Yellow Cake 91

Pouya Mahmoudi + Abdi Behravanfar + NoName Trio + Amin Dehnavi (March 2011) 

Most people love cake, it tastes good, it’s satisfying. But yellow cake isn’t just any old cake made of flour and sugar; it’s ingredients are radioactive and of epic proportions. Yellow cake tends to prompt historic moments, so join us this Charshanbeh Soori for a line up that promises to amount to an explosive evening of music, film and visual art from the best of the Uranium – sorry – Iranian alternative scene. Don’t expect to leave as you arrived… Let’s get radioactive!

– Music:
Abdi Behravanfar
