Beatnik runs regular nights at Apartment 58 (Tottenham Crt Rd), The Macbeth (Hoxton), The Old Queens Head (Angel), and The Finsbury (Manor House), variously featuring:
- a free rooftop BBQ
- short films
- finger puppet-making
- vintage DJ-ing
- fine acoustic music from major labels and local artists
Alternative Folk, Blue Grass, a touch of Country, Anti-Folk, occasionally Americana, certainly acoustic; check the Events tab for featured artists.
Beatnik embraces a D.I.Y culture and welcoming attitude; the ethos is simply to provide our artists and audience with the best possible environment to enjoy themselves.
If you like Simon and Garfunkel; if you’ve heard of John Martyn; if you’ve found yourself tapping your foot to Mumford and Sons or Fleet Foxes, the dimness departing to the sound of Bright Eyes or your smile spreading when a Nick Drake record comes on, then this is for you.
Now bring on the music!
