SEA PINKS +MUSIC CITY
Sep 28 @ 8:00 pm

Sea Pinks + Music City + Tbc

Friday 28th September. Doors 8pm.
£7 (Black Box members £5.50)

We are delighted to present Belfast’s finest purveyors of bittersweet guitar pop. Sea Pinks perform live at the Black Box to mark the release of their seventh album ‘Rockpool Blue’.

Rockpool Blue is the seventh album by Sea Pinks. At 28 minutes, it’s a short record about the pressure of taking on adult responsibilities when you still feel like a kid, and about the unexpected joy that can come from embracing that. Throughout, the band shrug off the ambivalence that has often characterised their best work for what turns out to be their most cohesive, outward looking and ultimately positive set of songs to date.

Music City

Music City is the new band from Conor Lumsden of The #1s fame, due to release their debut single on Static Shock Records in the near future.

Should be a banger.

Live: Belfast Black Box – September 28th 2018, Dublin Bello Bar – October 19th 2018

Peter Brötzmann’s ‘Full Blast’
Oct 4 @ 7:45 pm

Peter Brötzmann (reeds) Marino Pliakas (e-bass) Michael Wertmüller (drums)

Peter Brötzmann is the living legend of European new jazz. He has exemplified European improvised music for over 40 years and participated in countless international collaborations. Of all his current projects, Full Blast – with the precise and dynamic Swiss rhythm section of Marino Pliakas and Michael Wertmüller – is the most consistent and the longest running.

Their fifth album once again treads new territory, involving electronics and new mixing techniques. The result is an album that is nonconformist and urgent; a distinct work in the world of contemporary jazz.

Live, Full Blast is a cleansing tornado. This concert is pretty much mandatory if you’re a fan of free jazz, noise-rock or extreme music.

“one of the most devastating forces to ever touch a saxophone” Pitchfork

 “There was nothing to do but surrender to this amazing performance” All About Jazz

 “nonconformity and richness in variety stands on his own in contemporary jazz.” Trost

WorldService Project are the leading specialists of Brit ‘punk-jazz’ and are one of the most exported live acts in their field. Their energetic live shows have taken them to festivals across the world, touring in 18 countries and releasing three highly acclaimed studio albums.

This Spring 2018, WorldService Project launch their highly anticipated fourth album; Serve on Rare Noise Records. Fresh off the back of mammoth tours across America, Europe, Japan, India and China, the epic and anthemic live sound of WorldService Project is in equal measure thrill and theatrical.

“jazz-infused nu-funk, rammed with stop-start melodies, crunching bass-guitar and drum grooves, and sophisticated horn” The Guardian

“The sound is Mingus and late-Coltrane mixed with hardcore punk, math metal and Zappa-esque mayhem” The Irish Times
