KICK THE PLUG NOVEMBER 3RD 2010 – SHADY BARD + LISBONNE + JAMIE LEY
October 20, 2010, 2:04 pm
Filed under: Jamie Ley, Lisbonne, Shady Bard

Aside from being able to access chocolate apples a whole TWO days before fireworks night, we’ll also be putting on some musical fireworks of our own (geddit it’s a theme!):

Tickets available from here:
http://www.wegottickets.com/event/97318

SHADY BARD
http://www.myspace.com/shadybard
http://bit.ly/facebook-shadybard

We’ve been after these guys for a while and frankly we’re very excited especially as they’ve just released their wonderful new album ‘Trials’

Trials’ is the second album by shady bard, released on October 11th and preceded by the double download release of ‘Trials (Part III)’/’Daphne’. With tracks from their debut having already featured in US TV dramas such as Grey’s Anatomy, the band return with a new record filled with cinematic instrumentation and symphonic pop songs.

If you don’t want to just take my word for it here’s what some other people have to say:

“A band it would be easy to fall in love with…dazzling.” The Sunday Times

“Delicate songs…cracked hope…a marvel” Channel 4

“The spoken word symphonies of iLiKETRAiNS and the evocative harmonies of Low…A record that becomes more engaging with every listen.” 9/10 Drowned in Sound

JAMIE LEY
http://www.myspace.com/jamieleymusic

Playing a solo show for us, Jamie Ley’s alt folk sounds have gained him a steady fan base since his 1st show back in December 2008. He has been featured on Radio 1’s BBC introducing, Xfm’s Xposure & magazines Dazed and Confused and The Fly have this to say about him:

“Pure perfection in a neat, melodious bundle” – The Fly Magazine

“Part of the Communion collective of vagabond musicians that has included Mumford and Sons and Jay Jay Pistolet, one listen to songs such as ‘Morning Smile’, ‘Goodbye’ or ‘Suzy Sang’ reveals that he is in the same league as his contemporaries” – Dazed and Confused

LISBONNE
http://www.myspace.com/lisbonne

Ever wondered what music tigers dance to? Look no further! Lisbonne is the musical alias of singer/songwriter marie m, a french girl exiled in London, who when not on tour with her band Monade, writes dreamy pop songs in her bedroom. The perfect soundtrack for sunny afternoons laying in the sun.



KICK THE PLUG OCTOBER 6TH 2010 – RUE ROYALE + ROZI PLAIN + CATRIONA IRVING

Filed under: Catriona Irving, Rozi Plain, Rue Royale

Roll up, roll up, here’s the line-up for the October Kick The Plug. Now, you’re probably thinking to yourself: I like Rue Royale, but then I also like Rozi Plain, and on the other hand I like Catriona Irving too. But which one is best? And is there only one way to find out?

It’s certainly food for thought, and while you’re pondering about it why not come and watch them all play on October 6th at the Wilmington Arms?
