First shows of 2016: SESAC Showcase and Songwriter’s Circle.

2016 kicks off with a wheelbarrow full of ideas to help musicians survive and thrive (more announcements v soon there) as well as some of our showcases. First up, as you can see from the events, SESAC and Karousel Music invite you to Paper Dress Vintage in Hackney for our January showcase and networking hangout – a vintage clothes shop by day and venue by night, the venue is opposite Oslo and a ten second walk from Hackney Central. Boutique beers, ace staff, smoking area, music friendly prices, and a chance to catch the best of new music. The showcase begins at 8:30pm. Bar and smoking area downstairs, gig upstairs.

As ever, and thanks to SESAC, 100% of ticket money goes to the artists! Come support:

Corey Fox-Fardell – 8:30pm – 9:00pm
Yonaka – 9:15 pm – 9:45pm
Feverist – 10:00pm – 10:30pm


Following that, on Weds Feb 3rd, it’s the first in a series of Songwriters’ Circle evenings. The first lineup there is crazy. Have a look on the event pages for more on the acts – below are some clips of who is playing these first two events. On both nights, ticket money all goes to the acts.
