Crow Versus Crow presents...
A-Sun Amissa | TEN | Trouble With Books
Friday 23rd March 2012
Bar Up, Halifax
£4 otd / £3 concs/adv
We're very pleased to have been asked to set up a gig in Halifax for A-Sun-Amissa, ahead of the release of their Desperate In Her Heavy Sleep record on Gizeh Records. They will be joined by fellow Leedsers TEN, whom we've been unsuccessfully trying to set up a gig for, for what is now far, far too long. Trouble With Books, who came to our attention via the brilliant Don't Drop The Dumbells project, will complete the line-up.
Sonically, the night is at the opposite end of the noise-scale to the previous night we held at Bar Up, but that sits just nicely with us...sound is sound after all, and all... and as lovers of live music and residents of Halifax(ish) we're incredibly excited about seeing music of this kind and quality in our home town.
There will be an A5 zine/3"CDr made specially for, and available only at, this gig, featuring Crow Versus Crow visual art work, an illustration by Sean Wars of Trouble With Books, a live recording by Trouble With Books and A-Sun Amissa and Ten remixing a track of each others. It has been printed by Footprints of Leeds, and is being sold at cost price. (Photographs to follow...)
This gig is set up on the same principle, and for the same reasons, as all previous Crow Versus Crow events at Bar Up - entry fee is as little as possible (£4 on the door, unless you are unemployed or can't afford the full amount for socio-economic reasons in which case it is £3...unless that's too much, then just come along and ask us and we'll work something out. £3 advance e-tickets are available here). All money taken on the door will be split between the bands, without Crow Versus Crow taking anything.
