Rocking Brixton party with Celebrity Chimp, Beans on Toast and Evil Genius.
Evil Genius lay down the dark rockabilly and demonic rock'n'roll.
The outstanding and very funny Beans On Toast. On a very high chair.
The fabulous Celebrity Chimp who kindly came in to fill the last slot on the bill after a late cancellation.
It's that bloody David Goo again. He gets everywhere!

Map and venue info
We've got a fearsome night of quiff-shiverin' rockabilly, big band blockbusters, rambunctious rock'n'roll rattlers and banjo bashing bluegrass with three great bands, a ton of top DJs, rock'n'roll videos and an overflowing moshpit of beered up joy.
LIVE ON STAGE AT 10PM:
Described as a "musical mix of Nick Cave channelling The Cramps" and a "Jagger-fronted Bad Seeds" the "charmingly demonic" Evil Genius should set the dance floor alight with their rip-roaring roackabilly mash ups.
"unhinged neo-rockabilly, rather like Billy Childish squaring up for military parade with The Birthday Party. Encore!"
- Music Week
11.15PM: BEANS ON TOAST
Expect a scathing slab of political and satirical punky folk tunes from the man who took on MySpace and lost. He's played every festival you've ever heard of, he's supported Kate Nash and if you miss this you'll have to pay zillions to see him at Reading or Leeds festivals and only have vile Carling beer to drink.
"Gravelly-voiced folk singer/songwriter, big on social commentary, drugs and swearing."
- Drowned In Sound
12.15PM: CELEBRITY CHIMP
One banjo, one drum kit, one chimp, two punks.
"Punk crossed with bluegrass...genuinely top stuff" Drowned In Sound
"Piss taking, ego deflating stuff - set to whizzing pop tunes ...feel-great choruses that gets the audience twitching in their pants with joy." Artrocker
"And then there's the humour. The humour is everything. It infuses everything: the riffs, the fills, the clothes, the shoes and the Derek and Clive-esque verbal sniping, pushing and twisting between songs and throughout. Totally excellent songs. The bastards." Upallnightmusic
