Hello, we are playing at Cafe Kino, Bristol on Friday 24th Feb at 8pm.

Here is the link to the event on Facebook

The HERE & NOW are musician and filmmaker Lisa Marr (of legendary 90's Canadian band CUB) and filmmaker, activist and drummer Paolo Davanzo (the 'Polyester Prince' responsible for founding and co-running with Lisa the ridiculously inspiring Echo Park Film Center - a nonprofit community microcinema in the Echo Park neighbourhood of Los Angeles.)
They travel the world sharing movies and music with the masses, playing songs from Lisa's amazing back catalogue of songs with bands such as CUB, BUCK, the BEARDS, the LISA MARR EXPERIMENT and the HERE & NOW, and screening an eclectic selection of short and experimental films either made or produced at the Echo Park Film Center from 2001 2011.
...the band from Bristol who are very super-excited to be playing this show with their friends from the HERE & NOW.
There will no doubt be some audio/visual collaboration on the night, with BUCKY previewing songs from their forthcoming 'WOMEN, LADIES and GIRLS sing the BUCKY SONGBOOK' project.
DJing by JOFF
Records playing w/ live drawing!
