A Message from Hammer & Tongue

Hello pop pickers,

Thank you to the hundreds of people who turned out for The John Hegley / Inflatable Buddha gig on Friday - I hope you enjoyed it as much as the Hammer & Tongue team did!

This Sunday sees an exciting event in the form of Slounge. The fine purveys of original live music extravaganzas Oxford Contemporary Music have teamed up with Hammer & Tongue to produce a multi-media event that promises to float the boat of even the most jaded gig goer. Music / art / poetry and organic food will be served up at everybodies favorite fair trade cafe The Vaults and Gardens (Radcliffe Square opposite the Radcliffe Camera).

On the bill is the much touted winsome folk-punk harpist Serafina Steer
"blurring cartoonish fantasy with kitchen-sink reality" (BBC) and if that's not enough a rare solo poetry performance from Inflatable Buddha frontman Steve Larkin "funny and biting, like a pump-action powerhouse on-stage" Edmonton Journal, Canada. There will also be short films from Oxford Film and Video Makers and a DJ.

This is the shape of things to come. The future is a multi-media. The future is slounge! Be there. Come for dinner for £12 from 7pm or come without dinner for £4 from 8pm.

That's all for now folks.

The Hammer & Tongue Team
