Play Dead and Pie & Vinyl have joined together, as two independent small creative businesses in Southsea, to work on an exciting and original project. They chose a theme that would play to their strengths and passion for art and music.
Play Dead have chosen 33+ artists (from various backgrounds) to customise old or second-hand vinyl records and make something new and visually exciting with them. These are now being displayed at the Play Dead Gallery (131 Highland Road PO4 9EY), and a handful shown at Pie & Vinyl (61 Castle Road PO5 3AY), where they will remain throughout the month of July.
Opening Night: Friday 15th July 5pm – late
On this evening, Play Dead will be opening the show, and you will be able to see all the artwork for the first time, enjoy some free booze and a short live acoustic set.
The After Party will take place at Southsea’s Drift Bar (78 Palmerston Road PO5 3PT), where Pie & Vinyl will be hosting live music by Spectres. Find out more here.
Hangover: Saturday 16th July 10am – 5pm
On the Saturday, we would encourage you to pop along to Pie & Vinyl to sample the Limited Edition ‘Play Dead Pie’, mash and peas… You won’t be disappointed.
Play Dead Gallery will also be open for Tattoos, Creative Fun, and music by a vinyl only DJ.
Artists involved include:
Mimic, Samo, Lex, Ooberla, Julian Kimmings, Kazland, M-One, My Dog Sighs, Stu Linfield, Midge, Los Dave, Wooden Beard, Lou Bliss, and many more…
