An Evening With: Electric Octopus & Unbelievable Lake
Another 'Evening With' event takes place at the Menagerie on November 16, when Electric Octopusreturn for a night of long-form jams in their last appearance for many months. The musical cabal will no doubt collaborate with a few heads at the show. They've got over a full working week of recorded output which has incredibly amassed streaming figures in the millions. This year alone, they've been on a month-long European tour, played Portugal's Sonic Blast Festival. Blending funk, blues, psychedelia, and the unfuckwithable alchemy of Tyrell Black, Dale Hughes & Guy Hetherington, they're Northern Ireland's foremost jam band. Check out 'Driving Under The Influence of Jams'.
Kraut-influenced psych/space rock trio Unbelievable Lake play their first Derry show at Bennigan's on October 26. Melding the experimental psychedelia of early Pink Floyd with the confrontation, sludge & drone of Swans, Sleep & Om, you can check out some rough demos here.
