Wagon – Thursday 6th October

Posted by james on Tuesday Sep 6, 2011 Under event, live music

A fantastic October lineup with Puressence, The Neat and Hafdis Huld.

A brilliant and much anticipated headline set for October will come from indie legends Puressence (an acoustic headline set), described by the Guardian as ‘An epic quartet fronted by a voice of rare power & distinction’.

Young wild-boys The Neat have supported Warpaint and Young Knives this year. They were also handpicked to play Kirkstall Abbey with the Kaiser Chiefs.

October’s opening act is huge Icelandic talent, Hafdis Huld. The Sunday Times best sum-up Hafdis, ‘Bittersweet, slightly bonkers and decidedly swoony.’

Wagon Summer at The Old Queens Head

Posted by james on Monday May 23, 2011 Under Uncategorized

The first ever Wagon Summer all day session brings together an extraordinary mix of musical talent. Opening up the afternoon’s proceedings is Natalie McCool. Natalie has just released her debut single, Black Sun, and has a fantastic future ahead of her. The Brights do exactly what it says on the tin and will be launching their debut album with us. Barbara Kelly do it loud and will kick start a dreamy afternoon – turning things cool rock. Cowbell are a garage blues duo getting stunning reviews for both their song-writing and performance. From raw guitars to the sound of Delfino Square, a young new dubstep outfit sure to lift the roof. Wagon favourites Delooze bring their electro-dance sound to The Old Queens Head and Steve Lamacq favourites Jukebox Collective will headline an all dayer to remember.

Wagon – Thursday 12th May

Posted by james on Tuesday Apr 19, 2011 Under event, live music

After storming SXSW 2011 followed by a brilliantly received north American tour, Black Cherry return to their East London roots for what promises to be a huge headline set. They will be supported by Lady Fortune, described by Drowned in Sound as having “an art-rocking indie-punk approach, Lady Fortune are very much here and now”. King Jacks brings his new sound of Brit Pop to Wagon. The Guardian say “This prince charming’s ambitious pop reminds us of the brash, brilliantly bolshy quality of Adam Ant”. Completing May’s line-up is newcomer and huge talent, Natalie McCool. Coldplay’s Chris Martin has singled her out for praise and acclaimed record producer Steve Levine was so impressed with her he signed her to his label. It’s going to be a fantastic night of awesome live music plus cool grooves with the Superfantastic DJs.

Wagon – Thursday 14th April

Posted by james on Tuesday Mar 22, 2011 Under event, live music

April’s Wagon will feature 4 bands. Our headliners, Shady Bard, recently appeared on Radio 4’s prestigious Loose Ends and are hugely respected by fellow musicians and fans alike. Shady Bard will top the bill with support from Giant Steps. A band with big ambitions and a good dollop of deserved hype, this is a great chance to see Giant Steps in intimate surroundings before they really hit the big time. Talented Essex born singer song-writer Francis Neve will be captivating and newcomers Homo Erectus may just do what it says on the tin…

Wagon – Thursday 10th March

Posted by chris on Tuesday Mar 1, 2011 Under event, live music

A star was born at Wagon in March. 17 year old Kitty Macfarlane made her London debut and has subsequently been booked to play a number of major festivals across the UK this summer. Barabra Kelly created a fantastic buzz. A new band to large numbers of the crowd, safe to say they stormed it. Headliners in March were the awesome Last Republic. Fresh (ish) from a European tour, the band were in startling form playing new material and a spell-blidning cover of the Cure’s Close To Me.
