291 Live Music
East End Music Hall twisted for the new centurys

a fresh take on another lost scene...
The Burlesque movement fused together musical innovation with visual stimulation, against a backdrop of enlightened thought. Inspired by this groundbreaking movement, Vaudeville challenges the standard live format and brings bands from the re-energised New Wave, Art Punk and Garage Rock scenes to a unique environment - expect burlesque strips and innovative performances going head to head with live music in amongst installations, video walls, DJ's and little environmental surprises.
This month will see The Gin Palace and The Cribs carve their own deep notch on Vaudeville's already lauded bedpost. Rose Meres provides a seductive take on Egyptian Belly dancing whilst the company In Bed all Day, engage in a space odyssey through electroclash.
Vaudeville residents Divo and Black Mark present structured, eclectic sets between acts: music features The Detroit Cobras, the Gang of Four, Talking Heads, The Cramps, JSBX, Royal Trux, Bowie, Television, The White Stripes, 80's Matchboxs

Art and musicians' collectives 8i8 and Utrophia team up to bring you a night of experimental film and music, featuring live laptop performances and projections - an engaging audio-visual mix.
Coryate¹s music is evocative of subdued memories and filmic narrative. Subtle and patient, the dense atmosphere creeps up on you with startling emotional effect. Hologram will be playing a set of inimitable melodic electronica, concentrating on the composition of warm interweaving tones and digital rhythms, with a tinge of 80s nostalgia and retro-futurist vision. im¹s sights are set firmly on the glossy sheen of the near future, presenting inspired forays into choppy beats and sine wave melodies, hinting at the syncopated structures of jazz, two step and drum & bass. Alkaliner sifts through the pop charts and radiowaves, sampling, processing and rearranging with no regard for copyright or volume restrictions. His performances question the notion of the composer in the quick-fix world of mp3 and manufactured pop. Precise excursions into sonic experimentation are Helen Bac's forte - a schizophrenic journey from the hi-fidelity spatial aesthetics of algorithmic, glitchy soundscapes to hip-hop and back again. Orphan revisits the repetitive rhythms and discordant melodies of techno and twists the form to create a machinic and organic atmosphere. Patten performs an improvised set, using realtime DSP software, acoustic instruments and various objects to create dense, shuffling, soundscapes, sources include; portable record player, electric fan, drum machine, acoustic guitar, glockenspiel and melodica. Grovesnor presents electronica beats that are friendly and quirky, while his melodies are beautifully simple - how come someone hasn't written these tunes already?
Thursday 28th August 7pm-2am
