The Positive Experience
The Positive Experience returns with a fresh zingy set prepared over the last two years of the madness that is the world now.
This is a fundraising event, gathering funds to help support the Ukrainian family of the keyboardist Artem, who are being affected by the war in Ukraine. The proceeds will be split 50/50 between his family and the Humanitarian Volunteer Centre of Odesa (hvc.org.ua), who are helping refugees and humanitarian aid missions within Ukraine.
The Positive Experience are an experimental indie band fronted by genderpunk poet and MC Lady Incarnate (Bam Jam). They are a band that hold groove and message in equally high regard and have become a strong figure of Edinburgh’s underground.
The band formed in December 2018 for a one-off performance to fundraise for Edinburgh’s beloved Forest Cafe. However, they continued performing together and have appeared in support of multiple causes including Glasgow’s “Stansted 15” solidarity concert, Extinction Rebellion protests, Project Play and Edinburgh Girls Rock School, Eden 2019 festival and 42 Degrees 2021, as well as a featured record on the ‘Love Music Hate Racism’ compilation album. Currently, they are preparing to perform at the upcoming Kelburn Garden Party and to record their first studio EP. The band members hail from all over the globe and they approach songwriting with a method of improvisation and collaboration. These pan-global influences shine through in their raucous live sets, ranging from cutting and insightful spoken word to dream-rock, funk, soul and live hip hop.
