Man found guilty of nightclub acid attack in east London

This post was originally published on this site

A man has been found guilty of throwing acid in the east London nightclub Mangle E8 that injured more than a dozen people earlier this spring.

Arthur Collins, 25, was convicted of carrying out the attack which took place at a Lovejuice Warehouse Party in the early hours of April 17. Collins’ friend, Andre Phoenix, 21, who had also been accused of taking part in the assault, was found not guilty on all charges.

Collins admitted throwing the bottle of the highly acidic fluid over clubbers, although he claims he had not known it was acid. Collins said he had thought the liquid was a “date rape drug” which he claimed in court he had taken from two men after “overhearing them planning to spike a woman’s drink.”

According to the Metropolitan Police, 22 people were injured in total. 16 of those individuals suffered serious burns, three sustained serious eye injuries, one of whom mentioned in court that their eye remains blurry. Another victim suffered horrendous third-degree burns to the left side of his face, ear, neck, and shoulder area.

The attack took place following an altercation between Collins — who claimed in court he was there to celebrate the pregnancy of his then-girlfriend, The Only Way is Essex star Ferne McCann — and a group of men shortly before 1a.m. CCTV footage shows him arriving near 9 a.m. and spraying the bottle several times shortly after the confrontation at 1 a.m. Collins was arrested shortly after the incident in Northamptonshire on April 22.

Collins was found guilty of five counts of grievous bodily harm with intent to harm and nine counts of actual bodily harm. He will be sentenced on December 19.

Fabric donates $80,000+ of ‘leftover fundraising cash’ to charity

This post was originally published on this site

Fabric is celebrating its 18-year anniversary this weekend, but this time around the London-based nightclub is giving rather than receiving.

After the venue’s closure in September, Fabric fans made a collective effort to reboot the club, raising money to support Fabric’s then potential re-opening. Fabric owners would eventually strike a deal with Islington Council and police officials to reinstate the club, allowing Fabric to open its doors once more several months thereafter.

The efforts of those that rallied for Fabric’s re-opening generated more than £330,000 ($388,919 USD). Left with £68,000 ($80,000+) of leftover fundraising cash, Fabric has donated the remaining funds to a variety of charities including The Loop, NTIA, Music Venue Trust, Centrepoint Midi Music Company, Make-a-Wish UK, Nordoff Robbins, and YUAF. The nightclub has erected a donor board in Room 2 of the club that displays the names of each person that contributed to the original fundraiser to benefit Fabric, an authentic addition to the nightclub’s sleek design.

Sasha unveils dates for two additional ‘Refracted: Live’ UK shows, releases new single, ‘True’

This post was originally published on this site

 

After witnessing sell out success at London’s Barbican Hall in May, Sasha has announced two UK shows for 2018. The producer is bringing his ‘Refracted: Live’ series to The Roundhouse London on Saturday, February 17 and at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall on Sunday, February 18. Bridgewater Hall is the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra’s primary venue, rendering Sasha’s upcoming performance all the more noteworthy.

“The moment we walked off stage at the Barbican we were saying — we have to do this again. We didn’t really have a plan in place. We had no idea the response to those shows was going to be so amazing. So this is [the newly announced dates] Round 2, and we’re getting to perform at two more iconic UK venues. We are looking to change the show slightly to incorporate some new music and make these shows as special and unique as the Barbican ones in May. We can’t wait!” – Sasha

Sasha has announced his intention to include new music and surprise guests as integral “Round 2” additions.

The Welsh producer appeared on stage alongside members of his production team, Charlie May (“Spooky”), Dennis White (“Thermal Bear”), and Dave Gardner during the Barbican shows. An 8-piece string section, live vocalists, and a percussionist rounded out the group, as Sasha played the piano and an assortment of other instruments, electronic and otherwise. The legendary performances have since been released on Blu-ray.

The additional shows would be good news on their own, but Sasha sweetened the deal pairing the announcement with a new single. Sasha’s latest is dubbed “True” and is currently available to stream ahead of its Friday, October 13 release. Featuring the London-based trio Dems, “True” is a minimalistic record whose richness lies in its otherworldly vocals and instrumental layering.

Tickets to the ‘Refracted: Live’ February shows will be available for purchase on Friday, October 13 at 10 AM.
