Brockley Central Presents at The Ladywell Tavern, next Thursday 4th June

As already mooted by Brockley Nick last week, we'll be holding a Brockley Central drinks night with a difference next Thursday 4th June, as part of this year's Brockley MAX festival. We've also pulled a few strings and lined up some great bands, each unique, but sure to gel well with a common acoustic/folky/bluesy sound.

Brockley Central Presents, in no particular order:

Skinny Lister


Skinny ListerSkinny Lister make finger-picking good folk music, and are already the next big thing, having been featured on BBC6 Music. A side-project for two members of band The Alps, and some talented friends, the press blurb talks of folk dancing hand-in-hand in the English countryside - sounds like every weekend on Hilly Fields, so we reckon they'll be right at home. The line-up will be even skinnier than usual for our night, so that we can fit them into the Tavern. www.myspace.com/skinnylister

Dune Lake


Dune LakeRegulars on the Lewisham circuit, Dune Lake make music with blues and country influences - "jazzy gorgeousness", as one blogger recently described them.

Louise & Irene


Louise & IreneSisters Louise & Irene play the good old deep south blues, complete with steel guitar.

Rob Marr


Rob MarrWe first came across Rob playing with his former band The Hands at the Brockley Max finale in 2005. We enjoyed it so much we thought we'd ask him along to our first Max night. His debut album has been proclaimed "simple, brilliant British pop", and he's played the Roundhouse. Now he comes to Brockley... er, Ladywell.

A tip-top line up, we hope you'll agree, and thanks to the artists and the venue, this is all yours for nothing. We aim to start things off about 8 o'clock. Come along, bring your mates, talk about Brockley and the various ups and downs of a community blog, or just forget about all that and enjoy some great music.

Cool! Real buzz in Ladywell this year for the Brockley Max. I feel the Ladywell Tavern is going to have a very good festival. Keep a keen eye on the Sunday aftershow following the classical concert on Hilly Fields.

No one should feel under any obligation to talk about blogs at any point in the evening.

Thanks to Jon for pulling this together, to the Ladywell Tavern for providing the venue and to the musicians for playing.

Hoping to see as many of you as possible.

Headhunter said...

This sounds good, will certainly aim to be there! Who else is going?

All the very best with that, I may be there anonymously so please don't approach strangers dressed for the "Village People lookalike reunion" which occurs in the Ladywell tavern on the same night.

Headhunter said...

Really? And I was just thinking I would wear my Village People cowboy suit that night.

Mezzer said...

Well done in getting this organised!

Tyrwhitt Michael said...

I hope to be there but may have to travel incognito especially as my route goes down Vicars Hill...

Will try and drag along a few Talbot Refugees.

M said...

Sounds good - I'll be there.
What with this, the Tank Gallery and Oscars it makes me wonder - is Ladywell the new Brockley?

Brockley Kate said...

Thought we settled this ages ago - Ladywell is part of Greater Brockley, aka the Glorious People's Republic of SE4.

(I'll be there too, by the way).

Wolfie said...

Freedom for Ladywell!

There's no logic in the council wards. We live on Tressillian Road. We used to be in Crofton Park ward, in spite of not living in Crofton Park. Now we're in Ladywell ward, in spite of not living in Ladywell either.

Headhunter said...

No one wants to be in Ladywell, it's like North Koreans flooding over the border into South Korea.

Osh said...

I've been checking out their myspace pages - some great stuff lined up, thanks guys.

I'm planning on coming!

We detonated a nuclear device earlier in the week, and popped off a couple of ballistic missiles - just to show our strength you understand. We've even got a few crusties goose-stepping up and down Vicars Hill.

We will annex Brockley shortly and crush you twittering classes beneath the heels of our well-cobbled jack-boot. (Crofton Park cobblers already under our control)

Ladywell and proud :)We do have a bit of an identity crisis in Ladywell, being a mish mash of SE4 and SE13 postcodes.

Really pleased that the Tavern and Tank Gallery are playing a big role in this year's Brockley Max and hope to pop along to this on the 4th once all our electioneering is over and done with.

Richard Elliot said...

Very upset I won't be able to make it.

I live in Ladywell but don't have an identity crisis. Should I vote next time for a councillor who has an identity crisis?

It's perfectly clear where the boundaries of Ladywell are.

Westsider said...

Should you not vote for a councillor on the basis of light-hearted and well-meaning comments made on a blog, where she plays an active and welcome role?

Brockley Kate said...

You should video-link in from Oz, Richard ...

Thanks sonofagun. Big day tomorrow with the Opening night, and do check out the website as there are several events which didn't make it on to the printed programme. Huge thanks to everyone who helped make it happen this year. I'm off to bed as I've got to be up at 6.30am to put the barriers across Foxberry Road. Roll on B Max!

Good luck tonight – I will see you around 9pm. Mr Lawrence’s was excellent last night with Daisy Granger, and busy, worth checking out her myspace.
