Green Gartside plays two low-key London shows

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.

One batch of 50 tickets (per night) will go on sale at midday BST on Tuesday 8th NOVEMBER from the following URLs:

Thursday 8th December show:
Friday 9th December show:

Another batch of 50 will be made available from the same URLs at midday on 29th November. And that’s it! 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.
