E6 NEWS, THINGS TO DO

Fancy a musical rendezvous with lil’ ole’ EastBlam?

We are having a shindig! Oh yes, we are!

EastBlam have teamed up with the lovely AppleCart Cafe (you all follow us avidly of course, and therefore read our last article on them. If you need a refresher, have a peek here) and will be holding an electrical evening of country and blues music at their fine venue on 12th August.

We intent to have local beer provided by Silvertown’s very own Husk Brewery; local bands, including the lovely LJA Brown  and Newhams only best country band, the Newham Country Club; and hopefully some local people (errr, that’s you, guys). All that packaged up nicely in the rustic AppleCart setting… So get it in your diary now, in RED PEN! Continue Reading

E6 NEWS, THINGS TO DO

You are 16 going on 17…

2017 is upon us, and at EastBlam HQ we are feeling reflective.

2016 was a tough year – it brought us Brexit, Trump, the death of Bowie, excruciating budget cuts (especially for Newhamites) and the Hammers moved to Stratford. It’s easy to slide into the new year with the weight of the last one still on your shoulders so before we clean house, we had a little stop and think about the good bits of E6 we have discovered (or discovered us) this year.

Yep that’s right, it’s time we had a Team America style montage (ok, less montage, more list but the sentiment is the same!) before we set some motivational Pinterest style New Year’s resolutions to take us into 2017. Lets go… Continue Reading

It kicks off with a bang on 3rd September with an all day LIVE ART & MUSIC-ATHON (quick, get it in your diary or click here for the Facebook event.) and we’ve got the insider scoop from some of the artists! Yep, that’s right, investigative journalism, right here people… Continue Reading

HOME GROWN TALENT

Introducing LJA Brown. Musician.

What, another muso in our midst???

Musical bunch, the far easties. Just 5 minutes ago we were here chatting about that there Gaptooth, and now it turns out there is another superb and over talented instrumentalist among us.

Remember Mr LJA Brown? Yes, the one you saw at Red Door the other night with the big beard…played a storming set followed by some serious northern soul, yeah, that one… Continue Reading

E6 NEWS, SHOPS & MARKETS, THINGS TO DO

Greatfield Community Market dates for 2016

Your favourite market is BACK!

Soooooooo, your favourite (erm, and only) community market is back for 2016! The Greatfield Residents Association peeps will be running their market in quarterly instalments this year and hopefully well on the way to making it a permanent fixture of our East Ham lives.

The Spring edition is on 12th March 2016, and guess what? East Blam will be there selling some more limited edition prints (who saw our New-Ham print last year? They sold out BTW and we was very proud, so we was!) as well as a few cheeky fashion accessories made by our pals at Badger & Black. Be sure to drop in and say hello, eat some stuff, drink some tea and what not. Continue Reading

West Ham welcomes Spectrum Studios

The far east{london} gets a rehearsal studio

Since moving in to East Ham, we have been keeping a beady eye out for somewhere to make music (erm, noise?) without upsetting the neighbours and had discovered a distinct LACK of rehearsal spaces out here in the far east{london}.

Enter Spectrum Studios to solve all our far eastern muso woes (hurrah!) in the form of a respectable rehearsal space complete with retro furry wall art that doubles as super cool sound proofing. Continue Reading
