Tickets: £10 ADV
Founded in 2017, MOOF is a psychedelic print magazine with a penchant for the more obscure. With ten issues to date, the magazine has amassed a worldwide following and loyal readership, and is currently stocked in the UK and USA. Inspired by the acid-drenched publications of the 60s/70s such as Oz and Gandalf’s Garden, MOOF’s goal is to keep the underground press alive and weird.
Surfing on a sun-drenched wave of psychedelia comes Brighton’s band of Merry Pranksters. Incorporating spiritual jazz, krautrock, tropicália and library music, Wax Machine have been a MOOF mainstay since the early days.
Hailing from East Sussex, psych folk duo Sairie’s shared love of folklore, mystery, nature and the landscape weaves into their hauntingly beautiful sound.
Innerstrings will be decking out The Social with a psychedelic light show, expect mind-expanding oil light projections at the MOOF exhibition and bar area upstairs, and trippy visuals downstairs.
Stone Club (DJs)
Wyrd psych and obscure bangers from Stone Club founders Lally Macbeth and Matthew Shaw.
MOOF founder/editor Melanie Xulu will be hitting the decks with her eclectic mix of psychedelic and underground vinyl.
Melanie Xulu is the founder and editor of MOOF Magazine, she grew up in rural North Cornwall and graduated in BA (Hons) Culture, Criticism & Curation from Central Saint Martins in 2021. Her work has been featured in Dazed, Record Collector, and BBC Radio 6. She also has a show on Soho Radio.
