Blog off – Jazica and Starlings to play first TGTF gig night

So, over the past few years There Goes The Fear has slowly grown and grown from nothing into a sprawling monster of music news and reviews. Seems there’s now over 15,000 of you that read us every month, so we thought “hmmm, why not meet some of you?!”. So with this in mind, we’re bringing three amazing new bands together for one night only so you can catch them in the flesh shortly before they have a stratospheric rise to fame and fortune.

It all takes place at London’s Roundhouse Studios in Camden on Saturday 20th March 2010.

First up will be the rather fantastic Victoria & Jacob who only came to our attention earlier this week. Needless to say we got right on the phone and booked them up to open the night up. Lo-fi electro pop duo Victoria & Jacob hail from London Town and make sweet sweet noise via the power of voice manipulation & synthetic sounds. Having already established themselves with BBC 6Music’s Tom Robinson, debut single “With No Certainty” is due for release on 5th April on Voga Parochia.

Following on their coat tails will be Southerners Jazica, who we caught supporting Delphic and Two Door Cinema Club last October. They’ve been championed by BBC Radio 2’s Steve Lamacq and BBC6 Music’s Tom Robinson, and quite honestly I can’t get enough of their music at the moment.

Closing things off will be one of Sheffield’s finest rising stars, Starlings (pictured left), who Jess introduced at the start of the year. Mixing beats, synths and strings to come up with electric gold floor fillers, Oxjam and BBC Radio Sheffield love them & you will see why.

So, what else do you need to know? Doors are at 7:30pm on 20th March 2010 and tickets are on sale now for those of you that like a discount and planning ahead – they’re just £5 now and will be £6 on the door.

You can order your tickets now on the Roundhouse’s website, or join the Facebook event.

As I’m sure you can work out, this is a massive undertaking, and all the complicated logistics are being sorted out by the (rather lovely) people at CIFD. They are the new generation of creative event & broadcast producers based at London City University and the iconic Camden Roundhouse. They’ve been given the opportunity to stage their own events in the Studio Theatre of the Roundhouse and in May will be taking it one step further by putting on a major live music event in the Main Space of the Roundhouse.

So, what are you waiting for? Go book your tickets, catch three ace bands and we’ll dance around or just jiggle bits. Yes.
