The Rogue Collective will be working in association with London Victoria and Keech Cottage Children’s Hospice for their next instalment of eclectic entertainment at Club 85, Hitchin.

Billed as a charity fundraising event, the collective promise to deliver a neon-inspired Venetian ball, where personal identity (although possibly required at the door on entry) should very much remain hidden by way of mask until the stroke of midnight: when participants will be encouraged to unveil their true face during the ceremonial culmination of what might be Hitchin’s first ever Masquerave!

Don’t have a mask? Better face facts! The Rogue Collective are here to help you!

That’s right, you needn’t fret if your freckles are free from façade, for we will facilitate a mask-making workshop throughout the evening, where you can create your very own disguise, with all materials and masks provided. Of course, if you would like to bring along anything that could contribute to the decorating of masks then please do.

But this mask-ed madness is merely one slice of our evening-pie!

The Rogue Magician will also make his presence known amidst the day-glo frenzy with his tricks and mind bending antics! This episode even features an auction of promises. Meaning you could be set to win anything from guitar lessons, to a Swedish body massage!

And It wouldn’t be Rogue without our personally hand-picked and summer-ripe rabble of bands and DJ’s:

Uncle Debauchery
Mummy will be proud of her new favourite brother – that’s Uncle D to you children! Provided of course, she is at home with the blues-inspired dirge of bands like Kyuss, Orange Goblin and Clutch. Hailing from Brighton, this gruff group of stoner-metal mentalists promise a set fuelled by riffage guaranteed to evoke a womb-like state, fronted by the Waits-esque gravelly tones of Mike Fallon, who also happens to be a beloved member of Rogue’s extended family. Like an uncle, if you will, only debauched!

You’d be pressed to find any DJ in North Herts more synonymous with Dubstep than T_!. Well known for being ferociously active in the scene for many years now, we are honoured to have him at the club for a set full of the best tunes this genre has to offer. T_! can be found playing out regularly in Cambridge at the famous Stink Like Sock night, which boasts an amazing line-up of DJ’s and an incredibly bottom-heavy sound system to boot!

Hazel Turnock
We’ve been pining over this one for some time now! And to no surprise either, since Hazel has always blazed her own trail, the fruits of which beget a unique blend of retro acoustic rockabilly! We’re very pleased to have landed thumb-first on this Screaming Cockroach, having featured a recording of Get Over Here And Fall In Love With Me on our November podcast for Rogue’s Victorian Ball. Hazel will now be performing a solo set at this months Masquerave.

Alto wit…

Shirobon Chip-and-Pin-Core from Norf Lan’daan. Preying on the nostalgia of the now 25-30 bracket’s penchant for reliving 8-16 bit coin-gobbling gaming in a dance-floor context! Ch-ching!

… With more DJ’s spinning the best in alternative disco ’til 1am, including DJ Antlion who’ll be playing out Dubstep and Drum and Bass.
