Back on the 25th January Common said Auf Wiedersehen to the Friday night staple they called Freitags with a final party for us all to say cheerio to the DJs who had entertained us over some 200 Friday nights, the likes of Will Tramp!, ESqueezy, Benjamin Yourself, Craig Campbell and Now Wave, plus of course say a chance to say thank you to Sebastian Matthes for putting together and curating Freitags over the 4 years.
The departure of Freitags clearly leaves a massive gap in Common’s entertainment schedule, so how to fill it? Well they’ve done it by focusing the new Fridays on those friends of theirs that they think are doing wonderful things in the big wide world; Tullis Rennie from The Electronic Exchange, Duncan from Dutch Uncles (aka Magic Legs), Alexander Tabor from meandyou and ex worriedaboutsatan Ghosting Season are amongst the first guests to grace Common’s DJ booth.
The brand new night is entitled ‘Well Future‘ and is “a tribute to every generic genre you can list on a club flyer“, a kind of extension of Saturday’s ‘Friends In Common‘ and will take place every Friday in the month apart from the 2nd week when as usual the task of entertaining us is handed over to ‘Pumping Iron‘.
‘Well Future’ – “bringing you a whole host of harmonious guests, musical confidants, past, present and well future”
