How time flies. It is a month since I spent the early part of UK Election Night in the company of Hard Evidence at DIY Space for London. The combination of a live performance inspired by Thelonious Monk coupled with a viewing of a film about the great artist worked particularly well.
On Thursday 13 July 2017, Tome Records, a record shop based at DIY Space are presenting another evening of live music and film, this time centred on the works of Charles Mingus. Music will be provided by Hogcallin’ a seven piece band who play Mingus in a self-declared ‘…brash and non-conformist style.’ Sign me up for some of that! The film ‘Mingus in Greenwich Village’ combines performance with interviews presenting ‘an impressionistic view’ of the musician.
Advance booking can be made via Tome Records (above) and details of the venue and times are on the flyer- although it is probably worth aiming to get there relatively early in the evening as last time the band performed before the film.
