Bank Holiday Weekend – Events to consider

Nothing to do this Bank Holiday Weekend. Joanna Golding has picked a few things to consider. Including a giant purple, upside down cow:

Gig

Dancing Lotus

Easter Monday (25th April) at Proud in Camden

Dancing Lotus have been writing, recording and gigging over the last few years and are now on the cusp of hitting the big time. With nods from Newton Faulkner and Jools Holland’s R&B Orchestra, their last single ‘Spend Some Time’ (a duet with Elliot Morris) flew straight in at the Number 1 spot of the itunes singer/songwriter chart. Their next offering, Silver & Blue, is perfectly summery and chilled out.

Check out the video for Silver & Blue here: http://youtu.be/MFuCEF9Ttq4
