Bow outs and Beardyman

A couple of months after his Stables gig, Beardyman is back in the Keynes this week – playing a special date in support of #KatsCure.

The beatboxing beard will be live and loud at The Craufurd Arms on Wednesday evening with his One Album Per Hour show.

It’s a scoop for promoters Beatcheck, but then the two parties have enjoyed a long association – back when the brand was based in Brighton, Beardyman used to take the mic for a session.

“When we moved back to our hometown in 2006 we just had to bring him,” said the Beatcheck Monkey.

“He played as a bi-monthly resident after our first MK session...”

Travelling at the speed of thought in his music production spaceship, the world-class multi award-winning musician and comedian will transcend mere mimicry to produce studio quality compositions faster than most could imagine them.

In just 60 minutes he will create a fully improvised album based exclusively on the songs you make up.

Quite what happens relies on your participation.

Every penny of the ticket sales will go to the aforementioned #KatsCure charity, towards Kat’s ground-breaking brain tumour treatment stateside.

Tickets are £14, and you’d be a smart cookie to book in advance for this one.

>Tissues at the ready, folks, this evening sees Nathan Naidoo play his final gig with MK rock mob Ocasan.

The bassist, known to his nearest and dearest as Bear, will pick up the bass with the boys one last time, for the hometown gig at The Craufurd Arms.

“We’ve had the most amazing few years together and shared some incredible memories,” the band said in a statement.

“...there are no hard feelings between us, sometimes people just need to move on in life.

“We love you Bear, always will and wish you all the luck in the world on your new ventures...”

Enter the Lexicon will feature in a supporting role and tickets are on sale at a fiver.

Doors open at 7.30pm.
