Looking ahead to August here are five very different events that make us proud of what happens here on Little Portland St . .

Friday 1st August
Our flagship Friday night welcomes back original Socialist and gentleman DJ, Justin Robertson. Anyone who has seen him play anywhere over the last few months will know that he is on genius form at the moment. One of the sets of the weekend in the Stonebridge Bar at Glastonbury.
It is always a pleasure and he is always brilliant + this is a FREE PARTY!

A night featuring David Stubbs author of Future Days: Krautrock and the Building of Modern Germany, a screening of CAN live footage and Krautrock Karaoke !!
The Faber Social seems to keep growing in many fantastic ways – new books, big events, records, tours and more . . but you can find them here every month, where it all began.

Wednesday 27th August
Could have chosen any of the four Wednesdays in August really but we think the 27th will be extra special with secret guests (known for now as) Annabel Dream Reader playing for the first time in the basement and support from Sun Machine.
The Deep Hum now happens every Wednesday night with the very best new noise makers playing each week and lots of special unannounced guests too.
We keep saying it but this is basically a legendary London night out – madness every week.
London’s greatest DJ, Rob Pursey and Bobby ‘Champagne’ Jr host one of the very best midweek parties anywhere in the world!
Tuesday 26th August
An evening presented by Ian Rawes of the London Sound Survey featuring rarely-heard and never-heard recordings of the city’s life from the 1950s back to the late 1880s. These sounds, captured by broadcasters and amateurs alike, bring to life a rowdy, vocal London filled with vigour and eccentricity. Lavender sellers and fortune tellers, the vanished songs of schoolchildren, fire stations and sewer workers, the propaganda and reality of the Blitz – all these and much more are lined up for a night not to be missed by anyone with an interest in the history of recording, of radio, or of London itself.
