Celebrate London at the free Bookstock 2011 street party
Celebrate London with a day of music, dancing, dressing up, games, food and booze and a lot of fun. Brought to you by Shoreditch venue The Book Club, Bookstock is going to rock your socks off!
Festival-favourite MC/DJ duo The Correspondents, whose sound is at once new and familiar, will be playing live, revamping vintage sounds for the modern ear. Expect jazz, swing and boogie-woogie laced with drum-loops, synths and bass.
Playing a boogie-licious DJ set, electro-pop-star Little Boots and her partner in dancefloor crime Lauren Verge (from 679 Artists) are going to rock the party. Expect disco, pop, bouncy house, and all manner of fun stuff as these two menace the Bookstock main stage.
Brassroots, East London’s biggest, brashest and bounciest eight-piece brass band, Disco Shed presenting their very own ‘Shedphone Disco, Musical Bingo to bring the Bookstock house down, and the original DIY disco, Bring & Share. Plus Bookstock has invited some of The Book Club’s favourites to join in the party: Electro Swing, Big In Japan and Swing Patrol.
A hard-living gang of grillers, thrillers and lady-killers that serves up a puzzling array of carnal delights… The Meat Wagon will be bringing the meat to Bookstock! And Leonard Street’s latest resident, ICN gallery, is opening its café to get into the Bookstock spirit. You’re invited in to chill out with some delicious Japanese foods and cold tea.
There will also be a small army of face painters and entertainers, a dress-up zone, games and dances. Bookstock – a day of music and magic, prancing and posing, balloons and bunting, cocktails and conga-dancing!
