A night of electronic music at Bristol’s trendy flan selling-organic beer drinking -sofa sitting-vintage wearing- tea shop, the Birdcage on Corn Street.

There are three acts playing, myself, Jilk and T-toe.  Jilk and Ttoe have known and worked with London’s underground electronica label Bit-Phalanx for many years, and it was actually Jilk himself who spotted me at a Drawn Recordings night (funnily enough sharing the stage with T-toe), who asked me if i’d be interested in coming on board.  Last October saw the first label release I’ve done which was through Bit-Phalanx.  Essentially this night is three electronica artists playing out for no real reason other than because we love gigging.  We are so excited to all be on the same show for once, (as we are endlessly supporting each other at live shows), so expect a lot of energy, a lot of foot tapping come body moving, and i’ll be there with Jason who provides mesmerising visuals to my live shows.

Its £3 which means, for those of you not so great at maths, £1 per artist.
I feel this is a reasonable deal, and if you feel otherwise, perhaps you should come in and heckle?

IWD

I was excited to play another IWD event this year, on Wednesday I played a gig in London with a largely female line up. One of my first gigs years ago was an IWD event, which actually was the first i’d heard of, or really noticed what IWD was about.  It’s now become important for me to think about what it means to me, and raise awareness to support the cause.


“International Women’s Day has been observed since in the early 1900’s, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies…

Many from a younger generation feel that ‘all the battles have been won for women’ while many feminists from the 1970’s know only too well the longevity and ingrained complexity of patriarchy… The unfortunate fact is that women are still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts, women still are not present in equal numbers in business or politics…

However, great improvements have been made. We do have female astronauts and prime ministers, school girls are welcomed into university, women can work and have a family, women have real choices. And so the tone and nature of IWD has, for the past few years, moved from being a reminder about the negatives to a celebration of the positives.

Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. A global web of rich and diverse local activity connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local women’s craft markets, theatric performances, fashion parades and more…”

Igloo Mag Review A.V.N.E.

I had a rather lovely review from Igloo Mag the other day.

“…her sounds single her out as a new hybrid genus. Discreet and memorable new thinking scrupulously executed.”

Independent Venue Week.

Im so happy to be invited down to the Louisiana to play this event. (for more info on Independent Venue Week, see my earlier blog post here. )

Thursday.
Doors at 7.30pm.
£6 on the door.

Top Floor:
Small Engine Repair – 10.15-11.00

The last time I played the Louisiana was with the Crisis Project in December, and we had the visual artist, Jason (from Crisis Project) create a huge screen behind us and projected live visuals throughout both of our sets.
This time, we are lucky enough to have an even more advanced set up. Jason is talking of two screens, angles, different projections, and other visually tasty things.  As i’ll be playing I wont get to see how grand it looks, but I’ll look forward to watching the Crisis Project do their thing with extra visual stuff happening, and whoever is filming/photographing the event, i’d love to see how it looks afterwards!For those of you that want cheap list you can get me on facebook and i’ll put your name down on the door.
Thanks, see you there!
