Saturday 2 February 2013 is the 70th Anniversary of the Red Army Victory at Stalingrad, an epic moment that turned the tide against Hitler. Philosophy Football have organised a brilliantly eclectic event to mark the occasion, featuring Thee Faction.
After a set of your favourite Thee Faction blisteringly hot R&B anthems to dance or march to, prepare for the warped fusion of Balkan Ska and Ottoman Punk that is the Trans-Siberian March Band.
The Trans-Siberian March band are a 13-piece Balkan Brass band with a fearsome blend of two clarinets, two saxophones, three trumpets, two tubas, two trombones, guitar, vocals and two percussionists, they never fail to get audiences dancing. If you are yet to experience them see more here.
Philosophy Football Nights are a curious mix of ideas and entertainment. Injecting the former into the occasion Seumas Milne, Guardian Columnist and author of The Revenge of History discusses the meaning of Stalingrad with acclaimed historian of the Eastern Front Geoffrey Roberts, author of Stalin’s General : The Life of Georgy Zhukov and Susan Richards, editor of the OpenDemocracy Russia website and author of Lost and Found in Russia..
