Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Sonic Asylum

I have never been to a gig at The Edge. I hope to rectify this on 6 May when Canadian band The Wilderness of Manitoba play the space.  There will be all manner of sonic madness, installations and other loveliness (see picture). Here’s a bit on The Wilderness of Manitoba:

‘It is all to easy to get cynical about those who run about championing things as the greatest this or that since, er…the last one. Yet, every now and then something or someone gets through the cracks, rises above the general morass and makes you sit and take stock, even for just a few minutes. From the moment I hit play on The Wilderness of Manitoba’s latest EP ‘Hymns of Love and Spirits’ I knew I was hooked. There’s a stark understated beauty to it’s 8 tracks, which combine perfectly executed four part harmonies intertwinned with muted banjos, solitary cello and subtle fingerpicked parts.’ ~ thelineofbestfit.com
