See some music & words!

Music & Words – Masquerade
Thom Byles, Jess Green, Roundhouse Poets & Sugardrum
Thursday 9th May, 7pm doors
The Gallery Café, 21 Old Ford Road, Bethnal Green, E2 9PL
£5 advance, £6 on the door

Another evening of music and words from Booked and And So She Thinks in the beautiful Gallery Café. Featuring rhythmic acoustic from Thom Byles, Sugardrum and his soothing glacial strums, the Liverpool based poet Jess Green making the mundane magnificent through words, and the talents of the Roundhouse Poetry Collective, our guest partner for this event.

They say that every song has already been written, and every word already said. The theme of this evening is Masquerade – pretending to be someone else, taking something you think you know and presenting it in a new way, reinterpreting all that has been before. Think the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra playing Oasis, Shakespeare via Twitter, Cat Power sung by a man, or Jay-Z in iambic pentameter. With a mix of original content from the artists and their own takes on art that you thought you know, the night will be one to delight.

If you want to know what you can be expecting from the artists and their original writing, take a listen to the little Soundcloud set here.
Tickets are available from We Got Tickets, and are only £5 in advance, £6 on the door. The Gallery Café will be serving food and snacks throughout, so come down and grab some of their delicious vegan fare.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
