The fantastic Kill for Company played to a packed out Ruby Lounge, Manchester, in support of PINS on Friday for BBC Introducing, massive gig for them so well done to Kill for Company and PINS. The BBC 6Music Festival at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester was a success, of what we have heard. We had a night at The Dulcimer in Chorlton on Thursday which was a great turnout and great performances by all bands. Thanks to Ben McEwan, Bells in The Birches and Rachel Rimmer. Also, Lee Crawford has done a short blog on the First Heat of the Last Band Standing. It can be viewed here Lee Crawford Photography Blog: Last Band Standing @ The Roadhouse 200213. We are hosting our own Acoustic Stage at this year’s Headlander Festival on 21st and 22nd June which is very exciting. On Tuesday we met Headlander to discuss how it will be setup, we all look forward to seeing you there!
Reuben Hester went to the big wheel in Piccadilly Gardens on Tuesday to play live in one of the booths, the performance was filmed by Channel MBC. Channel MBC have now finished there documentary on the label, “Looking for Longevity”, in which they have done a great job and is now available to view here so go and watch it and you can all meet us (apart from me though, I didn’t make the final cut)… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sevPVQHilo&sns=fb
Leonardo Di Caprio missed out on an Oscar once again with Matthew McConaughey taking the Best Actor Award, did he deserve it? Gravity, a partly British made film won 7 Oscars which is very impressive and always good to see unless your Leo di Caprio. Ellen DeGeneres did a good job hosting this year, not as brutal as Ricky Gervais but that’s probably why he’s not hosting this year.
In music news, The Horrors have released and played live at the NME Awards there new single ‘I see you’ which is their first single from new album ‘Luminous’. If it’s anything like there last one well then were in for a treat. Alex Turner’s speech at the NME awards was a lot quieter than the Brits one, thankfully. They won 4 band awards including Best British Band, Best Album, Best Live Band and Best Fan Community. Well done to the Arctic Monkeys, well deserved. Our own band The Harrington Blues have recently announced more upcoming gigs, firstly they will be playing at the Zombie Hut in Corby on the 15th of March, The Corn Exchange in Stamford on the 22nd and The Swan with Two Necks on the 11th April.
