When: Sat., Dec. 6, 9 p.m. 2014
After twenty years with Tracey Thorn in the best-selling alternative duo Everything But The Girl, and 10 as international DJ and label boss of acclaimed electronic label Buzzin’ Fly, this year saw Ben Watt return to his earliest folk-jazz roots with his first solo album for thirty-one years. Entitled Hendra, it follows his 1983 cult classic North Marine Drive, and claimed the award for ‘Best ‘Difficult’ Second Album’ at the recent AIM (Association of Independent Music) Awards 2014 in London, fending off albums by Anna Calvi and Blood Orange. Decorated with an array of four and five-star reviews on release, it features collaborations with former Suede guitarist Bernard Butler, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour and producer Ewan Pearson. This year has seen him tour with different sized line-ups but on this night, he’ll play solo acoustic and electric.
Doors open at 8 p.m., show starts at 9.
