Clinic Presents: Romance w/ Tubelord
Is Romance in the 21st Century dead? Well, in an artistic sense, it might not be. The 3-course meal collective, Clinic, once more presents an evening of artistic, poetic and musical (not literally a musical) wining-and-dining, as they collaborate with old friends Tubelord on the 27th of January. Clinic have been responsible for a plethora of poetry readings, exhibitions, workshops, gigs and publications, which includes two anthologies. Conceived in 2005, Tubelord have released several EPs, 2 albums and have collaborated heavily with Clinic in the past three years, with founder Sean Parker himself producing and directing one of their videos.
Clinic will be launching a pamphlet, consisting of expressly commissioned poems and illustrations in response to songs from Tubelord’s second studio album, Romance, released on UK label Pink Mist. Also suitably titled Romance, the pamphlet will feature poems from established and emerging writers, such as Sophie Collins, Charlotte Geater and David Nash, as well as creations from a handful of artists, including Mint’s very own Kyle Platts, Hannah Bagshaw, Rob-Hope Johnstone and Sean Roy Parker.
Occurring for the final time at the Amersham Arms in New Cross, Romance marks the end of an era for Clinic, which launched there back in 2008 and fast became an integral part of the culture of alternative south east London. This event promises an extensive menu of the highest quality, sparing no creative expense, with live music from Tubelord, playing the only London show of their UK tour, supported by Olympians and an exclusive performance from Samuel Deschamps, the front man of La Shark. Completing the artistic trifecta, will be readings from Emily Berry, Wolfboy, Kate Kilalea, Sophie Collins, Jack Underwood, clinic’s Sam Buchan-Watts and Rachael Allen, plus an exhibition of artwork from the pamphlet.
Mint Magazine will be down in full force equipped with our brand new camera team filming the event for our soon to be launched MintTV site.
So come raise a glass to Clinic and wish them well on their way to pastures new.
