The Barbican is delighted to announce that Grizzly Bear will be performing a special, one-off concert with the London Symphony Orchestra on October 31st.

ClubStage 10.15 pm – 12.30 am: DJ Set by Idjut Boys.

“For funkin out on the dancefloor or lounging like you really mean it, ‘Press Play’. It’s very, very good!” Time Out

The Idjut Boys don’t make the kinda dumb productions that usually proliferate dance music. Their tracks grab disco, dub, electro, funk, house, hip hop and rock, then fuse the lot into the kind of groove that leaves dancefloors reeling and their peers speechless. With odd track titles like ‘Frogs Arrrse’, ‘Tea Tray Formerly Known As Coffee Table’ and ‘Caught Short’ the lads are always looking to lighten a dance world that most producers take a tad too seriously.
