BLOOD SPORT: THE FINAL SHOW
After 7 years of incessantly channeling their aggrobeat sound, Blood Sport are calling it a day. This, is their final performance.
Set to play a full set of their trademark blistering sounds along with special guests and friends.
Formed in 2010 over a shared love of Fela Kuti and Talking Heads rooting their influences, the fusion began. Early releases saw them connecting with local Sheffield DIY labels such as The Audacious Art Experiment and Tye Die Tapes which offered up a platform for them to explore their beats. The heady draw of electronic club sounds quickly infected their sound, as they increasingly became configured for clubs. The incorporation of a drum machine drove their rhythmic intensity to new heights, with a constant push-pull between human drummer and machine becoming a hallmark of their emergent style. Matching lacerated guitar shards with polyrhythmic complexity, they have since released on Blast First Petite, Howling Owl and Helena Hauff's Return To Disorder label, as well as touring internationally from Roskilde festival to the legendary sweatbox of Hamburg's Golden Pudel club.
Support comes from Esya and Logs - a super group of sorts, made up of members from Drenge, Wet Nuns, Saif Mode and Seize the Chair.
Don't miss them laying it down live while you can.
Presented by The Audacious Art Experiment.
This is a 14+ event (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult)
