Shabazz Palaces

Cosmic rappers Shabazz Palaces, Franco-pop-o-naut Sébastien Tellier and Melt Yourself Down (featuring a rare PA by guest James Chance) are all listed to play live headline sets at this year’s Illuminations festival, live promoter Rockfeedback’s London-based series of one-off shows and arts/film events.

Taking place in various spaces all over London from 27 Oct – 7 Nov, the Illuminations 2014 programme starts off with a screening of ‘Wild Combination’, a film portrait of late alt-disco infiltrator Arthur Russell.

Also on the film side, and thanks to a collaboration with the Hackney Picturehouse, are a showing of Fugazi doc ‘Instrument’; a Channel 4 ‘Random Acts’-curated night of short films featuring the likes of Savages and Jacques Greene; a ‘from the vault’-style parade of ‘shocking and sensational’ music videos from MTV’s ‘120 Minutes’; and on 31 Oct, a Halloween screening of ‘Godfather Of Gore’ Lucio Fulci’s horror movies with live rendition of their Fabio Frizzi-written scores.
