A new club night of "radical" DJs and musicians in association with trade unions and community groups starts in north London this week.
The first event features My Elastic Eye, Terrible Splendour, DJ Stix (Electric Dreams Club) and is at Barfly, 49 Chalk Farm Road, Camden, NW1 8AN, on Monday, October 25 from 7pm to 11.30pm. Tickets cost £5.
There will be campaign stalls as well as music.
The organisers say: "Union City brings together the art of resistance with the resistance of artists – standing up against the effect of the Government's cuts, economic gloom and austerity, while getting down with the best of a new generation of radical young musicians."
More details here.
The event has been set up by union activists - mainly from the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) - money raised is pledged to union campaigns and there will be union speakers.
It's a great idea - as long as there are very few speakers.
Trade unions should be do more social and cultural events - it's the best sort of social networking.
See you there.
