MON 07 DEC
CODEINE VELVET CLUB (Jon Lawler – Fratellis)
Codeine Velvet Club – a new outfit from Jon Lawler of The Fratelli’s – which exudes a Sixties-inspired sound that’s equal parts Phil Spector’s teenage symphonies and John Barry’s sharp 007 soundtracks shall be with us on December 7th!

WED 04 NOV
MARK EITZEL (American Music Club)
+ Franz Nicolay (The Hold Steady)
New album Klamath out now. Written and recorded in a log cabin in the middle of the woods by the Klamath river, California. The pastoral, laid back, late night sparse feel to the album harkens back to Eitzel’s folk influences of Nick Drake and John Martyn and earlier work with AMC. “It’s gorgeous and every bit as good as those early American Music Club records” THE INDEPENDENT

Mark has previously been awarded ‘Songwriter Of The year’ and ‘Album Of The Year’ by Rolling Stone magazine. American Music Club played a wonderful show at The Glee in support of their highly acclaimed ‘The Golden Age’ album. We hear Mark shall also be bringing another CD available to buy at shows.
