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.

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.

Joshua Radin / One off London show

By on Saturday, 4th August 2007 at 7:50 pm

Joshua RadinFor those in need of another singer-songwriter fix, then LA heartthrob Joshua Radin has announced a one off show at Kings College in London on Monday 8th October following a successful two night stint at Water Rats last month.

He said on his myspace bulletin:

“those two shows at monto water rats were the most fun i’ve had playing live in a while. you guys were so incredibly supportive. hearing the whole room sing every word to “winter” was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. i hope we can capture that type of vibe for this coming show. the tickets are now on sale but it’s the same amount of available tickets as the two shows at water rats (which both sold out a month before the shows) – so i’m letting my myspace friends know about it before it’s advertised in the newspapers over”

Tickets are available now from those money grabbing bastards, Livenation. Click here for tickets (£9.50 each, plus extortionate booking fees)
