DIADEM is coming out of hiding in March with 2 really amazing shows. First up we’ve been invited by W2, Soundscape & Panospria to perform at the 7th iteration of the wonderful “Quiet City” series. We’ll be part of an evening of listening and moving with some great locals: Myths, Tusk, No UFOs and Nurse. The show will be March 11th, 9pm at the W2 Storyeum.
A few weeks later DIADEM will be joining Magneticring, V. Vecker, Doc Spinny, and re-joining both MYTHS and Tusk for a night of intentional ritual performances in celebration of the Equinox. Email diademdiscos % gmail % commm if you would like more information about the event.
