Save Event: The Grubby Mitts concert

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Rare London gig to mark the end of Andy Holden and Peter Holden’s Natural Selection exhibition (produced by Artangel) with support from special guests Mira Calix and Bob Stanley (St Etienne) DJ set.


The Grubby Mitts will explore one of the exhibition’s central themes — collecting — through a selection of compositions combining spoken word, objects, and music. Central to the show will be a theatrical 'unboxing' of Holden’s late grandmother's collection of ceramic cats to a live soundtrack, this extended piece will weave a narrative through which the various cats are introduced. The programme will also feature a new composition built from transcriptions of birdsong played on tuned-percussion and a host of older Grubby Mitts songs reinterpreted by a new and expanded line up.
