The month’s selection is our Edgiest Bohemian, she’s more Punk-yet girly/quirky and oh so rebellious!  Michelle has championed the Punk Arena in Hereford with Rich Lovell by way of their Live Music Nights aptly named “The Underground Revolution.”

Co-founder Rich has a manifesto for the music nights they organize: “no cliques, no mainstream, just cool music played with passion.”

Their next events are listed below. I seriously love the posters they come up with events, some of which are designed by local artists.

               

Be sure to visit the Facebook page to get updates on events and photos of the live acts and as always click like on Facebook.

Cuadra & Lovell have also paired up online to write about all things Indiein Herefordshire on the site HerefordCityCentric.com

From retail to music, to exhibitions, food and beyond their website gives you the edgiest…

Gig review: Bands “Pablo Alto” and “A Hundred Suns”

What an awesome review of our Underground Revolution night by Catherine Vaughan …she is a doll I tell ya. All cute and innocent.

Boho.Blog

I show up to this Punk gig as a Poster Girl for “Square.” All white shirt collar poking through black sweater and casual trousers. It’s freezing and I’ve got a chunky winter coat on and a cute chic red bag from Hooty’s vintage store. The weather dictated my semi-preppy and rather dull attire. I accidentally encounter the star of the night Claire Perkins and huddle around as the first band Pablo Alto plays. I attempt to dance though it’s more like arm flapping. Claire is lovely, quiet and does not appear to be dancing along. She has pink dreadlocks very Gwen Stefani in “Ex-Girlfriend” music video. Unbeknownst to me she would be performing as lead singer in her band “A Hundred Suns”….

Pablo Alto are great with Hendrix-esque guitar pieces. I would see them again. The set is colourful and enthralls you into a psychedelic euphoria of guitar blazing. I’m…

The Dark Arts by Blackfriars Tattoo on Maylord Street

It hasn’t been long since Jon Tagart Harper established Blackfriars Tattoo on Maylord Street in the Hereford city centre, and already he has had two guest, tattooists and bookings to keep him awake for days and still never catch up.  He is just that good and I proudly boast one of his tattoos myself.

There is an interest generating in his black work style geared towards the darker arts, which Jon does very well.  It is like you walked into an ancient cave, and came across Viking or warmongering, ritualistic tribal symbols you really don’t want to mess with.  It is what comes to my mind any…which is a busy mind that runs away with itself often. Admitting that I love these tattoos won’t send me to hell will it?

So if you are in search of ideas and you fall into the category of tormented souls in search of such art, this man has the calibre.  Here are a few examples of his recent and epic works.

Jon also has a wonderful understanding of colour, a passion for Traditional tattoos and is an excellent artist which is demonstrated in this not so dark piece.

To book in with Jon Harper email him at blackfriarstattoo@gmail.com.

Catherine Vaughan – Hereford’s Millenial Poet and Author

Catherine Vaughan Book & Poetry Reading at De Koffie Pot March 3, 2016

Arriving slightly late to the reading by Catherine Vaughan,  I can’t help but feel anxious that I missed out on of some of this lady poets carefully crafted outpouring, and the whimsical and energetic approach in which she passionately read through her material.

I arrived to an aptly poetic atmosphere; the room was beautifully lit with candles illuminating the oak beams on the ceiling, and the tables almost completely packed with humans keenly hanging on to every word. Catherine had reeled them in, I would be next. De Koffie Pot holds many events in this room on the first floor of the converted stables nestled alongside the River Wye. A charming setting difficult to parallel in the city unless you boast any sort of river front property.

Reading from her poetry book ‘The Quarter Life Crisis Poet: A Collection of Poems on Pain, Heartbreak and Defiance by a Twenty-Something, Catherine took  us on a journey deep into the wounded and broken relationships that so many of us can relate to. I couldn’t help but feel like a voyeur, with a greedy desire to soak up the sadness each time she turned a page to read the next poem.

It was a lovely night and was glad to experience the reading in such a warm and well, “poetic” atmosphere.

All in all, her first reading was a success and we wish her plenty more success in the future. Find links to all of Catherine Vaughans books here.
