Two Sides of the Same Coin: An Update

We’ve had a few questions about this coming Friday, so it seems like a  good idea to post a potted itinerary. Plus, we’ve got some news. Our regular readers will all by now be aware of the exhibition Two Sides of the Same Coin (see Eyes passim) that opens between 6:30 and 8:00 pm on Friday 4th February at the Brook Theatre in Chatham. This preview, to which you are all invited, is just the first half of what promises to be a belter of an evening. From 8:30 pm we have a stunning line up of live music at the Nag’s Head in Rochester. Wheels and Lupen Crook will be sharing the bill, and we’re delighted to announce that they are being  joined by very special guest Dave Read, formerly the front man with local legends The Claim, and one of the finest songwriters we can think  of. So there.

The exhibition itself showcases the stunning work of artist  Daisy Parris, supported by photographer Phil Dillon. It’s about local influences and talent and is as much about the fellow creatives the work points up as it is the artists themselves. Ultimately though, it’s about Medway, its culture and its catalysts.

Daisy and Phil will be on Fizzer’s radio show on Radio Sunlight tomorrow night from 8pm, as indeed will Wheels. There’s also an exclusive and refreshing interview with Daisy at the Medway Broadside.
