When lockdown started, we were approached by our friends at The Social (one of the most culturally rich and significant bars in London) to collaborate with them on a project to turn the virtual space of the bar into a daily blog.
A place normally buzzing with DJs, live music, chat, and conviviality was going to be shut for the medium term at least, so a team of us from White Rabbit, The Social and beyond started commissioning for a blog called Social Gathering, bringing together words, art, music, video and much more from award-winning, established and new voices from within the music and literary worlds.
Regular contributors and guest writers so far include David Keenan, Lias Sauodi of Fat White Family, Catherine Eccles, Sophie Green, Jeremy Deller, Hayden Thorpe, Cold War Steve, Eleni Avraam, Wendy Erskine and Steve Mason.
And The Social host afterwork drinks online at 6pm every day (Mon – Sat), with a series of guest hosts including Chris Frantz of Talking Heads/Tom Tom Club, Annie Nightingale, Nadine Shah and The Orielles. Get involved on The Social’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram
