Margate Radio Christmas Party (10th Dec)
10th December 2021
Doors open at 7pm
After our sold out event in July, we are back at Elsewhere for our Christmas event. Margate Radio takes over both floors, with dj's (Inky, Jack Goldstein, James Jordan Johnson, Reggy, Robbie Redway, Jaw -G and Yuri Suzuki) from the station playing an ecletic mix of wonderful music.
We are also extremely excited to have a special live performance from Pigeon (Soundways Records).
Born out of an impromptu post-pub jam session in Margate, the 5-piece group Pigeon swoops onto the scene with their blistering debut EP Yagana.
As the tracks cross effortlessly between Afro-disco, grunge, no wave and jazz, the cohesive symbiotic relationship of the band members is obvious from the start. The powerful vocals of Guinean singer Falle Nioke are complemented by a wealth of talent from Graham Godfrey on drums, Steve Pringle on keys, Tom Dream on guitar and Josh Ludlow on bass.
Having moved to the UK from West Africa in 2018, Falle Nioke has recently been in the spotlight with EPs heavily supported by indie radio and BBC 6 Music playlisters.
This new path can be attributed to the pedigree of the rest of the group – veteran musicians Steve Pringle and Graham Godfrey are key members of Michael Kiwanuka’s band, the latter also performing with Little Simz, Cleo Sol and SAULT, among others.
Furthermore, Tom Dream and Josh Ludlow are electronic artists in their own right – with a number of artistic projects in the works, as well as having performed together as ambient duo Soma World.
The choice of ticket is yours, but we ask that if you can afford £10, that you select this option.
Presented by Margate Radio & Elsewhere (UK).
This is an 18+ event.
General Admission: £11
