LIVE JAZZ JAM

After a well earned Christmas break, the Rio Kai Quartet returns in 2019!

Join Boris Latinov on guitar, Jamie Murray on drums, Rio Kai on double bass and Tamás Gyurcsó on sax plus special guests for this intimate jazz jam with 2 sets and DJ Jazzintime spinning vinyl in between.

These musicians bring you a fresh and energetic approach to mainly a hardbop jazz repertoire with jazz classics and their own compositions. And for those musicians out there, you can join them on stage to jam.

From the bar, we have speakeasy cocktails, craft and organic drinks. In the kitchen, we have Slow Fire London whose menu is inspired by middle eastern flavours combined with the best of British seasonal ingredients with BBQ and sharing mezes at it's heart. The meat is British and hand selected from Smithfields market, as is the produce from New Spitalfields market. The menu includes vegetarian and vegan options. Slow Fire London sources locally and sustainably wherever possible and the menu is freshly prepared. They are also committed to 100% compostable cutlery and crockery.

Hot Automations presents:

VARIANCE SERIES #2

We are back with our second event for electronic lovers!

Line Up:

V-Stok (Live Set)

V-Stok is a live electronic music performer whose musical journey has taken him to explore a multitude of genres such as techno, ambient, IDM and also from an earlier life influences of grunge, post-rock and psychedelia.
His performances are a contradictory juxtaposition of warm nostalgia and sinister futurism. Check out his recent EP Liftoff:

Live at Dronica (excerpt):

----------------------------------------------------------------

Il Santo Bevitore (Live Set)
Blackened Tribal / Ritual / Noise / Drone

Inspired by ancient rites and practices, IlSantoBevitore continues his ethnomusicological research on ethnic electronics. The working sound palette is a mixture of blackened tribal, ritualistic percussions, raw beats, lo-fi noise and hypnotic vocal ceremonials. He recently released two new Eps ‘Realm of consciousness’ via Aurora Borealis Recordings, which explores the theme of percussions and shamanism, the connections between each other, using repetition codes as a key to hypnotise and entrance the listener, aiming to blur the distance between practitioner and listener. And the latest ‘Madrighe’, a heavy and intense mantra about Mediterranean profane ritualism, out on 7” via Champion Version. ‘Madrighe’ is the first of a series works dedicated to ancient themes from Sardinia Island, IlSantoBevitore homeland.

ABOUT THIS FILM (ON AIRDRAFT)

Nick Jordan/Clara Casian, 2017, UK, 59’

A documentary portrait of Braziers Park School of Integrative Social Research (Braziers), a resident community and progressive college exploring co-existence, collective work and our place in nature. Centred upon insights from current residents and members, the film interweaves scenes of daily life with the natural features, architectural characteristics and diverse cultural history of the community.

Set in the wider context of intentional communities, sustainable living, and the economics ofpostcapitalism, Intentional Community explores the ‘sociobiological’ ideas of Braziers’ founders -psychiatrist Norman Glaister and educationalist Dorothy Glaister, who established the community in 1950 as a social experiment in group co-existence. Today, Braziers is the longest-running secular resident community in the UK, and hosts courses and festivals such as Supernormal.

Structured with a collaged, layered approach, the composite film makes correspondences between the past and present, combing interior and exterior spaces of the gothic manor house with material from Braziers’ archive of photographs, audio recordings and film; including scenes from a Situationist gathering in 1964, attended by writers Alexander Trocchi and Jeff Nuttall, artist John Latham and psychiatrist R.D. Laing. Intentional Community also explores Braziers’ links to the Common Wealth political party, the Order of Woodcraft Chivalry/Kibbo Kift and GrithFyrd peace camps, reflecting Braziers’ deep-rooted social values, progressive ideas on education, ecological awareness and pertinent links to the counterculture.

Original soundtrack score by Lord Mongo.

ABOUT THIS FILM (ON AIRDRAFT)

Brecht Debackere, 2016, Netherlands, 65’

Knokke, Belgium. A small mundane coastal town, home to the beau-monde. To compete with Venice and Cannes, the posh casino hosts the second World Festival of Film and the Arts in 1949, organized in part by the Royal Cinematheque of Belgium. To celebrate cinema’s 50 year existence, they put together a side programme showcasing the medium in all its shapes and forms: surrealist film, absolute film, dadaist film, abstract film. The side programme would soon become a festival in its own right called Exprmntl, dedicated to experimental cinema, and would become a mythical gathering of the avant-garde, championing Expanded Cinema and the integration of multimedia arts, music and non-cinema spaces. Exprmntl knew only five editions, in 1949, 1958, 1963, 1967 and 1974 but those five editions became known as the most legendary of all experimental film festivals.

The documentary Exprmntl tells the story of experimental film through the history of this festival, a history which tells us how we came to understand what we watch, a history which questions the very nature of film and how a big part of how we understand our world relies on the very nature of moving images, very much in line and a source of inspiration for LSFF’s programming.

FOOD & DRINK

You can also enjoy a range of organic, independent and fair-trade drinks and lunch from the guest vegan kitchen at this totally unique creative space by the River Lea in Hackney Wick.

After a packed programme during the day, Satrurday culminates in the Emo Video Jukebox.

ABOUT THE EVENT

After gestating for the better part of the Nineties, emo broke through to the MTV2 mainstream in the early Aughts, suckering in the angsty young hearts and existential woes of a million kohl-eyed teens.

For LSFF’s Saturday night offering, don your skinniest skinnies and come revel in your nostalgia for the millennium’s last true subculture. We’re throwing it back with a music video jukebox from the pre-broadband golden age of punk rock and emo, featuring directors Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry and the music of Taking Back SundayJimmy Eat WorldRival Schools and many more.

FOOD AND DRINK

You can also enjoy a range of organic, independent and fair-trade drinks and lunch from the guest vegan kitchen at this totally unique creative space by the River Lea in Hackney Wick.

LONDON SHORT FILM FESTIVAL // A SIDESHOW GROTESQUERIE: LONE TAXIDERMIST PERFORMS TRIFLE

TRIFLE.jpg

We’re very excited to annouce we’re hosting the London Short Film Festival in January, alongside the ICARich Mix LondonRegent Street Cinema and Curzon Cinema Soho . On Sat 12 and Sun 13 January, the Air Draft returns to Grow and throughout the weekend, films and performances will be shown on this floating pavillion and inside Grow itself. Read our blog for the full programme of events.

ABOUT THIS PERFORMANCE (ON AIR DRAFT)

Fresh from the twisted machinations and fertile imagination of Cumbrian-born, London-dwelling artist and seer Natalie Sharp, Lone Taxidermist’s debut album Trifle is a gallery of grotesquerie not recommended for either the nervous of disposition or lactose intolerant. Arriving from a nocturnal world of sex and skullduggery, these irreverent and outlandish ditties exist on a unique psychic realm in which the profane and profound happily step out together on the lash - a collision between the high-maintenance and the kitchen sink that’s a feverish spectacle tobehold. The live experience of this musical and visual journey takes us into the unruly depths of sploshing, gender bending, food porn and squelchy mass ritual. Lone Taxidermist’s utterly bizarre and otherworldly dominatrix tactics, all wrapped up in plastic, turn audiences members into exhibitionists.

Invariably on the lookout for new and surreal dimensions of expression, Sharp’s malicious metier lurks somewhere between the eldritch diva manifestations of Diamanda Galas and the wry reflections of Victoria Wood, yet equally driven by a magpie spirit and conceptual chutzpah redolent of Leigh Bowery and an acidic wit damaged by John Cooper Clarke. It’s a stylistic path that has led to her being increasingly over-subscribed as collaborative maverick of choice for a dizzying array of artists, including recent work with Jenny Hval and Gazelle Twin.

You can also enjoy a range of organic, independent and fair-trade drinks and lunch from the guest vegan kitchen at this totally unique creative space by the River Lea in Hackney Wick.

WINTER SOLSTICE // OPEN DECKS

WINTER SOLSTICE // OPEN DECKS

The world 'solstice' comes from the Latin solstitium meaning 'Sun stands still' because the apparent movement of the Sun's path north or south stops before changing direction. At the winter solstice, the apparent position of the Sun reaches its most southerly point against the background stars.

We mark the solstice with an evening of mind-alternating vinyl to warm hearts and souls. Local DJs are invited to dig deep to share their records to bring some light to the darkest day of the year.

Msg us if you want a slot or email on hello@growhackney.co.uk

Mulled wine and cider, kombucha and a range of ethically sourced drinks available as well and seasonal wraps and sweet potato fries by Slow Fire London

DIRTWIRE // SWAMPTRONICA // ACOUSTIC & ELECTRONIC
Dec

to Dec 15

DIRTWIRE // SWAMPTRONICA // ACOUSTIC & ELECTRONIC

A truly phenomenal band drop by on their world tour to play a very special FREE gig in Hackney Wick!

Dirtwire is a traveller’s collage of Earth-borne instruments and electronic sounds foraged from Electric Forest to the mountains of Tuva. From their home on the west coast of the United States to far-flung destinations all over the world, these troubadours are welcomed for speaking the most unifying language there is: music. Swamptronica, Spaghetti-Step, Electro-Twang — whatever you want to call Dirtwire’s music all that matters is it's extremely danceable!

Dirtwire, comprised of lifelong friends and musicians Evan Fraser, David Satori (Beats Antique) and Mark Reveley, are touring now in support of their new record “Road Goes All Night” and we're thrilled they'll be gracing the stage at Grow on Fri 14 December.


Every live set is a magician’s surprise show, an invitation to experience instruments that are usually heard only as samples in electronic music. It is a celebration of the art of the instrument, not just the sound you can record from it.

An important part of this journey has been acknowledging and honoring the traditions of indigenous populations, working to raise awareness about the challenges they face, and calling attention to their musical traditions and how the band has incorporated and drawn influence from them. Collaborations towards this end have included Tuvan throat singer Kongar-ol Ondar’s last musical recording, Mamadou Diabaté, the Grammy-winning Malian kora player, Vieux Farka Toure the legendary Malian guitarist, and Robert Yuldashev, Russia’s celebrated kurai flute virtuoso.
