Mumford and Sons: Tour with a difference

These guys could and have sold out arenas and big gig venues, but their new tour defies an agenda based on maximising profit. It’s got locals in mind.

Their upcoming UK tour over May and June 2012 will see them play small venues who don’t usually get the chance to experience bands with this much success.

In an interview broadcast on BBC Radio 6 the band likened each tour date as a mini festival, seeing it as a celebration of a particular place. This is then furthered by joining other bands to play smaller gigs (could maybe be considered more jam sessions) at local pub’s etc.

To find out the details, dates and venues check out their website and this link.

TED  pledge to bring you ideas worth sharing. Often these ideas come in the form of presentations and lectures from academia. Despite the information being tremendiously important, concerning and useful to, lets face it, humanity, sometimes the ideas being expressed may be tedious.

Make no mistake though, this video is still just one man talking on stage but the way he uses the words of so many others, from so many sources, is as entertaining and meaningful as the original sources.

This has been specificaly picked up and shared by Sol Revo Evo because it uses connections and stitches together vast areas or expression for a united purpose.  That is exactly what this project is all about.

As we are on the topic of connections, here is another performer, connected by their use of the spoken word.

Myth of the suffering artist…

Interesting wee read. See what you think…

“If we follow this kind of thinking to its logical conclusion, we are about to encounter a tsunami of art from pensioners. They will be inspired by living below the poverty line and dying during cold winters. That, or their rage at having, perhaps, been part of the generation who saved the country from Nazism and created the welfare state, only to be screwed over when they’re at their most vulnerable by a parliament filled with self-obsessed looters.”
