Ashmolean Late Night is back with their fourth installment, this time featuring ’90s R&B/glitchy electronica AlunaGeorge and support from Birmingham’s tropical-pop troupe Troumaca. Taking place deep in the belly of Britain’s oldest museum, Ashmolean Late Nights, in conjunction with Notting Hill Arts Club, has previously featured sets from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Fixers, Kyla La Grange, Trophy Wife and Spring Offensive. Tickets cost £12 and can be purchased below.
On May 18 Ashmolean Late Nights will follow on from Museums at Night 2012. The Ashmolean will stay open to the public until 9pm on May 18 as part of the Museums at Night 2012 Festival. The museum will be open after hours between 6 and 9pm, with live music, special exhibtions and artistic visual projections filling the grand Ashmolean atrium. After the doors close to the public at 9pm, the Ashmolean Late Night show opens up to ticket holders at half past.
The Notting Hill Arts Club has been championing Troumaca since day one. The leaders of the Birmingham new school bring their soulful, tropically-flavoured, dub-inspired brand of dance to Oxford.
AlunaGeorge is producer George Reid and singer Aluna Francis. A confident pop meeting of ’90s R&B and glitchy electronica, their music has recently been mixed by the best British producers and released via Tri Angle Records.
DJ Mim of Black Cab Sessions plays classic tunes alongside the latest rock, electro, indie and leftfield pop. Black Cab Sessions have impeccable taste: you’ll be in safe hands until 1am.
