listenup137

Listen Up! explores the Canterbury Scene with the music of the freewheeling British bands of the post-psychedelic era that emerged from the quiet cathedral city of Canterbury, England. We will also remember Daevid Allen , a key figure in that scene and sound, who passed away this week.
