My First Gig: Thomas Truax
Saturday 05 September 2015 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
£5 adult / £2 child
Don’t miss the wonderfully unique Thomas Truax as he comes to The Tin at the Coal Vaults for another ‘My First Gig’. Following on from Thomas’ set will be Diddy Disco – so bring your dancing booties!
“There’s a fine line between the unique and the insane, and it’s a line which Thomas Truax (pronounced troo-aks) straddles with his chin held high and ‘ The Hornicator ‘ firmly glued to his left ear. His collection of home made instruments look as though plucked straight from the mind of Tim Burton and are combined with loop pedals, guitars and lashings of imagination to create one of the most unusual and entertaining live shows you will ever see.” Splendid magazine calls him “one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you’ve never heard of…an exceptional talent, unique and resistant to comparison, yet fairly accessible even to casual listeners.”
The Guardian: “When he performs, it is a spectacle – the originality and seeming impossibility of what he does is much of the appeal.”
