Wednesday June 23rd: Waldo’s Gift Reworks: Floating Points - Crush
Witness the rebirth of the band’s legendary Reworks series, with a reimagining of Floating Points’ seminal 2019 release ‘Crush’ in its entirety. Described by The Guardian as ‘beauty out of chaos’ it is the perfect work for Waldo’s Gift to lend their unique brand of unhinged energy to. Originally planned for March 2020 this show has been a long time coming and should not be missed. Socially distanced, tickets sold in tables of 6.

Waldo’s Gift is the result of three like-minded musicians that have been given the time and space to let their sound naturally take shape, allowing them to hone in on a true sonic representation of themselves, both as individual players and together as a three-piece. Formed in Bristol in 2017, the band (consisting of Alun Elliot-Williams on guitar, Harry Stoneham on bass and James Vine on drums) were drawn together by the offer of a weekly residency at The Gallimaufry, a venue providing a space for the most boundary pushing parts of the city’s music scene.

In addition to playing their own original compositions, improvised live on the spot, the band also reimagined tracks by some of the artists that influenced their sound the most. Particularly memorable renditions include reworking select pieces from ABBA’s back catalogue and a night dedicated to the music of Aphex Twin, the latter of which resulted in the release of a studio cover of ‘Vordhosbn’, premiered by Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC Radio 6 Music and lead to Gilles Peterson dubbing them 2020 Ones to Watch.

Their latest release The Hut (Black Acre), was greeted with rapturous critical acclaim and extensive support on BBC Radio 6 Music, catapulting the band from being vanguards of Bristol’s music scene to one of the most exciting new bands in the UK.

The event is hosted by the one and only MĀDŁY.

Tables to be sold in groups of 6, socially distanced in accordance with Government guidelines. Delicious food available before the event at the Pipe & Lovers (book a table here https://www.breakingbreadbristol.co.uk/pipe-and-lovers-reservations).
