Brighter Later Presents....
Brighter Later is a series of stripped down and intimate gigs at The Boogaloo to raise money for charity. This one is for Cancer Research UK. We aim to give you that warm fuzzy feeling while presenting you with our favourite new artists. Here's who we've got lined up for our very first show:
Thursday 8th April 2010 @ The Boogaloo, Highgate (7pm-1am)
Bethia Beadman began playing music in West Country pubs and on the bandstand bill at Glastonbury. She has been in Courtney Love’s band and in psychedelic, folk rock band Circulus. She has sung in St. Peter’s Basilica, The Vatican Rome and is now recording her first album with Mike Bennett and Co. including Mark Refoy from Spiritualised. See her live and you'll fall for her as much as we have.
THE TRAIN CHRONICLES
Solo set by Martin Brignall, an alt folk singer/songwriter who draws influence from a huge variety of sources, including Captain Beefheart, Lonnie Donegan and Bad Brains.
WHALES IN CUBICLES
Whales In Cubicles are a brand new band from London. They play majestic indiepop with a sophisticated yet blistering sonic edge. Citing influences as diverse as Jonathan Richman, Elliot Smith and Tom Waits, they are not to be missed.
The Semaphore sound is solidly underpinned by Louis Brennan’s unmistakable deep, dark and gravel lined baritone that hints maturity far beyond his years. They grew from roots of blues, up through the bedrock of sorrowful story telling with a galvanizing country growl.
The fabulous ClubRees DJ's, hosts of a legendary night at central London's premier indie disco The Fly, will also be spinning the decks and kicking out the jams.
As if that wasn’t enough, The Boogaloo is now home to one of those beautiful old fashioned photo booths, where you get a strip of 4 different black and white photos. Smile!
The night will start at 7pm with the first of the night’s bands to follow soon after.
Tickets are £5 and are available here, with limited availabilty on the door.
All money raised from ticket sales will go to Cancer Research UK to help them continue their amazing work.
See you there,
Brighter Later x
