Green Mind presents JOSH ROUSE

With Brill Building wit, and a Midwestern sense of melancholy Josh Rouse has built a career that spans almost 25 years, reaching back to his acclaimed 1998 debut “Dressed Up Like Nebraska” and continuing to his breakthrough albums “1972” and “Nashville”. His well-crafted and hook-laden tracks are coupled with closely-detailed, well-observed vignettes in his lyrics.

Now passing 50, Josh faces the next phase of his life. “I remember seeing Tom Waits on the cover of a magazine with the headline ‘Tom Waits at 50’.” Josh recalls “I was in my twenties and that seemed so far off… but he made a great record (“Mule Variations”) and I hope I have too.”

Planet 9 +Euphony +Beneath The River +Hard Drive
Jul 7 @ 7:00 pm – 10:30 pm

Appraised with extraordinary potential and relentless energy, Planet 9 tares 60s blues-rock into the pop scene – blended with modern & 80s funk, concocted into the euphoric phantasmagoria of this original band. Enrapturing audiences across London, Colchester, Braintree and Cambridge, the lineup consists of lead guitarist Zac Potter, thrusting wicked Hendrix-like Rock’n’Roll runs; bass guitarist Ivan Bosch, thundering his whip-like pounding of slap bass; the diesel-fuelled unrelenting engine of punk drummer Owen Herd, and billows of smoking Blues keys and vocals of Noah Bennell.

Culminating in deep-rooted groove, Planet 9 WELCOMES you to join us on our space odyssey of musical ecstasy…

Accompanying them on this thrill filled evening will be Cambridge band competition finalists Hardrive along with silly Colchester punk band Beneath the River and and young emerging talents Euphony.
