Gig/Arts: Kaleidoscope 6 at The Night Owl
Edition six of the unmissable Kaleidoscope cultural avalanche of art and music is back on Thursday to tickle your senses. Be prepared to get a bit trippy with three bands who all dip their noise into a psychedelic whirlpool and give it an almighty stir, local rockers Outlander are joined by Luna Rosa and Yung Jimmy’s Big Ideas. As usual Kaleidoscope DJs Brain Food will be keeping the tunes eclectic and there’s an enormous roster of artists exhibiting (and selling) their art.
