The biggest ever Brockley Max festival is less than a week away. Whilst this means some great free music and art events with a healthy dose of community spirit, it also means we have work to do, as the second ever Brockley Central music night is almost upon us!
Our contribution to the festival will take place on Thursday 3rd June, once again at the excellent Ladywell Tavern. Whilst the finer details are still being tweaked, we can promise you a cracking line up:
Tracey's Love play upbeat 80s influenced indiepop, and formed from "an unhealthy obsession with Belle & Sebastian" (nothing wrong with that). They're playing the O2 Islington Academy this Friday, so we think we're in good company. For our night, the band are playing a stripped down acoustic set - a bit more fitting for the Tavern's somewhat intimate stage area.
Andrea is a Brockley-based jazz performer with a smoky "late night" vocal style, who sings classic jazz, bossa nova, and chilled re-interpretations of pop tracks. Andrea is stopping by to do a low-key solo set on the piano (she has a busy week - you can also see her at the Wickham this Saturday 29th with acclaimed local jazz guitarist Dave Colton, and also solo at The Talbot on Monday 31st).
The Madding Crowd
Never knowingly pigeon-holed, south London based The Madding Crowd describe themselves as a mash-up of British blues, rock'n'roll, shoegaze, electro & punk. This hottly tipped unsigned band look set to win the song names competition hands-down, with titles such as 'Oi, Oi I'm Gordon Brown', 'Birds 'n' Booze', and 'Pass me The Butter, Dear'.
So come join us on Thursday 3rd June!
From 7pm until Monty tells us to go home
