Returning to The Social after hosting NYE 4 years ago with guests including The Rumble Strips and Young Knives, Rockfeedback, Transgressive Records and Heavenly Jukebox have teamed up for a special event at the West End's finest venue, The Social, to see in 2010.
This year's event will feature a special performances from both ED HARCOURT and JOHNNY FLYNN.
Johnny will be opening the festive hoe-down with an unmissable special intimate solo performance. In what's set to be truly memorable eve, Johnny will be followed by the one-and -only Ed Harcourt.. Expect special surprise collaborations from a man who puts the class in classic, and a wonderfully festive performance to start the night.
Ed Harcourt has long been a close friend of both Rockfeedback and Transgressive Records, appearing frequently in the earlier stages of his career at Rockfeedback's Basement Club. What with the special nature of a New Years occasion and the teaming up with Ed's former label Heavenly for this year's celebration, a special guest such as Ed could not have been a more natural choice. Harcourt is undoubtedly one of the UK's finest talents, having also collaborated with everyone from Yusuf Islam to The Streets, and released a collection of critically acclaimed albums.
Johnny Flynn by now needs no introdution. Posterboy for the modern folk scene, actor, poet, artist and songwriter Flynn has flown off into a diverse and enthralling wash of sound that has seen debut LP ‘A Larum’ hailed universally the world over by critics as one of the most important folk albums of the last decade. We're thirlled to announce he will be opening the night with a full early evening special solo set.
After midnight downstairs also sees "The Clock Club". A big clock on stage and a gong hit dramatically every half hour, marking a change of genre/musical style! Each special guest DJ will be playing concept sets ranging from indie smashes to bangra and dubstep set to keep sneakers moving until the early hours of 2010. DJ talents so far include Goldierocks, Rockfeedback, Transgressive, The Heavenly Jukebox, and Home.Under.Ground
We probably don't need to stress that Tickets are VERY limited due to a very small capacity (200), and are already selling quickly and will be gone soon unless you're quick! They are priced at £15 and can be purchased here. The venue is The Social, which can be found at 5 Little Portland Street, London, W1W 7JD.
