What have YOU been listening to? I personally hit up three shows in a five day period: Beach House at the Black Cat on Friday might have been the most hyped concert of the week for one of the most hyped bands of the year.
Sunny Day In Glasgow - Ashes Grammar CD (2009) (CD)
They quite easily sold out the Black Cat and packed the Main Stage room full of eager fans. The precious Bachelorette opened, who got a fair bit of audience response, probably due in part to her quiet, cutesy New Zealandic accent. Her set mostly consisted of cleverly looped vocals, guitar strums, and drum machines that made for a well received whole.
Victoria LeGrand and Alex Scalley actually move around on stage and have more energy than their slow, syrupy music might suggest.
Its acoustics are nice and its setup puts the audience just feet away from the performers.
We walked in a little late to just catch Phil and the Osophers play an enjoyable, playful pop set that felt similar to the likes of Vampire Weekend. Although it was a fairly innocuous set, I admit to wanting to hear more from the band, and I hope they had a good time at SXSW where they played just last week.
When A Sunny Day in Glasgow got started, their set was unstoppable.
Their live presence is something to be reckoned with, six band members on stage all doing different things for every song a favorite moment was when Ben Daniels broke out an electric mandolin. Most of the songs they played sounded better than the studio versions, which were already superb recall my naming Ashes Grammar one of the best albums of this past decade.
Passionate Introverts (Dinosaurs) | A Sunny Day in Glasgow
The biggest disappointment of the show was the lack of an encore; they played through a rather short set and could have easily extended it to better please the crowd, but that was about their only shortcoming.
The family knew real poverty and the sadness that came with it. Material possession were few. When, aged ten, McKenzie was evacuated to Dorset, he did not even own a bag and had to carry his pyjamas in a pillow-case sealed with tape. While stationed in Germany, he met his future wife, Shelly, who is Dutch and Catholic and inspired his conversion to that faith.
Ten years later, he and his family moved to Scotland, where he headed up the new photography department at Duncan of Jordanstone. That year,also saw him embark upon his Gorbals Children studyinspired by the paintings of Joan Eardley; the show toured inmarking the start of a run of work and exhibitions in which McKenzie was established as a soulful and sympathetic chronicler of the working class.
In the early s, there came a fork in the road. McKenzie had spent the last years of the previous decade travelling within Ireland, taking photographs — titled Hibernian Images — which contrasted the peaceful rural life in the Republic with the sectarian violence of the North. For a show of this work in Aberdeen, he submitted a catalogue statement which he claimed was then altered by the gallery to remove text which the curators seem to have felt appeared sympathetic to the idea of armed struggle against the British state.
You have no right to do this. Between andhe turned part of his home into a gallery which could be viewed by appointment, and in there was a retrospective in Glasgow, but after that — nothing.
This feels, looking back, like an act of self-sabotage, even a sort of martyrdom.
He felt that he was suffering, in a sense, for his artistic beliefs. You pick up a camera and shoot. We can choose to be frustrated that he wrote stories and then hid them away in a drawer, or we can be grateful that the few books that do exist are exquisite. I feel very positive about Joe. But my observation is that he could have done more. Despite the aftershocks of defeat in WWI and the loss of empire, Germany managed to produced the Bauhaus art school, innovative film-makers such as Fritz Lang, challenging theatre, and the cabaret scene.
Berlin even rivalled Paris as the art capital of the world. It is a period Duke Special finds particularly inspiring. There were collaborations between philosophy, classical music, and art that were very exciting. The collaboration between the arts, such as Brecht collaborating with Kurt Weill on theatre shows and songs, really appealed to me. Yet in that period there were the thunderclouds coming [the rise of the Nazis] that were not foreseen.Confessions of a passionate introvert: Brian Little at TEDxOxbridge
Duke was interested in collaborating with other artists and using inspiration from other art forms to explore new means of presenting his music.
