Freedom Bookshop has signed up for the First Thursdays circuit in East London for venues (mainly art) to stay open late and provide free spaces for people to gather and socialise.
This first month is presented by some artistic members of the bookshop and the decentre social space upstairs.
Members of the Bookshop & Decentre present: Temporary Autonomous Alleyway Art* featuring live music, performance, autonomy and art – plus the bookshop will be open for all your anarcho-lit needs.
WONDRWOMN – The Girl Next Door, that raps. This North London artist specialises in crafting her own unique brand of ‘Grit Pop’, blending elements of Hip Hop, Psychedelic Soul and Funk. Her EP ‘The Girl Next Door, that raps.’ is available on Apple Music, iTunes, BandCamp. FB: Wondr Womn [www.facebook.com/wondrwomn]
ALICE KARVELI – an interdisciplinary mixed media artist whose work focuses on transformative performance, both live and on film, involving sculptural elements, hypnotic soundscapes, and a visceral kinaesthetic approach. “To drown/ To swim” is an inner dialogue between different aspects of Self, each in the process of emancipation from the clutches of their crutches.
MAD MAT VALENTINE – legendary street performer and urchin. No promotion necessary.
FREQ-SHOW – There are talented artists and then there is Freq-Show. So untalented and unsexy that it must all be an act. Kinky fire-based freak show, one not to be missed (as he’ll probably fall on top of you)
Plus tunes from INSTAMASH and artwork from Vytautas Unsane.
*Not to be confused with Temporary Autonomous Art!

Carnival Punks London brings you the first of (hopefully) many all-nighters ft. a buncha RAD bands/artists/DJs and ting bringing you some sick punk, hardcore, dub, hiphop jungle and whatever else we can cram in there!
Story is, I basically stumbled across a sick new creative space called the PAD (East London), the owners of which are game for some DIY PUNK GIGZZZ WOOOO! It’s a rad space, situated 20 mins East of Liverpool Street station (TFL line) in Chadwell Heath… I get what you’re thinking, thats FAR out right? Well, we kinda made this less of issue by making it an all nighter, the prospect of first train home in the morning eliminated all them tricky/expensive nightbusses and taxis (fuck them guys), so come down and fuckin party for CHEAP!
DONATION IN/CHEAP TINNIEZ 4 SALE:
FUCK DOOR MONEY: BOOZE!
BANDS TBC VERY VERY SOON- EYES PEELED! xoxo
P.s fb event says its “private”, this will be corrected once line up sorted

It’s that time of year again, so calling all punks and punk-curious for a family-friendly lark in the park. Water Lane entrance, walk up the path staying on the right to field in between the playground and the public toilets. Bring food, drink and a positive attitude. Possibly games again this year if “anarchists” don’t ruin it by cheating!
Please bring bags or recycling bags to pick up your litter so we can leave the park as we found it.
Gig nearby for afterwards… watch this space for details
