Blacksand go down to the woods...

Outdoor Equinox performance by London's subterranean soundscapers

Nick Franglen and Charles Casey aka Blacksand will mark Autumnal Equinox with a rare outdoor performance in a wood somewhere in North London at approximately 5am on Sunday 21 September. The improvisational duo, who create music by feeding two guitars through a mash of FX boxes, have aquired a specially adapted ship's battery allowing them to create music anywhere anytime. The wood will be their latest in an ongoing search for inspiring spaces to perform in. Email for location details. Limited spaces.
