Babyshambles' Drew McConnell – Marky Mark – Alice Bambi
Insideout? at The Hoxton Pony has established itself as THE place to be in the East End – recently attracting acts as established as The Specials, Paloma Faith & The Libertines! Visually the place is one of a kind. The bar was designed by award winning designer come architect Yanik Allard of Ecole Camondo Paris – combining contemporary sculpture, fluorescent lighting and wildlife diorama – there really is no place quite like it.. The Pony’s darker personality is revealed in the basement, a demented, back-lit dance floor with the attitude of a contemporary East End drinking den. We’ve yet to mention the award winning drinks menu (2 for 1 cocktails between 6-9pm) and the tres-unique food menu serving seasonal British classics with a twist. All cocktails are mixed with seasonal, local produce at the highest standard – playing a big part towards the venues ‘Bar of The Year’ award last year!
This week see’s one of our resident headliners - Rock and Roll legend Drew McConnell – step back behind the wheels of plastic and steel. Most of you will know Drew as the ramshackle Bassist and backing vocalist of Babyshambles, what you might not know (until now) is that he’s also a damn fine DJ. Expect to hear anything from Grandmaster Flash to Underworld, 80’s electronica, Ska, Dance Hall & Northern Soul, Rock n Roll to Indie plus classics that take you back to a more innocent, beautiful time before pretense and drudgery took hold! Aside from Babyshambles, Drew plays bass and guitar regularly with the likes of Jamie T, Fionn Regan, Albert Hammond junior & Lethal Bizzle to name a few…. This Friday he’s bringing his finely tuned DJ set to the crowd at the Hoxton Pony, don’t miss out.
Joining Drew - our resident DJ’s Marky Mark + Alice Bambi will bring their diverse mix-up party to warm up the weekend. Expect to hear anything from Soul to RnB, 90’s HipHop to 80’s electronica, Ska & Mash ups, Rock n Roll and Indie.
There’s a reason the cream of the Capital choose to party with us week in week out – come down this Friday and find out for yourself!
