Oxfam shop also hosts former Suede frontman Brett Anderson, Ghostpoet and Busted’s Charlie Simpson

Fatboy Slim kicked started a series of live performances inside a popular Dalston charity shop on Monday night (September 26).

The legendary “Right Here, Right Now” DJ played alongside fellow producer Kissy Sell Out and electro duo Man Like Me at the first of four fundraising gigs at the Oxfam store in Kingsland Road.

Former Suede frontman Brett Anderson and Mercury Prize nominee Ghostpoet also took part in the fifth anniversary of the Oxjam music festival, raising money to fight poverty, on Tuesday.

Busted star Charlie Simpson appears tonight (Wednesday) and Damon Albarn will be launching the album Kinshasa One Two in a sold out gig on Thursday.

Fatboy Slim, who played in the first year of Oxjam, said: “As well as being one of the highlights of my DJing calendar, I see it as the best way for people to use their love of music to help a really worthwhile charity like Oxfam.”
