We are hosting a night of international antifascist solidarity. The night will start with a talk by comrades from the Libertatia squat in Greece who’s building was burned down by fascists. They’ll give an overview of the rise of the far-right in Europe and efforts anarchists are doing to combat this.
Then the party begins.
We’ve got a hectic and frankly quite random lineup of bands for your musical enjoyment.
’24 years on the road and stronger than ever, London’s legendary Inner Terrestrials are a stomping mix of dub, punk, ska, folk and general anarchic danceability.’
‘Sitting uneasily between straight-up nihilism and fresh-faced naivety, Killdren pen politically charged slapstick anthems.
They form the ideal soundtrack to the worst generation in history.’
’3 piece girl punk band’ and winner of ‘minimalist band bio’ award 2018.
The Chain of Panic
‘Two parts Lithuanian, one part South African H/C THRASH PUNK.’
More acts TBC shortly.
Tickets will be £5 on the door (donations if unwaged/carer) and all money raised will be split between Libertatia and imprisoned Russian anti-fascists.
DIY space sells cheap booze and vegan snacks. It is a members’ club. Open to members and their guests only. Membership costs £2 and takes 48 hours to take effect. Join and pay at diyspaceforlondon.org

First Thursdays @ Freedom Bookshop
An evening to raise funds for Decentre and the eco-anarchist project Feral Crust, a group based in the Phillipines.
The bookshop will stay open late, and there will be a vegetarian dinner and refreshments, as well as acoustic music and a selection of zines for sale.
Feral Crust are a group based in Davao in the Phillipines. They have started an autonomous land project that incorporates anarchist principles of mutual aid and non-hierarchical organising as well as awareness and care for the wildlife of the area. They aim to be self-sufficient, and we wish to attempt to help them in their goal.
There will also be a zine available to provide more information about the Feral Crust crew and their activities.
Check out more info about them at feralcrustproject.wordpress.com or get in touch with them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Big L. – Lead singer of The Dubrighters, playing acoustic tracks of his own, and some together alongside:
Anarchic Tendencies – Terrible raucous acoustic punk from one of the members of the Decentre collective.
Elajaff – Former London squatter returns for a visit just in time to entertain us with some bangers.
Noah Fabri – Fresh from performing the Freedom social at the “nottheanarchistbookfair”, Noah will bring their singer-songwriter multi-talented tracks to your attention.
George F. – Will rant at you about some stuff on the microphone.
If you are an artist or a group who is interested in participating in First Thursdays at Freedom get in touch with the bookshop at email@example.com. Anarchy and art, every first Thursday of the month!

Chris Clavin of Ghost Mice, Evans the Death. All We Got is Each Other – Fundraiser for Punk4MentalHealth – Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1239734839428215/
A special day show featuring Chris Clavin of Ghost Mice, with Special Guests Evans the Death. The show is a fundraiser for Punk4MentalHealth.
Chris Clavin plays guitar, sings and writes songs for the iconic American folk punk band Ghost Mice, and has also recorded and performed solo work as Captain Chaos. Chris is the founder of Plan-it-X Records, the seminal record label that has released music from AJJ (Andrew Jackson Jihad), This Bike is a Pipe Bomb, Ramshackle Glory, Martha and many, many more. He has written two books on life in the punk community (“Free Pizza for Life” and “Cursed in Cairo.”) On this special occasion, he will be singing a selection of songs and telling stories that roughly address themes of mental health in the punk community. www.plan-it-x.com
Evans the Death will also be performing. Evans the Death is an English six-piece band that filters their pop sensibilities through an art-damaged post punk lens. Formed in London in 2011 and a fixture on the British live scene for years, their newest record, Vanilla, was released by Fortuna Pop! in 2016 and is an aggressive and adventurous exploration of sound and words. Firmly established as a key part of the modern U.K. post punk movement, Evans the Death has been described by Rolling Stone magazine as “raw emotion [that] injects paralysis with weird power;” and by Q magazine as “manag[ing] to make humdrum everyday existence sound quite magical.” Evans the Death will be performing a stripped-back, quieter set for this unique day show. https://www.facebook.com/evansthedeath/
This show is a fundraiser for the London-based organization Punk4MentalHealth. Punk4MentalHealth focuses on the punk community and spearheads medical research regarding matters of coping with mental health issues, specifically those existing in the punk community, including those arising from physical disabilities. Ultimately, the organization seeks to understand those who are suffering, and help to improve the quality of their lives and reduce disenfrachisement from access and appropriate treatment both within and outside the mental health system.
Doors: 3:30 p.m.
Show: 4pm – 6pm
Tickets: £10 (limited capacity)
