The Color Bars Experience PLAYS NICK DRAKE joined by:
Mark Gardener (RIDE)
Eric Pulido (MIDLAKE BAND)
Brian Lopez (Giant Sand)

Troy Von Balthazar

Following on from the success of the High On The Sound project – a tribute to Elliott Smith that featured the likes of Grandaddy’s Jason Lytle & Troy Von Balthazar – the Color Bars Experience pays tribute to another great melodist in the person of Nick Drake. Nick Drake left his mark on pop music despite only releasing 3 albums, each one iconic. Drake’s Pink Moon is the central point of this tribute, a raw album with only one guitar and his voice, however, Color Bars Experience will play this album in a chamber music format, exclusively using acoustic & classical instruments.

Joining CBE for this intimate performance will be RIDE frontman Mark Gardener, MIDLAKE BAND guitarist Eric Pulido and Brian Lopez of Giant Sand, all of whom will bring additional depth to the collaborative reinvention.

We’re thrilled to be hosting this exclusive collaborative effort at Islington Assembly Hall in December!

Troy Von Balthazar
Once the frontman for the cult band Chokebore Troy Von Balthazar’s solo work has focused on creating melodic atmospheres, intense and continually stimulating, with his seemingly effortlessness project drawing comparisons to Sparklehorse and John Frusciante. This year saw the successful release of the cinematic, Knights Of Something, TVB’s fourth solo album and the first since Chokebore’s reformation.
