With heads still fuzzy from Be’s second birthday party, you could be forgiven for expecting the club to take it easy as January is put to bed. But that’s not the Be way and what better way to say good riddance to this cold and miserable month with one more spectacular party.
So how do you follow a birthday lineup that featured the likes of gorgeous electro pop superstar Annie? Simple really, you get on the phone and ask one of the best bands to have emerged from this island in recent years, New Young Pony Club, to dig through their record collection and come and spin a few of their favourite songs. Famed for their explosive punk funk performances on stage, the band are no slackers behind the decks either, so expect a Technicolor riot of disco, punk and electro to come blasting out the speakers.
You want more? Of course you do, well how about a live set from the wonderful Toob, the electro disco machine composed of vocalist/keyboardist Jakeone and drummer Richard Thair, founder of the legendary Red Snapper. It all sounds good to me. With an epic mix of techno sounds merged with everything from afro-beat to dub and twisted punk funk, Toob have long been favourites with the likes of Laurent Garnier and Andrew Weatheral and it’s easy to see why.
Finally in the Main Gallery getting the party going will be Be’s fearless team of resident DJs David H, Clemence LaChance and John Power, with their hot mix of electro, indie, disco and new wave.
In the South Gallery The Non-Stop Electric Cabaret will continue to amuse and amaze in equal measure. Curated by London's celebrated sassy Burlesque artist Miss Vicky Butterfly and accompanied by a vintage rock n roll jukebox from the stables market stall holder, Bioux, expect a parade of the most weird and the wonderful burlesque acts London has to offer.
Since Proud Galleries re-launched in 2008, Be has been their flagship club-night attracting up to fifteen hundred revellers every Saturday. Now in its second year the club has redefined London's club scene with its unique mix of indie, disco electro and rock n' roll, spectacular live acts, performance art and burlesque. From Mystery Jets to Friendly Fires, Kissy Sell Out to Ebony Bones, Be has showcased many of the most exciting new bands around today, and seen the likes of New Young Pony Club, Annie, Disco Bloodbath and Rory Phillips all take turns on the decks.
