JUICEBOX with Tommy Cash and Yves Tumor
JUICEBOX returns for L19 for one night only of cult-queer art-club hedonism. Over the years, Live Art Bistro have gained notoriety for their take on late night soirees, capturing the attention of some of the world’s most radical and boundary-breaking performers in the process.
JUICEBOX @ L19 proves no exception, presenting some of the most urgent and transgressive humans working in music today. Yves Tumor, the LA-based enigmatic gothic soundscape auteur, Tommy Cash, conceptual artist and post-Soviet raver, Grime music’s queer pioneer Karnage Kills & Leeds' own NikNak will be headlining to kill.
Yves Tumor...try to get beneath his skin and personas spill out like the warped contents of a grotesquely beautiful matryoshka doll. A kaleidoscopic union of songwriting and lobotomised sound experiment, Yves onstage is an assault of howling cyberpunk.
Estonian rapper Tommy Cash mixes his music with conceptual art, playing with boundaries and distinctions -the expectations around rap, Western versus Eastern European, gender...the list goes on. As well as his unique sound and conceptual videos, he is a distinctive freestyle dancer, and also released a subversive clothing line.
Karnage Kills is a Grime hero uniquely switching it up between spitting classic bars and hypersexual homosexuality, addressing prejudice against who he is from within the Grime world and beyond. “Gay, femme, and fearless”, Karnage Kills is a Grime star on the up, whose live performances are raw and electric.
The after-party (tickets soon to be available), is set be massive -as Leeds has come to expect in the fluid playgrounds of the city’s underground performance/party scene.
JUICEBOX will be opening the stable doors to one and all, letting our freaks off the leash. This will be joyous, subversive, triumphant and sublimely anarchic –this is one party not to miss!In a festival that champions innovation, JUICEBOX reminds us that in the not-too-distant future, when the cows have smaller udders, the sheep have less wool, and the robots keep the humans as sex toys, they will speak of 2019 as the time when the binary folded into superposition. Today we shimmy and jive to the tune of and/and in a post-yes/no. Yesterday was us and them. Tonight we dance as one, revelling in this collective mess of a dream. With the full line-up still to be announced, expect pioneering sound, boundary-shattering transgression, and hedonism from some of the most exciting performers of our times.
