FATBOY SLIM AT THE SOCIAL SAVE THE SOCIAL FUNDRAISER
Saturday 23rd March
This Saturday night we’re honoured to have Fatboy Slim play a special fundraiser party for us. Norman got in touch straight away when he heard about the Save The Social campaign and we’re incredibly excited to be able to do this party just a week later, after the People’s March. The night will feature a headline set from Fatboy Slim and loads of amazing DJs in support (and still to be announced) over both floors.
Tickets go on sale at 1400 on Tuesday 19th March (max 4 per person) and priced at £25 – 100% of ticket proceeds will go towards the ongoing campaign.
The Social is the legendary West End venue that’s hosted a list of names that includes the Chemical Brothers, Beck, Edna O’Brien, Wolf Alice, Adele, Bon Iver, Aphex Twin, Florence and the Machine and Cold War Steve. It is currently under serious threat of closure just as it reaches the milestone of its twentieth birthday. The bar’s original founders need to raise money to buy a controlling share in the venue from the leaseholder in order to keep The Social open. Unless new investment is found in the next 2 weeks, the iconic venue will be forced to close its doors. The music venue needs to raise £95k asap as a down payment to stop the sale and take the site off the market. That payment would then trigger a second round of private investment with that aim of the original founders taking full control of The Social lease to secure its longterm future. The Fatboy Slim party will hopefully help The Social reach that goal – in the meantime, please check the Crowdfunder for additional rewards and parties, including a special one-off Chemical Brothers show, an art print by Jeremy Deller, an all-star literary night from Faber Social and Hamish Hamilton, a bass guitar and gig tickets from Manic Street Preachers, t-shirts, prints and much, much more still to come.
