Upstairs @The Patrick Kavanagh Friday 1st July
19:30 – 23:00 The Patrick Kavanagh, Woodbridge Rd, Moseley, B13 8BX.
Horse Feathers, Dominic Crane, Giant Elf Fist, JD McElwee.
Horse Feathers’ influences; George Romero, Ennio Morricone and guitar bands give their songs that Spaghetti Western, moody, desert-like twang combined with Tex-Mex! and at times use Spanish lyrics. A 7 piece outfit comprising cello, percussion, keyboards and the de rigueur of bass, two guitars and drums.
Dominic Crane: with comparisons to Neil Finn, John Lennon & Squeeze, his songwriting style has earned him much praise from Janice Long, Boo Hewerdine, Sharon Corr, Nel Bryden….
Giant Elf Fist: part of Birmingham’s evolving underground Scene. Heavily influenced by the German Krautrock movement of the 70s.They recently supported Acid Mothers Temple as part of their world tour.
JD McElwee: Voice accompanied by his fluid guitar playing or a cappella his songs are simple, captivating and memorable. A soulful performer who gives his all and that includes some wry humour! “words forlorn and words as thorns, some words can act as balm. When dark birds circle overhead it’s love that keeps us strong.”
All these bands for just £6 on the door !
