Our Bar Shorts night was a tremendous success apart from Dave locking Lisa’s camera in hotel safe and forgetting the combination. Not deterred, we took some rubbish photos of classy people enjoying the Best of British line-up. Lots of people came including Rockstar Games rocker Steve Bliss and artist Jon Burgerman.
(We had to stop taking photos at this point because Soho House don’t allow that sort of thing. Just as well eh?)
Highlights of the evening were Joey Pantoliano in Dog Judo on home turf. Tom Jennings' DJ Yoda video for ‘U No Likey Like That’ - played at end - caused the crowd to go wild. New York has been embracing David Shrigley for a while noe so you can imagine how well Everything went down.
On Monday 11 June there’s more than just films and drinks at Bar Shorts. There’s football.
England v France will be screened before the event at 5pm. Entrance is free plus the bar is offering 4 Tiger or Sol beers for £10 during the game. And there’s food from Big Apple Hot Dogs. Of course animators and footballers are not always natural bed fellows.
Bar Shorts opens as normal at 7pm with films starting around 7.30pm. There’s new Bob films from Darren Walsh, Headless Drummer by David Shrigley, Intermission by Robert Popper & Peter Serafinowicz, Happy Clapper by Tom Marshall and a whole lot more. Plus the first chance to see Grace Petrie’s Rise directed by our very own Chris Shepherd & Rod Main. Grace Petrie will then perform a live acoustic set.
All this for free. Wow. Hope to see you there at XOYO, 32-37 Cowper Street, London EC2A 4AP.
