Disillusioned by dating mishaps and social awkwardness, Annabel is convinced that the only way for her to be united with her object of desire, is to approach Sebastian online. Empowered and armed with Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, will Annabel ever get her man?*

RBMA Presents Louche & Jaunt with Julio Bashmore, Shonky, Midland, Braiden & Jane Fitz @ Plan B / Saturday 28th January 2012


Doors: 10pm – 6am

@ Plan B
418 Brixton Road
London, SW9 7AY

Entry: £16.80 Here


Nothing better than a proper good old fashioned January shakedown to keep one warm in winter! Still buzzing from the success of their last sellout event in November with Omar S, the Louche/Jaunt partnership will return this January, for the first in a four part series of Red Bull Music Academy events at Plan B.

Julio Bashmore had a big year in 2011 and he seems to be on a path to even bigger things in 2012. So if you haven’t heard about him by now, you must have had your head stuck hard down a toilet… But even then you would have probably been able to hear the signature Bashmore tunes rattling your skull against the U-Bend! With one of the most seminal releases of the year, crossover anthem “Battle For Middle You” earned the Bristolian almost instant global recognition. Expect jaw dropping bass and serious house dubs as Bashmore brings his signature Bristol modulations to south London.

Tickets: RBMA’s previous London events have sold out in advance so don’t snooze on tickets!

Julio Bashmore (Futureboogie)
Shonky (Apollonia)
Midland (Aus)
Braiden (Doldrums)
Jane Fitz (Peg, Mixx Records)
