For nine nights in July and August 2012, The 100 Club was host to Converse Represent, which saw artists including the likes of Blur, Nas, and Plan B play exclusive, intimate shows. Blur played a set that drew heavily on ‘Modern Life Is Rubbish’, but also featured seldom-heard B-sides and new track ‘Under The Westway’.
Paul Weller‘s show was attended by Liam Gallagher, who watched from the wings, and after the show promised that his band Beady Eye would one day play the 100 Club themselves.
The Converse and 100 Club-curated music series began with Graham Coxon’s performance in June 2011. Since then, Gorillaz Sound System, The Rapture, The Vaccines, Chairlift, Ghostpoet, Azari & III and many more have taken to the stage.
