GOAT GIRL headline the very first Quietus Social night next week.
After years, nay decades, of going to The Social to meet, eat, drink, dance, listen to great writers and hear great music, The Quietus is collaborating with the beloved venue for an ongoing series of gigs and get-togethers: The Quietus Social. (Took us ages to think of that name.)
Every three months - spring! summer! autumn! winter! - there’ll be bands, DJs, special little treats and very special guests. The first one is NEXT WEEK - on Wednesday 7 March - and tickets will be £5. We’ve just confirmed Goat Girl as our headliners and we are very excited. There’ll be other special guests and special treats, and we can’t wait to see you there.
In 1999 The Social opened in Little Portland Street. The brainchild of a record company whose offshoots included a hugely successful underground club night, The Social was set up with a simple manifesto – to provide great music and better booze to anyone who fancied tripping through the doors.
15 years later and still run by the original team who created it – Heavenly Recordings & The Breakfast Group – the bar is an award winning London institution. Designed back then by a partnership of David Adjaye and Will Russell (now of Pentagram) with the proviso of withstanding nuclear attack or – at the very least – the worst that people could chuck at it, The Social has launched over a million hugely successful hangovers.
