Author & Punisher, Lingua Ignota, Riotmiloo

An incredible display of innovation from three artists from around the world.

Author & Punisher – Former mechanical engineer and sculptor Tristan Shone tours his latest album Beastland, out on Relapse Records, creating aggressive industrial, metal, drone and doom using his self-made machines.

Lingua Ignota – Musician, composer, artist and survivor are just a few words you can use to describe Kristin Hayter. Performing under the name Lingua Ignota, she creates a live show which has been unanimously described as an exorcism. Her mix of choral, black metal, industrial, classical and doom metal makes for an indescribable genera.

Riotmiloo – An energetic live experience, Riotmiloo is the project of the singer of garage-punk-riotgrrrl project Venom Seeds. Encapsulating the vocals, screams and protest of women’s real life stories, her haunting and powerful vocals create a cathartic and hypnotic rhythm and noise experience. Often found performing live with producer Eva|3, the integration of post-industrial bleakness with riotous punk fury is an experience to behold.

ACCESSIBILITY:
- The venue is up three flights of 10-11 steps. The steps are shallow and wide, with a railing along the walls
- There are unisex toilets on the first floor, separated ones on the ground floor
