the Strypes headlining at Harvey’s Depot

Posted by carlotta on Wednesday June 4th, 2014 at 7:08am

Last Saturday I covered a wonderful day of music and entertainment where The Strypes were headlining down at the old Harvey’s Depot. The day was a fundraiser to help the people who had lost their artwork and livelihoods in the fire that burnt the Phoenix Theatre to the ground. I was keen to go back to the Depot because I had not been back since I had used the colourful murals as a backdrop for some portraits a few months ago.

The line-up included comedy, theatre, puppetry and some great live music. The musical sets consisted of some brilliant home-grown talent, a local and international legend singing up a political storm (Arthur Brown, accompanied by Sam Walker), a gifted new Indie band who have just had a single released on Radio One (Secret Company), Chris Difford (co-founder of Squeeze) singing his iconic ‘Up the Junction’ and the hugely talented and unstoppable force of The Strypes. The setting was an old warehouse, the stage was tiny and hung with red velvet curtains and the crowd was an intimate couple hundred of enthusiastic, happy people. More photos from this shoot can be found here.
