N_ilk, Jamboree, Esperi and Competition!

This weekend, Dundee Botanic Gardens, you’ll find a bit more than the usual flora and fauna…

Competition
So, to celebrate Saturday’s events I’ve decided to have a little competition – simply leave a comment here or anywhere on the SuperFly site between now and Friday (10 September by 5pm) and you’ll get your name dropped into a hat to win an Esperi e.p. on CD – winners will be announced after 5.00pm Friday.

Naeilk (Tickets: http://bit.ly/cnLaWJ)
So what’s it all about?
‘Naeilk’ or ‘n_ilk’ stands for ‘no ilk’, no formula or genre, – ‘anything goes’ – the aim is to showcase a variety of local talent, provide a forum for discussion and a network hub. This is the second year for N_ilk at the Botanics and looks to be an amazing mix of art and music from 3.30pm to 10.30pm – Tickets £6 (+booking fee) from Groucho’s or Dundee Uni (link above).

Dundee Jamboree (http://dundee-jamboree.blogspot.com/)
SuperFly collaborators Nikki McWilliams, Jen Collins and Lauren Gentry will also be bringing there own flavour of home crafted artwork to the N_ilks micro festival in the form of ‘Dundee Jamboree’. It’s an opportunity for artists from far and wide to exhibit, showcase and sell their work in a cosy atmosphere reminiscent of the spirit of the Great Exhibition of 1851.

You can learn a bit more about Dundee Jamboree in the inaugural (Super)FlyOnTheWall mini-doc – here. Interestingly you’ll hear Nikki talk about the Big Top Jamboree which took place in May and how they’re going to take it easy until about Christmas time.. well, the Botanics is at least the second show since then and Nikki (http://nikkimcwilliams.blogspot.com/) opens her first solo exhibition in Edinburgh tomorrow (Tuesday 7 September) so clearly no-one has been taking it easy in the Jamboree quarters! ;)

Esperi (http://www.myspace.com/esperi)
Finally, a great find from Dundee’s Guerilla Gallery (itself a brilliant mash-up of creative visuals and music) earlier in the year was ‘Esperi’ – i’d never seen him perform before but I was mesmerised from start to finish and can’t recommend enough that you check him out at the Botanics on Saturday.
Once again he’ll be teaming with VJ Retchy and for footage of previous collaborations you really should visit Retchy’s site. (http://www.retchy.com/)

And don’t forget that you can be in with a chance to win a copy of Esperi’s current e.p. by leaving a comment somewhere on the SuperFly site.
