EVE WRESTLING: SHE-1 SERIES

Regular readers of The Red Bulletin will know EVE from our November

2018 feature on the all-women, punk-rock, pro-wrestling organisation.

The self-proclaimed ‘Riot Grrrls of Wrestling’ deliver all the action and

theatrics you’d expect from the best in big-league brawling, but with

a feminist message of inclusion – that women of any age can get crazy

in the ring and enjoy themselves. And, you know, guys can spectate.

This two-day, four-event fight series will see combatants from around

the world battle to reach the Sunday final. And if you’re a girl who just

wants to have fun (and dreams of the GLOW life), organisers Emily and

Dann Read run training sessions at the EVE Academy in Bethnal Green.

Roundhouse Rising

Festival

Camden’s Roundhouse has a long history of giving

fresh talent a platform; at its opening concert in

October 1966, two promising bands were on the bill:

Soft Machine and Pink Floyd. For the past nine years,

with partners such as Gilles Peterson’s talent discovery

agency and BBC Music Introducing, the venue has

dedicated an annual festival to the cause. This year,

artists such as grime MC Big Zuu and art-pop act

Æ MAK will follow in the footsteps of former Rising

alumni like Little Simz by playing the intimate Sackler

Space, while hip-hop avant-gardist GAIKA headlines

the main stage with a 10-piece jazz ensemble.

Rebel Vision

Havana

Moon Tour

Picture the immersive experience

of Secret Cinema, but applied to

recreating iconic concerts. Rebel

Vision (aka former music moguls

Andy Cuthbert and Tom Clarke)

deliver this using theatrics, SFX and

cinematics – here, they present

Moon gig in Cuba. There’s even a

merchandise stand selling actual

tour memorabilia from the day.

Reel Rock

Film Tour

Enjoy a movie with a good

cliffhanger? That’s what you get

at this nationwide film festival:

the best of the year’s climbing

and adventure features, including

four world premieres. One of

these tells the story of two pairs

of freeclimbing titans – Alex

Honnold and Tommy Caldwell,

and Jim Reynolds and Brad

Gobright – going head-to-head to

claim the speed record for scaling

El Capitan’s famous Nose route.

Sonica Glasgow

Is it art? Music? Audio-visual

mumbo jumbo? Or a higher

sensory experience that

transcends mere categorisation

to challenge our concepts of

reality? You may be none the wiser

after witnessing these incredible

sound-and-image performances

from as far afield as Slovenia

and Argentina. It all kicks off

with Aether, an immersive threedimensional

light matrix sonically

conducted by electronic musician

and scientist Max Cooper.
