The famous fruit of Bob Geldof’s loins is set to spin the decks at 360°
Actually, it’s not just Peachy, because Peaches Geldof – daughter of Bob, courter of tabloid controversy – isn’t the only one playing at 360° on New Year’s Eve. Nope, she’s going to be joined by Fifi Brown (apparently her real name, though it’s trumped by Peaches’ full title: Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof) and the pair will play as Trash Pussies.
But… well, it’s Peaches that’s the big draw here, isn’t it? As the daughter of Mr Boomtown Rat himself, the young socialite has been attracting paparazzi since her teenage years. Her relationship with the media is complicated – she frequently rails against exploitative paparazzi stalking, despite relying on the high profile it brings to advance her career. But, recently, she has managed to step beyond the ‘spoiled rich brat’ archetype that some claim her to be. In the past few years, she’s become a fashion model, a TV presenter (her credits include the documentary Beginner’s Guide to Islam), a columnist and even a would-be media magnate with the launch of her magazine Disappear Here. Oh, and a DJ, of course.
So, what – aside from the flashing of camera bulbs and some fancy clothing – can we expect from the night? Well, the girl plies her trade in the clubs of London, where electro rules the day and mashup gigs have become a weekend standard. So you can expect indie-electro tunes – especially, we’ll bet, those from cooler-than-thou London bands with tight jeans and funny hats – with pop and rap thrown in for good measure and maybe a squelch of grime to add a bit of gritty chic.
Trash Pussies play 360°; night runs 8pm-3am, Dhs895 including snacks and selected drinks. For tickets go to Jumeirah Beach Hotel lobby after 6pm
