BLOWBACK MAGAZINE PRESENTS…
Five artists showcased in the magazine will be brought together from all over the UK for the first event and introduced to a city they rarely show in. They include graffiti artists, photographers and illustrators: Sal Jeffries, Eight Bit, Tom Sloan, Sascha Scott and Glen Anderson. Despite not having celebrity status they all appeal to the critical sensitivities of Blowback.
The evening’s musical programming will be equally diverse and will include downtempo musicians, VJs and electronic bands. In short, artists with whom the editors feel a kinship because they’re all pushing the envelope in their medium, independently spirited and just damn exciting! They include the Leisure Allstars, Nizlopi, Temposhark, Unabombers and Eclectic Method.
The evening will be divided into two halves. Doors will open for to a private view at 7pm then live bands and DJs will raise the tempo after 9pm with performances open to the public until 12.30am.
2005 for Blowback is about diversifying further, promoting the artists and designers outside the magazine, through events and exhibitions. There are no trends to be followed, no jumping on any bandwagons, it’s simple. We want to bring you artists we believe in, who share our passion, enthusiasm and bloody mindedness, from all round the UK, from Exeter to Edinburgh.
