Radio Gagarin: Experiments in Sunday Socialism

Notting Hill Arts Club, 21 Notting Hill Gate, London W12

6pm – 1a.m. £5.

London’s only Balkan/Russian/Baltic/Gypsy/Klez/Mash/Thrash/Trash/KULTURKlash!!!

‘The Arts Club's most adventurous and anarchic night (and that's saying something)’ Time Out

The Commissar continues to pledge exclusive music from Austria’s hottest new band FATIMA SPAR UND DIE FREEDOM FRIES, with Edinburgh based Balkan mash-up ORKESTRA DEL SOL, Russian artist, Oleg Yanushevsky’s TERRA TRIO, performance from Friends of Gagarin, poetry from Tim Cumming, Marxist-Leninist alienation from art/animation/video installations for the Proletariat from state artists Adrian Philpott & Cathy Gale; frozen vodka & rakiya galore and resident DKs (Dancefloor Komissars) Max Reinhardt & Misha Maltsev sweating it out in the Gypsy Diskoteka til’ the road of excess has led us to the place of wisdom. Early evening come to feed your soul with wintery home-cookin in the Kitschen and take a rest from your fight for Revolutionary Determinism for a few moments in the Kinodrom with new and classic shorts from Eastern Europe.

Radio Gagarins’ bi-monthly Experiments in Sunday Socialism sessions fill Notting Hill Arts Club to overflowing with a tundra melting mix of live music, digital DJ prowess, performance art, east European cinema, poetry, puppetry, poverty, latkes, blinis and vodka. Live acts have included Gogol Bordello's Eugene Hutz, Oi Va Voi, DJ Shantel, Sophie Solomon, Nayekovichi, Mukka, London Sevda, Martin Green & Joe Townsend, London Bulgarian Choir, Graham Lewis (Wire) with Scifi Kane, Luminescent Orchestrii, Geoff Berner, The Destroyers, Mammatrix, Emunah & Ghetto Plotz.
