Session 58: Can – 'Tago Mago'
Colchester Arts Centre, Church Street

The first album to feature their most iconic line-up, Can’s 3rd album builds upon the experimental, funk, jazz and improv ideas of their earlier releases. Then they chop it up, re-combine it, jam over it, splice in alternate takes, and then shove it on top of a rock solid groove.

Much like the Velvet Underground’s debut four years earlier, Tago Mago is an album that redefined the entire concept of how music could be performed and recorded for all who heard it. A true cult classic.

—–

As usual we’ll follow the album with our usual 7″ session. Bring along a single of your choice to spin after the main session. This can be anything you like, for any reason – the more out there the better.

It’s about meeting fellow music lovers, talking about the great records of the past and predicting upcoming future classics.

The bar’s open throughout and we’re selling Veggie Chilli for just £3 a bowl.

£3 Admission.
Doors open 12pm, session starts at 12.30pm.

Shappi Khorsandi: Skittish Warrior, Confessions Of A Club Comic
Colchester Arts Centre, Church Street

Comedian, author, cultural icon and – most recently – idiot who agreed to be tortured on ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!’, Shappi Khorsandi is a woman of many parts. But live comedy is where she’s in her element, and now – after her spell in the jungle – she sets out for the more welcoming destination of Colchester.

A brand new show packed full of sharp-tongued gags and cultural observation, this is Shappi’s warts and all journey through the 90s comedy scene, to breaking through on telly and then letting it all slip away.

As heard on Radio 4, read in two warmly-received books, and seen sleeping in a hammock.

“She has plenty to say, and says it with pointedness and potency” Guardian

“Has the crowd in the palm of her hand’ The List

“Makes live comedy thrilling” Evening Standard

Tickets £15 / £13 concessions.
Doors open 7.30pm, show starts 8pm
