It's An Inside Job on Saturday 3rd August 2019
Bringing a brand new piece 'It's An Inside Job' to Birkenhead for the first time, Roy and Toria Garbutt, will be bringing their linguistic prowess to the brightest building this side of the river, the Bloom Building.
Roy wanders his world and reluctantly engages with people that most would cross the road to avoid. He survives on Earl Grey tea, opiate painkillers and a few large scoops (equal measure) of love, tolerance and vulnerability. He believes fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth. It’s dark, it’s funny and it’s scummy. Names have been changed to protect the guilty
Toria's words are silk javelins. Frank explorations of self, outpourings of a joyfully pained brain. She means it. Cos she's lived it. Take a stroll through her mind and allow yourself to ride the Knottingley odyssey of authenticity. You might like it.
The night is going to be a bit different. We will be deep diving into spoken word and bringing the almighty Yammerer to bring their Psychedelic Punk to the stage.
As always with gigs that go on at Bloom. EVERY PENNY RAISED FROM THE GIG WILL GO DIRECTLY TOWARDS THE FRONTLINE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES OF THE ODC, WHICH IS THE ANCHOR TENANT OF BLOOM BUILDING – INCLUDING ALL TAKINGS FROM THE BAR.
This is pretty key, in that not only is the night going to a great standalone event, it will also act as a fantastic opportunity as an example of the arts with a social conscience.
Included in the ticket there will be food from Shawarma Llama. Bringing middle eastern bites with Shawarma and Tagine available.
Music Genres: Spoken Word
