Banquet Records’ New Slang club night announces a sponsorship deal with etnies
Banquet Records’ New Slang club night is happy to announce a sponsorship deal with skate brand etnies to run through the latter half of 2011.
Now in its 5th year, New Slang has regularly been bringing the biggest bands to Kingston on a Thursday night. The likes of Vampire Weekend, The Cribs, Bombay Bicycle Club, Foals and The Wombats have all graced the stage as well as many smaller, rising bands. With a very real focus on live music and with DJs playing indie / alt till the early hours the night is now known throughout the UK. Through the highs and not as highs, the love of doing it has not dropped since day one.
The night came to the attention of etnies who wanted to form an association with New Slang and Banquet were only too happy to be involved. New Slangers are already no strangers to skateboarding as New Slang teams up with Slam City Skates for a yearly game of s.k.a.t.e. in a nightclub named “New Slam” - this year’s event is on July 28th
With resident DJs Sean and Jon both skateboarders, the sponsorship sits well with the mindset of those that run the night. New Slang and etnies will be teaming up throughout the year for giveaways and promotional offers.
“What started out as us plugging a mic into the DJ booth and having our friend Frank Turner play some songs for us, has turned into a regular night out for the Kingston music community. As a skateboarder for most of my life, and a music fan for more of it, I’m flattered that etnies want to endorse our club night” - Jon Tolley, Banquet Records
”Music needs nights like New Slang and stores like Banquet Records, a good crew doing it for the love and genuine passion for independent music. We’re proud to be supporting them - like minds doing a good thing. A mutual love of skating helps cement the partnership too, and with the new etnies store now open in Kingston, it just made sense to support the scene”.- Tom Henshaw, etnies
