Live Preview: Ashmolean Late Nights

After the success of last time, the Ashmolean Museum are once again throwing open their historic doors to music lovers for the second instalment in their Late Nights series. Taking place with the monumental setting of Britain’s oldest museum, the Notting Hill Arts Club presents an evening including sets from Oxford’s own Spring Offensive and London’s on-the-rise electronic duo Visions Of Trees. Taking place this Friday (5th August), the evening event begins at 6pm.

Beginning in the museum’s picturesque rooftop restaurant, Portobello Road born and bred Jazz songstress Annie B kicks off proceedings from 6pm. From there, those luckily enough to have nabbed a ticket will be led down into the museums specially transformed Vault to watch live sets from Oxford’s rising indie-rock stars Spring Offensive. The last time we saw them live they headlined June’s BBC Oxford Introducing night at the Oxford o2 Academy and their literate and intricate guitar indie had the crowd in raptures.

Another band very much on the ascendancy is London’s hazy electronic outfit Visions Of Trees. The band have been quickly rising to prominence thanks to their contemporary take on modern electro/trance. Surrounded by the spirits of the Ashmolean museum’s past, Visions Of Trees have found the perfect setting for their otherworldly sound and ghostly vocals.

The evening continues late into the night with further DJ sets courtesy of MIM (Black Cab Sessions DJs), Rita Maia (Talking At Me, Badmood) + Juice Box DJs (Adam Callan + Becky Tong) who all come with the Notting Hills Arts Club prestigious stamp of approval.
