Haiku Salut Lamp Show
Plus Astronauts
Saturday October 11th
St John on Bethnal Green, 200 Cambridge Heath Road, London E2 9PA, 8pm, £8 advance ticket, £10 on the door, advance tickets http://www.wegottickets.com/event/287072

Almost a year to the day that Haiku Salut brought their spellbinding lamp show to the atmospheric surroundings of St John on Bethnal Green, the trio return to the church for another magical evening of dancing lamps and instrumental wonderment. They've spent most of the year working on their second album, which is now getting very close to completion. They've also written a book of haikus, "Japanese Poems Steal Brains" - illustrated by Katrine Brosnan, the artist responsible for the beautiful sleeve of their debut album, "Tricolore" - which will be on sale for the first time at this show.

The lamp show features twenty or so vintage lamps which are programmed to flash, fade and flicker in time to the music. The band have done this show three times now, and each performance was mesmerising, joyous, emotional and quite unique, like watching electronica come alive.

See the lamp show in action at St John on Bethnal Green here:

 

"A collection of vintage lamps of varying sizes is scattered around the front of the church and flick on and off in time to the music. How it’s done leaves most of the audience scratching their heads and trying to work it all out as they file out of the church an hour or so later, but during the show they’re happy to sit in awe as a chap with a Mac taps away, leading the light orchestra." - Music OMH

"The audience were spellbound, not only by the lighting (we can proudly declare that we love lamp) but by the ease with which the band members were able to switch between countless instruments and even share them without missing a beat. Grade 1 listed building St John on Bethnal Green provided a serene and at times, slightly eerie backdrop. If the fact that we were being sold G&T in a can by a member of the church community group didn’t give away that this wasn’t your average gig, the merchandise stand which included items such as ‘Bladerunner inspired origami unicorn pins in matchboxes’ certainly did." - London On The Inside

Support comes from Astronauts, a duo from east London who feature Dan Carney, previously of alt-folkers Dark Captain. Their debut single, "Skydive", a gently menacing mish-mash of creaking acoustic guitar, bleeps, electronic beats and breathy vocal harmonies, was declared to be "something of a marvel" by NME, and debut album, "Hollow Ponds", was released recently to similar acclaim.
