With the recent sad news that George A. Romero has passed away, Modern Robot’s original take on his zombie classic at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe is a chance to celebrate his iconic legacy. ALIVE: Music for Night of the Living Dead sees edited screenings of Romero’s bleak cult horror movie treated to tense and disturbing live scoring at ZOO Venues this August.

That’s right. Three of the amazing shows we’re producing at the Edinburgh Fringe this season are currently in the midst of (or about to launch into) previews at the 59e59 Theatres’ East to Edinburgh festival in New York City. It’s a great opportunity to catch the shows before they hit the largest open access arts festival in the world for their European premieres, and support these brilliant artists. Get your tickets now, while there’s still time.

If you’ve had the audio-visually orgasmic pleasure of catching a Carla Lippis gig in the past, then you know audiences are in for an epic treat when she premieres her new show, Cast A Dark Shadow, in London later this month. In the lead-up to her full run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August, Carla and her band are performing two exclusive previews at Crazy Coq’s Live @ Zédel in Soho, and we can’t wait to wrap our ears around her silky smooth and scary powerful retro-electric sound!

Listen up, creative types; our associate producer Louise Oliver has got something to tell you. Whether you’re about to battle the wild and fickle beast that is the Edinburgh Fringe, or pack in a secure day job for a precarious career in the performing arts, Louise is here to remind you of how much the world needs you. And as seasoned arts industry manager, who also acts, writes, sings, and produces for a living, she knows what the hell she’s talking about.
