    Fri 29 Jul

    7:45 pm


    Paper Dress Presents an evening of wonderful live music from our unique shop window stage in Hackney Central. On Friday 29 July we welcome…


    GEORGE WRIGHT is a Rock ‘n’ Roll maestro like no other. Specifically he is about 60 years younger and with a 100% flight safety record. George met The Keynote Speakers in Oxford c. 2007 and together they have twice toured Europe, played countless gigs across the UK and shared the stage with the likes of Mark Ronson and Calvin Harris.

    THE KEYNOTE SPEAKERS are musical virtuosos of critical acclaim. Comprising NaNa Lipps on the keys, Rawles on the bass, The Baby on lead guitar and Michael ‘crazy skins’ Boyle on the drums, the KNS are well schooled in the art of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

    sky coloured is a new 7-piece pop band based in south London, featuring the songs of Anthony T Jackson. Influences include funk, blues and the sacred choral tradition. An album – ‘Starting Time’ – produced by Ben Hayes, will be released later in 2016. Expect satisfying melodies and horn riffs thick as your head.


    Raucous, howling blues with a North Mississippi / New Orleans / South London kick.

    Kilimanjaro Presents: Folly Rae + support

    Thu 28 Jul

    7:45 pm


    We’re delighted to welcome FOLLY RAE for a headline show on Thursday 28 July.

    Limited tickets available here: http://myticket.co.uk/artists/folly-rae

    “Born in Hertfordshire with Norwegian extraction, Folly trained as a classical dancer before deciding to pursue her love for music.

    Spending time between her family home and various friends’ sofas around London, Folly found herself penning records for various artists and growing her reputation as a lead vocalist in the process. After creating some ripples in the industry she eventually started working with Sticky Studios, the production house behind artists such as Ed Sheeran & Paloma Faith. Folly’s magnetic vocals blended perfectly with Sticky’s world class sounds and she soon found her debut EP supported by the likes of Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1, DJ Target on BBC 1Xtra and websites such as i-D.

    With a style that’s been described as a cross between Lana Del Rey, Zara Larsson and Ellie Goulding, Folly Rae is one of the most exciting female prospects for 2017, emanating an alchemy of sounds that have the potential to captivate audiences worldwide. It’s no wonder the BBC chose her as one of just eleven artists to perform out in Texas for their 2016 SXSW showcases alongside the likes of Stormzy, Lapsley, Jake Bugg and Shakka.

    Never one to stand still, Folly Rae has been hard at work creating her follow up project ‘Hard To Love’. The 4-track EP features production from the likes of Sticky Studios and Nana Rogues (the genius behind Tinie Tempah’s latest smash ‘Girls Like’). The lead single ‘Hard To Love’ mixes Folly’s unmistakable vocals with a haunting production that can only be described as an unlikely but brilliant fusion of hiphop and alternative-pop. The record has attracted praise from key industry tastemakers – solidifying Folly’s position as the future of British pop.”

    Doors 7.45pm. Support TBC.
