SHS #5: Lucky Dragons
3 Jul 2013

Presented by Upset The Rhythm, a live performance by LA based experimental group, Lucky Dragons.

8pm til late.

Lucky Dragons came together in the spring of 2000 in an attempt to create a band that would never break up. The name is borrowed from a Japanese fishing vessel caught in the fallout of a US hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific Ocean that became a focal point for worldwide anti-nuclear sentiment in the 20th century.

Lucky Dragons are Luke Fischbeck and Sarah Rara, who together create an ecstatic form of electronic music that celebrates the spirit of life as well as the magic of genre boundaries.

At this performance Lucky Dragons will be supported by Mary Ocher, an artist who works with various media, be it words, sound, color or movement since mastering the craft of songwriting at the age of 11. In 2011, Ocher was discovered by King Khan at a karaoke Bar in Berlin. He immediately invited her to record at his legendary Moon Studios. The album took over a year to finish but was released by Buback earlier this month.

Part of SHS: SPACE’s summer exhibition and event programme. SHS features a series of London debut solo exhibitions - respectively by Chelmsford Film Society, Sarah Rara and Megan Rooney - as well as events by Wojciech Kosma, Book Works and Lucky Dragons.
