The Island Halloween: Gonzo, Glitch and The Universe

  • the macbeth 70 Hoxton St London, N1 6LP United Kingdom (map)

Surreal party curators The Island return to The Macbeth for a Tequila drenched Sci-Fi trip-out on Halloween, 1st November 2014. The theme this time being Gonzo, Glitch and The Universe. Headlining this year with their own visual and lights show are the mighty Mars Red Sky across the way from Bordeaux. 

With their incredibly heavy and hypnotic performances, MARS RED SKY have been considered as one of the most thrilling live acts among the international stoner rock scene. Joining them on the line-up are high energy space rockers RIDDLES plus off the back of releasing a banger of a Double A Side 7” the rowdy, brooding and angsty Cassels. 

DJ sets from All Sorts of Pain, Adriann Storry and Jon Lemon keeping the party going till 4am. Riffs, Post-Punk, Punk-Punk, Hip-Hop, Rock N Roll, Desert Music and all your favourite danceable moonlit nostalgia with a techie spine. 

Usual visual fuckery from The Island team. Lights by Mcdeath.

Free tequila from the charming dudes at Cazcabel until 10pm. Will be distributed by gun bearing shot girls. Dress to terrify or confuse.

Playing live at Halloween this year are very special guests: 

Mars Red Sky
Driven by the huge success of their eponymous debut record, which was recorded in Spain’s mystic Bardenas desert and released in 2011, the Bordelais were quickly invited to play on the largest European stages with Kyuss Lives!, Dinosaur Jr and Sleep. With their incredibly heavy and hypnotic performances, MARS RED SKY have been considered as one of the most thrilling live acts among the international stoner rock scene.

RIDDLES
High energy space rock band from Hastings making a shit-load of riffy psyche noise.

Cassels
Cassels sound is equal parts stripped back punk rock, dark and heavy distortion and sometimes mega-sized rock riffage thrown in for good measure.

DJ sets from:

Adrian Storry
All Sorts of Pain
Jon Lemon

Free Tequila from CAZCABEL until 10pm. [no catch]
