Shows

As of December 2016, we will sadly not be putting on any more direct Home Normal events for a little while. We've been able to put on (both ourselves and with friends) over 60 shows in 7 years. As anyone who organises such events without any sponsorship or financial support will know, these things are beautifully connected experiences, a huge amount of fun, but thoroughly exhausting and financially draining. We have been able to just about get by the past year with the kindness of artists donating music for small CD(r) releases to help fund these events, but with Ian and Lee's move to Warsaw we just felt it was too much to carry on with the shows as we have done in any configuration, be it in Japan, Europe, the UK, or even friends organising related events in the USA. It just wouldn't be right to do this without Ian, Ben, and Lee who have worked tirelessly to host these amazing events.

Thank you to everyone involved in any capacity for your support. It has been a great few years. We will no doubt be putting on shows at some point in the future but for now the realities of everyday life beckon.

Here's a little previous blurb about our shows:

About HN shows:

We regularly put on shows in the UK and Japan, as well as affiliate shows in the US and across Europe. In the summer of 2013 we put on a 2 day festival of music and film with artists from the USA and Europe called Home Normalism, getting write ups in Time Out, The Wire, national and local press, and loads more. We have worked with organisations to bring artists to our shows such as the Czech Centre of London, and have run some very successful tours with a great selection of music.

Often we work with Hibernate RecordsIsnaj Dui, and Antony Harrison (Paco Sala) to put on shows in the UK. In Japan we work with closely with Flau Records, the CMFLG crew, and Wataru (the owner of Hz Records). We typically only put on shows by invite but if you feel you would like to contact us regarding hosting an event or series of events, or to perform at one of ours in some capacity, please contact Ian or Wataru below:

If you would like to organise events for any of our artists please feel free to contact us and we will happily put you in touch with them directly or their promoters. Many of our artists regularly tour so the golden rule is to contact as soon as possible to book them in.

Due to a recent move we won't be putting on any shows until after summer, but we will be remotely collaborating in shows in Japan still during this period.

Below are just a few photos from shows we have organised, co-organised, and our artists have been involved in. Special thanks to Andrej Chudy for his wonderful Cafe Oto images. There have been and continue to be so many people involved in our events we just can't thank them all enough.

Thank you
