Unhinged, a unique fusion of clubbing and arts from Berlin will make its London debut when it opens its doors to London’s culture vultures on Friday 23 November at Electric Brixton for a night of live music, visual arts, fashion and film.
Yellow – a neo-Giallo short film in which a reclusive man is on the hunt for a vicious serial killer in neon-lit Berlin will be screened. Ryan Haysom’s cult horror flick has previously been shown at FilmFour’s Frightfest and Screamfest LA and received rave reviews.
A live painting session by renowned street artist Blam will see a piece of his artwork created live at Unhinged, and projected across the venue for all to see.
There will be over 70 pieces of home-grown art on display at Unhinged, ranging from installations, canvases, photography and sculptures which will be suspended from the main ceiling over the dance floor.
The music line-up features world champion beatboxer Shlomo, hotly tipped for 2013 international blues-trash cult band Quixote, foot stomping breakthrough rockers Lazarus and the Plane Crash as well as electro-pop diva Ysan Roche.
After the live shows, ‘Cover to Cover’ – the lovechild of London’s biggest indie club nights, ‘Buttoned Down Disco’ and ‘Guilty Pleasures’ – makes an exclusive comeback to rock the dancefloor with mashups and rare versions with Buttoned Down Disco and festival stalwart Christian Laing.
Surely, there hasn’t been such an overt fusion of clubbing and art since Andy Warhol frequented Studio 54.
