And an interview with me is here

I’m especially looking forward to performing with Sheish and Graham during Saturday’s set – we’re going to improvise it as much as possible – can’t wait!

Tickets for the opening event, Of Rhythm and Rapture are available here – and for such a great line-up $25 or less is a steal
