The Deadhouse

An experimental club night celebrating urban wilderness and the repurposing of derelict space, this is an ongoing, irregular and shapeshifting event, taking place in unusual locations across the UK and beyond.

As part of her residency in the Rifle Range at Somerset House Studios, LoneLady brings the second edition of Shutters Down! from Manchester to London. Rarely accessible to the public, The Deadhouse is a subterranean space beneath the Somerset House courtyard housing a number of seventeenth century gravestones from a former chapel located on the site.

Titled ‘Transmissions From A Wilderness State Of Mind’, LoneLady will transform The Deadhouse into an atmospheric installation, and will be playing a selection of music shaped by post-industrial landscapes.

Her guests will be John Doran (DJ set)  - music writer and co-founder of influential culture website The Quietus and Vanishing  (live set) - new avant-noise/spoken word project borne out of Islington Mill, Salford with a new album forthcoming on acclaimed experimental label Tombed Visions.

Shutters Down!

in a superstitious return  - I fled to the luminous outskirts  - to recover - in music, in landscape, in magic transformations -  grainy treasures -  and a place to belong
