Bardo’s Electric Love Cabinet


One-time special concert with sound and lights by Pure Tech AV

Chase Valentin (aka Bardo) first appeared onstage at Theatr Gwaun in the Summer of 2018 hosting our Rocky Horror night as the gender neutral Vladmira-Mira Onderval. The last time was just a few days before lockdown in March 2020, delivering a celebration of David Bowie songs. The rest of the year was a write-off, and with musicians and those involved in the live event industry short on work, he moved to create employment as soon as possible.

The result is his Electric Love Cabinet, an energetic exploration of enigmatic love songs by the likes of Janis Joplin, Nina Simone, Radiohead, Amy Winehouse, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Prince. He is joined by Emma Leeke on keyboards, Will Hughes on guitars and Sasha Chapman-Macleod on support vocals and midi. For the special debut of this set, sound and lighting is supplied and manned by Pure Tech AV.

Valentin describes his (not-so-far removed) alter-ego Bardo, as a “flamboyant old libertine who knocks out art rock and dark cabaret”. One thing’s for certain, whatever dish he’s planning to serve, it’ll certainly be colourful. Don’t miss it!
