London Club, The Cause raise £50,000 for charity and announce 4 months of shows before closure in 2020
Whilst primarily fundraising for mental health charities, recent events have also raised funds for organisations to help the homeless and asylum seekers. Over £50,000 has been raised for charity from the venue and its associated events so far.
Key parties coming up include Unbound Day & Night this Saturday 17th August with Batu, Peverelist, Discwoman’s SHYBOI, Lukas Wigflex and The Cause co-founder Kyle Monologue, who’s own party ‘The Model’ also returns 28th September with Kerrie live and A Made Up Sound.
Saturday 24th September sees the return of Tribes, a huge show that takes over it’s neighbours Grow Tottenham for a full sixteen hour, indoor & outdoor party spread across seven spaces with various collectives hosting each. Jennifer Cardini, Axel Boman, A Guy Called Gerald, Truly Madly, Subb-an, Adam Shelton and Silverling all play alongside a mystery guest who has previously been titled ‘Britain’s godfather of techno’.
Whities on 31st August welcome Avalon Emerson, one of the scene’s most inventive DJs. Combining expert CDJ wizardry with daring blends between genres, her sets take dance floors on a joyous whirlwind. She plays at The Cause alongside Cõvco, a London DJ whose sets span footwork, jungle, bass and techno.
Legendary London party Faith toasts to two decades, saying goodbye with one final dance on Saturday 7th September. Maurice Fulton and Byron The Aquarius are joined by all the original residents for the last disco.
Fridays are looking particularly hot in September. The 6th September sees a surprise set from a certain Hotflush Recordings boss (a pretty easy guess). 13th September features Chicago’s founding father of house Lil Louis, the 20th is a collaboration with Hinge Finger, an imprint run by Joy Orbison and Will Bankhead, whilst Mr Ties & Kiwi bring us Crossbreed – a new sex-positive rave for London on the 27th September.
Four killer parties are also planned for Halloween. Shut The Front Door on Friday 25th bring the disco, whilst Saturday 26th sees the infamous XXX Block Party with a very special b2b featuring Alienata and two undisclosed guests, alongside a stack load of surprise guests. Ben Sims and Kirk Degiorgio’s Machine take control of the cage 1st November whilst London’s number one cult queer party Adonis celebrates Halloween on the 2nd.
Tickets are now on sale for New Years Eve, possibly the last ever dance at the club.
Within just over a year of opening The Cause has seen the likes of Derrick Carter, Derrick May, Appolonia, Ellen Alien, Petre Inspirescu, Nicolas Lutz, Call Super, Skee Mask, Paranoid London and more all play. It has also gained a reputation for unannounced sets, with the likes of Gerd Janson, DJ Deeon, Marshall Jefferson, Daniel Avery, Jane Fitz, Voigtmann and Perlon’s Spacetravel playing surprise sets.
