FENCE RECORDS PRESENTS: FOUND + Kid Canaveral + The Pictish Trail (DJ set) + more
On Monday, September 5th, we’re putting on a special Fence Records show in London.
Now that our favourite London venue, The Luminaire, has closed, we’re going to start using a place called The Wilmington Arms – which is located in Clerkenwell, just over the road from Exmouth Market. It’s a braw pub that serves good food, nice selection of beer, and has a great wee venue next door. Perfect.
So, aye – this show will feature co-headline performances from FOUND and Kid Canaveral.
FOUND hardly need any introduction – they’re brand of experimental electronic schizoid-pop has been a staple at Fence events since the release of their second album, This Mess We Keep Reshaping. 2011 has been a big year for Tommy, Ziggy & Kev – their current album, factorycraft, came out in spring on Glasgow’s legendary Chemikal Underground label … and the summer has seen the boys hone their live skills with a slew of live dates and festivals slots under their belts. As well as a few dodgy festival curries, no doubt.
Before FOUND take to the stage, Kid Canaveral will have got everyone sweating their cardigans off. Our Edinburgh-based indie-poppers are experts at this sort of thing. We’re about to release the vinyl repressing of their fantastic debut album SHOUTING At Wildlife - so make sure you pre-order this now, so that you can sing along come September.
I’ll be DJ’ing between/after acts as The Pictish Trail … and there’s another special guest still to be announced.
Doors are at 19.30, with live music finishing by 22.30, and the place open until 23.00. Tickets are £8.50 advance / £10 on the door. There’s no postage charge, as all tickets will be kept under your name on the door.
It’s not a massive venue – so we suggest purchasing tickets now to avoid tantrums!
