Foxfirkin Lewisham presents:
Rum Shack X Fox Fest: Kwake Bass / More Like Trees / The Fedz + Special Guests!
Entry Requirements: Over 18s only. Photo ID required.
This special night is a rare London show from Rum Shack in association with Fox Fest to raise money for Refugee Community Kitchen (founded by The Common's very own Steve Bedlam) and ForJimmy.org.
More Like Trees are born of festival fields and raucous warehouse parties, radiating individuality from every facet. Theirs is a sound like no other: foot-stomping, heart-pounding, and infectious. This is an altermodern melting pot of styles reimagined as acoustic dance music. A meeting of drum n bass and folk with knowing nods towards flamenco and gypsy influences that they call 'Strum n Bass'.
Kwake Bass is regarded as one of the most established drummers in London. He's played in many contexts, ranging from musical director to one-man-band, for acts as varied as Jehst, Kate Tempest, Shabaka Hutchings and Karl R.Able. His new mixtape is the first instalment in a series of compilations of his solo work past and present.
The Fedz are a UK/US music collective from all races and backgrounds, working together for the common good. An anathema to the divisions in the world, sticking up a middle finger to the status quo.
