Nexus, Intertain, State of the Eye Recordings and Pie and Vinyl are delighted to announce:
Karin Park – Live at the Square Tower on Wednesday 12th September 2012.
In June, we had the pleasure of welcoming Karin to Pie and Vinyl for what was a beautiful, intimate in-store performance, which left the audience spellbound. The Scandinavian’s profile has since been raised to incredible heights. Karin has collaborated with Swarovski and DKNY, and will provide main support to the godfather of Synthpop, Gary Numan in Reading on September 5th.
The show, within the medieval surroundings of Old Portsmouth’s Square Tower will be sure to be a performance like no other. Built in 1494 during the reign of Henry VIII, it is one of the earliest stone fortifications within the city. Karin will this time be performing with a full band, and is sure to invoke the spirits of past saints and sinners with her haunting, ethereal sound.

Support for the evening has been curated by Pie and Vinyl and will be provided by some of Portsmouth’s finest. Curxes bring with them the perfect compliment to Karin’s sound, consisting of minor keys and chromatic chord structures. Haunting, powerful vocals melt over stabbing synths and a stark percussive framework, laced with nouvelle vague guitar sensibilities. This unique, twilight sound is dramatic pop at its best.
Also on the bill are genial upstarts Kinky Boot Beasts. Drawing on an eclectic mix of influences, the four piece only agree on two common themes: The French electronic space duo Air and Queens Of The Stone Age. With ideas that are poles apart, Kinky Boot Beasts fashion a maelstrom of Prog, Punk and Psychedelic both on record and live.
Tickets are priced at £8.00 and are available from Pie and Vinyl and www.seetickets.com. Tickets are extremely limited so please purchase now to avoid disappointment.
