The Fat Hat Collective: The Inexplicables + Binbag Wisdom + Posh Pete
October 1, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - October 2, 2016 @ 2:00 am£7 – £8
The Fat Collective is a group of incredible bands in the South-West joined together at the trunk to promote peace, love and music! They regularly treat us to a night of foot stompingly good artists & DJs – this month it’s The Inexplicables with Binbag Wisdom and Posh Pete on the decks.
Unique and unexpected live dance music from the roots of Bristol.
The Inexplicables defy explanation; their unique blend of live dance music bounds with energy and originality. Driven by beatbox and sumptuous vocals with tricky wordplay, raw bass and rich sax melodies: they take on you on a visceral journey through reggae, hiphop and roots to jungle, jazz and drum n’ bass.
Since exploding onto the UK festival circuit ‘Sunrise battle of The Bands’ winners The Inexplicables have played many of the UK’s major festivals such as Boomtown, Secret Garden Party, Beautiful Days, Eden, Beatherder, Nozstock and Sunrise, to rave reviews.
They’ve packed out some of the best known venues in the country, with headline slots allover London including the world famous Troubadour, Hootananny’s, Passing Clouds, and The Magic Garden.
They have toured internationally with dates in Leipzig and Chemnitz (Germany), Amsterdam, and Mandrea (Italy) alongside national tours headlining Beaverworks in Leeds, Komedia in Bath and The Pheonix in Exeter amongst many other major venues.
“It is dance music, but not as the mainstream media would recognise it, this is world and indeed worldly dance music, a sort of universal currency that could be exported anywhere on the globe and be recognised for just how encompassing it is, not to mention brilliant.” — Dave Franklin, theswindonian.co.uk
“The highlight of the weekend however, was Bristol-based outfit The Inexplicables. Resting on a backbone of mean beat-boxing talent, this dance-inducing, smile-enhancing 6-piece (not counting their ‘Raving Raven’ mascot on a stick, namesake to one of the funnest and funniest festival tunes we’ve heard) absolutely stole our hearts” — The Vintage Scribbler – (Beatherder Festival)
Posh Pete spins a mixture of reggae, jungle and Dn’B in clubs across the UK. He has supported some of the biggest names in the scene and hosts a weekly radio show on Distinct FM every Sunday evening. He is also a proud member of the Positive Vibrations crew!
The venue is open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-10pm
