No One's Watching raises money for local migrant support charities

Win tickets, records and more with new fundraising series that kicks off with flies+flies and Harmergeddon

A new events series gets underway this weekend at The Cause in London. The fundraising event on 2 June will donate all of its door profits to local migrant support charities, while the North London venue itself supports mental health charities Mind, CALM and Help Musicians UK.

The night “joins up some of the threads that have made the UK’s underground so arresting in recent years,” says co-founder and Precious Snowflake Records boss Tamar Shlaim, “bringing together DJs, art and live performance, with a music policy at the intersection of decadent, mutant club music, weird electronics and experimental guitar-adjacent melodics.” The line-up includes Forward Strategy Group, flies+flies, Harmergeddon, and DJ sets from DEBONAIR and TTB. The event will also feature an installation by flies+flies' Jake Williams that explores the liminal possibilities of unsecured security cameras.

To celebrate the launch they're giving away a party pack of prizes, including a pair of tickets to the event, two Repeater books (Mad Skills: MIDI And Music Technology In The 20th Century by Ryan A Diduck and Under My Thumb edited by Rhian E Jones and Eli Davies), a flies+flies Bad Crab 10" plus T-shirt, and Harmergeddon’s Both Sides Of The Conversation EP. To win, simply send an email with the subject heading No One's Watching. The winner will be selected at 6pm on 1 June.

No One's Watching will take place on 2 June at 9pm. Tickets are available via Resident Advisor.
