A spectrum of musical styles with acclaim, musical reputation and potential for a night of entertainment and connecting. With a high quality, high volume response to Creative Lewisham’s call for artists with South London connections, there could have been two nights! (Some of the bands unable to play this night will be at the venue, it’s worth getting CDs/contacts from them).
Alongside the music industry insider’s panel attending, are various media/industry checking out what’s HAPPENING in South London. Between the shows, there’s much going on. Scouts and writers collecting music and tips from the night, and this evening at DIY central will also be documented (including rising stars of music photography; Rich Pack http://www.myspace.com/richpack and Jenny Hardcore http://www.myspace.com/jennyhardcore - DJs The Fairies, part of thriving New Cross story and recently back from wowing New York City ... http://www.thefairiesband.co.uk/ - and South East London’s arts/music/media family The Blue Light District http://www.thebluelightdistrict.com
Not just a chance to come and experience and support pro-active talent, to network and hang out, but also student union bar prices to boot! All in all, a bit of a big night out for South London.
