Tim Brooks – 7:30pm
Tim Brooks is a singer songwriter from London
Taking equal influence from classic artists such as Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, to more modern examples such as Brian Fallon and Chris Cornell, Tim Brooks combines passionate, emotive lyrics, alongside raspy, high energy vocals.
Having performed at Stone Free Festival (headlined by Yes and Scorpions) at the O2 Arena in London, and supported Will Varley (Xtra Mile Records) in Poznan in 2018, as well as having appeared twice on both Balcony TV and Sofar Sounds, Tim Brooks has released three singles so far in 2019, and has embarked on a UK tour (supporting Polish artist Peter J Birch), as well as shows in Belgium, Holland, Ireland, Slovenia and Germany.
Currently, he is in the process of recording an upcoming three track EP, with further shows in both the UK and Europe scheduled for the remainder of the year.
Madame So – 9pm
Her music is best described as lyric-led guitar pop and has been likened to Blondie, Hole, Patti Smith and PJ Harvey, while her influences range from The Only Ones to Kurt Vile via The Vaccines and Wolf Alice, among many others.
Madame So has been featured in the likes of Afro-Punk as making ?sincerely bizarre but bizarrely catchy indie pop?, in Rockinglicious as ?bringing a throwback to Hole and Polaris, with her own tint of lyrics and a voice smooth like melting sugar?, profiled in Supajam as “staying true to the nineties guitar sound rather than miming the seventies like a lot of on trend bands”; music writer Andy Vale (BBC, Supajam, This is Fake DIY) says “Madame So makes a real honest style of scuzzy pop, melodies delivered with a snarl…” , and my songs ‘Sell-by Date’ and ‘Camden Scene’ have very recently enjoyed some airplay on Gary Crowley’s BBC Introducing show.
Mohair Collective – 10:30pm
Named after the Charlie Rich song, ‘Mohair Sam’, this female fronted
6 piece band are the “Hippies happenin’ all over town”, playing a
