 Wednesday, 30 August 2017: Keston Cobblers’ Club (folk music concert)

 There’s something simply unmistakable about Keston Cobblers Club. When the band play, it’s a captivating and engaging experience. Frequently blurring the artist/audience divide by performing from the floor or whipping the crowd into a dancing frenzy; visiting far-flung venues at their fans’ request; assembling a 60-strong amateur ‘Cobblers orchestra’ with total strangers; chartering an old Routemaster bus to launch their EP in the way it should be experienced (on the move); and now, organising this summer’s Camp Wildfire festival – with 50s-style forest adventures and artistry by day, music and hedonism by night – as a way of fully immersing the audience in the spirit of their brand new ‘Wildfire’ album. All of this is to say: you don’t just listen to Keston Cobblers Club. You’re involved.
Beginning: 9 p.m.; Admission: €14; How to get there: Ostpol, Königsbrücker Straße 47, 01099 Dresden; TRAM 7,8,13 ‘Bischofsweg’ stop.
