This show is part of Illuminations, a series of uniquely curated music and arts events taking place between 27th October - 7th November.
The intense vibrations that sound from Seattle’s Shabazz Palaces are back and set to hit hard for a special Illuminations performance. An act with a truly ambitious and highly visual show, the new album was recently launched with a laser-infused performance in an Observatory in their native Seattle. Three years on from the hip-hop duos acclaimed debut album ‘Black Up’ is the delivery of a dizzyingly brilliant second LP. ‘Lese Majesty’ is the new sonic move from Shabazz Palaces and will be released 28th July on Sub Pop. This 7-suite, 18-track treasure trove of new black wave and ghetto psychedelics is smooth, laid back and stays true to their experimental roots. This show sees a special warehouse-based set at The Laundry in London Fields, November 4th.
OPEN MIKE EAGLE
"One of LA’s smartest young voices" says the LA Times...which the artist suspects, may just be a covert way of saying LA is dumb. "Open" Mike Eagle wouldn't terribly mind, being born and raised in Chicago where the painful winters and his uppity grandparents kept him inside as a youth. He spent his formative years watching alternative music happen on MTV and hoping to one day be able to audition for the Native Tongues.
Tickets for this show are SOLD OUT.
