If you don’t own a copy of The Look by Paul Gorman, you really should. It’s just about the best book around on the modern history of fashion, from the 1950s to the present day. And the reasoning behind that is soon to be turned into a monthly club night in London.
The Look at Lost Society kicks off on Thursday June 7th and then the first Thursday of every month. The music policy is down as eclectic – that means the best of all genres and all eras from DJs Pippa Brooks & Max Karie and Paul Gorman, with the first night also throwing in performances by All About Eve Babitz & My Lady Jane, plus a special guest in the form of Dexys’ legend Kevin Rowland, who will be "singing, DJing and raising the roof". That means he might sing the odd intro – this isn’t a gig for the man!
Admission is just £5 and it runs from 8pm until late.
