Shot By Both Sides – London's premier purveyors of arcane, outlandish and fantastical musical delights - launch another sordid spektakular, on Friday 15th February. This is a minor-key and FREE (!) gathering in the intimate surroundings of the Deptford Bird's Nest.
Disregarding the patronising idiocy of bargain-bin indie nights, SBBS offers a ramshackle assortment of music, poetry, performance, spoken-word and strange men leering. Influenced by everything from the Antifolk scene to C86, from beat-poetry through to Rick Wakeman’s ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’, it is a heady, kaleidoscopic and keck-soiling experience. No guestlists, no doormen, no 5-quid cans of unidentified Norwegian lager. Doubtlessly some silly haircuts.
Expect a thrilling soundtrack of wonky psych, gritty '60s garage, gnarled folk, freakout jazz, C86 indie and Northern Soul, poetry, stories, free ‘zines, various handouts, literature/tape exchange, some peculiar visual treats, a few out-of-the-hat surprises and four delightful solo sets...
