Jabberwocky festival announces after party line-ups for Friday, Saturday & Frabjous Sunday
The Jabberwocky after party will be held across the weekend at Shapes in Hackney Wick and The Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, free to anyone with a Jabberwocky wristband for the respective day. The events will see acts from the festival and more join in the after hours festivities following the inaugural Jabberwocky Festival.
SHAPES On the Friday the inimitable Kode9 will be bringing his bass heavy mix of house, garage, dubstep, grime and hip hop to Shapes for what promises to be a jaw dropping set! Joining him will be patten playing a live set of his extremely varied and visceral mix of early house, shoegaze and post punk! Rounding off the Friday will be Primavera DJs Fra Soler and Coco. Saturday will see an extra special DJ set from the two-piece ever arresting electronic legends and ATP Recordings signees Fuck Buttons. Since their beginnings in 2004 their larger than life visceral, dense and noisy electro has seen them release three critically acclaimed albums of drone straddling, strangely melodic visceral techno. Joining Fuck Buttons DJs on the night will be purveyor of dark, melancholy techno and house Andy Stott alongside Pitchfork DJs and ATP resident DJ Declan Allen.
THE ACE HOTEL In addition to Shapes, festival goers who are wishing to keep going can head over to the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, a stones throw from the easily accessible Shoreditch High St station and many bus routes! Performing on the Friday will be Montreal post-punks Ought. Their sound often draws comparisons to Lungfish, Gang Of Four and Cap’n Jazz and their angular riffs mixed with more rounded textures certainly hearken back to these sounds. Rounding off the Friday will be Death Waltz Records Djs. Last seen for ATP at February’s ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ event Cherrystone's expert crate digging and eclectic exploration of sounds has earned him the status as the go to DJ for bands such as Wolf Eyes and Dead Meadow. He’ll perform on the Saturday alongside ATP Djs. To close the weekend Jabberwocky presents the very special Frabjous Sunday at The Ace Hotel a day of music beginning around brunch. Having surprised fans world wide with the release of their new record ‘Drop’ following their hiatus last year Thee Oh Sees will be playing another extra special set at The Ace Hotel following their festival set on the Friday. John Dwyer and co play garage punk, soul and psych of the highest order and to say that their live show is unrivalled would be an understatement! Brooklyn based Dutch minimalist composer Jozef Van Wissem will be joining the Sunday lineup to soothe souls with his heavy and hypnotic music. His beautiful compositions earned him the Cannes Soundtrack Award for his work on Jim Jarmusch’s ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’.
