LIVE MUSIC LISTINGS UPDATE – AUTUMN 2009

NEW SHOW ANNOUNCEMENTS

TUE 01 DEC
IAN BROUDIE (Lightning Seeds) & JAMES WALSH (Starsailor)
Our big new announcement is that we shall be welcoming a very special double-headline show on Tuesday 1st December with IAN BROUDIE of The Lightning Seeds and JAMES WALSH of Starsailor.

Ian Broudie is a prolific musician and producer (for The Coral and The Zutons) and leader of The Lightning Seeds, famed for their hits Pure, The Life Of Riley, Lucky You, You Showed Me and Three Lions. Starsailor’s songs have always been awash with timeless, perfectly sculpted melodies – all underpinned by James Walsh’s fragile, soaring vocals.

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! Their debut single ‘Vanity Kills’ is out on November 23rd through the legendary Island Records, with the album to follow.

NEW ALBUM SHALL BE AVAILABLE ON SPOTIFY FROM MON 16 NOV

LIVE MUSIC HIGHLIGHTS AT THE GLEE IN THE NEXT 7 DAYS

SUN 01 NOV – LAST FEW SPACES
ADRIAN EDMONDSON & THE BAD SHEPHERDS (classic punk tracks in a folk persuasion!)

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.
