Calexico and Iron & Wine

The ninth studio album from Calexico, The Thread That Keeps Us is a timely snapshot of the Arizona-bred band: a family portrait capturing their stylistic variety and unpredictability while still findingsolace in limitless creativity. In bringing the album to life, vocalist/guitarist Joey Burns and drummerJohn Convertino found a spiritual home in unusual surroundings-not in Arizona, but on theNorthern California coast in a home-turned-studio called the Panoramic House. Built from debrisand shipyard-salvaged timber-and dubbed "The Phantom Ship" by the band-the grandiose houseand its edge-of-the-world-like ambience soon made their way into the songs. The specter of California also had a powerful effect: as both dream state and nightmare, its infinite duality ismirrored in the music, giving Calexico a new direction and new edge. With less polish and more gritthan ever before, The Thread That Keeps Us both honors enduring traditions and reveals Calexico's confidence in songwriting, ultimately setting a whole new standard for the band.

As heard on the album's lead single and opening track, the drama of the landscape directly impactedthe making of The Thread That Keeps Us. Driven by sing-song melody and galloping rhythms, "End ofthe World with You" discovers an unlikely romanticism in volatile times. With its lyrics illuminating"Love in the age of the extremes," the track is the perfect intro to an album that endlessly exploresthe contrast between bright and dark, hope and fear.

Working with their longtime engineer Craig Schumacher, Calexico co-produced The Thread ThatKeeps Us, gathering musicians from across the globe to dream up an earthy yet expansive soundspiked with jagged guitar tones and flashes of distortion. "There's a little more chaos and noise inthe mix than what we've done in the past," Burns points out. Although that chaos has much to dowith "where we're at right now as a planet," it also echoes Calexico's dedication to constant experimentation. "Whenever we're writing and we come up with something that feels too familiar, someone will end up saying, 'That feels good, but let's keep going and see what else we canuncover,'" Burns says. "It's been really important to the arc of this band's evolution for us to alwayskeep on trying new things."

Like "End of the World with You," much of The Thread That Keeps Us captures the anxieties and unease of living in tumultuous times. But while the album draws a kinetic energy from all that uncertainty, its lyrics unfold with a literary nuance and sense of setting and character. "Instead of writing straight-up protest songs, I want to tell stories," Burns says. Largely inspired by his wanderings around Northern California during the album's production, the narratives embedded inThe Thread That Keeps Us reflect on displacement, transitory existence, and-in Burns's words-"returning to your home after being gone for some time and seeing how things have changed, andmaybe not in the best way."

As the exact embodiment of that theme, "Thrown to the Wild" delivers one of the most mesmerizing moments on The Thread That Keeps Us. With its gritty but poetic storytelling, the song opens on a downtown bus station late at night, its sleepy rhythms and atmospheric haze intensifyingthe bleakness of the scene (sample lyric: "Home's waiting like a motherless child"). From there,"Thrown to the Wild" slips into a glorious frenzy of hummed harmonies, sprawling guitar lines, andJacob Valenzuela's sorrowful trumpet playing, the effect both hypnotic and jarring. "We wanted thesecond part of the song to just open into this sea of chaos," says Burns, adding: "Sometimes chaos can be a good thing."

Eclectic in sound and feeling, The Thread That Keeps Us also offers the measured fury of "Bridge to Nowhere," the triumphant grooves of the Spanish-sung "Flores y Tamales," the meditative rhythms and jangly guitar riffs of "Another Space." On "The Town & Miss Lorraine," shimmering tones anddelicate mandolin melodies play against the darkly cinematic mood of the lyrics ("Sliding into the sea/With cynicism and rum/Watching Miss Lorraine/Smoking alone with the moon"). The mostbrutal track on The Thread That Keeps Us, "Dead in the Water" builds a thrilling menace from itssnarling guitar riffs, frantic piano rhythms, and piercing lyrics penned for what Burns describes as"the antagonist to the story of the album-a kind of monster" ("Don't try to look away or stop me in my path/I make the law and I decree a new kind of wrath"). And woven throughout The Thread That Keeps Us are a series of instrumental interludes, including the lilting folk of "Unconditional Waltz" and the dreamy psychedelia of "Spinball." "Going into making the album, the only thing Ireally knew for sure was that I wanted there to be moments that felt free and spontaneous-just these moments of no time, no lyrics, no agenda," says Burns.

One of the most stirring tracks on The Thread That Keeps Us, "Girl in the Forest" spins a gentle fable from its near despair over the state of the planet ("Well the world was spinning so fast, nobody took the time"). "That song wouldn't have been written unless I was sitting next to my daughter Twyla,who was humming along as I was making up this melody," says Burns. "For months we tried finishing the lyrics together; I was leading with this idea about environmentalism and protesters inthe forest, and I thought there could be some sort of spirit who appears. And then my daughter told me, 'Yeah, that's cool-but maybe it's just a girl who's friends with all the animals.'"

With "Girl in the Forest," The Thread That Keeps Us displays a sensibility that's long informed Calexico's songwriting: a transcendentalist infatuation with the wild beauty of nature, a fascination deepened during their time at Panoramic House. "Being up there on the mountain and taking walkson the shore, and even swimming in the cold water, we couldn't help but be inspired by nature,"says Convertino. "Our love for our earth, our home, and the future of our children came into focuseven more, giving the inspiration and desire to give back something that's positive and beautiful andlife-affirming."

In that life-affirming spirit, Calexico decided to end The Thread That Keeps Us with a moment of fragile optimism. Described by Burns as "a love song for my kids," the piano-laced, sweetly swaying"Music Box" speaks to preserving dreams in a troubled reality. "Right now we're at the edge of another potential crisis unfolding, and it's haunting every night as you put your kids to sleep," says Burns. "But at the same time, you look into a child's eyes and you see something hopeful, even if they've maybe heard little pieces of what's going on in the news. I think that's pretty much the case with this band: we still have hope, and we're still so excited to be making this music together."

CALEXICO ARE: Joey Burns, John Convertino, Martin Wenk, Jacob Valenzuela, Sergio Mendoza,Jairo Zavala Ruiz, and Scott Colberg.

The Importance Of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being EarnestA Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a play by Oscar Wilde. First performed on 14 February 1895 at the St James's Theatre in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious person to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Some contemporary reviews praised the play's humour and the culmination of Wilde's artistic career, while others were cautious about its lack of social messages. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play.Directed by Mike Poole and produced in conjunction with English Heritage and the support of Battle Abbey School; this production will enjoy the lavish setting of the grounds of the historic Battle Abbey.

The London African Gospel Choir Presents Graceland

After an amazing run of sell out London dates The London African Gospel Choir bring their acclaimed Graceland show to Nell's Jazz and Blues. Thirty years after its release, 17 members of The London African Gospel Choir, backed the LAGC's excellent band, perform their own powerful twist on Paul Simon's 'Graceland' album delivering the Graceland album from start to finish. After coming across a bootleg cassette of South African township music in the early 80s, Paul Simon was totally smitten by the infectious and irresistible rhythms. He travelled to Johannesburg, spending two weeks there, recording with the absolute cream of South African musicians. That epic session, went on to form the basis of Simon's most commercially successful album ever - 'Graceland'. The record became a true global phenomenon, winning Grammys in both 1987 and 88, shifting 5 million copies Stateside and then another 2.5 million copies in the UK alone. The 'Graceland' album spawned the hit singles, 'Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes', 'The Boy in the Bubble' & it's biggest smash - 'You Can Call Me Al.' The richness and harmony of the Choir's rhythmic, evocative and empowering, voices have created an overwhelming musical event, for anyone lucky enough to experience this special performance of Paul Simon's 'Graceland'. The London African Gospel Choir is a collective of African singers, musicians and dancers who focus on African gospel music. They have performed to great acclaim with the likes of Emeli Sande, Mumford and Sons and, Annie Lennox, recorded with Idris Elba, Johnny Legend and others and have headlined at venues such as the O2 Arena

My Friend the Polish Girl

Katie (Emma Friedman-Cohen), a young American documentarian, casts a Polish woman in her film about the life of migrants in London after the Brexit referendum. Her only instruction as director to Alicja (Aneta Piotrowska) is: "Act as if I’m not here." However, as their relationship develops it becomes clear that all is not what it seems in Alicja’s life, and this would-be actor’s interest in both film and Katie deepens. The documentary soon becomes the narrative of a questionable game in which the two women challenge each other. [15]

Royal Ballet Live: Swan Lake

The Royal Ballet revives for the first time the recent new production of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent classical ballet. Production and additional choreography by Liam Scarlett and designs by John Macfarlane.

The Story:- Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night.

Background:- Liam Scarlett’s glorious production of Swan Lake, new in 2018, returns for its first revival. While remaining faithful to the Marius Petipa/Lev Ivanov text, Scarlett’s additional choreography and John Macfarlane’s magnificent designs breathe new life into what is arguably the best-known and most-loved classical ballet. The entire Company shines in this eternal tale of doomed love, a masterpiece filled with iconic moments. Tchaikovsky’s first score for ballet soars with its symphonic sweep and combines perfectly with exquisite choreography from the grand pas de deux of Prince Siegfried and Odile to the swans at the lakeside. An intoxicating mix of spectacle and intimate passion, the overall effect is irresistible.

Cast & Creatives

Choreography:- Liam Scarlett after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov

Music: Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky

Additional choreography:- Frederick Ashton

Production:- Liam Scarlett

Designer:- John Macfarlane

Conductor:- Koen Kessels

The Selecter - 40th Anniversary Tour + DJ Rhoda Dakar

The Selecter have announced their 40th Anniversary Tour in 2019 with Special Guest and DJ Rhoda Dakar. The Selecter will be playing an extended, hit-rich set each night with some added live favourites and surprises. They will also be joined for a few songs by vocalist Rhoda Dakar who will also play a DJ Set to open the nights.

The Selecter is led by their iconic frontwoman Pauline Black and co-fronted by original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson. Pauline Black is one of very few women in the 2-Tone scene - she is often referred to as the Queen of Ska. Not only a crucial figure in the music community, Black is also a published author, gifted actress and a celebrated style icon.

The anarchic passion that fuelled Selecter gigs during the original 2-Tone era is still there, except the pair are more driven than ever. Their confidence is sky-high and they’re also writing the best songs of their career, which is saying something given the enduring popularity of hits like “Three Minute Hero,” “Missing Words,” “Too Much Pressure” and “On My Radio.”

The Selecter continue to release new music, charting new albums in the UK in the last couple of years, proving that 2-Tone is still as relevant and important as it was 40 years ago. In October 2017 The Selecter released studio album Daylight – their most urgent, politically engaged and purely uplifting record since the days of Too Much Pressure and Celebrate The Bullet.

Rhoda Dakar’s career began as lead vocalist with all-woman 2-Tone band The Bodysnatchers who toured with The Selecter. The Bodysnatchers first single was double A-side "Let's Do Rocksteady" with "Ruder Than You". Rhoda also later sang and collaborated with The Specials.

2-Tone was a crucial multi-racial, multi-cultural explosion borne out of Coventry and the Midlands that remade British pop from 1979 onwards. The main bands who pioneered the movement were The Selecter, The Beat, The Specials and Madness. 2019 also sees the 40th anniversary of 2-Tone.

Please note there is a £2 ticket commission fee included in the price of the ticket.

This event is not part of our usual group booking discount.

The price of tickets will increase from £27 to £32 on the night of the show, so make sure to book your tickets in advance!.
