Sad House Daddy presents Bottles Of Blues "Beast From The Easter Bonanza" at Biddle Bros! Come and celebrate the start of the long weekend with a brilliant night of live bands, featuring:
8:15pm THE THIS
Made up of members of The Yes Mess and Rasputin's Lunchbox, The This are Steve Forbes on vocals, guitar and drums, Jill Frost on accordion and Laura Kirby on vocals, guitar and drums. This recently formed trio offers an eclectic set of hook-laden and infectious folk-pop.
9:00pm OSCAR MIC
Oscar Mic is Seamus Hayes, former frontman of power pop rockers The New Infection now flying solo with just “one mic, one guitar, a bag full of magic and a mouth like an 808... Ed Sheeran's abusive uncle, the Salvador Dali of rap 'n' roll!” Unlikely, uncontrollable, lyrical and lovable, live looping, beatboxing Oscar stepped out for the first time in early 2017 and played the Where The Wild Things Are stage at the last ever Secret Garden Party last Summer.
“Seamus Hayes has an innate ability to write really catchy pop songs” – John Kennedy, XFM
Tonight marks only the second ever gig by new London Motörhead-like power trio Stragglers!
Deafbirds are Nick, Nick, Simon, Angus and Dan, five East Londoners each with a deep underlying passion for rock music. Delivering sonic bass lines, gymnastic drumming, soulful keys and battling guitars, Deafbirds' sound is a riveting mix of punk, indie, pop and rock 'n' roll.
11.15pm ERNIE & LUKE
Friends Ernie Martin and Luke Fabia hail from Devon and Buckinghamshire respectively and share a passion for the Jamaican music of reggae, ska, rocksteady and dancehall from the 1960s to the present day. With acoustic guitar, trumpet and vocal harmonies, Ernie and Luke perform classic songs by the likes of Prince Buster, Jimmy Cliff, Desmond Dekker and Toots & The Maytals.
