STEPHEN EVENS is a songwriter who has a lot of bitterness and resentment and is channeling it into writing songs to avoid its manifestion into a cancer or abnormal growth. He has spent most of his days touring here and there with minor indie celebrity. He has for now shunned the tourbus lifestyle for a wander through his own songbook for a change. Armed with a battered guitar, a casiotone and a few pedals Stephen presents songs that mix the likes of Yo La Tengo & Ivor Cutler with broken friendships and human error. The songs are beautiful and the words are horrible.
Opening up this one, we have the York mash up band WEATHER BALLOONS. Shoegaze pioneer and creator of the self-styled “bedroom pop.” Come along early for a taste of this unusual boredom medicine.
8pm start, Saturday 3rd November.
