~ WDC xx
Yes Bristol, it’s that time again...it’s our BIRTHDAY and we turn SEVEN years old!!
After the last 18 months, finally, for you the wrigglers of all shapes & sizes, of various origins, ages & weird n’ wonderful ways, we can bring you a proper Worm Disco Club party!
UPDATE - UNFORTUNATELY ZAKIA HAS HAD TO PULL OUT BUT STEPPING IN WE CAN PRESENT...
Rebecca stands out as one of the most enthusiastic and quality selectors currently doing it in the UK. Based outta Glasgow, known for playing quality Jazz cuts she will be warming up the room prior to the band with tunes to make your hips sway and to set the tone for the rest of the night.
She was hand picked by the man Gilles Peterson to close the main stage at his Worldwide Festival in 2019 and has gone from strength to strength since, with this year seeing her debut recorded project 'With Love, From Glasgow' getting high praise and featuring many of the amazing up and coming players from the Glasgow scene.
We had Rebecca booked to play at this very venue in March 2020 but we all know what happened since, so we are chuffed to be able to call on her to step in and step up for this special event!
UPDATE: UNFORTUNATELY DUE A COMBINATION OF VACCINATION STATUS/UK BORDER RULES, WE CAN NO LONGER BRING COCO AND PALO ALONG FOR THE PARTY....
As disappointed as we were (several names to replace on one night is unprecedented for us), the party must go on so stepping in, we have two guys who head up one of the most important and relevant labels for Brazilian music that exist... repping the legendary FAR OUT RECORDINGS - Josh Tautz & Koralek (Jake W).
This pair have been key to FAR OUT'S recent success and the legendary label's continued strides into modernity - not something many labels manage to do while still releasing incredibly fresh and exciting music.
We can't wait to see what selections they bring on the night!
AWALE JANT BAND: 7 piece London meets Paris meets Senegalese Afro-Soul and Jazz.
Our special guest headline band for the occassion, lead by Thibaut Remy (guitar), the Awale Jant Band are a unique melange of styles and rhythms that could only come out of modern London.
Sabar fuelled Afro-Jazz with seriously funky horn lines, percussive rhythms to keep you on your toes, Latin flourishes and the soulful Senegalese vocals of the wonderful Biram Seck , we love their style and uplifting sound. Definitely go and check out their album ‘Yewoulen’ which translates as ‘Wake Up!’ In Wolof, which was to be released right at the moment the pandemic swept through Europe last year. The album slipped under the radar due to the circumstances last March but was genuinely one of our most enjoyed listens of 2020.
‘’A truly magical and uplifting cross-cultural collaboration, bringing together Afro-latin, Funk and Soul elements with a Senegalese twist’’. - Tim Garcia (Jazz FM)
WORM SOUNDSYSTEM: The three worms go back to back to round off their birthday party!
Closing out the night, all three Worms Jackson, Jake and Nathan with their signature blend of Jazz, Brazilian, Caribbean and Latin grooves! Expect ridiculous tunes for ridiculous times and late night crazy dance moves fuelled by Tequila and unbridled joy.

We are requesting that people wear masks when at the bar and when entering or exiting the building.
There's a multitude of hand sanitiser points around the venue - please use them!
Do kindly dispose of cups in provided bins (the single use plastic cups are in place for hygiene reasons BUT these are not our call - we dislike single use throw away plastic waste and would prefer paper cups but lets face it this isn't perfect either!) ...
As always we want our people to be comfortable and free to be themselves at our parties regardless of age, gender, sexuality, racial or national identity or any other way people define themselves! Come ready for a good time and leave any preconceptions or bad attitude at home and don’t be a dick and don't be a creep!
