So tomorrow night I'm putting on a gig.
It's a new regular gig showcase I'm trying to put together, and as I'm still new to putting on gigs in London, I'm making this next one FREE ENTRY TO ALL DISERS. You just need to PM me and I'll stick you on the guestlist.
So here's the gig: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=251398291554295
MK-47 SHOWCASE! TUESDAY AUGUST 16th, The Macbeth (Hoxton Street), 7.30-late. £3 Entry (FREE TO DISERS). Featuring:
POLAROID 85 - 7-piece trip-hop/post-rock orchestral/electronic loveliness (a bit like Portishead, Cinematic Orchestra, Bonobo)
www.polaroid85.com (FREE EP to download from there)
NATALIE McCOOL - Awesome alternative pop singer-songwriter, "Extraordinary; all original; able to calm the most disorderly of minds"
Video for new single Black Sun http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4xtkzL6fHQ
SOLAR STATE - 'Dream-pop, folktronica' trio, creating a unique hybrid of strings, bleeps, and heart-melting harmonies. (a bit like Sigur Ros, Fever Ray, Massive Attack etc)
MWEN - "In her music, you can detect influences ranging from the skittering female-centred rhythms of The Slits and The Raincoats; the bleak, bewitched emoting of Portishead's Beth Gibbons; the otherworldliness of Björk; the fire of Nina Simone, as well as more contemporary electronic sounds."
If you're about, and fancy some excellent free music, drop me a note and get involved!
