• Happyness + Guests 17/10/14

    £6 Advance | 8pm Hot on the heels of the release of their acclaimed debut album ‘Weird Little Birthday’, South London slacker trio Happyness are plotting a course across the country in October. Having spent May on the road with Ezra Furman, appeared at Liverpool Sound City and Live At Leeds, and performing at Bestival, Secret Garden Party and Green Man among other summer Festivals, the band are set for what is sure to be their busiest tour yet. “There is absolutely no reason not to fall in love with this debut album, and if you come up with one, you're wrong.” – Sunday Times “it feels only a matter of time till this South London trio explode” – NME 8/10 “Happyness switch effortlessly between fuzzy pop and downcast, desolate, ballads… thrilling and charming” – The Guardian **** “A special band” – DIY “Weird Little Birthday oozes a woozy optimism that borders on the euphoric” - Loud & Quiet “it's difficult not to warm to any record that quotes Prefab Sprout's Cars And Girls in one breath and uses the word ‘phlebotomist’ in the next” - Q **** “Affectionate homage to the post-Grunge era” – Uncut 8/10 “One of the finest new bands on the face of this Earth” – Stereogum “They’ve got big ideas and big talent… Happyness could be ruling many a roost.” – The Line of Best Fit “Giddy yet brainy college rock” – Notion “Out of the haze, few really stand out but - given what we've heard thus far - Happyness might just be able to do that.” – Clash “Audacious and unforgettable… a must have” – Disorder "Characterful dulcet tunes we want to hear from a guitar band right now" – 405 “feel-good college rock bursting with youthful naivety” – Artrocker

  • Ruarri Joseph + Lily & Meg 12/11/14

    Doors: 10pm Tickets: £10 Advance -- Ruarri Joseph returns this Autumn with a new album ‘Brother’ (Pip Productions). The record, Ruarri’s fourth studio album to date, is a record inspired and propelled by ideas of friendship, relationships and family. Originally born in Edinburgh, the nomadic Joseph found his song- writing roots in the southwestern Pacific. A move to New Zealand, and the young Ruarri found himself coming of age in Dannevirke (population 6,000), an isolated, rural farming community. At 17 Joseph packed his suitcase and moved back to the UK and settled in London, where he released his debut album ‘Tales Of Grime and Grit’ through Atlantic Records. Shortly after he quit Atlantic in favour of independence and so in 2008, he formed his own label ‘Pip Productions’ through which all his subsequent LPs have been released. Inspired by Bob Dylan, the singer song-writer’s work has also earned him favourable comparisons to the chart-topping pop savvy sounds of Damian Rice and David Gray, artists which through no coincidence Joseph now shares management with. “One of our best songwriters and lyricists” – The Times “As wise as a 70 year old Johnny Cash” – NME “Genius…a breath of the freshest air” - Observer “Like a modern Cat Stevens” – Paolo Nutini “Stunning” – Claudia Winkleman, BBC Radio2
