Diamond Road Show + Apocalypse

Wednesday 25th September, 2013

St Columba Church | 19:30


The Diamond Road Show is the work of Hamburg-based artists Digger Barnes & Pencil Quincy, a journey through dream structures, events and unfoldings that inventively blends road-movie aesthetics with experimental film techniques.

The soundscape is created by one-man-band, storyteller and outlaw Digger Barnes, with each song a cinematic journey drawing on influences from folk music, soundtracks and Americana. The visuals come from low-brow Pencil Quincy and his Magic Machine, combining early cinematic and animation technology with his imimitable, vaudeville style.

Preceding the performance we'll be screening Apocalypse: A Tour Documentary (dir: Hanly Banks, 2012), an intimate one-hour film following singer-songwriter Bill Callahan as he tours the US and Europe with his most recent album.

This one-off event is part of Scalarama, a UK-wide celebration of cinema taking place throughout September.
