XOYO promises Everything Everything, and more

What looks set to become London's hottest new installation, club and performance space has announced the launch night line-up. The venue, close to Old Street Tube, is aiming to provide some of the best art, acts and DJs to grace capital or country, and it looks like things are starting well.

To kick off, September 15th provides a great excuse to take Thursday off work, as the excellent Everything Everything headline with a live set, while top jock award for the night has to go to the ever impressive Lord Sabre, Andrew Weatherall. Visions of Trees will also be performing, with the likes of Casper C, Dan Beaumont, Eat Your Own Ears and FACT Magazine DJs also carting a few tracks along too.

After that Dan Deacon takes over the venue on the 16th with his unique (read insane) cartoon samples, harsh synths, roots, bluegrass, indie and electro cacophanies. Then the first Friday night at the new East London haunt sees the techno-cum-electro-cum-whatever party Bugged Out! celebrate the release of the latest Suck My Deck album. This edition is courtesy of Friendly Fires, so expect them to be playing records along with Simian Mobile Disco, L-Vis 1990, and Hessle Audio's Untold.

Dance-hybrid darlings Mount Kimbie are down on the 21st, which will be well worth the effort. We managed to catch them outside the M25 at an excellent Manchester show in January. After the release of their highly anticipated Crooks & Lovers LP on Hotflush this summer, it's clear they're destined for big things, and judging by their live and recorded efforts so far, it's a well deserved fate.

From here on we'll leave it to you and XOYO's listings to organise any diary events. Though FACT Magazine's party on October 1st should be educational, if not inspirational and therefore noted, if not confirmed to comple an opening fortnight of quality parties.
