OOXXOO and the Albany – June 18th 2009


The Invisible


Fresh from a crazy six months supporting Hot Chip, the Doves and Foals, the Invisible are some of the most talented musicians to come out of South East London in the past few years. They are also some of the most well liked and most respected and it is a real pleasure to have them headline and showcase their work.

Laetitia Stereolab / Marie Lisbonne DJ Set

I’m over the moon to have both Laetitia and Marie spinning some records on the night as well as showcasing their joint project ‘Monade’. Marie’s other band Lisbonne opened the first OOXXOO night with an amazing performance and it is a privilege to have her back.Laetitia is the singer for Stereolab.


Monade is the nom de plume of Laetitia Sadier when she isn’t fronting Stereolab. Originally starting out as her bedroom-recording project, Monade is now a far bigger beast. For this night Laetitia will be playing with Marie from Lisbonne.

Monade – Wash and Dance



Exlovers recently finished recording an EP with Stephen Street [The Smiths, Blur] have been band of the week on Steve Lamacq twice and have spent the year on tour with Golden Silvers, Pete and the Pirates and Emmy the Great – pretty much they’re one of the best young bands around and to top it off some of the most lovely people you will meet.

Dimbleby & Capper


Laura Bettinson [aka Dimbleby and Capper] pours her sweet and sultry vocal styles over beautifully constructed songs and is currently in the studio working with one the most highly regarded producers in the industry [strictly hush hush right now]. She’s got a session coming up on the 3rd June with Radio One’s Huw Stephens, had her tracks showcased on Steve Lamacq’s show last week and is taking the music world by storm.

No Pain in Pop DJs

No Pain in Pop are great friends of OOXXOO and one of the best and most interesting record labels in London.

Whilst that is all going on in the theatre, through In the Cafe area the following will be touting their wholesome wares…

A Little Bazaar Market

A Little Bazaar’s mission is to bring you up and coming designers of craft, fashion and cakes. Also there are Record stalls, traditional jumble, badge making, Vintage clothes and more… They hosted their market at the previous launch night and we’re delighted they are coming back again


We came across Zineswap at the Take Courage Gallery about a month ago and thought it was one of the greatest ideas around.

Zineswap aims to be a resource through which people can swap their zines with one-another.
It also aims to become a vast archive of contemporary zine publishing, existing as both an online catalogue and an annual exhibition.

Please see their facebook group for more information or come down and talk to them on the night – http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=39825520658&ref
