With a full band line up, Ian Todd will be performing his new album, "Seven Signs of a Soul" in its entirety.
The album is a concoction of immersive experimental art-rock and Neo-psychedelia. Each song represents one of the seven signs of life, expanding into other subjects such as mental wellbeing, stoicism and anti-consumerism.
Hear the album here:
"I don't know what this song reminds me of; but it makes me want to lie down in a darkened room and listen to the Stone Roses" Brody Swain, BBC Music Introducing Coventry & Warwickshire.
"Ian too seems to set himself no false constraints nor be bound by the shackles of genre expectations: he goes where his particular inclination takes him" Andy Holdcroft, Hot Music Live presents.
The show will be crowdfunding for vinyl copies of the new album. There will be merch: phone cases, paintings, previous albums and many more.
Support from Paradise of the Titans. ‘Paradise of the Titans’ (based in Coventry) like to take the audience on an ethereal synth-pop journey (embellished with pastel jumpsuits and dark-matter entities).. The Mermaid EP is like a soundtrack from a supernatural filmscape, in which Singer/Songwriter Alice Weston’s reversed vocals multiply in intricate harmonies (reminiscent of an alien language). Among a catchy buzz of minimalist synth the otherworldly themes range from magic Walkmans, shamanic spells, alien kisses and Mermaids. Drawing inspiration from Kate Bush, Gary Numan and Grimes’ early work, the 80’s inspired drums (rich with reverb) complete the drama.
The EP (available on limited edition glittery cassette tape) coincided with the release of the official music video (a collaboration between director Fraser West of WeTheConspirators, and Apparition Visuals (Alice’s Videography company), where iridescent stage art, home-made tinsel strewn crop tops and mystical orbs give the impression of an Indie Sci-fi cult classic

Flatpack and CineCov present: The Ichi Anime Show
Summing up one of ICHI’s spellbinding performances is a bit of a challenge, but Steve Lamacq did a decent job when he said “What on earth is this? It’s brilliant!”. The Bristol-based Japanese singer-songwriter, instrument-maker and performance artist delivers quite the show, and to say he’s unique is something of an understatement. Taking inspiration for his art from far and wide – a melting-pot of punk, reggae and dub, Henri Salvador, tribal music and old scratchy 78s, and with his trusty sampler never far away, ICHI produces something totally idiosyncratic and entirely new. It’s fun and exciting. He takes the notion of a one-man band to new limits combining his handmade inventions with steel drums, toys and everyday objects all in the space of one brilliant set.
For this special one-off performance Flatpack (known for putting on the brilliantly eclectic Flatpack Festival) have commissioned ICHI to write and perform new music to a selection of classic Japanese animated short films from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Featuring some of the finest short anime films by pioneers such as Osamu Tezuka and Keiichi Tanaami, these psychedelic and offbeat films inspired a whole generation of Japanese animators. Expect to have your mind melted and your senses aroused in what will be a very memorable evening of live music and film.
This live score screening is part of Japan 2021: 100 years of Japanese Cinema, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.It's also being delivered in partnership with CineCov who are turning the City into a Cinema and supporting local film exhibitors during City of Culture. CineCov made possible with support from the BFI using funds from the National Lottery.
This event is for 18+.

Peggy Sue are London-via-Brighton indie duo Rosa Slade and Katy Young. Founded in 2007, the band have released three albums on Wichita Recordings, culminating in 2014's critically acclaimed 'Choir Of Echoes', and toured with the likes of Jack White, Local Natives and First Aid Kit.
After a three year break - during which Slade and Young have been performing with all-female singing group Deep Throat Choir - new single 'Slow Fade' is an apt comeback – a melancholy celebration of patience. Upcoming fourth album sees the band borrowing from the perfectly-constructed pop songs of the 1960s and the understated, noisey guitar experiments of 90s indie bands such as The Breeders and Blur.
With support from local post-punkers RAVENS.

Steve Davis was the most successful professional Snooker player of the 1980’s, now spending his time collecting left field music from around the globe, presenting a monthly radio show with Kravus and cementing his interest in the modular synth as a member of The Utopia Strong.
Michael York is a multi instrumentalist and luthier, working mainly with modular/analogue synths and woodwinds (primarily focusing on bagpipes, reeds and flutes of Europe and the Near East.

By her own admission, Roxanne de Bastion was a “weird kid”. Smiling at the memory today, she recalls, “Being really frustrated with myself around the age of seven or eight and saying to my musician dad… ‘But when am I going to write a song?’ And he would just say, ‘You’ll write a song when you've got something to say.’ Take your time, it's fine.” These words of reassurance are set to be proven prophetic with the release of Roxanne’s second album, You And Me, We Are The Same, a record that sees the now London-based singer-songwriter finding her authentic voice, while channeling the pain of her father’s death last year.
For Roxanne, it’s been an arduous journey to this point, and one that’s required her to keep courage in her convictions in order to succeed. Brought up between Berlin and the West Midlands, she grew up obsessed with The Beatles and Alanis Morissette, and was soon determined to become a musician like her father. To those ends, she left Berlin for London straight from high school and - with no financial support and no contacts in the city - got by balancing hospitality and admin work with the 90-odd solo gigs she played per year across the U.K and Europe. To date, Roxanne has played over 600 gigs, including two USA tours in 2017 and 2018.
Having built a loyal fanbase, her crowd-funded debut, Heirlooms & Hearsay, arrived in 2017, leading to support slots with Lambchop and the Wainwright Sisters and triumphant shows at Glastonbury and the Cambridge Folk Festival. Meanwhile, Roxanne’s remarkably self-sufficient approach was recognised by the FAC (Featured Artists Coalition) who invited her to join its Board Of Directors, advising alongside Imogen Heap, Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien, Fran Healy of Travis and Blur’s Dave Rowntree. Running conferences and workshops –Roxanne started her own artist-led music conference, From Me To You (another nod to The Beatles) in 2015, which has been growing ever since and has included speakers such as Imogen Heap, Stewart Braithwaite, Anne Catherine Davies, Jeremy Pritchard (Everything Everything) and folk artist Sam Lee - to this day, Roxanne continues to take a suitably hands-on approach in the role, as she explains.
“I think it's important, because there's still this misconception of artists being these distraught, difficult people who sit in a room and write songs, and that can't formulate a sentence otherwise. And that's just not what it's like. Plus, there's so much smoke and mirrors [in this industry], it's nice to dispel that a little bit and to really help each other out as artists.”

Warmduscher are a group of miscreants, known only by aliases (Clams Baker Jr, Lightnin’ Jack Everett, Salt Fingers, Quicksand and Dr. Withers aka Little Whiskers). Ardent fans, Iggy Pop and Marc Riley have only gleaming praise to heap on the band, and in return, Warmduscher have blessed them both with immortality.
The band’s live show has left thousands across the UK and Europe desperate for more. During their set at End of the Road Festival 2018, they were accused of inciting a riot and thrown into a giant hole.
They have since emerged and will soon embark on a worldwide tour of France, Switzerland and Italy. Breathe it in before it’s gone
