In just under a weeks’ time, Musos’ Guide will take over the Finsbury, London for our leg of Blogtober. For the 31 nights of October, The Finsbury is hosting 31 gigs curated by a different music site each day. We’ll be bringing Dublin electro-rockers, Makings, Up Down Go Machine from Wales, and local London upstarts Black Cheroot.
Makings [http://www.makingsmusic.com/] raised eyebrows in 2015 with their debut album, Cognition, which they made with legendary producer, Chris Potter (The Verve, The Rolling Stones). You can download the whole album for free here. They’re no strangers to London having played the Proud Camden on their last tour. They’ve since played storming sets at Vantastival and Swell Festival, and their live set has to be seen to be believed.
Rooted in RnB, yet sprung from the more eclectic sounds of heavy rock/pop music. Black Cheroot use these foundations to create grooves, that sometimes roll smooth, and then at once, turn into a raw nerve of barely contained passion and expression.
Up Down Go Machine are from Wales but based in London. The acoustic indie folk quartet formed in 2012 and played the BBC Introducing Stage at SO Festival. They’ve been compared to Ben Howard, Tom Grennan and Samuel Jack, and should get the night off to a cracking start.
Come down, join us, and say hello to your favourite writers in the Finsbury next Monday, October 9. RSVP here, and ensure you are signed for a free ticket for free entry because we can only squeeze so many of you in!
