Thursday Howff with DOCMA, Optimo and Dextro
howff /haʊf/. A favourite meeting place or haunt, especially a pub.
Welcome to the Howff, Bella’s boozer for the cultural void and your lounge for the lockdown. We are featuring and promoting artists and musicians who are now gigless cos of da virus. As everyone tries to move live events online and survive the domestic incarceration. Each night we feature a different artist and put up a bunch of other stuff.
We kick off with Docma – an international series of short films made in the lockdown.
“5 filmmakers, 5 documentary styles, 1 film”. We’ll showcase one collection a night. Thanks to Anne Milne.
Keith McIvor from Optimo writes: “I have released a Bandcamp only EP today with 100% of proceeds going to support food banks in Glasgow. Every penny raised here will go directly to helping provide food to people who are struggling, so if you are able to help it would be greatly appreciated.”

The Glasgow artist Ewan Mackenzie known as Dextro (genre: ‘Celestial transportation’) has issued this video to accompany Part I of the new release ‘An Hour is a Sea’.
Mackenzie writes: “Hopefully this can provide a window into the natural world and some of the headspaces that we can’t readily access right now. You can get the LP and Pay What You Want for the DL at Bandcamp here.
