The Dirty Water Club
Forthcoming Dirty Water gigs:
The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club’s name is derived from The Standells' hit “Dirty Water” which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.
Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo the top 30 and Kerrang the top 100!), The Gories, Radio Birdman, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers (from the Cramps), The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, The Von Bondies, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 220.127.116.11's, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original 60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.
Today the Club's primary venue is the Shacklewell Arms in Dalston, East London.
