t webEmpty Shop HQ is a community venue, but every now and then we use the space to programme our own events. Our gig arm, Seagull & Circle, present four carefully curated gigs which are equal part music to social. These gigs aim to further expose Durham as one of the most interesting places in the region when it comes to an eclectic output of contemporary culture, in this case, showcasing some of the best bands regionally, nationally and internationally.

The third in the series welcomes Taupe for their first gig at Empty Shop HQ along side Mat Riviere.

 

 

 

 

Taupe (Newcastle)

Taupe are a Newcastle upon Tyne based trio specializing in razor-sharp polyrhythmic play, exploratory improvisation and raw, high energy live performance.

The group’s sound is built of influences drawing from free jazz and math metal to hip-hop grooves and post-bop, with a healthy dollop of skronk, all navigated down a path that seeks to blur the line between carefully constructed rhythmic compositions and explosive group improvisation.

Mat Riviere (London)

Support comes in the form of London
songwriter and sound-manipulator Matt Riviere, described variously as ‘genius bleak-pop’, ‘lo-fi glitch’ and ‘art-rock’. It’s safe to say he creates beautiful music of alarming depth.
