The BGC All-Nighter
Join the region's oldest and only strictly vinyl collective, the Beirut Groove Collective, for the legendary BGC All-Nighter, back this week at our weekly home at KED. The equation's simple: soul-fuelled selections on 45, our tropical dancefloor and you – that's the making of a dance party extraordinaire. The Beirut Groove Collective DJ crew – Jackson Allers, Ernesto Chahoud and Natalie Shooter – will be filling the warehouse with soulful cuts in everything from '60s Garage and Deep Funk to Rhythm and Blues, 1970s Ethio Stompers, Psych, as well as a healthy serving of the Arab World's bellydance, tarab, Armenian org-stompers and little known beat and '60s garage rarities, all spun on 45.
