Green & Friends To Play Live Event to Cap 2011
Thursday 8th December & Friday 9th December
Green Gartside + Friends
The Victoria, 451 Queensbridge Road, London E8 3AS
To mark the end of the year that saw the release of the Scritti Politti retrospective, “Absolute”, Green will be playing two very low-key shows featuring Scritti Politti material – the first for nearly four years.
On successive nights, Green and friends will be taking over the small back room of a neighbourhood pub for two evenings of live music and DJs. Each night will conclude with an hour-long set by Green, accompanied by members of Scritti Politti and playing a mixture of very new, quite new, quite old and very old material.
Robyn Hitchcock and Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor will play short support sets;
Rough Trade’s Geoff Travis will be taking care of DJ duties.
There are only 150 tickets available for each night. (The set list on both nights will be the same, so don’t buy tickets for both nights expecting to hear something different!) The first batches of 50 tickets will be put on sale at midday BST on Tuesday 18th October, when the following two links go live:
The remaining two batches of 50 will be put on sale at midday on the 8th November and 29th November. A maximum of four tickets can be bought per person.
NO TICKETS will be available on the door on the night.
If you aren’t lucky enough to get hold of a ticket, Green hopes to repeat this event at some point early next year in the run up to the finishing of the next Scritti album.
