Stadtklang: Inner City Pressure


Arcola Theatre | Arcola Theatre Bar
24 Ashwin Street | London | E8 3DL | United Kingdom

Open to: Alumni | Public | Academic | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Open

Journalist and writer Dan Hancox will join UCL Urban Laboratory at the next Stadtklang music evening at the Arcola Theatre Bar in Dalston to discuss and explore his critically acclaimed book 'Inner City Pressure: The Story of Grime' (William Collins, 2018). This weaves the explosive story of London’s grime music, and its stunning triumph against the odds, into the history of the 21st-century city, where gentrification, urban protest, pirate radio, police harassment, riots and tragedy are intertwined in the evolution of this stunning and alien style of grassroots urban music.

Dan Hancox writes about music, politics, gentrification, cities, protest, and more, chiefly for the The Guardian and Observer, but also the New York Times, London Review of Books, Newsweek, Vice, The Fader, New Statesman, Dazed, Frieze, Mixmag and XXL.

Stadtklang is UCL Urban Laboratory's music night run in collaboration with Goldsmiths’ Visual Cultures. All welcome, free entry from 6pm and no prior booking.
