THE TIME IS NOW
DATE: SEPTEMBER 14
TIMING: 18:00 – 24:00
Bands, poets and artists come together at Nambucca in North London on September 14th for a night of entertainment in support of beleaguered Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
The Time Is Now event will feature sets from Dingus Khan, CuT, Bless, Max Bianco (The Jar Family), Reptiles and Purple Lights. Presented under the banner of Future London Underground, a coalition of musicians, poets and artists hoping to raise awareness of the issues surrounding the election of a new Labour party leader, it’s been organized by Dan and Gabi from the band CuT who want to highlight their support towards Jeremy Corbyn as “the only true alternative to an elitist and corrupt government.”
The night begins with poetry and performance from the likes of Freewheeling Troubadour, known for the ‘Fun Powder Plot’, Vis the Spoon and Burgess the Rhymer, who brings a uniquely fast-paced, often serious content to his rhymes.
Daniel Junsei, who has recently been exhibiting at the V&A, will be showcasing a new collection of CND-inspired paintings created exclusively for The Time is Now, and there’ll also be political speakers including a guest from the Corbyn-aligned pressure group Momentum.
Designed to get blood pumping and pulses racing on current issues as the cerebral delights of poetry and impressionist art collide with the visceral vitality of pure rock ‘n’ roll, The Time is Now kicks back against the negative media portrayals and political treachery with a show of strength, imagination and anarchic inspiration in his own constituency of Islington North.
