Tomorrow night we’ll be pulling on our tightest skinny jeans, getting massive 80s asymmetrical haircuts and dusting off our white-rimmed Fixies. Why? We’re going to Hoxton for the first ever amazing COMICA CLUB NIGHT at The Book Club of course!
And you can come too! For a mere £5 on the door, you get a whole evening of exciting Comics-Art-Music-Film Happenings from 7pm to midnight.
Hellraisers creative team, Robert Sellers and JAKe will be putting on a live art and comedy performance of their graphic multi-biography of Richard Harris, Richard Burton, Peter O’Toole and Oliver Reed featuring the very best drinking stories from the graphic novel.
And just in case you missed the review in the Independent, Daneet Steffens had this to say about Hellraisers:
‘a match made in Hollywood heaven … an enjoyable, crazy ride though the mint decades of British and American stage and screen. Plenty of familiar faces popping up – Bogie and Bacall, Russell Crowe, Peter Sellers, Marlon Brando, Sean Connery, Michael Caine, Albert Finney, Lenny Bruce, Omar Sharif and both Audrey and Katharine Hepburn – all brought to unerring life by the telling shape of eyebrows, noses or lips.’
The rest of the entertainment is great too: Our friends at Nobrow are bringing artists Isabel Greenberg and Katya Spitzer to The Book Club. Isabel will be drawing live and Katya has an exhibition of the original artwork from her new book. As if that weren’t enough, there’ll be giant two-man action-painting by Savage Pencil & Chris Long, film chat with comics creator and comedian Steve Aylett these tasty treats will be bathed in horizon-expanding projections and interspersed with comics-themed music by The Stool Pigeon‘s acerbic rock satirist and DJ savant Krent Able.
So, half shave your head, stick a lobster on a lead (dogs are so last week, didn’t you know?) and slip on some transparent skinnies. And remember, you’re in East London, so even when you’re partying like its 1999 at The Book Club – you need to maintain a pained expression like someone has just dropped a Freitag fulla vinyl on your lobster . See you in Hoxton!
