First announced here in November, the first ever Concrete and Glass showcase will roll out across Shoreditch and its environs this autumn, aided and abetted by DrownedinSound.
Taking place on the 2nd and 3rd of October, stages at the event will also be co-hosted by John Kennedy (AKA the only decent thing left on Xfm), Time Out, 6Music’s Steve Lamacq, The Stool Pigeon, Young Turks and Rough Trade Records.
Making use of the array of venues in east London, Concrete and Glass will spread musical acts across 17 venues, all of which are within nine minutes’ walk of base camp at Rough Trade East.
Venues confirmed so far:
Hoxton Bar & Grill
Rough Trade East
The Old Blue Last
Whitechapel Art Gallery
If there’s another thing there’s plenty of in Shoreditch – apart from thin people and Red Stripe – it’s art spaces and an art-centric strand of Concrete and Glass will be produced by Flora Fairbairn Projects.
More details coming soon…
