Andrew Wilson & Toby Lloyd: Constructing a blind pig*|Broadcast Bartender
Thu 27 October 2016, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
As a continuation of their Broadcast Bartender series artists Lloyd &Wilson are hosting two discussions, across two cities, Leeds and Newcastle. Taking place from an installed ‘flat-pack’ bar and in front of a live audience these conversations will be recorded, edited and then broadcast on Resonance FM.
Broadcast Bartender is a conversational platform that borrows the furniture of the traditional Public House to create content for radio broadcast. The themes for discussion will be proposed by an invited guest bartender who will both serve drinks and host the conversation. Unlike the Question Time or panel show format, the architecture of the bar creates an environment which discourages well-rehearsed speeches and sound-bites in favour of convivial and improvised conversation.
Lloyd & Wilson invite you to listen to the full conversation by being part of the live audience on the above dates. See website for booking information.
*The term Blind Pig is another term for unlicensed bars, much like a Speakeasy. The proprietor charges their customers an entry fee to view an attraction (such as an animal) and then serves a ‘complimentary’ alcoholic beverage, thus circumventing the law.
