This event takes place at Oval Space, London
Two of London’s most exciting live bands perform a ‘simultaneous sonic poem’ in a ferocious battle of improv, noise and poetry.
Savages’s elemental post-punk clashes with Bo Ningen’s psych-noise, as the two bands perform head to head on a U-shaped stage. A unique experiment inspired by the Dadaist concept of simultaneous poetry – when poems were being recited at the same time in different languages, adding up to a powerful overall effect.
‘Something you just have to see for yourself’ 8.7/10 Pitchfork on Savages
‘Cosmic shock and awe’ ★★★★ Guardian on Bo Ningen
