MIMA are about to take their first steps into putting on music shows, and they’ve made such a wise and highly impressive choice in the first band to play the wonderful arts venue. The Burning Hell bring their quirky, twisted, introspective folk to the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art on Monday 23rd May.

The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom, who with his band has been almost constantly on the road since 2007; whether festivals, bars, living rooms, and on one special occasion a mental asylum in rural France, it’s a band who really know how to put on a show. A hyperactive, rock and roll energy flits in and out of a more folksy core for a sound that is really fascinating, intelligent and dangerously sharp. The gig is being brought together by The Waiting Room, and they’ve done a grand job in getting local favourites Dressed Like Wolves to bring their lo-fi folk sound along for the ride.

The Burning Hell and Dressed Like Wolves play MIMA on Monday 23rd May.
