BIG CHILL BAR :: TUBBS :: 10/08/05

The former tour DJ for The Dirty Beatniks and rapper Silver Bullet has been making a name for himself in London for quite some time now with his solo releases on Exceptional and more recently with Steve Harris as Atlantic Conveyor. His latest single, “Five Day Night” features Dallas from Fat Freddys Drop as well as sterling remixes from both the Drop and Brad Baloo (The Nextmen).

Doors: 7pm til 12am
The Big Chill Bar is on Dray Walk, just off Brick Lane, London E1 6QL and serves great (and well priced) food and drinks.

CARGO :: BBQ SESSIONS:: 21/08/05

For this Sunday session we are very proud to present a musical smorgasbord for your pleasure.

Our “headline” act is an acoustic set by the sensation of 2004, Fly My Pretties. Main man Barnaby Weir and friends will perform a few numbers from their “Live At Bats” album and maybe even preview some newer material if we are lucky. Please note that due to some members of the ensemble being on tour or back home, this will not be a full Fly My Pretties set.

Barnaby will also be playing some music under his other guise, the fabulously funky Flash Harry and we have another Black Seed (and Flight of the Conchord’s maestro) Bret Mckenzie showcasing his own side project, The Video Kid. Last not but not least, there will be poetry and performance from Sistar Spacific and friends. Manning the decks in and around these performances will be the ever funky and eclectic Ms Mill, the wonderfully deranged Mikey Ray and the all encompassing LOOP soundsystem.

Cargo chefs will be cooking Kiwi delicacies outside on the barbie – not sure exactly what yet but green lipped mussels, lamb cutlets and other delights were mentioned.

Doors: 4pm til 12am

Entrance: £5 b4 6pm or in advance from Ticketweb / £7 after

Cargo is at 81 Rivington Street, EC1: the nearest tubes are Liverpool Street or Old Street and it’s website is
