Following the success of his residency at the Galerie Chappe in Paris back in May (Google it if you missed it) Jarvis Cocker & his fellow musicians will install themselves in the Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, London EC2A 3PQ for 5 days in November.
Happening between Monday 9th November and Wednesday 11th November, the exhibition will run from 12pm to 6pm each day and entry will be free. The event will culminate in a concert at 9pm on the 11th.
Tickets for the concert are available exclusively here and are priced at £30.
As in Paris, during the course of the 5 days they will be inviting members of the public to participate in live musical improvisations (participants must bring their own instruments – amplification provided), they will provide live musical accompaniment to various exercise classes (including Yoga & hopefully, Aerobics) & they will be inviting guest artists to come & perform with them at various times during the residency.
The whole event will be webcast via www.jarviscocker.net and you may wish to peruse the “manifesto” that accompanied the Parisian version to get a flavour of what it’s all about.
