What They Could Do: Escape!

A monthly series of events taking place at Escape Bar and Art, Herne Hill.

Escape! February 2009

Thursday 19th February, 8pm - 1am / FREE


a + b = c | a collaboration with beatabet

Beatabet are a Brighton-based artist collective after our own hearts, emerging from a broad range of disciplines and coming together regularly to perform, create, compose and experiment. Their events are known for their unusual settings, their diverse line-ups and their refreshing balance between the experimental and the more accessible, managing to maintain a great sense of fun throughout.

We're presenting February's Escape night in conjunction with their finest artists and acts, in anticipation of a major collaboration that we have planned for March 2009.

AK/DK (Beatabet)
"2 humans, 2 drumkits, 2 synths, messynoiseynoise"

The Beatabet Band (Beatabet)
Born out of the annual Beatafarm Residencies in France, The Beatabet Band are a 10 piece ensemble who perform selected works from the an extensive back catalogue penned by various memebers of the collective.

The Capsized Smiles (WTCD)
The Capsized Smiles have travelled across sea, land and outer space, returning to present to you their cruel cabinet of curiosities: B-movie tales of horror, woe and wild wild joy.
