FRIDAY 26TH AUGUST, 8PM-12AM
SILVER FOX D'ASTRO CATH & PHIL TYLER BRITANIC GAMMA LANTERN (DJ SETS)
Making waves up and down the coast, Newcastle's all female band Silver Fox will 'break your hearts and blow your minds' with their mix of noisy lo-fi pop, minimal beats and wistful lyrics. Now imagine a surf band when the only surf they have ever witnessed is off a sewage-streaked radioactive beach in the northwest of England - and you have d'Astro. Sarcastic barking and discordant guitars compete with a stampede of drummage to make an entertaining post-punk racket. Firmly back on land, and needing no introduction, local Anglo-American duo Cath & Phil Tyler offer their unique blend of traditional and experimental folk music combined into a beautiful, raw, heartfelt sound that will ripple through your head long after the night is over. For your enjoyment, the evening will be accompanied by DJ sets from Britanic Gamma Lantern.

Club Ponderosa is a hybrid space designed by Matt Stokes to operate as part meeting house, nightclub, theatre, village hall and social club. Stokes first established Club Ponderosa during an artist's residency at 176, London. Drawing from the history of the building which was formerly a Methodist Chapel, and once home to the famous London Drama Centre, the aim of the club was to create an informal and flexible social-space that would foster new encounters between groups, and act as a catalyst for the creation of events designed and programmed in collaboration with people living or working in the Camden area. Club Ponderosa is also home to MASS, a sound system fabricated from donated parts and online speaker designs, which is pivotal to the functioning of the club.
Workplace Gallery is a contemporary art gallery run by artists.
