Though the winter season seems to have set in hard in London, nothing could dampen the spirits at East London gem Paper Dress Vintage as post-punk hotshots DEADLETTER played an intimate set with support from Spanish indie outfit Melenas. DJ sets came from Jordan Cook & Oli Paget-Moon (Telegram) and Sophie Landers (Black Doldrums/ Fuzz Records).

In line with Estrella Galicia´s efforts towards sustainability, the event featured several interactive elements embodying the Reduce, Re-use and Recycle mantra. Attendees were encouraged to bring along old records, CDs and cassettes and trade them in for limited edition, 100% recycled merchandise. DJs then delivered a session cherry-picking from these old records before they were recycled after the event.

In the second of the series of collaborations between SON Estrella Galicia and Paper Dress Vintage – an ongoing cultural exchange intent on bringing Spanish beer culture and musical talent from the UK and Spain together – we witnessed a new way of thinking and a future-facing gig environment. We can’t wait wait for the third edition – keep your eyes peeled.
