Following the success of The Slow’s inaugural festival of music, film and art in 2018, Oh So Slow will once again be indulging the island of Bali with 3 days of social events for the senses. Held from the 16th until the 18th of May, the free festival will see the multi-talented LA artists behind Allah-Las and Reverberation Radio descending on Canggu for a second time.
The festival will commence on Thursday the 16th of May with a cinematic evening of films on The Slow’s rooftop, featuring the likes of The Babe Rainbow Tour – Japan directed by Sam Kristofski, and Old Woman Bay directed by Laura-Lynn Petrick. Short animations will also be showcased on behalf of Oh So Slow’s festival partner, Miyu Distribution, with titles like Hors de l’eau and The Ostrich Politic.
Friday the 17th of May will see The Slow’s gallery space of Room 13 bejewelled by photographic works courtesy of Matt Correia, a multi-talented segment of The Slow’s sound system, Reverberation Radio, curated by Allah-Las. Correia’s dateless collection of California coastal images nod to his nonchalant existence and surf infatuation. The night will be fittingly complimented with the cult music institution transmitting live at The Slow.
The festival’s final day, Saturday the 18th of May, will take place at Gimme Shelter, where live shows by Allah-Las and Reverberation Radio will wind back to the climax of Oh So Slow 2018.
Allah-Las is composed of Miles Michaud (vocals / rhythm guitar), Matthew Correia (drum / vocals), Pedrum Siadatian (lead guitar / vocals), and Spencer Dunham (bass / vocals). On the road, the band has built a dedicated following with extensive, sold-out tours and high profile festival dates.
We can likely expect tracks from their 2016 album, Calico Review, as well as Covers #1, which was recorded at the Pump House in Topanga Canyon and features renditions of George Harrison’s “Fish On The Sand,” Kathy Heideman’s “The Earth Won’t Hold Me”, and Television’s “Hard On Love,” an unreleased song from the band’s Marquee Moon recording sessions.
