Live Preview: Ashmolean Late Nights III

The third instalment of the Ashmolean Museum’s Late Nights series certainly looks like it’s best yet. On Friday 11th November, serving up a double dose of top quality Oxford entertainment, Fixers and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs will set up camp in Britain’s oldest museum and dish out the hits to the dance-floor. Hosted by the Notting Hill Arts Club, the evening finishes on a high with a set by DJ Mim of Black Cab Sessions. Doors open between 8:30 and 9:00pm, lasting until 1:00am, and tickets cost £12.

Set in one of Oxford’s finest historical buildings, Late Nights III will celebrate the future of the city’s thriving music scene. Fixers, who have already been heralded by NME, BBC and us (of course), accelerate towards the end of a fantastic breakthrough year. Those who caught their “performance-of-the-festival” set at Truck 14 will understand just what a force this band are set to become.

You could argue that Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs are Oxford’s most successful export since Foals. Pretty much single-handedly, Orlando Higginbottom has taken his native American headdress and confetti bombs around the UK and Europe in a one-man-mission to spread the good word of infectious turbo-bass powered electro-jungle-house music. No mean feat, I think you’ll agree. TEED recently played at Ibiza Rocks with electro-royalty Fatboy Slim as well as garnering wild support from BBC Radio and Channel Four Music.

This is one not to missed! Tickets can be purchased from WeGotTickets.
