X-mas card making at Makerhood, The Dogstar Sunday 2 Dec. Funtimes!
December 2012 is special to us. It’s two years since our first Librarians Wanted gig at the Dogstar in Brixton - the very night we learned how to DJ. That gig was headlined by the magnificent Evans the Death, and it was the start of what’s been two amazing years and will hopefully be many more LW years even though we live in different places.
Our 2nd birthday is coming up at The Victoria in Mile End in a week and we hope you will be there! But now, a bit about our old home, The Dogstar, probably one of our favourite venues ever! (particularly the ballroom)
We were lucky to be back at this place on Sunday 2 of December. We played all our favourite songs (and some Christmas hits by Lisa Bouvier, The Pogues and Mariah Carey!) in the downstairs pub. It was a great atmosphere where people were making Christmas cards, there was pantomime and live bands - all hosted by the great local initiative Makerhood. Thanks so much for having us - we will be back anytime you’d like to have us!
Andrew Clarke from Makerhood sang some beautiful songs in a santa hat!
That eve we were asked to come back this coming Sunday (9 December), by the lovely people at Craftyfox Market. And of course we will! We will be based in the pop-up tea lounge in the 1st floor ballroom between 11am and 2pm, playing our indiepop and all kinds of music while eating cupcakes and having a cuppa or three. Then we’ll be buying the rest of our xmas pressies..
We hope to see you at the LW 2nd birthday at The Victoria…
We hope to see you at the Dogstar from 11am, perfect timing for cupcake brunch! And we also hope to see you on the 14th at The Victoria, Mile End, where our friends Stars in Coma, Lost Summer Kitten, Electrophonvintage and The Choo Choo Trains will play some lovely lovely songs. OH, and on the 18th at Victoria & Jacob and Hoshal Patrick’s Christmas Party where we’ll also be DJing, and last but not least Playhouse at the Waiting Room where LW’s ‘DJ Powar-Cliffe’ will rock the party with Nat and Lauren and some others. So much library theme music in December… and we hope you’ll be there!
