joke shops as he is by classical art and artists such as James Ensor and has been known to call some of his work 'joke shop pop art'.

His apocryphal and anachronistic record covers represent Robert's desire to find albums that he has been hoping to track down for years such as ‘The Complete Works Of Egyptian Ska' or 'The Greatest Hits From The Cosmic Toilet'.

As well as Le Gun Robert also publishes 'Los Pistolos' - a low tech publication with a punky, London/Mexican vibe heavily influenced by underground comics and punk zines of yesteryear.

Rubbish has exhibited extensively and internationally with recent shows in Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Japan and even China. He is currently working on a feature-length, espionage movie set between Jersey & London.

The exhibition will run for one month.
