Please support and sponsor Dave...

Dear all, on March 21st I shall be doing a 3 mile run in aid of Sport Relief. I would be more than honoured if anyone would like to sponsor this run as, alongside Comic Relief, all the money raised goes to good causes, both in this country and abroad. My sponsorship page can be found at

Hoxton show and free mp3!!...see what Simon Fierce Panda has written....

On Monday March 8th 2010 HATCHAM SOCIAL end another round of freshly baked live dates for their ‘You Dig The Tunnel, I’ll Hide The Soil’ campaign with a headline show back home in East London. That show looks very much like this:

ADVANCE TICKETS FROM:!/event.php?eid=287614846177&ref=ts

You may have noticed something sitting in the trees, something lurking through the looking glass. That ‘something’ is the release of Tim Burton’s ‘Alice In Wonderland’. And some of the people who have ‘noticed’ are your favourite indie hipsters and ours HATCHAM SOCIAL, who will be paying homage to the legacy of Lewis Carroll by playing with the Queen of Hearts, romping with the White Rabbit and tipping their hats to the Mad Hatter.

More specifically, HATCHAM SOCIAL intend to show Jans Svankmajer‘s ghoulish version of ‘Alice’ as they play. And as if that wasn’t enough they have decided that anyone and everyone who buys a ticket for Monday’s event gets a free mp3 of ‘Jabberwocky’, a mighty excerpt from their even mightier ‘You Dig The Tunnel, I’ll Hide The Soil’ album (out now on fierce panda records), whizzed straight to their in-boxes.

To get those paws on that ‘Jabberwocky’ mp3 all you have to do is buy a ticket for the – ahahaha – Hoxton Social show and send your Bar & Kitchen ticket purchase number to and she will do the rest. And of course if you have already brought a ticket then you will already be in possession of a ticket purchase number so you are more than welcome to partake of this Carroll-themed offer.

Support at the Bar & Kitchen comes from LUNAR YOUTH, who sound like “the drive along the Pacific coast” (and whose singer is a cross between Michael ‘Hutch’ Hutchence and Wayne Coyne), while twisted newcomers ADVERT will be bringing the white noise. Now that’s magic…

In collaboration with Cool For Cats we present...SUMMERTIME!



The last Friday of every month, Toby and Finn from Hatcham Social join regular cohorts Cool For Cats to bring you a shiny new night, Summertime. They'll be bringing sunshine to even these bleak mid-winter evenings with a Vitamin D rich selection of West-Coast pop-Nuggets, '60s, doo-wop and beach-front promenade Mod classics. They will also be sharing a parasol with the darker edges of '80s and '90s indie, newly unfurled gems and future classics.

The evening is likely to consist of these types of delights:

Bowie, Echo And The Bunnymen, Lou Reed, The Maccabees, The Drums, The Associates, The Horrors, Bill Hailey, Little Richard, Orange Juice, Depeche Mode, The Beach Boys, Elastica, The Smiths, Vivian Girls, Carl Perkins, Buddy Holly, Jesus And Mary Chain, Joe Meek, Roxy Music, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
