It’s the last Tuesday of the month which means we’ll be returning to the Bongo with our Drum and Bass All Nighter!!
Headlining this month are Edinburgh DnB duo Bag O’ Cans. Don’t be fooled by the moniker as Anikonik X Oh My Josh are no strangers to the scene having run parties up and down Scotland for a number of years! Upstairs, we’ve invited Edinburgh party squad and record label Skoop to host Room 2 w/ Cleaverhype and MC One Tzu. These guys have been absolute fire this year, check them out! DRINKS DEALS: £1 shots, £2 spirit mixers
£2.50 Red Stripe (500ml can). FACEBOOK
Original UK post-punk legend John Wardle, aka Jah Wobble (ex-PiL), will be among the most unique acts ever to have graced the Bongo’s stage. He has worked with a diverse huge array of musicians (and music genres), including Brian Eno, Bjork, Massive Attack, Primal Scream, Julie Campbell (aka LoneLady), Baaba Maal, Shara Nelson, Can’s Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit, Pharoah Sanders, Bill Laswell, Sinead O’Connor, David Holmes, Francois Kevorkian, The Orb, Andrew Weatherall, Adrian Sherwood, The Shamen, Bernie Worrell, Suggs and The Edge (among myriad others). Support from excellent multi-instrumentalist (drums / percussion / trombone) & composer Tim Lane‘s brand new project LANES. And the hugely respected ALEX FIENNES will be sound engineering the gig. Jah Wobble will play a TWO-HOUR SET. Oh yes! ‘I honestly can’t remember the last time I played Edinburgh! I know we did New Year 1998 near the castle. Deffo not done it for years that’s for sure. Only major city in UK I can say that about’ (Jah Wobble) As you can see, we’re rather excited about this one. Don’t sleep!
Hotline is back, following its recent First Birthday, collaborating with an all girl ECA collective to have art and visuals within the club night. All girl / non-binary DJs (line-up TBC). LGBTQ+ friendly. Expect everything from disco to dance and donk…. FACEBOOK
It’s a break-out, one-off session for Sound System Legacies (which now happens upstairs at Messenger Sound System every month), exploring the finest sounds in Jungle, Dubstep, Garage, DnB and Dub, as they celebrate the legacy of reggae music and sound system culture on today’s club sounds, and all via the FULL Messenger Soundsystem. UK dons Om Unit & Groove Chronicles headline this special, with an old school Jungle session! Last time he played the Bongo (supporting Aphrodite for Electrikal, back in 2014), Om Unit delivered a top notch selection, so expect nothing less than the best, while Groove Chronicles (aka original UK Garage legend Noodles) has played the Bongo so many times lately, he’s practically a resident! Proc Fiskal & Skillis support.
