HAIKU SALUT CHRISTMAS LAMP SHOW – 15 & 16 December, 8pm

Back at St John’s for the third (and fourth!)  time, Haiku Salut are a unique proposition, sweeping between all-manner of genres but never losing the soft focus of the inspired instrumentals that provide their back-bone. Rising from minimal, glitchy pop songs into moments of distinct and awe-inspiring grandiosity, the band match the intensity of their recorded sound with a mightily fetching, and suitably dramatic live show.

If you’ve not seen the lamp show before, you’re in for a dazzling, exhilarating treat. The trio perform with a stageful of vintage lamps which are programmed to flash, fade and flicker in time to the music – and result is utterly spellbinding, like watching electronica come to life.

Lamp Show Praise

“A collection of vintage lamps of varying sizes is scattered around the front of the church and flick on and off in time to the music. How it’s done leaves most of the audience scratching their heads and trying to work it all out as they file out of the church an hour or so later.” – Music OMH
“A bulb bursts into life, followed by another, then another across the room. As parts are introduced the lamps become a flutter of activity, illuminating fretboards, cymbals and touchpads.” – London in Stereo

Support on Friday 15th December is White Town. Twenty years ago Jyoti Mishra scored a worldwide number one hit with “Your Woman”, and he’s been making inspiring, heartstopping music ever since. This is a rare London date for Jyoti and his first ever show in a church!
