We are pleased to announce this latest addition to the Rough Trade 40th anniversary celebration shows, this very special evening featuring Thurston Moore and Charles Hayward. Two iconic musicians, long dedicated to the art of improvisation as both fans and performers will collaborate for what promises to be a genuine one-off event. Hosted at The Social, and with a Rough Trade DJs line-up of James Endeacott, Simon Russell and Amy Hurst, this will undoubtedly be a night to remember.



Very special guests:

Josh T. Pearson

Duke Garwood & Smoke Fairies

Will Burns & Adam Chetwood

+ Roughtrade DJs

In a hugely exciting addition to the Rough Trade 40th Anniversary programme, we are pleased to announce a very special show at The Social on Monday 31st October. Featuring headline act Josh T. Pearson, fresh from the triumph of a reformed Lift to Experience Royal Festival Hall Meltdown show, kindly agreeing to a one-off performance of rare intimacy. Josh has long been a friend to Rough Trade, and all at the shops have equally long admired the unique, literate and original work of this singular interpreter of American song. Also appearing will be Duke Garwood and Smoke Fairies, collaborating especially for the evening. Two acts who delicately balance an innately British sensibility with a gritty, blues-y suite of American influences to create truly original music, their work together promises to be something not to be missed. And opening proceedings will be the poet Will Burns and pedal-steel guitar player Adam Chetwood. Adam is a veteran of both recording and touring bands, having workedwith the likes of White Denim, Black Peaches, Legends of Country and Mark Ronson. Will is poet-in-residence at long-time allies of Rough Trade, Caught by the River and published by iconic English publisher Faber & Faber. An evening that we hope will show off the rude health of music made in the apparently simple mechanics of voice and guitar, and pushing the boundaries of the rough folk traditions of both the UK and America into new, exciting, literate spaces. And all in one of our favourite venues.
