Ain’t Misbehavin’ – The Finale/Xmas Special

Saturday 21st December 2019 – 9pm -2am

Ain’t Misbehavin’ has been running for 9 messy rag-tag years and after one drink too many has decided to take a break from the late night hedony!

Come on down for the last Ain’t Misbehavin’ at the Mascara Bar. One of the few remaining bastions against the blandification of London’s nightlife.

There’ll be all the usual musical delights from DJ’s Tequila Mockingbird and Howard Cox (Mr Jinx) – providing a madcap vintage soundtrack for dancing and delinquency.

Come for the atmosphere. Come for the boogie. Come to remind yourself that once bars had something other than craft lager and instagram followers: they had soul.

An Obscurity of Poets

Thursday 25th July 2019 – 7pm – 11pm

Poets are the “unacknowledged legislators of the world” according to Percy Byshee Shelley. But it’s not just as legislators, so much as in general that they’re unacknowledged.

Come along and enjoy the wit and wisdom of our fabulous feature acts, or share some words of your own on the open mic, with sign up from 19:00.

Features:

Joshua Seigal:

Joshua Seigal is a stand up poet for both children and adults , based in London. He is an official National Poetry Day Ambassador and has several books published by Bloomsbury. He has taken shows to places such as Edinburgh Festival, Cheltenham Literature Festival and the Dubai Literary Fesitval.

Sunday 21st July 2019 – 7pm – 10pm

Gaga Ladies and Fran Isherwood celebrate summer with special guests Yes Mess. Expect it to get messy! We also have poet Fiona Brehony..We start with an open mic session so you can be in it too!
Open mic sign-up from 7 pm, show 7.30 ish..Utterly free.entry, but do take advantage of the comprehensively stocked bar.

Fiona Brehony is a London based poet from Wythenshawe, Manchester, sharing observations from solitude in vacuous spaces of the Capital.

Formed by singer-song writer Danthedan, The Yes Mess will smother you with fanciful incantations that will let your inner animal out.
Joyful and damaged, the vocal combinations live to tell the tale, harmonising and winning. The solid guitar rhythm will welcome you on a journey through the streets of, ‘Illness and Danger’, the ‘Land of the Laughing’ and the afterlife of a ‘Caterpillar’. The snarl and passion, groove and nagging pop melody, will boot-through as the drums roll out the swings and blows, supported by tight, peachy bass beats, and lead guitar experimentations; cheeky, creepy and bewailing. The accordion waves nightmarish imaginations; swiftly U-turning between klezmer to Cuban,
