di / by Charismatic Megafauna

Per il loro debutto in Italia, Charismatic Megafauna esegue un live set di batteria punk proveniente dall’album Semi-Regular, oltre a delle composizioni più recenti. Conosciuta per i suoi costumi originali, proiezioni visive e energia anti-establishment, la band trova la sua più vibrante realizzazione suonando dal vivo, interagendo con il pubblico e l’ambiente.
Offrendo un potente mix di girl-gang chants, offensive sincopate di batteria e bizzarrie mutanti del sintetizzatore, Charismatic Megafauna rifrange il suo femminismo attraverso una lente assurda. Questa è party music per persone con una coscienza politica.

Charismatic Megafauna sono Jenny Moore, Georgia Twigg e Susannah Worth, un dance-punk trio di Londra, UK. Dal 2014 hanno suonato in prati, festival, appartamenti, magazzini, musei, gallerie, pub e scantinati. Hanno pubblicato l’EP Maxi Brief registrato live alla Tate Modern nel 2016, e il loro album di debutto Semi Regular nel 2018.

ALMA’S CLUB

Nel 2016 abbiamo inaugurato la Club Session; un programma musicale minuto che indagava la musica accentuandone la componente performativa. L’anno scorso, all’interno del Club, c’era John the Housband, la band di Alma Söderberg e dei suoi amici, che apriva la serata con un ukulele e cantando “Here we are, John the Housband, we’d like to sing songs for you, but we’re a bit shy to do, we’ve travelled from far, to bring sunshine in your heart, can I go home with you?” ed è stato subito chiarissimo che sì, doveva assolutamente venire a casa con noi e per ampliare la nostra casa le abbiamo chiesto di curare il programma musicale di quest’anno. E così la Club Session è diventata l’Alma’s Club: “to bring sunshine in your heart”.

For their Italian debut, Charismatic Megafauna perform a live set of drum- punk-powered missives from album Semi-Regular as well as more recent compositions. Known for their original costumes, visual projections and anti-establishment energy, the band finds its most vibrant realisation playing live, in the interaction of band, space and audience.
Offering a potent mix of girl-gang chants, syncopated drum offensives and mutant synth freakouts, Charismatic Megafauna refract their feminisms through an absurdist lens. This is party music for politically-minded people.

Charismatic Megafauna is Jenny Moore, Georgia Twigg and Susannah Worth, a dance-punk trio from London, UK. They’ve been playing in fields, festivals, apartments, warehouses, museums, galleries, pubs and basements since 2014. They released the Maxi Brief EP recorded live at Tate Modern in 2016, and their debut album Semi Regular in 2018.

ALMA’S CLUB

In 2016, we’ve initiated a Club Session; a tiny music programme investigating music by accentuating its performative feature. Last year, within the Club, there was John the Housband -Alma Söderberg and her friends’ band- who opened the evening with a ukulele and singing “Here we are, John the Housband, we’d like to sing songs for you, but we’re a bit shy to do, we’ve travelled from far, to bring sunshine in your heart, can I go home with you?” and it was immediately clear that yes, she absolutely had to come home with us. Thus, to expand our house we’ve asked her to curate this year music programme. So the Club Session has become the Alma’s Club: “to bring sunshine in your heart”.
