How is it June already?
The spring went by in a flash and we’re gearing up for a summer of free musical highlights with our usual offering of fantastic food and drink that will make The Canteen the perfect summer venue for those days when you are not festival bound!
In June we have some stand out and unusual bands heading to our stage like the experimental Dog In The Snow, Brighton-based Helen Ganya Brown experiments with existential-driven lyrics and layers of off-kilter sounds to create a peripatetic musical landscape.
Finding inspiration in juxtapositions: the warm project title goes hand-in-hand with the grim ending of Kafka’s ’The Trial’. Inspired by the dark underbelly of Scott Walker, the mortal anxieties of Sufjan Stevens, the glistening soundscapes of Susumu Yokota, this is going to be a magical set not to forget.
Then later in the month we have the brilliantly bizarre Il Conciorto. They’re probably the only band that gets to eat their instruments on a regular basis, the Italian duo wire up peppers, cauliflowers, fennel and aubergines and proceed to make music with them. Every vegetable tells a story in their hands, revealing their secret passions and powers … or so the Conciorto boys would have us believe.
In July we are hoping for some good weather for the Boom Sound BBQ. BS006 Flavour launch party. Where Leo Samson feat. Gardna & Tiffani Juno are launching Flavour. You can expect plenty special guest DJs & MCs, a Neverlution Sound System and a big Boom BBQ going on out on our decking with some bangin’ food & cocktails
There’s more to come too so keep and eye on our facebook page for more events.
