Curate’s Review

Angry Men in Suits. Pete Ashton, for it is he, reviews the recent Curate’s Egg gig and sings the praises of Al Hutchins.

There are a number of promoters in the city who are doing interesting things but the evenings that Al curates (and it is a curatorship rather then mere promotion) always intrigue and impress. You never know quite how it’s going to pan out and there’s a tangible sense of unease, like you’re on a journey somewhere on terms that you’re not sure you want to sign up for. This is what live music should be live – dangerous, exciting and mindblowing in equal measures.
