7th September | Café Kino
Having been on the Bristol circuit for years, it isn’t hard to believe that Oliver Wilde is a treasured artist in the community. With his third full-length album Post-Frenz Container Buzz (released in 2017 on Howling Owl Records) being his most accomplished work to date, Wilde consistently produces gorgeous alt-rock-psych material that explores many avenues.
On 7th September, in an event brought to us by 1% of 1, Wilde will be taking to the cosy comfort of Café Kino in Stokes Croft with a stripped-back set in an evening celebrating more than just the musical arts. Storytelling and poetry will come in abundance. The night also sees special guests, Lexi Jennings, Jemima Coulter and Josie Blakelock opening proceedings.
Wilde’s ability of creating front-running fuzzy pop tracks, laced with snarling reverb, is just one aspect of why he is an immeasurably talented songwriter; another aspect lies in the power of his humble yet enthralling performance. His career thus far has seen him create euphoric guitar music, showcasing a craftsmanship that is rare. His back catalogue of exemplary works is a testament to a bedroom writer, possibly not as aware of his own creative brilliance as we are.
He’s been absent from performing live over the last few months, this night is set to be a chance to see a cherished cult performer bring some new material to one of Bristol’s uniquely intimate venues.
