    Love Music Hate Racism Presents

    The Melting Pot

    @ The Menagerie, Thursday 11th June

    Underscore Orkestra (Portland Oregon USA)
    The Sons of Robert Mitchum
    Katie And The Carnival
    DJ Venus Rollergirl

    Doors 9pm £4

    The term melting pot was first coined in the late 19th and early 20th century in America to describe the fusion of different nationalities, ethnicities and cultures. It was a metaphor used to visualise a society where people of all cultures would blend together to work in harmony.
    Northern Ireland, although little documented, has always had more than two communities, but today there are more people living and working here from around the world than ever before.

    People from Eastern Europe, Africa and Latin America have come to NI to make a better life for themselves and with them they bring more culture, music, art, food and languages. We can only benefit from this in the same way that other countries benefited from Irish emigration in years gone by.

    Love Music Hate Racism is an organisation that aims to celebrate cool and diverse styles of music that are beginning to emerge here, by combining them with some of the most talented bands in Northern Ireland. Therefore we are proud to announce a new and unique night for the people of Belfast.

    ‘The Melting Pot’, is a monthly live music and club night which aims to satisfy music lovers with a thirst for variety and a love for diversity. Celebrating and combining varieties of music such as afro beat, reggae, soul, funk, indie, rock, roots, punk, dance, dubstep, dancehall, hip hop, bangra, gypsy, Balkan, jazz, and swing, the list goes on.

    The Melting Pot will launch on Thursday 11th June at The Menagerie with a band called Underscore Orkestra all the way from Portland Oregon USA. Fusing Klezmar, Balkan, Gypsy, Jazz and Swing, Underscore Orkestra are a combination of musicians from a variety of musical disciplines and cultural backgrounds. They have toured Western America, Mexico and Guatemala and this will be their first time in Belfast.

    Also on the bill are local band The Sons of Robert Mitchum. The music is dark with undertones of Tom Waits and Nick Cave, and fuelled by Whiskey and Red Wine. A must see for anyone with a taste for the sinister.
    Kicking things off in the live department are Katie and The Carnival, an interesting and theatrical band with a weakness for the whimsical and a knack for intrigue. A carnival of sounds and a carnival of colour all round.
    Resident DJs Venus Rollergirl and Charlotte will provide the tie that binds the night, Venus with her intelligent, professional, and passionate fusion of beats from dubstep to reggae, and Charlotte with a variety of interesting tracks.

    Welcome to “The Melting Pot”.
