Two extremely exciting supports announced for our upcoming shows – on October 7th Eric Chenaux will support Matana Roberts at the Prince Albert and on November 24th Cristobal and the Sea will support This Is The Kit at The Haunt. Tickets selling quickly for both shows already and I expect they will sell even more quickly now. Check WeGotTickets for both or go to Resident in Brighton.
YES! We are over the moon to announce a Brighton show for none other than Matana Roberts. One of the most original voices in new music today. The gig takes place on October 7th 2015 at the Prince Albert, Brighton.
She’s created an enormous body of work including solo sax/voice/electronics, saxophone duets with Frank Anderson, some amazing albums on Thrill Jockey Records with her old trio Sticks & Stones, all out jazz orchestras with Rob Mazurek and Roscoe Mitchell, contributions to albums by Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra and an incredible trio of albums for Constellation Records (the first three of a nine album set). Check the video above to hear her play with Tortoise‘s Jeff Parker and more!
The band are hoping for a few donations to help finish off their upcoming album, they write:
“We do need a few hundred pounds to finish off the next album (which has been 95% complete for such a long time). You are able to give donations if you choose and every single pound adds up and really helps. But this is optional.”
Head over to Bandcamp now, grab some free music, donate if you like and please spread the word!
