This year’s LBB is truly multicultural with UK Debut & Exclusive of the movie ‘Pushin’ Too Hard’ followed by a live performance by THE SEEDS. Also, two fashion exhibitions taking place over the Easter weekend. We have teamed up with the V&A for QUANT and London Fashion and Textile museum for SWINGING LONDON exhibitions. Our annual central London festival attracts pleasure seekers from all over the Globe every Easter.
2019 features a UK DEBUT & EXCLUSIVE of ‘‘PUSHIN TOO HARD’, the movie that tells the story of garage Rock legends THE SEEDS who will perform LIVE after the film. Other headliners are DADDY LONG LEGS (USA) and THE JACKETS (CH).
Then from 11pm when the live acts finish the clubbing starts with our dynamic International DJ line-up playing 100% vintage vinyl until dawn.
However live music is only part of what makes Le Beat Bespoke such a fun and unique event. We have collaborated with two fantastic fashion exhibitions about the ‘birth of the cool’ in this country.
Style goes in hand in hand with music, the British Invasion and Swinging London helped shape the UK fashion Industry which has become the envy of the World.
Both exhibitions feature fashion and design icons MARY QUANT and TERENCE CONRAN.
The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club's name is derived from The Standells' 1966 hit 'Dirty Water' which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.
Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, Country Teasers, Black Lips, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers, The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 188.8.131.52's, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original '60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.
Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
