Live Preview: The Scholars – An Audioscope Gig

Local organisation Audioscope, have teamed up with the Oxford-based artistic hub, Launch Collective, to present a very special evening at The Old Boot Factory on Saturday 19th May. It all ties in with their new exhibition, The Natural Order Of Things, and as the organizers themselves put it, ‘The show will form part of an immersive installation exploring the psychology of space through subconscious languages and landmarks.

The music side of things more than holds up its end of the quality bargain too. Two of Oxford’s finest songwriters will open proceedings as Phil McMinn showcases some new material as well as the more familiar, from his former band, Winchell Riots; while Richard Walters will be playing some material from his gorgeous new album, Regret Less.

Rome Pays Off (pictured), with members of influential post-rock trio Rothko, will follow before local heroes The Scholars close the evening with their take on atmospheric rock-pop.

Audioscope are committed to raising money for the national homeless charity, Shelter and have raised over £22,000 since 2001.

Tickets are just £5 and all proceedings will go towards Shelter. Click here to purchase tickets.
