On Monday October 9, Musos’ Guide will takeover the Finsbury, London for our leg of Blogtober. For the 31 nights of October, The Finsbury will host 31 gigs curated by a different music site each day. We’ll be bringing Dublin electro-rockers, Makings, Swansea’s Bandicoot and, their Welsh compatriots, Up Down Go Machine.
Makings 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.
Bandicoot are a punk-inspired indie band who play with the speed, scope, and fury of early Arctic Monkeys. They’ve supported Vant and are bust curated their own festival, 6Daze of Summer, in the Forum Basement (Sussex Arms). There’s still time to catch it and tickets are available here
Up Down Go Machine are also 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 on 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!
