On Thursday 17th, way out west in Penzance, the Astray collective present 'From Shadows', a bespoke Xmas celebration from the finest frontiers of film, music, snowboarding and waveriding.
The night kick starts with a full blast 30 minute headlong dive into Irelands heaviest waves, with local riders like Tom Lowe, and Jack Johns all starring in 'From Shadows' the first amping release from Astray films.
The evenings action then takes a serious turn toward the realm of incredible cinematics, with the South West premiere of 'Lives Of The Artists' from Relentless energy. This dark yet ultimately uplifting piece examines the lives of Cornish and Irish waveriders, freeride snowboarder Xavier De Le Rue, and hardcore punk band Gallows. The locations are just as impressive as the content, comparing the bone crushing might of the infamous Teahupoo, the isolated intimidating beauty and danger of Greenlands mountains, and the stark grind of the warped tour through America.
After a brief moments reflection over a drink after the film credits fade, the night swings full blast into party mode, with Dave Spenceley (Sir Vinyl of the Fattest) battling for the crowds attention, and firing things up on the dancefloor ready for the highly anticipated return of STRAYS. This bands last Cornish appearance was an acclaimed headline performance at the Greenaway pro Guildhall after party in St Ives back in September, and now the creative mix of Mancunians and Cornishman will lead the night into the early hours through an intense journey of dark edgy rock and roll.
