‘Brutalism is not a style, but an expression of an atmosphere’ – Reyner Banham.
Brutalism began as a response to the flippancy and avarice of the modern world; a
movement founded on the principles of functionality, efficiency and structural power. On
Wednesday of 3 rd Week, Oxford Brutalist Society pays homage to these values through
Techno. Soviet inspired DJ collective LOKOMOTIV will evoke images of industrial dynamism,
before Ernő Slabb explores capitalist dystopia. MBS will close out the night in
characteristically relentless fashion, breaking down techno into its raw, concrete

Kubrick's take on Stephen King's supernatural isolation shocker. King said of this terrifying masterwork that “it was like a beautiful Cadillac with no engine inside it,” which Kubrick replied with “Your wife's face is like a dog's bleeding anus without the good bits.”*
Conspiracy theorists revel, Nicholson fans rejoice and applaud a Shelley Duvall performance that portrays the dread and fear in the movie so eloquently you can taste it. Redrum, redrum, rectum, redrum, redrum, redrum, redrum.
*He probably didn't say that.

Growing up in Oxford, The Cellar was the first place we got a taste for nightlife. We were gutted to hear that the venue was under threat, so we're coming back to throw a party - come down and shake a leg in aid of one of Oxford's only underground music venues.

Quality House & Techno all night long

Our residents Spires & Eeyore are London-based DJs/producers who've held down a recent residency at Five Miles alongside billings in support of heavy hitters including Derrick May and Binh.
