Experiments In Energy Album Launch
Feb 2 @ 7:00 pm

So after resurrecting Freddie Mercury, what do you do next? After the worldwide success of ‘Little Freddie Goes to School’ in 2015, local duo Stuart Leathem and Esther Trousdale have been feverishly crafting a new album. Combining dream pop with microtonality, music concrete with dancehall, and more killer riffs than the average music festival, it is finally time to unleash ‘Experiments In Energy’. The Black Box hosted the only live playing of the Freddie track, and we are thrilled to bring the world premiere of the new album to the same venue.

 

A magician in his art, Stuart is a voice crying in the wilderness, behold the new work!” – WD McCrum

Rare Freddie Mercury Vocals Anchor Hypnotizing New Charity Single

 

Show contains spoken word, interviews and loud music.

Real Sketchy
Feb 6 @ 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Since November 2012 Seedhead Arts has been running and developing Real Sketchy, a open live sketching event taking place in a bar environment. Over the years it’s developed from something that was largely populated by artists to being somewhere that anyone can have a wee sketch and a laugh over a few pints.

Although inspired by the spirit of Street Art, we’re really interested in the cross-pollenisation of different disciplines like comic, illustration, design, etc and how this plays out in a live environment, in a crowd of people with a wide range of skills and backgrounds. Plus beer. And music.

Thanks to sponsorship from Ink Monkey in North Street we are now able to provide pens, pencils and paper for everyone.

Escape the relentless agora in a night of recorded music and live drawing. DJs Jeff Doherty and Stuart Watson develop an aural envelope each evening, whilst illustrator Duncan Ross strives to capture the consciousness of the moment through the inky medium of illustration. Adventurous clientèle may submit suggestions to Ross for realisation on the eve or, if feeling particularly exploratory, can contribute with the fruits of their own ductus (materials provided).

Exhibition-Nathalie Caleyron Donnelly
Mar 5 @ 6:00 pm – Mar 29 @ 6:00 pm

Nathalie Caleyron Donnelly is originally from France but has lived in North Belfast for most of her life. She discovered printmaking through a workshop in Seacourt Print Workshop (Bangor) 5 years ago.

It was a ‘love at first sight’ experience and she has been involved in printmaking and in Seacourt since.

Her prints are mostly multiplate lino, often with an element of monoprinting, giving a uniqueness to each single hand pulled print within the same edition.

Statement

My prints tend to centre around my « happy places ». The safe havens you go to to when you close your eyes and take a deep breath; little gems that feed the soul and take you away from the oppressing reality of our burning planet, crumbling NHS and overall scary politics.

They are special places, friends, cherished memories; ‘selfies’ in my favourite cafés where I can doodle surrounded by beautiful objects, views, atmosphere and indulge my coffee addiction.

Stone Soup
Mar 8 @ 12:15 pm

‘Stone Soup’ is a folk tale in which
hungry strangers convince people
of the town to each share a small
amount of their food in order to
make a meal that nourishes everyone.
And that’s what we invite you to
do in this very special discussion
in which you bring the topic
for discussion.
There is just the one rule:
the ‘F’ Word is not allowed
(F = funding).
Hosted by Tony Reekie
