On Thursday 9th Sept – Mark Oswin from X’s & O’s and Marcus Perry from Mathieson are coming into the studio to play some live music and have a chat about their big night when both of the bands are playing the Karova Lounge on Saturday 11th Sept. We’re looking forward to a great show with plenty of fantastic music and laughs. Get on down to the gig on Saturday, it’ll be a corker!!
Then on Thursday 16th Sept we will see the very talented Juan Alban, former lead singer and guitarist of Epicure join us to play live and have a yarn about all things musical, and not. He has just recorded his first solo EP, so listen in for what will be a great opportunity to hear his new material before the EP is launched at the Northcote Social Club on the 16th of October. Who knows, we might be able to convince him to play some old Epicure songs as well, we can’t wait!!
