‘A splendid arts series…’

by Jen Roberts on Jan.30, 2009, under Events, Roxy Rawson, Sophia Blackwell

Well, I have some good news and some bad news with regards our Behind The Mic shows. The bad news is that our beloved Soho Revue Bar ceased trading after last nights gigs so our Soho show is homeless. The good news is, Time Out love our radio shows…‘a splendid arts series’ they say! On the live show front, we’re back at The Library (Islington - Opposite Union Chapel) on the 19th February with Sound of Rum headlining. They were guests on our radio show last Monday and were brilliant! Kate Tempest is one hell of a rapper and the guitarist and drummer were not only lovely lads but highly skilled themselves.

Below’s the latest press release for the next few shows in the series…(NB it was too late to include this Mondays info but I can tell you we have the vampy performance poet Sophia Blackwell and singer songwriter Idan Rabinovici who’s recently supported Jose Gonzalez. http://www.myspace.com/idanrab )

Oh, I love the fact we have this Behind The Mic radio show. It was SUCH fun on Monday. Madam (Sukie Smith) and Tamsin Kendrick were lovely people and great performers. There was a wonderful atmosphere in the studio and many laughs. You can buy a copy of Tamsin’s new poetry book direct from the publishers website here. For details of where to buy Sukie’s latest album ‘In Case of Emergency’ see her MySpace. Next week we have Claire Tchaikowski and Jake Morley which will be very interesting indeed.

A few weeks ago I posted some pictures that I took from the making of Claire’s music video for the track ‘Undone’…she was working with brilliant abstract expressionist painter Anna Nightingale (whom I manage). Well, now I can provide you with a further taste of what’s to come. Here’s a 30 second trailer…
