THE BEGINNING AND END OF BRITPOP AS WE KNOW IT. ENTER THE NIGHTCLUB AND TASTE THE CONFETTI. WELCOME TO POP CITY.
The collective cut their teeth producing and performing live, along with associated act Sophie, in London at the JACK댄스 club nights and has since signing to Columbia Records. The ‘Pop City’ event carries on from earlier similarly-themed group events, including a special night at last year’s SXSWand the recent ‘Pop Cosmos‘ at the Scala in London in May.
Together, woman-run events organisation Creamcake and interdisciplinary cultural agency Niche Berlin, along with online platform concerned with “female spatial practitioners”, Making Spaces, come together to present “new perspectives, freeing up space and presenting their discoveries in Berlin.”
London-based music label and collective PC Music is doing a showcase, called Pop Cosmos at London’s Scala on May 19.
The acts set to perform on the night include Danny L Harle, Hannah Diamond, GFOTY, Felicita, Easyfun, Spinee, and A. G. Cook, the latter of whom founded the PC Music label online around 2013, since partnering with Columbia Records. Cook has also worked with other artists of a similar focus on feminine-future aesthetics, like Sophie, together producing and developing music project and energy drink QT with performance artist Hayden Dunham(aka ‘Quinn Thomas’), as well as producing as duo called Lipgloss Twins with Felicita.
The Pop Cosmos press release comes accompanied by a short trailer video by SCOTTY2HOTTY69 and the following new-futurist affirmation:
“Lose yourself in an immersive journey to the end of time. See the stars up close. Buy your one way ticket to the Pop Cosmos.”
Anja Weigl and Daniela Seitz, organisers of Creamcake curated the music festival 3hd Festival early last month. For the event held in Berlin that merged pop culture with underground local and global scenes they also arranged discussions around topics and questions like: ‘What is the Musical Object in the 21st Century?’, and ‘Visual Pleasure, the Impact of Image Making’.
The Eternal party has been happening more-or-less monthly at the private members’ club (and its 24-hour alcohol license), open every weekend for the last 27 years and handed down from father to son through the years.
It has since opened up its doors for Eternal, where the rotation of DJs will set the tone for what might very well be the last ever Eternal night at People’s Club.
