Prinz Friedrich + The Bohemianauts + DJ Jon Bongly
November 25, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - November 26, 2016 @ 2:00 am£5 – £8
Finally! From the UK, Prinz Friedrich are Europe’s only coherent response to the likes of Tom Waits & other Economic disasters. Well, if you discount their devil-may-care drink binges in Central Europe. Forged on the underground scenes of Britain & Europe, these dudes have seen and done some weird shit already. Self-described as “Indy Vaudeville
A bohemianaut is one who travels through uncharted spaces towards some notion of “bohemia”, and The Bohemianauts are a mutable combo of such travellers, playing and singing as they go.
These guys are delightfully twisted band of gypsy music-makers whose sounds would fit in perfectly at an old ramshackle circus. The Bohemianauts have a unique stage presence reminiscent of Gypsy vaudeville, with elements of ‘bastard cabaret and songs of unrequited dread’ thrown in for good measure.
With Tom Baker on accordion, Raf Lijtman on guitar, Laurence Eliott-Potter on piano, Nick Doyne-Ditmas on double bass, and a variety of other musicians coming and going depending on the performance, expect a fantastical and all-round eccentric take on old gypsy songwriting.
A Magic Garden regular and with good reason, DJ Jon Bongly specialises in feelgood beats and retro remix – phenomenal sounds from electro swing, pulsing techno & wriggling tropical rhythms.
The venue is open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-10pm. Happy Hour is 5-7pm!
