Gigs in Sheffield, 26th April and 1st May

Yes, I’m putting down my camera again and picking up my bass. Here’s an update of future gigs I will be playing:

The Tajalli Vortex

On 26th April (next Thursday) I’m playing with free-improv Psychedelia group The Tajalli Vortex at the Nether Edge Club, 2 Moncrieffe Road, S7

This is a bit of a special one as we will be joined by singer Damo Suzuki, former frontman with krautrock legends Can, and also 14-piece band The Gated Community.

We play music outside the comfort zone. It’s not instantly accessible, but well worth the effort – see my essay A Troublesome Noise for my thoughts on challenging music.

The venue’s a small one, and with 20 musicans playing, there’s not much space left for the audience, so book your tickets now – available from Freenoise and Rare & Racy.

The Tajalli Vortex are also playing in Warrington on Saturday 12th May, and we will have more gigs in Sheffield and London this June/July.

Karen Mulcahey

If free-improv psychedelia is too much for you to hack, I also perform with Karen Mulcahey and the 7% Solution, a more mainstream mix of folk, blues and rock with searingly strong female vocals from singer-songwriter Karen.

We will be at the Runaway Girl in Sheffield on 1st May, onstage around 9pm.

More Karen Mulcahey gigs: 26th May headling Wath Rocks at Montgomery Hall, Wath-on-Dearne. Accoustic gigs (guitar & vocals only) 24th June at the George & Dragon and 16th August at The Black Bull.
