John Doran (Quietus) + Andy Kirkpatrick + The Patron Saints
AN ENGLISH TRIP – Andy Kirkpatrick, Arabrot & John Doran words/music live at Hull Adelphi
Writer and editor of the Quietus John Doran (VICE/BBC/the Guardian) is celebrating the publication of his first book – Jolly Lad – by going on a 31 date reading tour called An English Trip. He is teaming up with other writers, poets, film makers, musicians and DJs over the course of a month and putting on nights in prisons, churches, libraries, record shops, book stores, village halls, warehouses and cinemas and his musical support on every night of the tour is Kjetil Nernes aka Arabrot, the Norwegian noise rock musician.
Tonight Doran, a former Hull resident, is in conversation with one of the world’s leading winter alpinists – Hull mountaineer and author Andy Kirkpatrick, before giving some readings set to music by Kjetil Nernes (Norwegian punk musician Arabrot).
NB: THIS IS AN EARLY EVENING EVENT. It will kick off at 7pm and be over by 9pm but you are more than welcome to hang around for live music by The Patron Saints and DJs playing until late.
£4 on the door.
