Thursday July 6th saw an Ochre Evening take place at The Louisiana in Bristol. Applecraft headlined as an eight-piece that included an array of instruments from hurdy gurdy to trombone to double bass! Don Mandarin & Mike Mooney were joined by an array of musicians that included Patrick from Strangelove on rhythm guitar and backing vocals. The set was mostly in the vibe of the current album 'The Shining City On The Hill' with the tempo being picked up for the last couple of numbers of the set . A great atmosphere was evident throughout the evening and thanks to all who turned up. Support was provided by The Land of Nod (who performed a set consisting mainly of tracks from there forthcoming September album release 'Timeless Point') and 90º South (who performed a twenty minute set titled 'A Distant Memory Of Home: Music For Adelie Penguin'). Watch out for Ochre evenings taking place in the late Autumn which are currently being arranged.
