The Pink Diamond Revue + The Arboretum – Launchpad Charity Gig

November 7 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

State of Flux present:
A fundraising night for the Reading based charity Launchpad which is Reading’s leading homelessness prevention charity, providing vital information and support for individuals, couples and families who don’t have a stable place to live or are at risk of losing their home. Founded as a soup kitchen in 1979 by students at the University of Reading, the charity now provides a holistic service to help vulnerable people in the town tackle their housing-related problems, obtain and sustain a long-term home and lead full and independent lives.

Featuring two original energetic and unique bands for a night of musical adventure whilst raising money for a worthwhile cause.


The Pink Diamond Revue:
“An audio-visual cinematic masterpiece more than just a live band, The Pink Diamond Revue feature surreal samples, stuttering guitars and renegade rhythms, blending sexy electro-psychedelia with hypnotic visuals. It’s a world where Kraftwerk meet sex and you find love.” The Vapour Trail, October 2018
This 3 piece Electro/Dance/Psych act from Reading fronted by Acid Dol, a mannequin from another dimension. The band’s stunning live shows have a massive crossover appeal and have gained them widespread critical acclaim.

Miss Lonely Hearts Video:


The Arboretum:
With dark dub bass lines and shimmering shoe-gaze guitars, The Arboretum combine stunning visuals with a rich cinematic Post-Rock sound. Exploring themes of post-industrial decline, eastern mysticism, environmental and urban renewal and a looming dystopian future where shadows fall on hope and love.
The Arboretum are a collaborative musical project driven by brothers Keith & Chris Trim with their trademark wall of sound, combining instrumental composition with lyrical layers for a Post Rock explosion of energy and noise.


The event is sponsored by Keysight Technologies UK Ltd, a locally based global provider of measurement solutions. Launchpad are Keysight’s chosen charity for sponsorship.
