Bikini Kill on Monday
Nick Cave the week after
Girl Band...3 gigs, London, Manchester and Dublin in November.
Think in October & Jan, respectively.
Saw them last year in London and they were great.
Pole is playing Cafe OTO in August. Negativland in October too.
Also going to see Keiji Haino and Charles Hayward in a few weeks.
They're doing a 3 day residency 14-16th November at Cafe Oto so I'm told, not been announced yet but the last time they did one 5 years ago they had a great lineup.
Well up for that.
I was just looking at this weekend at Oto, they're smashing it right now.
OTO’s getting fuller this year, which on balance is good. Makes getting a seat harder tho.
This should be nice
Go Go Penguin are doing some shows of their live re-score of Koyaanisqatsi in October - we saw this a couple of years ago and it was amazing. (It's a totally new score rather than an interpretation of the Glass score btw)
That's pretty brave attempting to match one of the best scores ever!
I was dubious going into it, I have to say - I love the Glass score, and it seemed the height of hubris to try and take it on. I was pretty blown away by it in the end though.
You've got me intrigued now. Also LOVE that Glass score...
Do you know Go Go Penguin? They'd just released their album Man Made Object around the same time they originally did these shows, and thematically/musically the score borrows a lot from that - give that a listen if you want to get an idea what it would sound like.
It's not the Glass score, or that much like it (although they do have minimalist leanings) - but the extra tension created by live musicians playing along with and responding to the film kind of made up for it.
Seeing Plaid on Saturday, Hey Colossus in July, Chastity Belt in October.
grrr. Stereolab cancelled for medical reasons last night, but have just announced the re-arranged date. For the last day of my holiday, arriving into Manchester Airport at 19.25. I probably could make it, if it's a 9pm kick-off, but suspect mrsb wouldn't be so keen on that idea.
djing at Rutabowas reggae night - Walthamstow...
HAckney Crew? littleseb, Fozzie Bear
can't see why not
Would love to go to that ska invita but I'm out the following night and I fear my co-parental unit would not be appreciative.
Free night of live music with a couple of open mic slots then some chilled electronic music through to full on funky brass band.
B52s at the Apollo in Manchester tonight
Joshua Abrams is playing Oto on Monday and Tuesday next week, and I would urge anyone with an interest in jazz & minimalism to go. His band are amazing
Cafe OTO → Joshua Abrams & Natural Information Society – Two-Day Residency, 8–9 July 2019
I think this will be busy!!
Explosions In The Sky next Feb at The Hammersmith Apollo.
THANK YOU this was awesome!
Dennis Bovell is doing the soundtrack to the classic film Babylon at the Jazz Cafe this Thursday. With Brinsley Forde.
Sink Ya Teeth are doing a free show at Manchester international festival on wednesday, anyone in? Part 2 ?
