Total Refreshment Centre, London
Tuesday, 15 Sep 2020 – Friday, 25 Sep 2020
19:00 – 00:00
While I record my next album, we will share live music and creative experiences in the room next door. You are invited to both.
2 rooms you are welcome in:
– One where I'm recording my album.
– One with guest hosts performing things (details below)
6–11pm generally, though you will probably catch more of my music if you arrive early
Authenticity, vulnerability, courage, love. Come for the people.
Please buy a ticket, so that we know when you are coming – to help us accommodate a limited audience, for safety and the feeling of safety. We aim to keep numbers below 30 at any one time.
***** TO CATCH THE LIVE ALABASTER DEPLUME RECORDING SESSION EACH NIGHT, ARRIVE BEFORE 8pm *****
TUES 15th SEPTEMBER – SILHOUETTES PROJECT TAKEOVER
TRC crew running a hip hop performance event with young people, who empower and challenge each other, live. They are simply going to do their thing while we record. I am hopeful that we will mix up our groups a bit (that’s why I’ve invited them) – but I do not demand or expect it.
Set up by Root 73 http://www.rootseventythree.com/team.html
IN ALABASTER'S BAND FOR HIS RECORDING TONIGHT (arrive before 8pm): Rozi Plain (guitar); Kwake Bass (kit/synth); Sarathy Korwar (kit); Falle Nioke (voice)
17th – CABBAR “CABBARISTAN” TAKEOVER
A key character in the spectacular band The Turbans, he’ll be bringing together musicians to improvise, I’ve heard there may be a strong Turkish contingent, and that this would be very good for everyone involved.
IN ALABASTER'S BAND FOR HIS RECORDING TONIGHT (arrive before 8pm): Rozi Plain (gtr); Hannah Miller (cello); members of Deep Throat Coir; Tom Herbert (dbl bass); Matt Webb (dbl bass); Falle Nioke (voice); Donna Thompson (voice)
21st – NUHA RUBY RA TAKEOVER?
Nuha Ruby Ra is an astonishing fierce vulnerable punk performance and visual artist. She is assembling a band to do live development of material in Alabaster's style, and will be joined by him in the show. DJs TBA

23rd – CLASSIC PEACH
I think I will take care of this one, and host it and perform the main thing. Donna Thompson will perform a set with musicians. I will invite Falle, also. Maybe others. But I think I’ll do a set myself, and speak to the crowd about what we’re doing maybe. DJs TBA
