Music and art has often go hand in hand; Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’s album sleeve, The Velvet Underground’s creative ties to Andy Warhol, Animal Collective at The Guggenheim and, more obviously, art-rock. The Ashmolean, the world’s oldest university museum, may not currently have a reputation for hosting contemporary music events, but this Friday the choirs and the orchestras will step to one side and let the youngsters through.
On May 6th, The Ashmolean Museum, The Onassis Programme & Oxford Playhouse and The Notting Hill Arts Club present an evening of live entertainment between the hours of 6.30pm and 1am. Music and dance performances will occur throughout the evening alongside artefacts in the museum’s famous galleries. From 10pm, three hundred lucky guests will be invited downstairs to revel in a night of music from some of London and Oxford’s rising stars in music, including our very own Trophy Wife.
The evening will feature performances from ambitious pop star in waiting Kyla La Grange and, as previously mentioned, Oxford’s very own rising stars of dark and arty indie-rock Trophy Wife. The night will also feature a DJ set from Black Discs (Elliot Sumner, otherwise known as I Blame Coco, and Age Salajoe).
