Thriloka playing at Big Ears
Big Ears is a night of music and poetry and stuff organized by Thriloka. I say better than Open Mic because the crowd is bigger and more inclusive and because there’s more music. I suppose the better word is different, Open Mic was cool while it was. But Big Ears has the added benefit of existing. In fact, it’s tonight at the Arts Campus, 46, Horton Place, Colombo 07 (opposite Asha Central). Starts at six. I highly recommend.
Last time I was quite frankly wowed by the quality. Thriloka did a tranfixing jam on some Jon Scofield stuff and this poet Krishantha did some fascinating reading of stuff about how stuff really is here, and its connection the cosmos, set to music and with real rhythm. It’s more interesting cause the crowd is a bunch of people I don’t know, including uni kids from all over. I think tonight’s show should be great as well.
