The first Scenery Chewer event curated by someone else other than me sees the young Kimberly Liu stepping up to the plate and organising her first ever art show. It promises to be wild and exotic, with work being exhibited and sold over the course of the following week, so if you are feeling flush, get your wallet out, and buy someone something lush.
Or just come along to the launch party on November the 6th and get joyous! It will be at The Others in Stoke Newington
Hero of Switzerland
We have three musical debuts from three soon-to-be Scenery Chewer favourites.
Liam Butler will open proceedings with his heart-snapping lyrics and tender guitar, and, we hope, one or two Daniel Johnston covers, as well as his own gorgeous songs.
Then, we have the return of the elusive genius of Ylid. If you have never heard of Ylid, let alone knew that he had been away, and are dying to ask him why he went away and why he has come back, or if you don't really care but would still like to make conversation with someone/anyone, come down and ask him. But only after you pick your jaws up off the floor.
And top top it all off, we have Say Yes. All you need to know is that it's a Jacob Mayfield project. And it will kill you. With beauty.
DJ Pete Scott will attempt to hold these three titans together like really sticky glue, but really sticky glue that will also make you dance like a deranged monkey.
And if that wasn't enough, poetry troupe Press Free Press will be on stage bringing the literary rock and roll fun, iambic pentameter to your skulls.
The suggested donation on the door of £5 will all go towards the work of Youth Music (www.youthmusic.org.uk). When I say "suggested donation", I say that loosely. Scenery Chewer does what it does to raise funds for worthy causes so please be generous, be kind, and rewind.
