This night promises to be a musical treat, with the fantastic MORTON VALENCE debuting songs off their forthcoming second album, supported by the stunningly beautiful indie-pop of the LOST CAVALRY (ex-Fanfarlo), as well as the usual gang of DJs keeping you entertained all night. With the incredible Death Cab for Cutie playing in the nearby Academy, this is going to be the best after-show party in town!
MORTON VALENCE 11.15pm
Serving up full-fat slices of hook-rich electro-pop soaked in Cabaret-era decadence with a sensational live show to match, we're delighted to host the mighty Morton Valence before they embark on their European tour.
The band's debut album, 'Bob and Veronica Ride Again' has picked up rave reviews, so make sure you get down to Brixton for this one!
"A rich treasure trove of songs" **** Q Magazine
"...released possibly the best single of the past decade, Sailors" BBC
"alluring and seductive" **** Uncut
"Spectacular" Drowned in Sound
"a full fat slice of hook rich electro-pop" BBC
"One of the year's loveliest albums" Artrocker
THE LOST CAVALRY 8pm
A new project by Mark West, the former guitarist from FANFARLO, we've been loving the beautiful indie/folk sounds of this great new band.
"an instant delight...beguiling set of crafted alternative indie folk tunes, acoustic smiles ...their songs are uncluttered gems"
"Smiths and early Travis-like guitar pop" Time Out
Original photos, old footage, pop 45 sleeves, and more.
We'll also have a full crew of hard-drinking Offline regulars throwing down a top selection of tunes, including:
An ale-fuelled onslaught of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, rockabilly, Mrs Mills & Liberace in a floor stomping package proving that drinking'n'DJing can be a perilous trade.
NIPSLA (Falling over studios)
Packing more pop than a Rice Krispies factory, Nipsla's DJ bag is a veritable jumble sale of joy, overflowing with indie, dance, electro and party tunes.
BARON BOBBY BAUHAUS (charcoal soul)
More mysterious than Robert Smith's eyeliner bag, Bobby gets dancefloors rocking with quirky, darkside indie-pop and kohl-smudging breakbeats.
