Our House + Bamboo - Christmas Knees Up (Free) at The Birdcage
Dec
22
to Dec 23

Our House + Bamboo - Christmas Knees Up (Free) at The Birdcage

We have teamed up with our good friends Bamboo to throw a jolly good knees up in our favourite city centre boozer, The Birdcage. We're going to plug in the rotary mixer, turn the volume up and play hours of our favourite vinyls.

Bamboo will enviably bring their summer long international vibes to the party keeping the disco thermometer levels high.

It's going to be a good old fashioned Christmas booze up! Plus it's FREE entry all night long. However we're expecting The Birdy to be at capacity from early as it is the busiest night of the year!

Let's give you a little taster about who we have playing on the night:

💋Nick Snell

Will be warming up the evening with a sultry selection of his favourite records. If you have every stepped foot into Sevenwolves you'll have noticed the smooth soundtrack that is playing in the background, that is Nick's capable handy work.

✂️Conor O'Brien

Conor is a huge fan of late 80s and early nighties house classics. Always digging for those feel good euphoric tracks that keep the dancefloor moving. Flint is a really good example of Conor's keen ear for a good tune as the ambience in the salon is always spot on!

🕯️Simon Sheldrake

I don't know many other people who can find such gems in such obscure places and at such a good price! Come and have a listen to what is in Simon's box of 45's. Expect a journey through rnb, soul, funk, disco and a lot more.

🌀Typo

Having recently smashed his support set for Boddika at Bermuda Bob's. Typo has a real taste for all things techno, garage and the odd jungle classic to bring that right energy to the dancefloor. Who knows what direction his set will take, what we do know though is that it'll keep everyone moving!

♥️Paul Flack

We love Paul, he is the man who's responsible for making all of our posters look so great! But it doesn't stop there he's also good a bloody good ear for a tune and plays some of the most fun and eclectic sets!

🌇Levi Fruits

One half of Our House and one half of Tropico Levi sure knows how to throw a party. We hear that Levi has been busy spending all of his spare cash on discogs and juno especially for this event. You can expect to hear lots of disco edits and the odd deep house roller.

💮Range

Coming of the back of one of his best sets to date at the last Our House event we're hype to hear what Rikki has packed in his bag! We hear there's going to be a ton of afro, techno and disco edits!

The Rabbitts Live in Norwich! W/Billy Lubach
Dec

7:00 PM19:00

The Rabbitts Live in Norwich! W/Billy Lubach

Title:  The Rabbitts Live in Norwich! W/Billy Lubach

The Rabbitts are a British folk duo composed of Odhran and Lucy, their music is gentle, fun and riddled with natural imagery. As a couple the pair draw inspiration from their relationship, as well as old folk music and the new places they travel. The duo have just finished touring and travelling around Canada in a van that they lived in for over a year. They recently returned to the UK. Their latest album release 'Tall Pines & Tangled Vines' has received support from Norwich's own Future Radio and BBC Introducing as well as other online blogs and playlists.

"There’s nothing quite like a good “weird” folk record to subvert the nonsensical folk hybrids – this one is both hip and traditionally strange."- Jake Tully, Moxipop

"The Rabbitts embrace a minimalist beauty, exemplifying their knack for a gorgeous vocal delivery and their myriad of instrumental techniques." - Jonathan Frahm, For Folk's Sake

"Tall Pines & Tangled Vines is a playful LP with moody undertones that flood you with picturesque lyrics." - Aupium

Billy Lubach will be opening the show!

Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Billy Lubach sings wistful and nostalgic songs with a distinctive voice and style. The Norwich based musician takes fragments of childhood memories and weaves them into surreal but universally relatable narratives. His idiosyncratic approach to songwriting creates beautiful, uplifting melodies.

Doors open 7pm/ show starts 7:30pm

Price: £4otd

Tom Adams / Alexander Carson / Freya Roy

Tom Adams / Alexander Carson / Freya Roy

Composer / electronic musician Tom Adams grew up near Cambridge, the flattest part of the UK. Despite this, or perhaps because of this, Tom’s heart has found a home in the wild and mountainous places of this earth. This love of nature is an ever present voice in his work, lending a widescreen quality to his music, from intimate piano moments to mountainous waves of sound.

He started playing the piano at a young age, and soon discovered that improvising and creating new music came a lot more naturally than reading dots on a page. This discovery blossomed when he bought his first guitar as a teenager and Tom soon started to write his own songs, his haunting voice has drawn comparisons to singers like Thom Yorke and Jeff Buckley. Going on to study music at the University of York he had the opportunity to work with both classical and electronic music, the combination of which has become the defining aspect of his sound.

Combining his natural ability to improvise with his classical training and electronic music knowledge Tom is able to move seamlessly between styles whilst always maintaining a strong overall aesthetic. The result is a breathtaking and beautiful musical experience that is a perfect soundtrack to mountains and wild beaches.

Tom recently remixed Max Richter’s ‘Berlin By Overnight’, released by Deutsche Grammophon, and also composed the OST for the Universal Pictures feature film ‘The Knife That Killed Me’. His self-released EP ‘In The Constant Noise’ is out now.
