Announcing a special evening of Bankside performances curated by The Tapeworm, as part of the Merge Festival.
London Town’s finest cassette-only label, The Tapeworm, presents its third annual event in the Capital. Exemplary music and much excitement is to be expected from a line-up of the label’s mates.
Mr Ken Hollings, a writer of note, shall be reading his text from the first Bookworm publication, to be launched on the same night. Sweden’s BJNilsen will be flying in and making a splendid noise for you all. A second Swede, CM von Hausswolff (he’s a King, dontchaknow…) will share a stage with Touch’s Mike Harding, in a reading of Edgar Allen Poe like none before… Cult vs. occult – former Medicine Head man Peter Hope-Evans and illustrator Savage Pencil will whip up a dark blue storm. Mr Pencil’s fine drawings shall also be on display. Hopping on the bus from Elephant & Castle is Zerocrop and his band; pop perfection from a local lad. And finally, a London eye – video installation by Vicki Bennett, aka People Like Us.
Exhibition featuring work by Savage Pencil and Vicki Bennett Friday 21st – Sunday 23rd October 12 – 6pm
