Vultures and a Birth Bash!
- Hi there Mailing List Folks!
There are two big things coming up in the world of noisy goodness!
*_Wednesday 4th March Steve Beresford, John Edwards, Will Connor at the
First, in appreciation of Steve Beresford's birthday (albeit a day or
two off), the Klinker is presenting Steve Beresford on piano, John
Edwards on bass, and yours truly on drums. I can't express how honoured
I am to have been asked to be part of this celebration and I can't
express how much I appreciate Steve's kindness, inspiration, and
friendship since I moved to London a year and half ago! He's truly a
star on and off the stage! Come celebrate the anniversary of the arrival
of this musical genius on our planet by basking in his masterful ivory
tickling along with the incredible, tastefully-placed energetic sounds
of John Edwards' low end madness!
This Klinker event is being held at the Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road,
Nunhead, London SE15. Doors at 19:30, show at 20:00. £5/£3 Concessions.

*_Saturday 7th March Vultures, Diva Abrasiva, BLISTRAP, Ampersand, and
special guest Steve Beresford at Cafe OTO_*
Vultures has the great pleasure of opening for a night of amazing
artists when we play with Diva Abrasiva from Edinburgh featuring
Composer Lin Zhang and their cross between improv and industrial sounds
using Chinese folk instruments and power tools! Also on the bill are
Sheffield's BLISTRAP showcasing Mick Beck on reeds, Jonny Drury on
guitar and electronics and Phill Wood on percussion. Last but certainly
not least is London's own Ampersand, bringing huge metal sculptures to
the stage to enhance their detuned bass and an array or electronics and
homemade noise makers!
Steve Beresford, a day after his real birthday, will be giving a talk on
electronic goodies and improv, and representatives from Fractured Spaces
Records and Back to the Womb Records will be selling their wares. If has
not been confirmed yet, but Dorkbot London and Open Lab have both been
asked to participate with tables displaying their projects and
information on their upcoming workshops and other electronic music

entertainment starts at 20:00. £7/£5 Concessions. Pre-sale tickets and
