The Converse and 100 Club curated music series kicked off in June last year when Graham Coxon headlined and played the first packed out show, since then the likes of Everything Everything, Little Roy and Gross Magic, Fanfarlo, The Rapture and Ghostpoet have taken to the stage. Cementing the success of this unique partnership, Converse and 100 Club continue to deliver an exciting line-up for fans, showcasing today’s best and freshest emerging artists. The partnership also gives 100 Club the opportunity to introduce a new generation to its renowned gigs, by once again bringing the best music to its legendary stage. 100 Club will continue to oversee the schedule of performances as it has for over 65 years, in addition to presenting this new free series alongside Converse

With a well-deserved place on the BBC Sound of 2012 list, Dot Rotten, previously known as Young Dot, has made a storming start to the new year with new single ‘Are You Not Entertained’ being named Zane Lowe’s ‘hottest record of the week’. Counting a diverse range of musical influences including Sting, Bob Marley and ‘Lil Wayne, the south Londoners sound is leading the UK’s grime scene and crossing over to mainstream and chart success. Already a hailed MC and producer (Tine Tempeh, Wiley, Ghetts) Dot Rotten now sits of the brink of big things in his own right. This is one show you will want to witness.

Manchester based artist Darren Williams, better known as Star Slinger and already touted by Guardian’s New Band of The Day as an act to keep your eye on, brings his unique sound to London for what is shaping up to be one hell of a line up. Best known for taking old R&B album cuts and spinning them into new songs. His debut album, Volume 1, sees snippets of Prefab Sprout and Musical Youth take centre stage. In addition, Star Slinger played hip hop and dance orientated sets on the festival circuit last year and is now working on a follow up album: Volume 2.
