The next in Buds & Spawn’s series of lockdown livestream events!
Another packed hour and a half of exclusive live performances, outstanding music, live chat and the opportunity to ask your burning questions, featuring…
// PERHAPS CONTRAPTION //
Possibly the world’s only 9 piece art-punk marching band? And definitely the only ones who have created a jaw dropping piece of gig theatre about our place in the cosmos (Nearly Human)!
Perhaps Contraption is a multi-award winning, classically trained, 9-piece progressive brass band and theatrical music troupe from London. The band branched out into theatre to push the boundaries of live music performance, and find a totally new way to engage audiences in complex concepts whilst introducing
them to new genres of performance art and music.
A band for 7 years, they have performed at Glastonbury Festival, The EFG London Jazz Festival, Bestival, London Roundhouse, Cross Linx Festival (Netherlands), Southbank Centre, Latitude, Artisti in Piazza (Italy), Buskers Bern (Switzerland), and supporting Amanda Palmer throughout Europe to name a few.
Stalwarts of the Sheffield festival and party scene, Captain Avery & the Cosmic Triceratops of Intergalactic Peace are a bunch of celestial apes in a sun-drenched space fugue.
They play cosmic afrobeat / psychedelic hilife / intergalactic shanties / tropical punk / world-gaze / party skronk
WILD DANCING! COLLECTIVE SINGING! SPACE CHANTS! GLITTERED LOVE!! SEQUINED DEBAUCHERY!!
