 UPCOMING EVENTS

Sun Oct 26 @19:30 - 11:00PM
Pale Seas

In the summer of 2011, having dropped out of University, Jacob Scott was asking himself PSquestions wondering where his life might be heading. Jaded by formal education, he did the only thing that had ever provided him real joy – writing music. With an old acoustic guitar and a 4-track cassette recorder, he holed himself up in his Leytonstone flat and began work on a set of songs that would change his world entirely. Reverb-drenched and otherworldly, the music from those first recordings was beautiful and bitter-sweet. Recalling deep, honest emotions of love and anguish, pain and joy. Tinged with a sadness that was also reticently uplifting (as heard onSomething or Nothing“), Jacob captured a sprit that speaks to the heart. One filled with all the torment and illation of a young man coming to grips with himself and the world he inhabits. Realising his music had potential, Jacob moved back to his hometown of Southampton and put together a band of old school friends and band-mates from former musical projects. Graham Poole was recruited to play lead guitar, Matthew Bishop playing bass, and Jacob’s then girlfriend Zealah Isabella Anstey on backing vocals. Together they briefly named themselves Netherlands, before settling on Pale Seas and began to rehearse Jacob’s songs. Their first studio session with producers Jimmy Robertson & Demian Castellanos (Klaxons / Big Pink / Last Shadow Puppets) revealed the true promise of the fledgling band and Pale Seas’ first single “Something or Nothing“, with B-side “Amour“, was released in March 2012 on 7″ vinyl by Fear & Records (UK) and Fastcut Records (Japan). Gaining a huge amount of interest, the single sold out within days of release, was included on Radio 1′s Introducing playlist, and won them a host of shows and support slots with the likes of The War on Drugs, Beach Fossils, and Jacob’s childhood musical heros The Lemonheads. Follow up double A-side single “Bodies” / “My Own Mind” continued to build on their success. This time enlisting Mercury nominated Paul Butler (The Bee’s / Devendra Banhart / Michael Kiwanuka) on production duties at his studio on the Isle of Wight. Paul brought with him a sound which once again elevated the band beyond their humble beginnings, with thick, luscious soundscapes underpinning Jacob’s ever developing song writing.

Free film screening of the film "Speciesism" along with a free vegan buffet

In 1975, a young writer published a book arguing that no justifications exist for considering humans more important than members of other species. It slowly began to gain attention. Today, a quickly growing number of prominent individuals and political activists are adopting its conclusions. They have termed the assumption of human superiority speciesism. And, as a result, they rank these animal factories among the greatest evils in our history. Speciesism: TheMovie brings viewers face-to-face with the leaders of this developing movement, a nd, for the first time ever on film, fully examines the purpose of what they are setting out to do.

The theme is celebrity couples who have broken up. This is a loose theme, and of course you can make it spooky or come as something else entirely.

There will be exciting drinks and mischief on the night to look forward to...


Please note that we do have a safer spaces agreement and take this into consideration when deciding on how to dress. People wearing costumes that contravene it will be turned away.
