It may seem that May will soon be upon us, but Glasswerk London will be hosting another 16 bands before the month is out. And let’s face it, if you don’t see any of them, well that’s pretty poor. I mean, honestly…
BUT the good news is I’m not going to bore you with all the details here. We have fancy new gig preview pages on the site, so I’ll just give you a few clues and teasers, then point you in the right direction.
Talking of the site, keep checking out link in the next few weeks, because some really exciting changes are on the way. Especially good news if you are in a band as you will have even more opportunities to get your name out.
Ermm… what else is happening here at Glasswerk? Oh yes, website editor Jack Cook has a couple more openings for journalists so if you fancy yourself as a writer, and have a penchant for free CDs and gig tickets, then contact him at mail.
Glasswerk’s ever expanding team of London promoters has a whole load of summer dates ready to be filled, at venues including Camden’s Purple Turtle, and our second home Upstairs at the Garage. We have a fair idea of who we want for the headline slots, but if you wish to be considered, please email mail with your band name, where you’re from, telephone number, website, genre, and some band info (where you’ve played and who with etc). Also please let me know what you already have planned for July and August.
Anyway, back to April…
Tues April 19th – Upsairs at Garage
One of the strongest line-ups in a long time. Chuck Farley are a stunning live spectacle, while The Capes and Kandinski have been keeping A & R departments busy for months. Suddenly Vince are rising stars – Glasswerk recently put them on a mini-tour of the South East.
Thurs April 21st – Upstairs at Garage
My Lost Soul
Pecks Bad Boy
Two gigs in one night… should keep us busy. Four great London bands, all guaranteed to give a great live performance.
Thurs April 21st – Purple Turtle
“Outbreak” faves Delta Chi and Blind Jackson are joined by Glasswerk debutants but no less talented guitar outfits The Distance and The Faculty.
Thurs April 28th – Downstairs at Garage
65 Days of Static
I Had an inkling
Widely regarded as one of the most exciting and innovative new bands of 2004, 65 Days of Static come to London as part of their national tour.
Well that just about wraps it up. Hope to see you all there. X4
