Birmingham’s favourite street food destination, Digbeth Dining Club, is gearing up for an 11-hour takeover of discussions, live music and beats in aid of independent radio station, Brum Radio.
Taking place on Saturday 18th February at Spotlight and Mama Roux’s, the event is set to showcase some of Birmingham’s finest fledgling musical artists, creative industry minds and DJs, all programmed by newly formed events management company, Four Eyes Events.
The takeover kicks off at 17.00 in Spotlight, with Brum Radio residents supplying sounds from the station to accompany those enjoying their DDC food. Meanwhile in Mama Roux’s from 17:30, those in attendance will witness a live panel discussion hosted by Brum Radio’s own Danny de Reybekill. Opinions, predictions and experiences from radio industry guests will be shared, with Brummy Jossy Mitsu (Radar Radio), already confirmed.
As the event progresses into the early evening, three exciting up and coming Birmingham acts will perform exclusive sets in the New Orleans themed venue.
The aim of this event, as well as fundraising, is to encompass what Brum Radio is all about; giving Birmingham an alternative voice.” Four Eyes Events co-founder and event organiser, Holly Hollister, said “So being able to showcase newly formed fresh acts such as hip-hop infused jazz outfit Shōkunin, as well as neo-soul protégée Barbella, after thought provoking radio conversations, is something we’re proud to make happen.
Once everyone’s full of knowledge, food and energy, we’ll open a transformed Spotlight for further dance fuelled celebrations, where guests can party under the venue’s glistening disco ball until the early hours.
Gracing the decks will be more artists associated with Brum Radio; Before the Sol, Goosensei and Craig Charles favourite Sam Redmore, who, echoing his radio show, will play the midnight mix.
Emma Leeming, Four Eyes other co-founder added:
Be sure to get down if you’re interested in the progression of Internet radio, want to sample a taste of the station or are looking spice up your Saturday night! All money raised will be going to an important cause, enabling the continuation of an essential creative platform.
All proceeds of the evening will go towards funding Brum Radio. The panel discussion and live music in Mama Roux’s is free entry, with part two in Spotlight £5 entry from 22:00.
