Sundial Sundays: The Popinjays & The Metatrons
Open-Air Summer Season
Join us in pretty Waterlow Park for a summer BBQ plus a double bill of FREE music as two well-established indie acts perform live on the Tea Lawn.
Indie veterans, The Popinjays, return after a 21 year hiatus. After a critically acclaimed John Peel session, three albums on One Little Indian Records, a US College Radio hit “Vote Elvis”, and tours with They Might Be Giants, The Fatima Mansions, and the Kitchens of Distinction, The Pops called it a day in 1994. Since 2015 they have shared bills with The Darling Buds, The Wonder Stuff, and The Wedding Present. Back with their original set of 90s Indie Pop, Wendy, Polly and the drum machine are currently working on a special limited-edition, legacy release, again with OLI.
The Metatrons are an Indie band from Hitchin. Their second album, "Patterns of Chaos" has recently been featured on BBC6 Music and Sky TV.
Relax on the grass with a burger and a cold drink while you enjoy family-friendly live music as part of our ongoing Sundial Sundays season.
The Popinjays & The Metatrons performance will take place between 2.30 and 4.30pm on 12 August. All sessions are free to attend and open to everyone. See the full programme of Sundial Sunday performances here.
