Native People Performing at the Gulbenkian This Week
On Thursday 20 October at 8pm, will be performing live at a very familiar venue – the University of Kent’s Gulbenkian!
The indie-dance four piece hailing from local town Folkestone have been featured on Clash and AMBY, as well as received accolades from BBC Introducing Kent and Amazing Radio – the latter being a station dedicated to playing emerging, new music.
The Native People headline gig is organised by Gulbenkian and , a collective that runs events in various venues across Canterbury and the surrounding area. The Kentish band will be joined by and in support, both similarly local groups; Glass Peaks also offer an indie-inspired sound, and Holy Pinto are a duo with an indie-rock feel, playing around with lyrical storytelling similar to the likes of Frank Turner.
For any fans of Foals, Friendly Fires or Two Door Cinema Club, Native People are worth sampling. Their latest single is titled ‘Figure it Out’, taken from their upcoming 4-track EP named ‘To Lose What’.
This rhythmic alternative to Canterbury’s standard Thursday night offerings costs only £5 for students, with tickets available to purchase from the Gulbenkian website (or, just pop in between lectures!).
