On the subject of the Red Bull Music Academy, why let the Big Smoke hog all the fun?
This weekend there are a host of events going on in Bristol that shift the event's ethos to a smaller locale - Metropolis on Cheltenham Road (handily about five minutes from where CBOB calls home). On Saturday 27th they host a day of workshops, lectures and live music from 2:30 - 5:00pm -- blurb stolen from the RBMA's website:
"After a good night’s sleep, Metropolis will again be the host for a session of workshops and performances. The Bug his newest project on Hyperdub, King Midas Sound. Reprazent rhymeslinger Dynamite MC hosts an MC production workshop. Pee Wee Ellis sits down on the couch to talk about life with James Brown. Henry Bainbridge of Dubstudio, mastering engineer for everybody from High Contrast to Ramadanman, runs a vinyl cutting demo. Minotaur Shock will showcase his unique self-developed live performance technique. And Innervisions honcho and 4/4 hypnotist supremo Dixon shares tips and knowledge about succeeding in independent music, joined by local luminaries Ginz and Yolanda of Phantom Limb."
And even bigger, if at all possible, that evening sees them take over Motion with Futureboogie, putting on Theo Parrish, Dixon, Appleblim, Headhunter, King Midas Sound, Peverelist and many more. And it's only six quid.
See you in the skatepark.
