junius meyvant

Friday 13th – Júníus Meyvant, St Pancras Old Church, London – Tickets – Sold out!

It’s sure been a busy autumn for Icelandic artist Júníus Meyvant with loads of popular shows and words of praise from reviewers! He’s played his way into our hearts with his beautiful folk inspired songs, colourful arrangements, flowing voice and topping it off with a nice groove! We hope you’re one of the lucky ones with a ticket for the sold out show, but we’re sure he’ll be back soon if we ask nicely…


Saturday 14th – Kiasmos, Warehouse Project, Manchester – Tickets – Sold out!

Kiasmos – the ultimate combination of Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen and we’re not sure if it’s necessary to say more. The gig is sold out and for a good reason, this duo has impressed us beyond words with their experimental mixture of Ólafur Arnalds’ beautiful piano influences and Janus Rasmussen’s electronica, blended together with minimal techno and you’ve got a recipe for a party!
