LSFF: Special Event: Little Stabs of Happiness

15 Jan 2016

The legendary ICA club night returns with quiet music, films, loud music & dancing. Includes a rare screening of The Savage Eye.

A revival of Little Stabs at Happiness, the legendary music and film club presented by Mark Webber at the ICA from 1997 to 2000. Early evening experimental films and contemporary music will be followed by a rare screening of The Savage Eye, all shown on 16mm film, just the way it should be. When the credits roll, the volume rises, as original Little Stabs DJs and special guests spin disco anthems, new wave big beats and smash hits of yesteryear.
