Phonica is 8! And to celebrate tomorrow they’re commandeering our favourite car park, Great Suffolk Street, with a lineup that defies belief; Heidi, Soul Clap, Matt Tolfrey, Joy Orbison, Waifs & Strays, Benoit & Sergio live, and not to forget the mighty Visionquest. Obviously we’ll be the ones down the front screaming like idiots. If that hasn’t broken you there’s an after-party at Cable until 1pm on Sunday hosted by Jaded.
If you want a little pre-Phonica-birthday warm up there’s loads going on tonight too – keep it car-park with Lola Showcase at Hearn Street, featuring Dan Ghenacia and Seuil, or pop South to Corsica Studios for 2020 Vision’s Crazy P album launch party, or head to Hidden in Vauxhall for Found: Launch with Justin Martin.
The sun is upon us at last, so perfect timing to head to Peckham tonight for the closing party of Bold Tendencies on the roof of the multiplex car park, with the obligatory Bussey Building after party, with Horse Meat Disco and the Off Modern crew.
Here are some tracks for the pod during those jaded early-morning walks home.
