HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Fri 15 - Haiku Salut + White Town at St John On Bethnal Green
Two years after they brought their wondrous lamp show to London for a glorious night at the Westminster Reference Library and three years since they staged the lamp show at St John On Bethnal Green church, Haiku Salut return for what is bound to be a magical night - a Christmas Lamp Show! If you've not seen the lamp show before, you're in for an exhilarating treat. The trio perform with a stageful of vintage lamps which are programmed to flash, fade and flicker in time to the music - and the result is utterly spellbinding, like watching electronica come to life. Support comes from White Town, who's playing a very rare date in London.
