Preview // Candela: A Dark & Foreboding Night of Mystery & Music at Williamson Tunnels, Liverpool.

Here at #SRCZ we like these three things very much: Candara font, lamps and underground places. It follows then that at least two of these should figure in Candela, billed as a ‘dark and foreboding night of mystery and music’ due to take place October 18th at the very fantastic heritage site in Liverpool, Williamson Tunnels.


Rebel Soul and Lamp Scientists have teamed up to create 'Candela'; a night of "mystery and music" at the heritage site; Williamson Tunnels on October 18th. The event takes place to launch 'Elements and Natural Phenomena' the latest ep by Science of the Lamps, the limited run CD and digital release will contain new material from the band including; Scary Smile, Superhero Me and Flames & Firefighters.

Support comes from an exclusive performance by 'A Fistful of Spooks', containing members of world renowned act; The Spooky Men's Chorale.

When The Spooky Men’s Chorale retreated to Australia after their sell-out 2013 UK Tour, a few stalwarts remained. Like a tide-mark in an enamel bath, this collection of UK Spooks are still around, keeping the flame of Spookiness alive in Britain.

"I'm a huge vocal harmony geek, and a massive fan of the incredibly funny and talented Spooky Men's Chorale, so having the chance to welcome a 'Fistful' of them to our EP launch is a great honour." Kaya, Science of the Lamps


Support on the night also comes from; The Good Host with visuals and sounds from X-Ray Katt (The Mixnots) and The Walrus Said... as well as being hosted by comedy theatre company Be Your Own Banana

Both Rebel Soul and Lamp Scientists (a collaboration between the band Science of the Lamps and Dj X-Ray Katt) have a reputation for taking gigs to the next level of audience experience, both of them are involved in Threshold Festival of Music & Arts, The Voodoo Ball and A Culture Less Ordinary, the organisers always aim to take a concept and run it right through every aspect of their events. 

"Candela was born out of discussions of science and lamps, the dawn of electricity in a very dark time in the world. The event is inspired by maverick scientists, dark tales of grave robbing doctors and the mysterious world of Nikola Tesla. The Tunnels provide us with the perfect setting for this" - Rory Taylor, Rebel Soul

Advance tickets are available at £6 from Eventbrite and include a free glass of bubbly on arrival to the Tunnels from 8pm. Limited on the door tickets will cost £8 (£6 concessions)
