New Club Night – Shabba-Dabba-Da

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

SHABBA-DABBA-DA

-AVALON’S LATEST CLUBBING INCARNATION, HITTING TOWN ON SATURDAY 12TH JUNE - 

For those who crave immortality through iconography, Shabba-Dabba-Da storms onto London’s party circuit; a clubbing event blending the world of high fashion with the Capital’s night life and spearheaded by a transatlantic meeting of minds.  

East London trailblazer and promoter Buster Bennett, famed for a decade of his Willy Wonka-esque creations in underground clubbing, teams up with Larry Tee, New York’s notorious bastion of the new-garde. Joining the two is Daniel Lismore, a living incarnation of the Blitz Kids lineage and a regular in the glossy pages of Vogue. 

As the smoke clears and recessionistas search for the newest hot-spot, Shabba-Dabba-Da gears London up for a boom-time party like no other; a Warholian interpretation of a utopian enclave in a dystopian world of fame, fortune and capitalism. Imagine The Blitz Vs Studio 54, with Jacuzzi’s. 

The event will take place on Saturday 12th June (and then once a month) at Avalon, East London’s newest cocktail bar, lounge and club. Set within the heart of Shoreditch, yet with a truly international feel, Avalon attracts a diverse and discerning crowd from all over London. The venue mixes traditional Oriental themes with edgy design elements.

Its marble cocktail bar is adorned with LED strips and the lounge offers guests the opportunity to relax in an opulent and eclectic space filled with discreet alcoves and huge flamboyant Baroque furniture. The dark and hedonistic club space provides the perfect area for late night dancing and the garden at the rear of the club, lined with red brick railway arches, is a huge hit with smokers.

The venue will offer a place of refuge for London’s Glamour-Glitz kids and kinder folk.

Guests are encouraged to dress up Pantomime-Hollywood and dance to Pop, Classic Pop and Dance-Pop supplied by Erol Sabadosh (Boombox resident), Larry Tee and Buster Bennett’s latest creations, stylist/DJs Maximus Crown & Munroe Bergdorf. Hosting provided by the fabulous Daniel Lismore and the latest dress-up icon, Burger Kim.  

Daniel Lismore, of Vogue Magazine infamy, will host Avalon’s indulgent lounge while O.M.G, East London’s latest scenester, will hype up the crowd on the dance floor. 

Documentation, performance, photography, filming and visuals will be undertaken by the art-stars of London’s avant-garde. 

“This party will bring the high-brow fashion bottle-service private club crowd together with the underground tastemakers and club kids that give London it’s unique edge,” says co-creator Larry Tee. “The music direction is designed to be a collage of the sing-along familiar toe-tappers and the exculsive underground groovey tracks that haven’t been heard at ANY club in London or throughout the world. The night will offer good clean fun with a wink to the rebel spirit of the East Side, a combination that is always needed in London; that Shabba Dabba Da feeling!” 

Shabba-Dabba-Da aspires to create a playground for the culturally rich. An enclave of unbridled expression where anything is possible, dreams are dreamt and headlines written. 

Shabba-Dabba-Da invites you to the launch of the future style of London. 

Table Service and V.I.P areas will be available by request. 

-BUSTER BENNETT, LARRY TEE AND DANIEL LISMORE ARE ALL AVAILABLE FOR INTERVIEW UPON REQUEST –  

Larry Tee

Larry Tee reached legendary status on the New York night club circuit as co-creator of Disco 2000 (of Macaulay Culkin’s Party Monster fame). He was also behind the Electroclash Festivals in NYC, Berliniamsburg (the club that gave the hipster neighborhood “its groove back” according to The New York Times) and The Love Machine, which launched TV celebrity RuPaul (he also co-wrote RuPaul’s 4 million selling song Supermodel (You Better Work)). 
He is also an acclaimed songwriter and producer/remixer that has worked on songs by many world famous artists, including Lady Gaga, La Roux, Princess Superstar, New Order, Andy Bell of Erasure, Major Lazer, and Peaches.

Daniel Lismore

Labelled “London’s most outrageous dresser” by American Vogue , Iconic Club Kid Daniel Lismore started out as a successful male model. At 18 he held his first night at Kabaret Prophecy, attracting the likes of Pamela Anderson and Alex Rose. He then moved on to Jodie Harsh’s legendary Circus, tasked with bringing the rich, famous and ultra creative down to the club. Famed for his jaw dropping-ly eccentric outfits, it wasn’t long before Lismore was being asked to wear them at fashion parties and music videos (including Kylie Minogue’s WOW and Alexandra Burke’s All Night Long.)

Since then he’s been behind a number of huge club night successes including Beach Blanket Babylon’s Slave to Fashion, Work! @ Heaven and Vogue. He’s worked with Philip Salon, Isabella Blow, Adam Ant and Angie Bowie and can boast Prince Harry, Alice Dellal and Matt Lucas as guests of his events.
