Opaque + Cable Street Collective + DJ Big Daddy
October 23, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - October 24, 2015 @ 2:00 am
6-piece alternative gypsy swing band Opaque are an eclectic and genre-defying act who fuse elements of folk, swing and gypsy into their impassioned and engaging performances. Originally formed in 2000 in Peterborough, UK, their originality and flair has earned them both national and international acclaim.
Hot off the heels of their debut EP ‘The Best of Times’ and from a summer of smashing the festival scene, Cable Street Collective are back, bringing their rhythm-driven, African-influenced sunshine music that they call Carnival Pop.
With an ear for a catchy tune and a stomping beat, they have been tearing up dance floors and festival stages up and down the country over the last 18 months. Their music draws on influences like Congolese Soukous and South African Kwela as well as sounds from closer to home such as Primal Scream, the Stone Roses, Major Lazer, the Beta Band, Tune Yards, and the Happy Mondays.
DJ Big Daddy is a truly eclectic selector, ranging across genres and always keeping the dance floor vibe energetic and lively. Devilishly good!
