Im looking forward to this all day (and well into the night) celebration of music and creativity at the Hare & Hounds Kings Heath this coming Saturday May 23rd.
Mr Elephant is a delightful collaboration between two lovely people. Marc Reck was recently voted by DJ of the Year Night Times for his consistently exciting and varied sets incoporating everything from party breaks and drum and bass, through classic dance and lately, monkey swing. Pyn Stockman has over ten years experience creating inspiring community art based projects and workshops, many centering around her great skill in mask making.
Together, the two of them have come up with a wonderful looking day of fun, with something to tempt every pallette and age group including FREE WORKSHOPS from 3pm until 7pm in poodle making (out of paper, not actual poodle), mask decorating, drumming, poi, juggling, animation, VJing, beatboxing and music.
If you want to stay around all day but need to pop off for some good food, theres lots of options in York Road alone – Kings (my favourite Indian), Byzantine (Tapas) and Kitchen Garden Cafe (organic) to name but three.
Then it all kicks off from 9pm, but its not all bang, bang, bang, theres a blend of artists featuring lots of live music such as Dub FX (amazing orchestral beatbox) on the live stage, as well as an exciting looking dance stage hosted by Osmosis and featuring Jerome Hill (a bit of legend in the world of techno and breaks).
Sounds like a rather amazing day – I hope you can come down, support it and join in the fun!
