$AU$AGE$, Roman, DROOL, Barry + David Shrigley DJ set
Fri 24 Aug
$AU$AGE$ return to Paper Dress for a night brought to you by God Himself!
With continual mental health issues within the music industry, $AU$AGE$ and their good friends, ROMAN, DROOL & BARRY, are here to put on a night in support of this cause with all profits going to the charity Mind.
Alongside the donated entrance fee of £5, on sale they’ll be limited edition screen printed T-shirts and posters of the f**king awesome poster design by artist DAVID SHRIGLEY, who too will be joining the night on the decks, so make sure you bring some cash and snap up some merch!
Info on the night’s entertainment –
$AU$AGE$ – Fronted by Andy Knowles (Franz Ferdinand, Johnny Marr & The Healers, The Fiery Furnaces), $AU$AGE$ are a four piece with clear influences from post-punk, art rock to brit pop.
However, their energetic performances and songs that rarely break 2-minutes soon give an impression that $AU$AGE$ don’t take genres, or anything for that matter, too seriously. Good guys, good music. Who cares? I mean, they called themselves $AU$AGE$.
LISTEN TO THEIR E.P. ROCK GODS HERE –
ROMAN – Roman is a technicolour creature formed in New York city in the blistering hot summer of 1982. Bowie discovering Eno’s synthesisers with with tutelage by Bryan Ferry. With added Iggy.
This guy will make you dance.
DROOL – are an evocative London alt-rock outfit who deftly mix late 80’s alt-rock with 60’s melodic structures. Described as “An expansive rock sound that wouldn’t be out of place in a gothic cathedral with acid trip coloured stain glass windows”, by The Zine magazine, there are not to be missed.
DAVID SHRIGLEY – is an artist best known for his distinctive drawing style and works that make satirical comments on everyday situations and human interactions. In September 2016, his ‘Really Good’ sculpture was unveiled in Trafalgar Square, for the Fourth Plinth Commission and currently has an on-going presentation in the Gallery at Sketch café here in London.
Shrigley was also a Turner Prize nominee in 2013, following his major mid-career retrospective at the Hayward Gallery, London entitled ‘Brain Activity’.
Basically…..he’s not doing to bad for himself and is a total dude, so say hello to him!
Be there or be square………and no one wants to be square.
