Caught by the River

Caught by the River presents: Boy Friends II

29th March 2022

Following the swift sell-out of the first night, Caught by the River (with Faber & Faber) now bring you: Boy Friends by boy friends.

Featuring a waltz through Michael Pedersen’s book Boy Friends with gaggle of boy friends that feature in the book!  

Opening proceedings will be an acoustic set from cult folk-pop-rock troubadour, Withered Hand — said to be ‘The UK’s best lyricist‘ by King Creosote (in The Independent).

At the centre of it all, an in-conversation with Michael Pedersen and Bill Drummond that may or may not cover: the book in question; male friendship; The Curfew Tower; dead pets; the unique artwork Bill is producing for this event; their Unst adventure.

Closing the show will be a musical unfurling by Heavenly’s newest signing Eyes of Others — whose inimitable post-pub couldn’t get in the club music could be accused of invoking the spirits of both Arthur Russell and Sorely MacLean (one of whom Eyes of Others is a direct descendent of).

The event takes place on Wednesday 6 July. Advance tickets are priced £8 and available here. Discounted subscriber tickets are also available for this event.
