An evening of warm, instrumental, psychedelic and melodic ambient music from Bitchin Bajas, plus support from The Hairdressers.

Bitchin Bajas started in 2010 as solo side project for Cooper Crain, guitarist of Chicago Krautrock heroes Cave. Since then, Dan Quinlivan and Rob Frye joined the band and Bitchin Bajas have got the public attention thanks to a perfect, extensive discography on quality record labels such as Bathetic, Permanent, Hands In The Dark and Drag City. The trio play warm, instrumental, psychedelic and melodic ambient music, mixing minimal 60/70’s electronic with original acoustic elements: flute, saxophone, xylophone, woodwinds to name only a few.

Support comes from The Hairdressers. The Hairdressers are Robyn Steward (trumpet with fx) and Kathy Hulme (cello).

Kathy Hulme is perhaps best known for her work with the Honkies in the 80’s, but more recently has played with her duo the C siders with Rob Storey (Club integral). She also performs solo; singing and spoken word. She is an Alexander Technique teacher and has worked in music education for the last 20 years as a Kodaly music educator.

Upon attending a spaceheads gig in January 2016 Robyn Steward realised she came from the same planet as Trumpet player Andy Diagram and drummer Richard Harrison ( both formally of the honkies). Robyn started to incorporate effects into her trumpet and now sounds like the love child of the honkies , and now plays with a pedalboard resembling a spacecraft ready for adventure. Robyn has several duos ( jazz biscuits, Two horns) a trio Robyn and the bar stewards and a on hiatus band of 5 trumpets and 1 keyboard “ Robyn Steward and the Hatonauts”. Robyn has now used her skills to educate others in looping , her personal experiences of disability enable her to connect with others in a unique way.
