Carnival of Colours Press & Launch Party
Justin Robertson and the Deadstock 33s, Ben Osborne (Noise of Art) and LIVE Superhero Jam
Brixton Bloc, 143 Stockwell Road, London SW9 9TP., 5:30pm-11pm
Noise of Art and Brixton Bloc are launching a series of pop-up music and art events in the heart of Brixton. Drawing inspiration from the light art, musical experimentation and avant-garde dance and theatre that pre-figured psychedelia in 1966, the events are named after the Beatles first fully electronic song, Carnival of Colour (which was only ever performed once, at London’s first electronic music festival at the Roundhouse).
The events will include live music, sound pieces, DJ sets, projected art, installations, street art, pop up restaurants and street food stalls, and a Christmas market.
Acts playing during the month include London’s original Acid House hero and DJ behind Legendary Shoom nightclub, Danny Rampling, electronic band White Noise (who released the UK’s first fully electronic LP in 1969), Horse Meat Disco’s cosmic disco don, DJ Severino, original Balearic darlings and Glastonbury headliners, The Woodentops, Czech electronic trailblazer Boris Karloff (debut London live gig), The Deben Collective and many more to be announced.
After a free launch event on Thursday 12 November, events proper begin on 27 November and continue throughout December, with a festive closing party on 19 December followed by Noise of Art’s New psychedelia’s Eve event on 31 December.
Brixton Bloc is a pop up cultural space in a disused social housing block on Stockwell Road (behind Brixton Academy). London based music and cross platform art collective, Noise of Art, is teaming up with Brixton Bloc and other London promoters, collaborators, bands and artists, to present a series of alternative festive live music, DJ and club nights. The nights lead up to New Year’s Eve, when Noise Art will launch it’s 10th Anniversary year with a celebration of the birth of psychedelia. Full line-up and details of other collaborators to be announced soon.
