MOSES are a global secret, armed with what sound like greatest hits, and the showmanship to perform them.

Seeds of a MOSES choir, Nov.’19, by Mike Rădulescu

With over five million streams in eighteen months of seasonal releases, tonight begins a big year which opens with next single, ‘Who Needs The Money?’ (Anti Fragile) sounding like an instant classic, again.

MOSES gigs are escapist, uplifting parties with a welcoming community. Bring your voices ( video; with their “choir”, joyfully at the previous gig.

Double bubble!

THE RILLS are extravagant undercards of Britain’s post-punk pyro powered sub-culture, taking inspiration from Shame’s melodic guitar lines, the twisted poetry of The Murder Capital and John Cooper Clarke plus the humour of like minded artists such as FEET and IDLES. Their tune,‘The Critic’, is relateable to many of our friends.

The Rills play landmark shows, like uber cred new space, Werkhaus. They supported The Blinders on their For The Many tour in December, which is part of this documentary.

Fresh from festivals like 2Q Lincoln, radio support by BBC Introducing and numerous independents, The Rills release their next single in Spring.

“Everything is at ease when you’re being interviewed by the amazing Louise Schofield.” (MOSES) 

Last Summer, our interview article remarked that Louise Schofield “fizzes with the essence of an Entertainment Supergrrrrl.” and that “You know you’re probably at the right event, if her friendly energy is helping to light it up.”

Hard working tech and media instigator, via her YouTube channel and Unique Lullaby music blog, Louise has conducted over 200 artist interviews at myriad gigs/festivals.

She also presents at BBC, National Film Awards (backstage reporting with Idris Elba and Jo Brand), Green Man Festival, Festival No.6 (for BBC Radio Wales), Liverpool Sound City, The Great Escape, Swn Festival) etc.

A writer, comedian and actor who regularly creates content for online channel – BBC SESH… Louise is our host for the evening.


Plot: DIY sociable media + Document x Affordable entry x share income = Real time crowd funding.

Background; Consistent Future Picks radar. Our first Music People Party DJ (Katie Owen, 2017) presented two December 2019 shows on Radio 1. The Velvet Hands, who played live that year, supported Liam Gallagher (who recommends another of our contributors, journalist Susan Hansen) and Paul Weller in 2019. We recommend potential.

Magick: This venue has the words HOPE and ANCHOR. Zeenager themes.

Likened to “the London CBGBs”, this basement is a mecca for music fans.

Home to Joy Division’s London debut and Keane’s first gig, alumni include Stiff Records, The Damned, X-Ray Spex, The Specials, The Clash, Steel Pulse, The Cure, The Jam, Madness, Adam And The Ants, The Pogues, The Only Ones, Squeeze, The Police, XTC, Ramones (plus that infamous two men, one dog, U2 gig!)

seeya soon?
