And while those inside the pub will be revelling to the sounds of Sexbeat DJs, O Children and Caribou, among others, those outside will be able to enjoy the last in artist Jamie Brown’s series of venue-specific artworks, created for the tour.

Brown was commissioned by Beck’s through the Young Creative Network, and tasked with creating an art work on the exeterior of each of the venues, with each work to be inspired by a different song.

So Spanky Van Dykes in Nottingham was painted in reference to Chemical Love by Stevie Wonder and The Amersham Arms in London in reference to Star by the XX. Start the Bus in Bristol got a work inspired by I Got A Woman by Ray Charles, London’s Village Underground a work inspired by Missy Elliot’s Work it, and Bournemouth’s 60 Million Postcards a work inspired by Soundclash by Rack n’ Ruin.

Brown has just put the finishing touches (hopefully before the rains came) to his work on the exterior of the Lock Tavern, inspired by Moody by ESG.
