Cultural Quarter Lates: April
|When and where?||
Friday 27th April 5.00pm - 8.00pm
|What does it cost?||
The second Cultural Quarter Lates event will feature a unique one off performance by drum duo Rattle in Leicester Print Workshop’s Exhibition Space as part of Cultural Quarter Lates.
RATTLE focus almost exclusively on drums and more drums, beneath a delicate overlay of vocal harmonies and percussive effects. Formed by Katharine Eira Brown (also of Kogumaza) and Theresa Wrigley (also of Fists), Rattle began as an experiment in crafting rich songs and melody using drums and voice alone. Their music weaves and intertwines post-punk, minimalism and experimental rock, through off-kilter rhythms, patterns and counter melodies.
They released their debut album, Rattle in August 2016 via Upset The Rhythm and I Own You Records. This led to invitations to support Animal Collective on a short UK tour and The Julie Ruin on their European tour. The band have just completed their second album, due for release in September 2018, and will join Protomartyr on their UK tour in May 2018, with a stop at Leicester’s Handmade Festival.
Rattle will perform two sets of new material over the course of the evening, with live sound by Mark Spivey.
A one off opportunity to view our Aspects of Print exhibition with a live rhythmical soundtrack. This event is FREE. Rattle will perform two 30 mins sets, from 6pm – 6.30pm & 7pm -7.30pm.
Cultural Quarter Lates
Expect exhibitions to be accompanied by pop up bars, special events and performances, specially selected as part of this collaboration between the gallery teams at Two Queens Gallery, Leicester Print Workshop, Phoenix and the LCB Depot.
The event is set to provide audiences who come to enjoy the growing night time economy of the Cultural Quarter, an alternative artistic offering, whilst still providing you with the opportunity to have a drink and socialise.
Visitors will be able to take in a minimum of 3 art exhibitions each month, all within a short walking distance of each other. There are also plans to host special events featuring live performance, music and guest food vendors.
