Animaux: Au Feu

Oct
07

Vous êtes tous des Animaux.

Very very excited (and nervous!) to announce that our next instalment will take place at the historic York’s FIRE STATION! This has been a dream since we saw the For Sale sign above the door for the fire engines. After gruelling negotiations with York’s council and the police, we were finally able to format an event that would make everyone happy.

We are investing heavily into the sound and light aspects of this, in order to truly transform the venue into something you will remember for a while – how many parties at a fire station have you been to? Add on great DJs, art pieces as well as visuals, a cheap bar and a place for those that want to chill and sit, a dance floor for those who don’t and you’ve got yourself an Animaux: Au Feu!

We are running the night in partnership with Blank Canvas, a Skippko.org project to find new and interesting venues in derelict buildings so that artists can practice, have workshops and galleries. Their motto is ‘To advance the education of the public in creative and visual arts and crafts and the techniques and practice thereof’ which we cannot support enough, thus are dedicating all of the profits towards their development. To accomplish this, we are collecting a tiny fee on the door (you are encouraged to donate more!) as well as a few donation boxes across the venue. We wouldn’t be able to do this without their support, so please give back – support the local art!

Cannot wait until you see what we have in store (or FIRE STATION)!

Animaux presents: Chris I’Anson

Vous êtes tous des Animaux.

We are taking over The Falcon Tap‘s bunker for this and bringing our good friend Chris I’Anson back – who can forget his blinding set at our second birthday?! For those uninitiated, Chris is the man behind Slipstone Records as well as wildly successful night in Leeds – On Rotation. This man knows his stuff so do come and experience some quality music with us.

The Falcon Tap is a proper pub so expect a variety of beers, ales, ciders as well as a new cocktail menu. We will, as always, be showcasing visuals and are bringing a massive rig to the tiny bunker.

We are also running a like & share competition to win a pair of tickets which you can find here. 

Here’s a podcast that Chris did a while back for us:

You can find the event over at Animaux presents: Chris I’Anson. Tickets are £4 via Resident Advisor, Earworm Records, The Nook, Bison Coffee Shop, The Falcon Tap or directly from our reps (numbers are on the event page).

See you on the dancefloor! 🙂
