Image26th of April is one for the diary of anyone who likes their music slightly left field. The night kicks off with local oddballs and leading lights of the Quantum Rock scene, Super Squarecloud who mix demure, otherworldly vocals with strange time signatures and jazz infected indie rock.

And as the kookiness level rises Schnauser, Bristols adoptive aliens will be show casing songs from their forthcoming album. Imagine the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band jamming with XTC covering acid tripping Beatles and throwing in Beach Boys style harmonies, just because they can.

The highlight of the night is Anton Barbeau, a Sacramento spaced oddity now living in Berlin (isn’t everyone?). Ploughing the same musical furrow as the likes of Julian Cope and other British new wave pop mavericks, Barbeaus rhythm section is none other than Morris Windsor and Andy Metcalfe – alt-pop royalty who were members of psychedelic punks, The Soft Boys and more famously Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians.
