Thursday 10th December, 7.30pm @ The Russet, Hackney Downs Studios, 17 Amhurst Terrace, London E8 2BT
Populace’s annual event is back.
After a brilliant night last year, we are thrilled to be back at The Russet. As the festive season will be in full swing, this year we’ve got a select line-up of acts to keep you on feet and the party going.
Performances start at 8pm with a dj and dancing throughout. From tranarchist pop outfits to political punk, x-rated poetry and creep folk – we celebrate 2015 with everything queer, counter-culture and camp.
This ain’t no scratch night.

Laura Ashley – normcore tranarchist pop outift, synth vocals and dresses brought to you by John Fitzpatrick and Archie Sinclair
