Weak Reception DJ nights at Knights Park Bar, Kingston University ran for four years until we realised that we were too old to get away with prentending to be students! We have aso been resident DJs at the new-band-tastic 'Up' nights at The Watershed in Wimbledon. Now we are mainly invoved with various nights at Bacchus in Kingston. We have played one-off events at numerous venues including The Foundry in Shoreditch, The Queen Boadicea in Clerkenwell and even The Works in Kingston!!
We are always on the look out for new places to DJ in the London area so if you're a venue or promoter and are interested, why not drop us a line.
We are currently booking post-rock / post-hardcore / experimental / electro bands for a new club night in London (venue TBA).
In the past we have put on gigs at The Peel in Kingston and back at our old stomping ground at Kingston Uni.
Get in touch if you're a band looking for gigs and you think we'll like you. We have so many crappy bands contacting us so before you put finger to keyboard please check out the sort of bands we work with, that should give you some idea of what we like.
PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE NOT, AND NEVER WILL BE, BOOKING METAL / HARDCORE / SCREAMO BANDS!!
