There’s a fair bit on this Friday night. Eastside Projects sees the launch of CHILD, a three-screen video commission and film set installation in the main gallery by William Pope.L, the ‘Friendliest Black Artist in America’. Pope.L and his crew have been very busy over the past week filming in places such as The Spotted Dog, Eastside Projects and Alcester Street so there should be some familiar sights in the film. (Especially for me, as they ended up filming in my flat on Monday but that’s by the by.)
Friday is also when the Espirito Brum festival fun kicks off with a launch event at The Edge, Cheapside at 4pm-10pm, featuring a screening of the film Music Tree and live performances from Wanderson Lopez, Bohdan Piasecki, Paul Murphy and Goodnight Lenin. When The Edge closes at 10pm, it’s time to head over to Club PST for World’s Apart Together and enjoy the ‘finest proponents of dub, live dubstep, breaks and electronic goodness’.
Friday night is just the start of a weekend jam-packed full of fantastic Brazilian and Brummie goodness – check out the Espirito Brum website to find out what’s on!
