E-LUMINATE - Dark & Light
Friday 10th February 2017 / Corn Ex / 8pm
This is going to be different. The opening concert of the fabulous e-Luminate Festival will feature Dark Room, a multi-sensory journey through darkness to the light, followed by us - in collaboration with projection artist Jack Beccegato and Carlo Fiorini. We will be a blank visual canvas, for Jack to work his magic on... and it is going to be stunning.
Tickets £20 (inc. booking fee) available online here.
We Are Sound / Burst
Sat 8th July, 7.45pm / St John’s Church / Bury St Edmunds
Music fans, give your ears some serious love. On Saturday 8th July we will be gigging a festival of tracks for one night only, in a small and intimate church. If that sounds odd, just trust us - it works. Think Bombay Bicycle Club, Mumford & Sons, Lorde, Sigrid, The National, The Rolling Stones, OK Go, Simian Mobile Disco, Arcade Fire, Everything Everything, Gregory Porter, Vampire Weekend, Bastille, Oh Wonder & Vance Joy, all in one gig. We'll be climbing into, flipping upside down and turning inside out these brilliant tracks in ways that you have never heard before. Come to be surprised, and to start your summer of music off with an explosive night of euphoric sound.
Tickets £14 in advance (£15 cash on the door) available online here / in person at The Apex box office in Bury St Edmunds / over the phone on 01284 758000.

THE CHRISTMAS COCKTAIL
Sat 10th Dec 2016 / Corn Ex / 7.45pm
Described as Cambridge's answer to Pink Martini, we'll be bringing our genre-bending, hootenanny-styled, cocktail-infused, irreverently-unpredictable and euphoria-inducing Christmas Cocktail gig back to the Cambridge Corn Exchange for the third time.
It'll be everything a Christmas party should be, covering bands including Bjork, Mumford & Sons, Vampire Weekend, Vance Joy, Asgeir, Professor Bobo & Bosko Slim, Basement Jaxx and Paper Aeroplanes... shaken and stirred with some additional Christmas spice and of course The Pogues.
Tickets: £18.50 / £14.50 ( + venue booking fee) with concessions, family & group tickets available.

Cambridge Literary festival
Sun 27th Nov 2016 / Union Society / 8.30pm
Following a long standing creative friendship between the two founders of We Are Sound and Cambridge Literary Festival, they've at last pulled off a teaser gig to close the winter festival. We're appearing unplugged and scaled down in advance of our full throttle appearance in the Corn Ex a couple of weeks later. Come for a gentle ease in and to celebrate the end of a cracking weekend of words and wonder.
