Dickon Edwards is a London-based writer, flâneur, songwriter, musician, dysfunctional dandy and DJ who wowed the dancefloor at the last White Mischief and will be returning to get our partygoers on their feet on Saturday June 7.
Since 1997 Dickon has kept a celebrated Internet Diary, making it one of the UK’s longest running ‘blogs’. This dubious qualification means he now appears on TV documentaries about blogging, like BBC1′s ‘Imagine’. One side-effect of Being Dickon Edwards is DJ-ing at stylish club nights like The Beautiful & Damned, which Time Out called ‘unmissable’. He’s also played to a huge tent of happy dancing people at the 2007 Latitude Festival.Continue Reading
Dusty Limits has been called “the best MC on the Edinburgh festival fringe”, has hosted nights including his own noted show Kabarett, and has been feted by American magazine Newsweek. Plus he’s been an acerbic compere at the past two White Mischief shows and is returning to host an evening of song and sarcasm at our second stage on Saturday 7, June, 2008.Continue Reading
At the last White Mischief in November a gaggle of brilliant, fleet-footed swing dancers took to the floor accompanied by the jazz tunes of The Shellac Sisters. This time we are delighted to have Theodora, one of the founding members of the Shellacs, together with her husband Sheriff Marshal Lawman who is co-founder of the highly regarded country night Nashville-on-Thames. Together they are responsible for the successful Brat Pack-inspired club Prom Night. Click for a peek into the many diverse genres that the pair will be playing at the forthcoming White Mischief.Continue Reading
Spinning “The Rock and Roll of the World”, Scratchy – tour DJ for Gogol Bordello and The Clash as well as being resident DJ at Gypsy Hotel – will be DJing in the main stage room at White Mischief on Saturday June 7.
Scratchy was the tour DJ with the Clash from 1978-80. Prior to that, he’d been resident DJ at the famed Dingwalls Dancehall in Camden Town, London. During those heady days, he spun at all the major concert venues in the city, including the Roundhouse, the Rainbow, the Electric Ballroom, Hammersmith Odeon and the Lyceum, alongside the likes of the Ramones, the Cramps, Blondie, Black Uhuru and Iggy Pop, as well as touring the UK twice with Dr. Feelgood.Continue Reading
White Mischief regulars will know that our shows are full of unforgettable happenings around the venue as well as on the main stages. By way of a few spontaneous sets around the building, Ta Mère will share their inimitable gypsy jazz up close and personal.
So who are Ta Mère? Three guys-about-town, on the town, getting down and swinging hard. A creation by special request of the BBC for the 2007 Glasgow Film Festival, they’ve been catapulted from these auspicious beginnings onto the London scene.Continue Reading
DJing at the next White Mischief on Saturday June 7 are The Broken Hearts: Amber and Nisha, a DJ and performance duo who see every show as an opportunity to get dressed up.
Combining an eclectic DJ set with their extensive wardrobe of identical costumes and occasional choreographed routines, the girls provide a spectacular experience for the eyes and ears. Drawing from the iconography of Weimar Berlin, circus sideshows and the Golden Age of Hollywood their show is a technicolour extravaganza that takes the DJ out from behind the decks and into the limelight.Continue Reading
Bringing some glamour to the White Mischief second stage on June 7, Tricity Vogue presents her own charming blend of slink and sass – the music she likes to call “cheeky jazz”. Think Peggy Lee after a few too many cocktails.
A vintage songstress with her tongue firmly in her cheek, Tricity’s glamorous cabaret jazz act involves fabulous gowns, her very own horn section, and a small pink ukelele. Miss Vogue’s mischievously witty music harks back to a bygone era while at times sounding suspiciously contemporary.Continue Reading
