Baxter Dury – if there is one gig you go to in 2020, make it this one

Friday 21st Feb, White Rock Theatre – Hastings Fat Tuesday

Support from Kid Kapichi

Failed Fashionistas, Instagram voyeurs, jilted Romeos, reeking insecurity, the willingly self deluded, the comically unware, the night chancers… Baxter loves you.

Baxter Dury will be releasing his brand new album, ‘The Night Chancers’ on March 20th 2020 – but in advance of this and his UK tour he will be warming up the White Rock Theatre for the main event of this year’s Fat Tuesday ‘Mardi Gras’ weekender.

Co-produced by Baxter and long-time collaborator Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, John Grant, Artic Monkeys) the album has been long-awaited by fans of this lugubriously louche anti-pop star…check out this track – Slumlord for a taste of what to expect.

The video was directed by Tom Haines, who has won acclaim for his previous work with Civil Wars, Jon Hopkins, & Temper Trap. He has also done documentary work for the BBC & Channel 4.

Baxter will also be embarking on his biggest UK/Euro tour so far, in April 2020, with a headline London show at Kentish Town Forum on April 22nd.

From thrilling affairs that dissolve into sweaty desperation (Night Chancers) to the absurd bloggers, fruitlessly clinging to the fag ends of the fashion set (Sleep People), via soiled real life (Slum Lord) social media – enabled stalkers (I’m not Your Dog) and new day, sleep – deprived optimism (Daylight), the record’s finely drawn vignettes, are all based on the corners of world Dury has visited.

Baxter says “Night Chancers is about being caught out in your attempt at being free”, it’s about someone leaving a hotel room at three in the morning. You’re in a posh room with big Roman taps and all that, but after they go suddenly all you can hear is the taps dripping, and all you can see the debris of the night is around you. Then suddenly a massive party erupts, in the room next door. This happened to me and all I could hear was the night chancer, the hotel ravers”.

…and if you live in Hastings, love live music, but don’t know Kid Kapichi… well what rock have you been hiding under?? This is the band who if you don’t see them RIGHT NOW you’ll never be able to say you saw them before they were famous.
