People Like Us Play AV Festival 2010

Live Performance at Star and Shadow (NewcastleGateshead)
Saturday 13th March 2010

from 9:00pm until 2:00am
Vicki Bennett has co-curated an evening with AV Festival entitled

Nothing is New, Everything Is Permitted.

The title is a pun on the phrase ‘Nothing is True, Everything is Permitted’, famously quoted by William S Burroughs, who helped popularise cut-up culture. This incredible evening includes live performances by artists, musicians and poets who have creatively dissected, recycled and quoted. Including: Genre Collage the new live audio-visual set from People Like Us that collages film genres using well-known feature films; live improviser Gwilly Edmondez who uses voice, tapes, decks and samples; debut performance of Café Carbon by The Gluts (Gina Birch, Kaffe Matthews, Hayley Newman) and whirlwind wizard of the ivories Felix Kubin. With DO or DIY Radio and other visual delights.

Other highlights of the festival that we recommend (which are separate events to the above) are appearances by Rick Prelinger, Craig Baldwin, and Kenneth Anger. Separately, we might add!
