Let the Fiddle See the Griddle
Hockley Social Club is teaming up with the mighty CBSO
In the sort of tie-up that makes you weep with Brummie pride, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Hockley Social Club are chest-bumping their way into an absolutely not-to-be-missed night of genre-bending live music and street food. In a perfect evening for the musically curious, four musicians from the world-class CBSO will twist your melon – fusing contemporary classical, indie and everything in between - from Sufjan Stevens to Sigur Rós and Shostakovich. There will be DJ sets from local legend DJ Pritt Kalsi and, of course, the city's finest street food traders. On hand to add to the experience will be Andy Low N Slow, fresh from a rip-roaring few days at the World Cup of UK barbecuing: Meatopia. Buddha Belly will be doing all things Thai while Kodawari are bringing their Japanese A-game. This is a save the date bookmarker for you as £15 tickets — which include one drink — will go on sale at 6pm this Sunday. So, make like Charles Darwin and diarise it. The event itself is Thursday October 21, 6pm to 11pm and promises to be the ideal toe-dipping exercise into one of the jewels in Brum's cultural crown. More
