#SAVEOURVENUES

Hello Lovely People

Like many of you, we are very excited but also anxious.

While this feels like the end of something, for events venues it is also the start….
We have received NO SUPPORT WHATSOEVER from the Council / Government.

So if you have the means, please DONATE. If you don’t, then please share xxx

Those who have already supported us via our FOOD BOX delivery service or our BEER BANK or through direct donations… Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Big love from all our team ❤️❤️❤️

We require support to continue to employ our workforce and to support the 100s of people that our venue provides for financially and to continue providing a platform to many talented artists. We have not received loans applied for to save us in the short-term. So, as a leading UK grass roots venue the real struggle starts now.

We’ve been keeping busy…

Statement on re-opening

JAGUARSHOES venues

Last week the UK Government washed its hands of any responsibility to the arts or hospitality sector and particularly the live music industry. We are now fully expected to re-open our doors on the 4th July with magic beans.
We’ve been forced to make a decision between permanent closure, and the loss of hundred of jobs or to open on a wing and a prayer, while potentially risking public health.

Our venues are expected to operate a new, non-viable business model (NO LIVE MUSIC OR EVENTS) indefinitely, whilst increasing health risks within our community… and that should absolutely NOT be our decision to make.
The Government have been provided with detailed industry data / feedback and have made their decision based on passing on all responsibility (to you and to those businesses). So if or when we do re-open, be sure to hold them culpable for any negative future ramifications… and not the operators!

If you value culture, music and the arts in your area and can help,
PLEASE DONATE to our #SAVEOURVENUES campaign.

‘March’ to the beat of your own drum…

IN LIKE A LION, OUT LIKE A LAMB 
‘In like a lion, out like a lamb’. Let’s talk about the weather…
In the 19th century this saying was used as a prediction contingent on early March weather: If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. In other words a bad start predicts a pleasant end, 
We have certainly experienced the lion part, the weather has been DIOBOLICAL! Can we stop naming storms, please ?… really. It just makes them misbehave. So on that basis, we should expect a very sunny second half of the month. 

Anyhow, we’ve had your back this winter … all of our venues have been steadfast in providing pleanty of warm indoor comforts and activities, gigs, cosy movie nights, pub quizes, indoor markets (for when the outdoor ones are too soggy and waterlogged), and mellow Sunday jazz sessions at Hand of Glory to complete your Sunday Roast experiences!

FUN PAGAN FACT

We’ have just passed “Imbolic” a day on the Pagan calendar that marks the halfway point between Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox

SO … a new beginning, as the light starts it’s return!

Another perspective on the term ‘hand of glory’  is that it derives from the French ‘main de glorie’, the name for the supposedly magical mandrake root – ‘mandrogore’ being the French for mandrake.

The legend of the hand was thought to be related to the legends of the mandrake, a plant that was believed to grow under the gallows from the seed of a hanged man. Their leaves were thought to resemble hands.

ROCKSTEADY ROMANCE 

Rocksteady Party’ features Asher G aka ‘The Rocksteady Daddy’ spinning original records from an extensive collection he partly inherited from his father who owned and ran a Jamaican sound system in and around Stoke Newington from the 1960’s to the early 80’s, and to which he himself has been diligently adding to since he was old enough to buy records!

We’ll have a special guest DJ Thomas Eiene!

From icy Oslo comes Thomas Eiene with his red hot record box! The main man behind the Norwegian capital’s “Get Ready!” club night which celebrates it’s 10th anniversary this year, Thomas has played at reggae nights and weekenders all over Europe, but this will be his first time in London. He promises to bring some extra special musical dynamite for your dancing pleasure!

https://bdrmm.bandcamp.com/Hailing from Hull, bdrmm are a quintet who infuse introverted small-town sketches, with the lush, musical expanse of shoegaze and dreampop.

After catching the ear of many with a handful of self-released singles, the band recently teamed up with label Sonic Cathedral for the release of their sublime debut EP, ‘If Not, When?’

Having gained fans in the likes of Huw Stevens, Steve Lamacq and John Kennedy, bdrmm’s ability to make adolescent disconnection sound this broad and exciting, marks them out as a band not to be missed.

OUR BACKSTORY:
ONCE UPON A TIME IN HACKNEY…
Our pub gets it’s name from a reverred magical item from ancient times, before texting, gluten intolerance and baby-mocha-choco-frappa-lattes.
This item was called a ‘hand of glory’, and it was made from the dried, pickled hand of a man who had been hanged.  When used as either a candle or candle holder it gave it’s owner special powers!
One of it’s alleged magical properties was to only give light to the holder, leaving others in darkness.

B BOYS and CAGEWORK
New York’s B Boys (Andrew Kerr, Brendon Avalos, Britton Walker) find inspiration in the chaos that surrounds them: the aggressive attitude and sonic lawlessness of the city they live, work, and breathe in every day. Their raw, yet meticulous style is characterised by rhythmic complexity, commanding riffs, and introspective lyrics that are as playful and self-aware as they are cutting.

ONE TRUE PAIRING
+ RETURNING VHS // ABL

“I wanted this to be a rock album, a protest vote against the field of good taste. One True Pairing is a name taken from internet fan fiction, where you write the perfect relationship you always wished existed. The idea of Prince Charming and Helpless Princess living happily ever after is no fun at all.” says Tom Fleming of his first solo album.

The former WILD BEASTS songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist is back with a self-titled debut that’s shaped by class frustration and self-despair.
