CRISP&CLASSY Live at October Gallery
Saturday, 10th October 2020
Doors open at 5:30pm, performance 6:30pm – 9:30pm. £10
For the third gig in October Gallery’s socially-distanced live music series, LGBTQ and feminist pop duo CRISP&CLASSY will be taking the stage on Saturday, 10th October, 2020.

CRISP&CLASSY is a musical love affair, comprised of producer Kat Knix and singer-songwriter Plushy. The duo bring sexual liberation and self-acceptance to the UK electronic pop music scene through their graphic lyrics and 90s flavours. Their sound is a combination of sassy pop, soul and 90's diva-inspired melodies to hip hop beats.

Kat Knix made her first release - a remix of The Knife's 'Without You My Life Would Be Boring’ in May 2014 via Brille Records, before releasing her debut single on Hybris Records in 2016. Meanwhile, Plushy was hitting Chicago and New York radio with the bass line remix of his debut single ‘Darkness’ in 2015.

Following the release of their second single ‘Blessed’ on 15th May 2020 and a string of remixes on 14th August 2020, CRISP&CLASSY will perform at October Gallery on Saturday, 10th October, 2020.
Brazen Thieves Live at October Gallery
Saturday, 3rd October, 2020
Doors 17:30, 18:30 start £10 £15/£12 (conc)
October Gallery is pleased to announce a night of live music performed by Brazen Thieves. This event is part of a new series of socially-distanced gigs to support live music acts during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Daughters of respected 60s folk guitarist Clive Woolf, Laura and Rebecca Woolf have explored every musical avenue, from playing in rock bands to DJing dance music, before dedicating themselves to folk music. As a result of discovering previously unheard recordings, the sisters are dedicating their musical endeavours to bringing the sounds of their father’s songs to a new audience. Laura and Rebecca Woolf, together with Lucy Gaster, formed Brazen Thieves.

Their distinctive arrangements and a cappella offerings explore music from their London roots to New England’s Sacred Harp tradition, the latter of which stems from late 18th century sacred a cappella choral music.

Before the 2020 lockdown, Brazen Thieves were performing at folk clubs and festivals around the country such as Tooting Folk and The Goose Is Out, where they supported Jackie Oates.

Following the release of their latest EP on 23rd May 2020 via Bandcamp (featuring guest guitarist Mark Fraser and Stick in the Wheel’s Ian Carter), Brazen Thieves will be performing at October Gallery on Saturday, 3rd October, 2020 for an evening of folk merriment.
S.A.A.R.A Live at October Gallery
Saturday, 12th September, 2020
Doors 19:00, 19:30 start £15/£12 (conc)
October Gallery is pleased to introduce a new series of socially-distanced gigs commencing this September, 2020, to support live music acts during the Covid-19 pandemic. We are delighted to have the eclectic sounds of London-based S.A.A.R.A starting things off.

S.A.A.R.A creates refreshingly original tracks that pay homage to her influences: Kate Bush, Björk, Grace Jones, Gil Scot-Heron and Fela Kuti.

Described as “orchestral funk” (Ollie Winiberg, BBC Introducing) S.A.A.R.A weaves hypnotic bass lines around big beats, synth hooks and woodwind riffs before floating her distinctive vocals through the mix. With roots in indie, disco, punk, funk, EDM and afrobeat, the result is club tracks performed live, reclaiming the dance floor from the DJ.

Following the debut single release ‘Grace Jones’ on August 30th, join S.A.A.R.A for an extended set of her songs - old and new - at October Gallery on Saturday, 12th October, 2020. Doors open at 7pm, with the gig on between 7.30pm and 9pm, with a 15-minute interval. Drinks will be served afterwards.
Tunde Jegede / Sunara Begum / Yumino Seki
Saturday, 14th March, 2020.
Doors 19:00, 19:30 start £15 / £12 students £15/£12 (conc)

A powerful interdisciplinary piece by Tunde Jegede, Sunara Began and Yumino Seki, exploring notions of home, identity, migration and memory.

 Where do we come from? Where is our home? Where are we going? Who Am I is an interdisciplinary performance about identity, notions of home, migration and memory using movement, spoken word, film and music.

Through a myriad of ways, the piece confronts the landscape of our physical and metaphysical reality as well as the mythical nuances of our past.

 Who Am I is a new theatre production created by Sunara Begum and Tunde Jegede in collaboration with Yumino Seki.

Duration: 90 minutes + interval.
