DON’T DIE WONDERING AND BEACH CREEP PRESENT (AKA DDW LIVE CLUB NIGHT #11 AKA THE RETURNAL AKA THE RELOADED)
After an extended hiatus, the Don’t Die Wondering live club nights are making a return in reincarnated form at the newly refurbished Shackelwell Arms in Dalston. The nights will pick up where the last ones left off, with live performances and DJ sets from our favorite up-and-coming artists.

SHACKLEWELL ARMS, DALSTON, E8 2EB
Grecian duo Keep Shelly In Athens made a brilliant introduction early this year with singles Running Out Of You and Hauntin’ Me among others, coupled with their now sold out releases on Transparent and Forest Family. This will be their second UK show and a good opportunity to catch their AM-tinged, punchdrunk melancholy bedroom disco in action.
We recently came across London duo Paradise and our ears instantly perked to their brooding, passionate chants of vampiric youth. Space and reserve play as much a part in these songs as the spirited melodies that front them, hinting at something quite grand that is just beyond reach. Ones to watch, as it goes.
Our affinity for London via Atlanta dance reconfigurer C Powers, who will be playing some tracks on the night, is well documented. His latest offering is Labour, available as a free download or upcoming CDR from UUU Tapes, a collated set of tracks from the past year that exhibit his ever evolving technique and production style in a tightly knit package.
Also expect DJ sets from friends Double Denim Records, Beach Creep and ourselves (hi mom!).
