Astronauts in Orbit
Acclaimed Arctic Circle music promoter present Space in this Place – an immersive evening of space themed sounds which will permeate the twisting red steel structure. At 76m and 80m high, the two observation decks will be transformed in an incredible outpost of new music and musicians with influences ranging from Solaris to Sun Ra. It’s a perfect setting for Ninja Tune’s DJ Food who was last seen performing his album The Search Engine at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. More live music will come courtesy of the cascading, creaking acoustic guitar, bleeps and breathy vocal harmonies of Astronauts and synth-folk drone-ballad band Transept. Not forgetting Manchester’s one man cosmic construct Paddy Steer who welcomes you to the event at ground control. All this whilst enjoying mesmerising views as the summer sun sets across London. Drinks and light meals will be freshly cooked and available on the night.Get Tickets Here

‘Lions And Tigers And Bears’ exhibition
Nick Abrahams' upcoming 'Lions And Tigers And Bears' single is released on June 27th, and is accompanied by an exhibition at The Horse Hospital, London, which runs from Saturday 28th June until Saturday 19th July. The exhibition features photographs, installation pieces and artworks all stemming from the wonder of the British countryside. Like the single, it is inspired by Abrahams' short film 'Ekki Mukk', his collaboration with acclaimed Icelandic rockers Sigur Ros. The title makes reference to the forest that Dorothy finds herself in 'The Wizard Of Oz', which points us in the direction of the mix of fantasy, fairytale, politics and magic that the show is filled with. Everyone who attends the show will get a free Nick Abrahams fortune cookie, which is very nice, isn't it? Other events are planned to coincide with the single launch, so stay tuned for further information. http://www.thehorsehospital.com http://www.nicholasabrahams.com
