Our weekly Wednesday 'People are Strange' night hosted by James Tait has a great line up this week with....
PISTOLA KICKS - LOS PEPE/ACOUSTIC SESSION (11pm onwards)
"After recently delivering several very well received introductions to Pistola Kicks "Los Pepe" sessions the band will be returning to home ground to play an intimate set in Sheffield's cosy Green Room...These [Los Pepe] sessions have seen the band perform in accompaniment of their in house string section in delivering different approaches on conveying both specia...lly written material and regular set fillers." More information on the band's own event page for the night. http://www.facebook.com/pistolakicks...01473153206035
FRAN SMITH (about 10:15pm - 10:45pm)
Up-and-coming singer/song writer coming all the way from Wakey to perform a set of her wonderfully crafted songs for us, here's what Karine Polwart recons:
"...it’s really exciting to discover a songwriting talent as intelligent and insightful as Fran Smith... who knows how to sing her own stories with such conviction and grace."
- Karine Polwart
EMILIE MARIE ABRAHAM (about 09:30pm - 10pm)
Charming, talented and slightly quirky (if she doesn't mind me saying so) Sheffield based singer/song writer who on the strength of her first demo was invited to perform on BBC RAW Talent. Her last set at PAS was delivered with such confidence and professionalism that we thought we'd invite her back.
DR. CHRIS (before, in between, and after each performance)
Spinning an audible Smörgåsbord (cheers QI!) of genres from everyone's favourite decade. Expect sunshine pop, psychedelia, sixties beat, french pop, motown, ska, northern soul, art rock, avante garde and countless quirks and wonders.
Hope to see you there. Keep it strange.
