The Wire takeover at Bleep X

This January we'll be hosting a selection of events at the Dalston record shop. Featuring Steven Rutter, Shabaka Hutchings, The Rolling Calf trio, Nkisi and others

Starting on 12 January, The Wire will run a weeklong series of special events at the new pop-up store Bleep X. Located in East London, the store opened its doors back in November 2018 and has since hosted a selection of late night gigs, DJ sets and merch specials with the likes of Chris Carter, Apron Records, Aphex Twin, and Brainfeeder.

For The Wire takeover, Steven Rutter of B12 will be talking to Derek Walmlsey and performing live in store on 12 January from 6pm, and a Q&A with Shabaka Hutchings will happen on 13 January at 1pm. Following that, between 15 and 18 January The Wire will be in store between 6-9pm for the following events: an Invisible Jukebox with Mike Paradinas and Lara Rix-Martin of Planet Mu and Objects Limited respectively, hosted by Joseph Stannard (15), Keith Moliné discusses Autechre's remix work (16), The Rolling Calf trio featuring Elaine Mitchener, Jason Yarde & Neil Charles will perform live (17), and Meg Woof hosts a talk with Nkisi (18).
