T.E.Morris, Lucy Claire and Monsters Build Mean Robots solo set
We are thrilled to bring you a night of beautiful music, headlined by T.E.Morris from Her Name Is Calla!
Tom Morris self released a total of six EP's during 2011, following that output with a full length album in February named 'We Were Animals' on his own label Olynka Records. Since then he has released an art print with an accompanying song-track called 'The Roots Run Deep'.
August 2012 saw a very limited release of Morris's second album entitled 'And You Were The Hunter' amongst a flurry of other eps, mini albums as well as free downloads here and there. The album was released worldwide in June 2013 via Function Records and quickly followed up by the mini album 'The Long Distance Runner.
Tom is currently working on his first novel entitled An Unknown Island that includes two albums with overlapping tracks.
"We Were Animals is confessional, an open statement of private struggles and private sins; it does not hope for redemption or for helpit simply asks to be heard." The Bomber Jacket
"At his best, Morris sounds fragile, brooding and melancholic, his voice haunting. Having an impressive vocal range certainly helps, and he uses it to forge an atmosphere of quiet intensity." Whisperin and Hollerin
"His mind is fully saturated with ideas, something affirmed by his prodigious output" GodisintheTV
Before Tom we are thrilled to introduce you to Lucy Claire.

Opening we are delighted to welcome back Monsters Build Mean Robots for a special solo performance!
Monsters Build Mean Robots make music that is dramatic and dynamic, layered thick with the textures of electronic sounds and guitar loops. Inspired by instrumental post-rockers Godspeed You Black Emperor! and named after a lyric in A Silver Mt. Zion's "Horses in the Sky," the band was originally formed as a side project by members of Court of Hidden Faces and Last Days of Lorca. After releasing their self-titled debut on Nice Weather for Airstrikes Records in 2007, Monsters Build Mean Robots expanded from a traditional lineup to include vocalists, a cellist, and a violinist, and started writing music tailored toward their energetic live shows. In August of 2011 the band released a sprawling five-song follow-up, titled WeShouldHaveDestroyedOurGeneralsNotTheirEnemies. If you like post rock which puts a smile on your face, then you need to see MBMR!
With a Goodsoul DJ set, this will be a night of gorgeous music and soundscapes that you need to be at!
