Performing live out of an actual shed has become a celebrated Saturday night out at the Westbury. The Disco Shed presents shedliners, Barry Ashworth and co with a Dub Pistols DJ set. With recent collaborations with the Specials’ Terry Hall, reggae legend Horace Andy and British Hip Hop crusader, Rodney P expect a set built on tough breakbeats, but equally immersed in hip-hop, ska, reggae, punk and soul. Count Skylarkin’ backsup the mashups alongside the shed’s resident Arthur Fowler, DJ BarryDark and Head of Shed, Peepshow Paddy.
This is the Disco Shed’s flagship party as it hurtles towards its natural home of summer festivaldom, and will be transforming the concept of what a DJ booth can, and in the name of fun, should be. Hanging baskets, disco balls, Bridget Fonda workout videos and Des O’Connor album covers are all scheduled to appear.
The mobile disco shed is best known for kitschly pummelling festivals with its party soundsystem, from the bigger (Reading) to the middler (Big Chill) to the tiddler (Latitude). The shed’s collection of gnomes are blooming excited about coming to London. They’ve never met the queen before, you see.
