BLACKOUT is a series of music events based on a completely novel idea. The audiences are kept in the dark. Live performances by exciting acts will take place in complete darkness, and the bands’ identities are never revealed. This unique run of gigs is the result of collaboration between eclectic promoters EYOE and Harrier and Zinnerwell, AKA young artist Sam Potter, lately of Late Of The Pier. For BLACKOUT audiences, the sensory distortion of total darkness forces a complete focus on the subtleties of sound. For the artists, absolute anonymity creates an opportunity to perform and experiment free from expectations and preconceptions.
The music event, “Blackout”, is tonight and the 16th of June 2011 at The Apiary, 458 Hackney Road, London E2 9EG.
