Birmingham, The Custard Factory
23rd June 2018
Fighting Boredom’s Adrian Bloxham and Martin Ward are back at the second day of this years wonderful Supersonic Festival. Already we are thinking that it’ll be hard to top Friday night but the hardest thing today will be deciding which acts to see and which to miss.
Saturday at Supersonic is the longest day and night. There are a plethora of acts, musicians and art to attract and catch you as you walk around and just like Friday, the weather is perfect. We start as usual in the beer shop in the Custard factory and sit contemplating the lists for the day and reflecting on what last night brought.
The doors open at four and the first act we catch is Joasihno who are set up in the open space in the bright sunshine on the floor in front of the stage. They are playing various instruments, a xylophone or two to make nursery rhyme sounds and a calliope rhythm. Lush waves of sound echo over the music. It’s mesmerising and very warm, wide open to interpretation and crystal clear in my head.
