Syd Barrett play and 60s psych at London's ICA
Interesting event at London's ICA on 21st April - Freak Out, Ethel!, which is described as "an evening of musical mayhem".
What that means in reality is three bands and a play about Syd Barrett. The play is Malcolm Boyle's one-man The Madcap - a journey into the psychedelic underground as seen through the eyes of Syd Barrett, mixing narrative with hallucinatory film, slide projections and Boyle's own interpretations of Barrett's songs.
Along with that, there's live performances from The Amazing World of Arthur Brown, Circulus and The Pretty Things, plus psychedelic visuals from Optikinetics (as pictured).
Tickets are £20 / £18 (concessions) and £16 ICA Members
