It’s press release time!


12th October 2001, 8 PM – 1 AM
The Betsey Trotwood, 56 Farringdon Road, London EC1
Nearest Tube: Farringdon
Entry £5

Following the horrifying events of the 11th September, London’s indie community has come together to organize LondonIndieUSA, a benefit night in aid of the victims of the terrorist attacks on America. All proceeds from this club night will go to the International Red Cross.

London’s indie scene has enjoyed strong long-term links with America, with bands crossing the Atlantic in both directions, and fans finding common ground online. Every indie fan in London has friends who have been seriously affected by the recent attacks. This benefit is an attempt to reach out and offer support.

LondonIndieUSA will take place on the 12th October at the Betsey Trotwood pub over two floors. More than a dozen DJs, representing several of London’s regular indie nights, will be taking part. They’ll be playing everything from full-on pop to experimental eclectica, with the emphasis on dancing and fun. Records, memorabilia and booze will be raffled for charity during the evening. Oh, and the Betsey Trotwood is fully licensed until 1 AM!

This is a unique event, a chance for London’s indie scene to show how much the friendship and community Americans have shown us means. The fact that it’s going to be the best indie night out this year is, as they say, a bonus.

Doors open at 8PM and entry is £5.
