Electric Land Blues

Electric Land Blues are proud to announce that on Friday 01 February 2019 the Coconut Club will be returning bringing live music and righteous vibes to you all!

That’s right, after the success of previous nights, the Coconut Club will return to George Tavern with three excellent bands and a vinyl only DJ spinning classic dancefloor fillers. What better way to see out dry January and welcome in the first Friday following a month of sobriety than with some live music and plenty of alcoholic beverages?!!

Bands that appearing on the night are:

Headline Act:

Electric Land Blues – Righteous grooves and hard rockin’ riffs from London’s own Blues Rock Monsters. We’ll be joined onstage by a couple of special guests too.

Support Acts:

Tiger Moths – Beautifully crafted, Americana inspired blues tunes from four Cats who aren’t afraid to rock it up when necessary.

Friend of Dave – Joining us again with his one-man overdriven beatbox Blues vibe it’s Friend of Dave!

Then we have:

DJ Yamabushi – Spinning classic vinyl until 3.30am, the master of the wax disc DJ Yamabushi returns…

And it’s all taking place at the wonderful George Tavern, 373 Commercial Rd, London E1 0LA.

Doors are at 7pm and entry is £5. You don’t get much in London for a fiver these days but if you support the Coconut Club you’ll be getting three top bands, a DJ and you’ll also be supporting the George Tavern and helping another classic longstanding London venue fighting closure

Mariachi Xmas Extravaganza

¡¡Our 6th annual XMAS XTRAVAGANZALA!!

That's right gringos and gringitas, it's that (most won-der-ful) time of the year again...the Xmas leggings are on the fireplace a-warming up, the mulled tequila is on its way and the LADvent calendar will be here before you know it.

We'll be playing all the usual Xmas bangers and maybe some new ones too - although we probably won’t have learnt the chords/words by then so they’ll be played at the usual impeccable/imbecile standard. 

It'll be £5 to get in, all in aid of raising money for charity, so come on down and let's get seasonally silly together.

¡¡FELIZ NAVIDAD!!

An Evening With Joe Holtaway, Eli Carvajal & Joshua K (yona)

Eli Carvajal - A songwriter who shows lyrical depth and emotional resonance beyond his years. He writes songs that speak of yearning melody and direct poetry, and his dynamic performances are exuberant & heartfelt. Listen here - elicarvajal.bandcamp.com

Joe Holtaway - Joe writes songs inspired by involvements in the social justice and peace movement and a belief in the power of song to bring people together. 'A fine songwriter' - Tom Robinson BBC6 Music. Listen here - joeholtaway.com

Joshua K - of the band, Yona, plays songs melancholic in tone, with moments that lift. Inspired by relationship and wonder, fragility and contemplation. For fans of Elliott Smith, Andy Shauf, Sufjan Stevens. Listen here - Soundcloud.com/yonabanduk 

Entry is free, but we will be raising money on the evening for the organisation, Rising Up! who are calling for a fundamental change of the political and economic system, to one which maximises well being and minimises harm. Concerned for the well-being of people and planet and no longer prepared to wait for Government to wake up, they have been inspiring and mobilising the public, organising a series of actions and protests under the name, EXTINCTION REBELLION, that will be taking place throughout November in hope to get voices heard. 

Please check out their websites for more information on actions, and what they do:

Krautrock Karaoke

to Nov 30

Krautrock Karaoke


Krautrock Karaoke--
Since its birth in March 2013 this long, loud and anarchic night has provided a space for disciplined hedonism and indulgent improvisation of a strictly kaleidoscopic order.

KK invite musicians to perform krautrock songs from CAN, NEU!, FAUST etc LIVE!

'KK Rules'
There are hundreds of amazing krautrock tunes but we can't just play all the songs and musicians need to know at least basic chord progression of the song. 
If you have song in your mind that want to hear live, just post it on this event wall and most 'Liked" song will be performed by finest musicians around in town. 
We will play the song in decreasing order of the number of ”Liked" they got.
So..UPLOAD A SONG and 'LIKE' IT!

Musicians and DJ TBA

A Portrait of the Artist at The George Tavern

It's been a while in the making but we - that's me, Dzifa Benson and Culturised Magazine - are so thrilled that our night (hopefully the first of a regular series), A Portrait of the Artist is finally imminent. It's dedicated to words and art in all modes of performance at the iconic The George Tavern. 

We were keen to bring together artists of different stripes on the same bill..... in a night that features poets, perforrmance artists, singers, musicians, theatre makers, comic absurdists and artists who are not easily categorisable.... and by heck, we think we're about to do it! 

And with our "Work-in-Progress" section, there's space for artists to try out something that's been worked on but isn't quite the finished product that could use a bit of friendly audience feedback. I'll be your host for this exciting line-up of artists. Come join us!
