The OUTSIDELEFT NIGHT OUT is a joyous thing, and it will return and be so again. Once we get through this together.

We are hugely disappointed to announce that all events are cancelled for the foreseeable future. I hope you understand our reasoning. We can't in good conscience risk your wellbeing, the wellbeing Why Not's staff, the artists that perform and members of the community. And what about us, we are old!

David Benjamin Blower

live at Bearwood's Why Not Coffee shop

David Benjamin Blower performs his new LP 'We Really Existed and We Really Did This' at the inaugural Outsideleft Night Out, live at Bearwood's Why Not Coffee shop on Saturday, September 28th.

Highly regarded as a folk musician and a radical poet, he says of We Really Existed and We Really Did This "The title is reaching for the feeling you get when you let it sink in that your species has triggered an era of mass extinction, a chain reaction of destructive weather phenomena and a new geological age. No species has ever done the amazing things we're doing now in 4.6 billion years of the earth's natural history. All of which might result in our own extinction. At first you're horrified and desperate and anguished. And then you laugh and cry and it feel the sheer wonder of the fact that we ever came to exist in the first place. It's a record of folk poetry type songs and soundscapes, with nods to Ennio Morricone, and a lot of sadness and joy."
