Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly / FREE London Show Next Week

 
By on Thursday, 1st November 2007 at 3:37 pm
 

Get Cape. Wear Cape. FlyThe legend that is Sam Duckworth, better known as Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, has announced a special show in London next week.

He’ll play London’s Scala next Tuesday, 6th November. Tickets are free, and to get them all you’ll need to do is email [email protected] now for you and TWO mates to be added to the list.

I’m pretty sure that tickets will go extraordinarily fast (I mean, who doesn’t lke a free night out?), so act now.

I also have no idea why it’s a free night, if it’s being filmed for something or a promotional night for a company (though Sam doesn’t strike me as the sell out sort…). If someone knows please let us know!

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly for Reading + Leeds Warm up

 
By on Wednesday, 8th August 2007 at 7:48 pm
 

Get Cape. Wear Cape. FlyThe legend that is Sam Duckworth, otherwise known as Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. has announced a one off show playing the Coal Exchange, Cardiff.

The political baladeer will play there on Thursday 23rd August, as a warm up for Reading and Leeds festivals that weekend.

Tickets are on sale now from here at £12.50 each.

No doubt he’ll take the intimate setting as a chance to try out some new material, which will hopefully be well received. He’ll be supported as ever by his backing band of Mike Glenister on Cornet, Andy Theakstone on Drums and Gavin Fitzjohn on Trumpet and Sax.

Bands to keep a watch out for in the future: #9: Scouting for Girls

 
By on Wednesday, 20th June 2007 at 7:50 pm
 

Scouting For Girls Having won the Innocent Unsigned bands talent search last year and the chance to play at their Fruitstock Festival, Londoners Scouting For Girls have had an amazing year. Signing to Epic Records on Valentine’s Day this year, they’re about to release their first EP, the incredibly anthemic “It’s Not About You” which will just grab you by the heart strings and make you think “YES!” and become addicted to them. Or you can just write them off as another bunch of Keane wannabes. You choose, but you know what I think.

Scouting For Girls are the sort of band that are perfect to open the festivals – people lounging around, feeling rough after the previous night, and just wanting some music to take them to “that happy place”. As they say themselves in their biography, they’re “unashamedly nostalgic, mottled with loss, disillusion and a poignant lamentation for innocent past times”.

Many bloggers have been very excited about their current material, with favourable reports emerging about their live shows. Needless to say, for those of you fortunate enough to be going to Glastonbury this weekend (and if so, why aren’t you there already?), they’ll be playing on Friday night at 8pm at the Late N Live Stage.

Reminiscent of both Keane (for their Piano-led pop-rock) and Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly (for Sam Duckworth’s brilliant knack of conveying feelings and images of a time and place), Scouting For Girls are sure to gain a devoted following soon.

After the jump, catch their video for “It’s Not About You”. Picture was taken from Scouting For Girls’ MySpace.
