Saatchi Sweet Harmony Exhibition Late in Support of RCK

Line-up

Chris Liberator
BadGirlz (SP23)
Steve Bedlam
Jam Scones
Huggy

As part of Saatchi Gallery's LATES series for Sweet Harmony : Rave | Today, attendees are invited to enjoy exclusive after-hours access to the exhibition which includes a choice of partying in our Vinyl Record Shop and Rave Room where DJ Chris Liberator, BadGirlz (SP23/Spiral Tribe), Steve Bedlam, Jam Scones and Huggy play a fireband mix of Acid, Hard Techno and Rave. 

Bringing free flow beats and rolling rhythms are BadGirlz from SP23 Sound System; a creative collective of musicians that instigated the mighty Spiral Tribe Sound System as well as the underground recording studio and vinyl distribution organisation Network23.

Their reputation for the best and boldest underground raves (on beaches, up mountains or deep within the derelict industrial sprawl) preceded them. On an unstoppable roll across Britain and Europe, their convoy of sound system trucks rapidly became known as the source of a deep and inspiring fugitive groove.

From the UK Underground party to the Refugee Community Kitchen (RCK) in Calais, come and meet the people who once served up all night free parties in squats and fields and who now serve up nutritious food to vulnerable and displaced individuals in need, in the UK and abroad.

Head there early to hear how the UK Underground Party movement gave them the skills they now serve those in desperate need of sustenance and love - while also providing a moment in the day where people can gather and connect. 

Proceeds from tickets sold will go to Refugee Community Kitchen. 

-- Capacity in the the Rave Room is limited, book your tickets in advance to avoid any disappointment --

Level Up Supper Club

6:00 PM18:00

Level Up Supper Club

Come and join us in for a feast of delicious dishes from around the world in aid of Refugee Community Kitchen.

What’s included

We’ll be serving up a mouthwatering 3 course menu - all either sourced from the RCK recipe collection or from refugee friends who’ve been kind enough to share the secrets behind their favourite dishes from home.

There's a glass of wine or a soft drink and nibbles on arrival and you can BYOB for the table if you like. There will also be soft drinks and hot drinks available to purchase from the bar on the night.

The Menu

Even though I’m already super-excited about the food, as we’ll be sourcing as many seasonal ingredients as possible the full menu will be kept top secret until the night.

This way we can create a wide range of authentic and delicious meals from around the world using an awesome mix of local, sustainably sourced (where possible!) Sussex food. 

What we can tell you is that the menu will be completely vegetarian, with vegan options available on request - you can opt-in for this when you buy your tickets.

Each ticket bought also includes a contribution towards a supper club ticket for a refugee or asylum seeker in Brighton.

Allergy information

As the kitchen is used for multiple settings, unfortunately nothing can be guaranteed to be allergen or gluten-free - if you have any concerns at all about allergies or intolerances, please get in touch: jess@levelupnutrition.co.uk

The Common X Fox Fest X Rum Shack: Kwake Bass / More Like Trees

This special night is a rare London show from Rum Shack in association with Fox Fest to raise money for Refugee Community Kitchen (founded by The Common's very own Steve Bedlam) and ForJimmy.org. 

Featuring -

More Like Trees are born of festival fields and raucous warehouse parties, radiating individuality from every facet. Theirs is a sound like no other: foot-stomping, heart-pounding, and infectious. This is an altermodern melting pot of styles reimagined as acoustic dance music. A meeting of drum n bass and folk with knowing nods towards flamenco and gypsy influences that they call 'Strum n Bass'. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81wcA_A5y3o

Kwake Bass is regarded as one of the most established drummers in London. He's played in many contexts, ranging from musical director to one-man-band, for acts as varied as Jehst, Kate Tempest, Shabaka Hutchings and Karl R.Able. His new mixtape is the first instalment in a series of compilations of his solo work past and present.

https://kingkwakebass.bandcamp.com/album/kwake-bass-mixtape

The Fedz are a UK/US music collective from all races and backgrounds, working together for the common good. An anathema to the divisions in the world, sticking up a middle finger to the status quo.

https://www.thefedzmusic.com/

Hosted by - NattySpeaks / MC Spee (Dreadzone) / Natty Campbell MC

On the decks it's the RUMSHACK DJs -

Bashment Bish | DJ Fred | Sub:System (Lyrix Organix) | DJ Interrupt

+ more TBA
