ME5 Launch Line Up Confirmed for 29th/30th November

ME5 collage

The weekend of the 29th and 30th November promises to be a good one. The ME5 album (our fifth annual download compilation of Medway music) is in the can and ready for digital release at midnight on Friday 29th November, all 58 tracks of it, and the Just Giving page for donations to Young Minds is under construction. For reasons we’ll come to in a minute, we thought a five year run was worth celebrating with a more than one event, so think of the weekend as a mini-festival.

On Friday 29th November you will have two choices: You can come to the Nag’s Head in Rochester to see Broken Banjo, The Flying Isaacs and The Flowing, or you can go to St Mary’s Social Club in Gillingham to hear acoustic sets by Theatre Royal and Wildfowl plus some open mic performances.

On Saturday 30th we’ll be at the Barge in Gillingham for performances by Balance Lost, Natalie Evans and Chris ‘Arfur’ Allen for a gig that will serve not only as an after launch party for the ME5 album, but also as a ‘goodnight and thank you’ from Medway Eyes. Not only will ME5 be the last album we put out, this will also be the last ever Medway Eyes event. We’ve achieved a lot along the way, but five years is a long enough run for a good idea and it’s time to pursue other things.

So come along. It’ll be fun :0)

Medway Does Americana: Videos

Thanks again to everyone who came to the Barge last week to help us raise money to keep The Medway Broadside online and afloat for another year. As well as playing, Rew shot some hand-held footage of all the performers, and you can now see a song from each of them below. It was quite an evening. You can probably tell that :0)

Medway Does Americana: Line-Up

We’re pleased to announce this splendid line-up for our forthcoming Americana evening at the Barge on Saturday 14th July.  The event will be a fundraiser for the Medway Broadside, an independent news and culture paper for the Medway Towns whose print and online editions are produced through the efforts of a skilled and dedicated team of local volunteers working together to produce an eloquent and representative voice for the community. The Broadside covers local news, politics, arts, culture and sport, providing an incisive take on events in Medway, whilst celebrating and promoting local creativity. We’ll be raising money to keep it online for another year and fund this Autumn’s print run.

Through My Eyes: An Exhibition by Paul Johnston

Paul Johnston is a Medway based photographer who has received huge acclaim for his contributions to Medway Eyes group exhibitions Look At Medway, Tidal Flow, Sight Unseen and Unframed in the past three years or so. This month, he steps forward to present his first ever solo exhibition at Riverside Country Park. Expect the River Medway to be a feature, but also look out for early mornings, singular takes on familiar subjects and a wry underlying humour in Paul’s work.

The exhibition is free and runs from Sunday 28th August to Saturday 10th September. You can preview the exhibition on the afternoon of Saturday 27th August from 1pm, when Paul and the team will be having lunch in the picnic/playground area.

Unframed Again: Sunday 7th August

We enjoyed last year’s Unframed exhibition at the Barge so much that we thought we’d do it again.  Click on the poster to download it, spread the word and join us for a portable, accessible exhibition by local photographers wrapped up in a family friendly afternoon of live acoustic music from Didi Bergman and Survivors of Suki. Check out the Facebook event here.

The Len Price 3 Unplugged

Great news! The Len Price 3 have always fancied doing an acoustic gig and will be playing at the Barge on April 16th with support from Groovy Uncle and The Bresslaws. The gig is a fundraiser for Medway Eyes and The Medway Broadside, so bring plenty of loose change, as neither we nor the Broadside receive any funding – instead we are volunteer run and completely independent.

For those who might like a memento of the gig to take home, there will be a strictly limited number of prints available on the night from the photo shoots for the band’s Pictures album.

We’re curious to hear how all three artists’ songs will sound pared down to their acoustic essentials, and we reckon you will be too. See you on the 16th…
