Kaleidoscope – Midnight Rodeo / The Crystal Teardrop / Seas Of Mirth

2 November 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 3 November 2023 @ 12:30 am

*** LIVE MUSIC ***
// Midnight Rodeo //
Nottingham formed psychedelic art-pop quintet Midnight Rodeo
broke out in 2022 with 3 singles on Brighton’s Fat Cat Records.
accompanied by a relentless touring schedule around the UK,
with trips to Europe, two sold-out hometown shows and prodigious slots at festivals such as The Great Escape, Dot to Dot & Kendal Calling.
Their sound is unique in it’s combination of a powerful groove laden rhythm section, alongside jangly guitars, theremin-esque synths, booming organs all held together with the ethereal,
honeyed vocals of Maddy Chamberlain. Krauty & latin-esque grooves are Juxtaposed with powerful psych-pop garage floor-fillers, hypnotic and chaotic in equal measure.
“A multi-faceted piece of woozy surf pop, the Morricone guitars slice through those heavenly vocals, while the heavyweight percussior surges to its grand finale.” Clash
“sharp-shootin’ psych-pop” Clash
“Spongy cinematic trip..wispy surf rock” So Young
“A modern day psych-pop classic” Under The Radar
“The kind of sounds that Midnight Rodeo magic up here are so
elegantly formed and tastefully conceived – like a gorgeous fusion of Los Bitchos and La Luz – it could easily have sprung from the hippy Kingdoms of California, Melbourne, or mainland Europe.” Hard of Hearing

// The Crystal Teardrop //
Inspired by a mutual passion for the sights, sounds and creative experimentation of the mid to late 1960s, The Crystal Teardrop, with its unique blend of garage rock, psychedelia and acid folk, is forming. The band’s music demonstrates an innate affection for all things 1966 with influences ranging from classic artists such as The Beatles and The Kinks to West Coast favourites including The Great Society, Love and The Byrds. Rarer cuts from the Nuggets and Pebbles canon are also deeply embedded within the band’s psyche. Alexandra Rose (Disques Vérité, 23rd Tangent) and Stuart Gray (Biff Bang Pow) both regularly DJ vinyl collections sourced from across the globe while Leon Jones’ previous kaleidoscopic exploits with Alfa 9 add an extra dimension to the band dynamic.

// Seas Of Mirth //
Nottingham based Seas Of Mirth are a high-energy genre-bending festival band with a trippy and interactive deep-sea twist. Fronted by the two founding guitarists Al Judders and C Ball Paul, their daringly inventive new album ‘Kriller’ covers everything from wonky disco funk to psychey prog-folk to worldly dance beats. On stage, the visual element is full on with UV lights, flamboyant white costumes and LED sea creatures on stage and in the crowd! It’s one big sensory experience, with a generous spoonful of humour. Having performed at major festivals including Glastonbury, Boomtown and Nozstock this summer, the band are ready to embark on their largest tour to date. This is an opportunity that anyone with an adventurous pair of ears must simply take the plunge on, and dive into the immersive and peculiar world of Mirth…
