SHTF

Saturday the 15th of September  8pm to 11pm.      FREE ENTRY

The robots are coming! 

SHTF is a multi-media arts event inspired by the  curious subculture of ‘'Preppers'’ and ideas of a dystopian future where  humans will have to adapt to survive. 
 
Our latest event is themed around the rapid technological advances being made with robotics and automation and how they might impact future society. 
 
Will intelligent machines make our lives easier or might they take control over, or even destroy humanity?


The line-up is:

SMOKE AND MIRRORS performing improvised projections on 3 screens with
visuals choreographed live to a DJ'd sound-scape incorporating
Experimental Electronic, House, Techno and Electro.

DJ SMOOTHGROOVE, whose career began in the ’80s at the outset of Detroit
Techno and took off in the European underground scene via the Offworld
sound system tour of the freshly liberated Eastern Block of former
Soviet states- Bassmental ’91. Smoothgroove helped develop the early
Techno scene in Berlin performing and liaising with visiting Detroit
artists and producers (inc’ Underground Resistance) as well as
representing several UK labels and artists e.g. Kick’in  Records. He
shared a residency at Amsterdam’s Radio 100-  the Offworld Show with DJ
Marijke which he brought to Ipswich Community Radio where he continues
broadcasting new music to this day).
