Come to London‟s Costa del Thames... for the weekend Thursday in Lewishambles SE13, Friday & Saturday in Deptford Fun City SE8 – from electro disco punks and anti folk to reggae legends and street theatre via outdoor art, markets, magic and an old sailor‟s town... The boroughs that are completely round the bend (of the River Thames) are a blueprint for a possible alternative future via art power, hippy idealism, fusion, pedestrianised living, green spaces and lateral thinking. So Blend It Like Peckham and keep an eye and ear on the City‟s South East postcodes.

TOY TOY : "Thrillingly filthy electro poppers" (Time Out). Aptly described by Londonist as “female fronted party starters out to flick two fingers up at granny-faced “indie” boys via a Grace Jones look-a-like with the voice of Siouxsie Sioux singing the lyrics of Mike Skinner”. Favourites of the local antiscene and deservedly essential on the festivals/alternative club circuit. The forthcoming single, The Me Song. It’s already an underground live classic as is this venue, literally! Friday 2nd October it’s the Deptford X Festival Party;
Artful presents THE DEPTFORD X FACTOR 10pm-3am at The Bunker 46 Deptford Broadway, Rocklands, London SE8 4PH Entry £4 – NUS/Depford X /Artful £2. 18+ venue – if you need id, do bring it!

Party the night away on Broadway with visual delights on stage, on walls, on dance floor with live entertainment from the amazing Toy Toy and the electronically charged Motel Blitz with some intergalactic DJ sets from JeanGenie (Panda-Power Parties, Rocklands) and Paedophile Stepdad. Visuals courtesy of The Blue Light District including Matt Sargent & Chris Getliffe. Night out.
THE BUNKER : Where South East London comes to after-show party until the dawn chorus - one of the city’s real treasures.

Alison Ward brings together traditional English street theatre and contemporary performance art with The Beastly Beauty, a farcical battle between two characters that embody different elements of beauty and the grotesque. Combining elements of Baroque theatre, slapstick comedy and professional wrestling to produce the effect of a live action Punch and Judy show, The Beastly Beauty will perform the tensions that arise in a community in flux by inducing a joyful catharsis. Curated by Jenny Doussan. The Beastly Beauty is supported by Lewisham Council and is a part of Deptford X and Artful.
Then walk through the traditional East End Market (eat your heart out Walford, we got a horse and cart!) to the Al Fresco bar a.k.a. as The Anchor at the top of the High Street. Across the road is The Deptford Marbles / Tanners Hill (for The Music Complex / Deptford Deli). You wonâ€&#x;t have seen a Tea Dance like the one thatâ€&#x;ll take place at 3pm!

350 - the most important number in the world
Two years ago, after leading climatologists observed rapid ice melt in the Arctic and other frightening signs of climate change, they issued a series of studies showing that the planet faced both human and natural disaster if atmospheric concentrations of CO2 remained above 350 parts per million.

Eco-friendly Musicians Combine Music With Activism. Eco-Lectric Tour artists recently spread the message of sustainability in New York as part of CMJ‟s annual Music Marathon and 350.org‟s International Day of Climate Action on Saturday, October 24th. Rock „n Renew, a non-profit organization that helps musicians, students, and communities live and act in sustainable ways. Jonny Dubowsky, excited about combining his two passions, performing and educating audiences about climate change, explains; “Rock „n Renew‟s mission is
to educate communities about the damage that we are doing to our environment and recommend small changes to improve our world. Our appearance at CMJ is just the first in a series of collaborations that we are working on as we prepare for the first Eco-Lectric Tour (Spring 2010). He will moderate a CMJ panel on “The Greening of the Music Industry” on October 22nd, 11 am to 12:15 pm at NYU‟s Kimmel Center. The panel will include representatives from Reverb, a non-profit organization founded by Guster guitarist/vocalist Adam Gardner that educates and engages musicians and their fans to take action toward a more sustainable future. Also on the panel is noted author/activist for climate change, Bill McKibben, co-founder of 350.org, an international campaign dedicated to building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis and chief coordinator for the International Day of Climate Action. It‟s an introduction to climate awareness that starts the dialogue for personal and community change, and encourages participation in 350.org‟s International Day of Climate Action on October 24th. It‟s on the Planet Water wavelength and, Music Tourist Board will be teaming up with Rock N Renew this winter. More on that in the near future. Unless you want to come on board now?

Incidentally, New York Times was already on the case, checking out South East London in Spring. Some elements of the UK press were appalled that such a working/non-working class stronghold should be seen in a positive light, they were hilarious in their reportage. The best article on London‟s SE14/8 is by Tristan Scutt of NX Boutique in the Summer 009 issue of the local Art Beat Whats On Gravity Guide http://issuu.com/gravityguide And as far as some other great ambassadors of SE14/8 go, search for “LET LOVE SHINE by SE14/8” on YouTube
