Welcome to another instalment of ‘party people’ versus ‘the man’. This time around, it’s excellent indie venue The Macbeth in Hoxton that’s fighting for the right to party at a reasonable volume. The council will be conducting tests into noise levels on Tuesday June 19. The venue are calling on music-lovers to assemble from 8pm so that our collective body mass will absorb the sound, keeping it away from the council’s meters and sending them packing. As reward for being treated as human sound-proofing, the venue will be offering free drinks from 9.30pm plus a barbecue and access to future-bass club night Watch Me Pivot. Standing still while your flabby bits deaden soundwaves: that’s the kind of activism we’re down with.
