We Break Strings launch

12 May 2017, Stone Nest

Set in an atmospheric abandoned chapel with drinks and music, this fundraiser was be a chance to spend an evening with Filthy Lucre’s varied band of supporters and artists. Ensemble x.y and VANA presented their music, alongside Filthy Lucre stalwart Geoff Clapham, who sang covers from previous events.

Thanks to high attendance and the generosity of our supporters, we were able to exceed our financial target of £750, taking in a total of £1350.

We Break Strings is an upcoming web project that will act as a hub for alternative avant-garde music in London, including listings, news, and more. Named after a recent book about this emerging scene, it’s an effort to work together to reach a broader audience. Twenty organisations are on board, covering a diverse range of artistic approaches. This cooperation will allow us to engage in bigger projects, like enlisting student representatives and is an important step forward for a scene that is beginning to achieve greater prominence.​
