On Thursday July 22nd Creative Lancashire have organised a special music industry event - 'SoundBytes'. It is a full day of panel discussions, workshops, seminars, and one-to-ones with some of the brightest movers and shakers within the industry.
To coincide with this event They Eat Culture has put together a really exciting evening line-up at The Continental - which is open to the general public. This includes the fabulous Mistys Big Adventure (from Birmingham), an exclusive screening of the new Mogwai 'Burning' documentary and much more too!
To attend the day-time seminars/workshops (hosted at Avenham Pavillion) you do need to register, but be aware that places are extremely limited. For more information on what is on offer throughout the day please see the Creative Lancashire website...
Here is a run down of the schedule for the evening...
PRESTON IS MY PARIS DJS
Photographers & zinesters, Preston hipster collective 'Preston is my Paris' mix the tunes throughout the evening event.
Imagine Harry Nilsson strumming any stringed instrument that he can get his hands on. "Theatrical, epic, vaudeville tunes, driven by accordian, mandolin and organ and haunted by the ghosts of Anthony Newley, Scott Walker, Burt Bacharach and Jake Thackray." He’ll also appear at this year's Kendal Calling.
MISTY'S BIG ADVENTURE
A glorious 8 piece band from Birmingham, made up of brothers and sisters and twins and saxophones and trumpets and cute, weird dancers who produce uplifting, life affirming tunes. “The UK’s answer to the Arcade Fire” - The Independent.
