Offline at the Brixton Prince Albert, 14th November 2008
A packed night of fantastic mayhem with Filthy Pedro featuring Las Actionistas and an opera singer (!), plus Yodelling Al and a stellar cast of DJs.
We'd had a lot of press for this one, with The Guardian running a two page spread on the The Actionettes/Las Actionistas and Time Out publishing a picture, so it was annoying that the reggae band cancelled at very short notice. Happily, Yodelling Al stepped in at the last minute. Cheers Al!
Las Actionistas get in the mood in the dressing room.

The worst bit of the night. It takes ages to untangle this fearsome - even longer if their ridiculously cute pub kitten gets involved!

Map and venue info
We're going to be mixing it up with the raw anti-folk anarchic punk of FILTHY PEDRO featuring the Mexican wrestling mask-wearing, all-girl go-go troupe LAS ACTIONISTAS and a host of DJs keeping the punk rock, ska, reggae, dub and dance sounds pumping all night in the heart of Brixton. And it's all for FREE!
FILTHY PEDRO feat. LAS ACTIONISTAS
The dirtiest lo-fi-DIY-punk-folk artist and pioneers of the UK anti-folk scene, Filthy's anarchic stage shows and tales of Lancaster Bombers, kinky tales of antiquity and being booted out of Angelsey make this a must-see gig.
"Early Happy Mondays meets The Fall meets the Pistols in a drunken folk club. This noisy bunch of anti-folk loons will have you grinning from ear to ear with sheer anarchic delight" HotGigsUK
"A raucous, indeed filthy, songwriter whose tracks fit somewhere between Jeffrey Lewis's mordant wordplay and the beat-up folk of Will Oldham's Palace Brothers" Metro Newspaper
"Author of couplet of the decade: Drinking Jack Daniel's in the bathtub/Making a pact with Beelzebub" Lauren Laverne
"Thoroughly excellent (and a bit odd)" NME
*EXCLUSIVE!* For this gig only Filthy Pedro will be joined by the LAS ACTIONISTAS, a renegade go-go gang from THE ACTIONETTES.
