PREVIEW: ArtBeat feat Younghearts, French Crops, Bad Wolf this Thursday



Younghearts (alt pop), French Crops (funkpunk), Bad Wolf (alt rock) (live) at the launch of ArtBeat at Amersham Arms in London on Thursday 27th September. The venue will have “A Night Out” every Thursday.

Younghearts, fronted by the enigmatic Joe Fox, are ready for the next step on, they make young hearts pump faster with poetic charm and chiming chords. Ideal to kick off live events at South East London’s key venue for seeing the next ones to watch (Toy are just one of the recent names to call in). With a new EP in the wings, and various new sessions in the bag, they’re ready to be seen.

French Crops – a new favourite of the twitterati @FrenchCrops and gainiing attention ahead of thei r ‘God Loves A Trier’ EP due for release at the end of the year. This is the preview show that kicks things off. Punk you can dance to is what’s spreading their word.

Bad Wolf are a hybrid of Smashing Pumpkins, Muse, My Chemical Romance, early Manic Street Preachers and on their more epic moments, Radiohead – according to the reivews. In short, hooks, anthem, crafted to great potential and performed engagingly. It works.

Seemed like a triple statement of intent to start things off and from that it looks like the 25th October bill is coming together nicely so this ArtBeat way of doing things may work.

Socialise – GigSlutz radio show on Optical Radio / in venue from 7pm, faces to faces mixer in the venue at 8pm. (Releasing? Bring great music for future shows/potential radio play (DJ Jean Genie also presents on Kooba Radio). Pose for pix at the venue with our photographer n get filmed by for the doc.
