Songkick Detour show
already got The National tickets that week, dunno if I fancy two trips to the capital in such a small period.
on the other hand, Colin Stetson
I played the album to the wife on Friday (I really like it) and her response was, "Sort of thing you'd expect to see down Café Oto". :D
hope there's tickets left when it's within a reasonable amount of time to buy them
says 28th October

looks like they fucked up.
i will probably go now .
which was also arranged by Detour...
Nice one, Detour.
Colin every time though. Literally unbelievable the noises he can get out of one instrument.
There will probably be more than one night I reckon as Cafe Oto is tiny.
Basically wouldn’t recommend missing it, but you probably knew that already.
The link says it's on sale Wednesday, yeah? Or am I missing something?
and people pledged up front, etc.
then when/if the show goes ahead, you've got a guaranteed ticket.
I wanted to pledge, but now it's all PLEDGED UP, so I need to wait til it's actually on general sale on Weds. Is that it?
I don't understand the internet sometimes x
then after that it's just a general sale for the remaining tickets.
This performance is a week before the Television one, and I can see that ATP are one of the people who've pledged.
i'll see him at both i guess.
anyone have a clue if he'll just be playing acoustically or if there will be treatments/ben frost?
It's on 28th October.
I'd like to go actually cause I'll be down in London the weekend before for Bad Seeds partying so may as well. Surely it'll sell out in no time though if it's at Cafe Oto.
Can everyone hold off buying tickets until they announce more dates cause I won't be able to go to any of the ones that aren't on the Monday. Cheers.
So excited for this one.
2 tickets to the Monday 28th show?
Planning to go to Parquet Courts now instead. Would also consider swapping for 2 tickets to the Sunday 27th show.
Stetson takes precedence over Parquet Courts by a mile, but if anyone going on the Sunday wants to swap for a Monday ticket, let me know!
Looks like I won't be able to go any more and I'm at Nick Cave the night before so can't swap.
wish Ex Easter Island Head were supporting on Monday as well :/
I have 2 tickets for the Sunday show. Would like to swap for 2 tickets for the Monday instead. Can anyone assist?
If anyone has any going...
next JULY: https://www.facebook.com/events/508532415894822/
I swear even One Direction don't announce shows 10 months in advance.
got a ticket for sale for the monday show.
£11 i think.
Hello couldn't work out how to PM you, but I would love to have a ticket. Does anyone have one? Do you still have yours fuckyeahdubstep?
I've fractured my foot so can no longer make the Colin Stetson show at Cafe Oto on Monday 28th October. If anyone wants two tickets for face value let me know. They were £11 each so £22 in total.
KMG LIVE presents COLIN STETSON
Wednesday July 16th 2014
@ Dingwalls, Camden
11 Middle Yard, Camden Lock, London, NW1 8AB
Following his two sold out dates at Café Oto on the 27th and 28th of October of 2013, Koreema Music Group’s live sector KMG Live is proud to present 2011 and 2013 Polaris award nominee Colin Stetson.
£12.50 ADVANCE TICKETS:
Colin Stetson was born and raised in Ann Arbor, and spent a decade in San Francisco and Brooklyn honing his formidable talents as a horn player. He settled in Montreal in 2007.
To date Colin’s has released three albums in his New History Warfare album cycle described as: “pure revelation” according to All About Jazz and “a hugely impressive achievement… a sound that could only come from one person on earth,” according to Pitchfork, securing nominations for the Polaris Music Prize and landing on year-end lists at Pitchfork, Tiny Mix Tapes, SPIN and The Voice.
Colin’s astounding physical engagement with his instruments (chiefly bass and alto saxophones) produces emotionally rich and polyphonic compositions that transcend expectations of what solo horn playing can sound like. Stetson is equally at home in the avant jazz tradition of players who have pushed the boundaries of the instrument through circular breathing, embouchure, etc. (i.e. Evan Parker, Mats Gustafsson) and at the nexus of noise/drone/minimalist music that encompasses genres like dark metal, post-rock and contemporary electronics (i.e. Tim Hecker, Ben Frost – both of whom have mixed or remixed Stetson recordings).
Stetson has performed and recorded with dozens of artists, including Bon Iver, Arcade Fire, The National, TV on the Radio, LCD Soundsystem, Tom Waits, Feist, My Brightest Diamond, Laurie Anderson, David Byrne, Jolie Holland, Sinéad O'Connor, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Angelique Kidjo, Kevin Devine, Beanie Burnett, and Anthony Braxton.
He will perform at Dingwalls, Camden on the 16th of July 2014.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for guest list and enquires.
That must be the best solo musical performance I am ever likely to see.
not that Colin Stetson wasn't really great and his actual music is amazing, it's just that I don't have much knowledge of how saxophone/reed instruments in general actually work, so I couldn't fully appreciate the technique or see what he was doing, which is always a big part of enjoying a performance for me, annoyingly. I just felt a bit disconnected from his set.
