What’s Cool and Unusual – 24th July 2013

Thu 25

Forenzics, 8pm
Colbourne Ave – 37-47 St Johns Rd, Glebe

Free-improv with trumpet, bass, guitar, drums. Cinematic, hypnotic and unpredictable landscapes of sound.

They are a force to be reckoned with, taking the audiences on a journey, sometimes wild and tumultuous, sometimes soothing, fragile and hypnotically beautiful.

The Red Rattler Theatre, 6 Faversham St, Marrickville

NAMINE (‘CELESTIAL LOVE’ ALBUM LAUNCH)
GOLDEN BLONDE

PLUS:
SAD TEEN POETRY (+ OPEN MIC!)
DJ UNBREAK MY HEART
THE SADDEST PROJECTIONS IN THE WORLD

Teenaged emotional house diva Namine’s debut album “Celestial Love” (Bossman Records) is a Wagnerian outpouring of pathos if ever I saw one and we are ever saddened to launch his epic trance ballads in live form.

Joining Namine are sad sacks Golden Blonde who are soon releasing their debut album, “Gwen” on Tenzenmen.

Opening up the night we have a devastating lineup of writers revisiting the saddest, most embarrassingly overwrought poetry of their youth. There’ll be an OPEN MIC section for this, post in the event or sign up on the night for the opportunity to shed the very fabric of your soul onto an unsuspecting public.

All this on a Thursday, the saddest night of the week.

Mark E. Smith and the History of the Fall
Would you believe that The Fall IS John Peel’s favorite band? Tonight we explore the life of Mark E. Smith and the ever changing line up of The Fall. Probably the most uncompromising act to be spawned in Britain and definitely one of the finest examples of musical outsider art.
