I Heart East London
"I ♥ East London is a new exciting concept that took over East London from June onwards. The idea behind is to showcase up and coming music from this particular area of the capital but also to promote music that has already painted the city’s landscape and culture. The event started to take place every 1st Thursday of the month at East London’s cool and popular venue CAMP Basement (City Arts and Music Project) but we have now decided to move to a more historic venue in East London music and launch at the Rhythm Factory beside Aldgate East Station.
Our aim is to show to London how the East is not only trending in the arts department but also for music. We cater not only for East London in particular, but any part of this side of the city (South East, East Central and East London).
We had an exciting launch night in June with special guests The Horrors doing a 90 minute DJ set for the night! Since then, we have had some great acts come and play for us: The Coolness, Islington Boys Club, Daytona Lights, ReMake ReModel, Black Daniel, Mafia Lights, Edit/Select, The First Loves, Waxhouse, Glitches and No Cars. We've also always managed to create some great deals to help people out with their budgets: first 20 tickets at £3, buy 1 ticket get 1 for free, all East London bands get in for free, anybody working in shop in East London gets 50% off etc.'
