The Pentatonic has today announced that it will be hosting what will hopefully be the first of many showcases of new talent from the city, and further afield. The gig, which is set to take place on the 28th September, will be in Maguire’s Pizza Bar, with all bands receiving payment before they have played a single note.
The idea to have the show hosted in Maguire’s Pizza Bar is to have this back-to-basics approach instilled within the night, and within the artists playing. It’s also the cheapest place to host a gig, and offers free pizza to the bands playing.
Opening the night is Huyton-based troubadour, Andrew Connor, who will be bringing his eclectic mix of Bob Dylan-esque folk and pop reliant sound to the restaurant turned fun zone. Secondly will be Amsterdam’s very own Pip Blom, who will be making her way over to the UK for the first time to bring her strange mix of melancholic indie.
The penultimate act, will be Pale Horse, a band who have just realised a single called, ‘Amphibian Baby’, which is fascinating to say the least. The band boast a moody, yet uplifting sound that will have you pining for all your old pop-punk LPs.
Closing the night will be Hushtones, who, headed by frontman Mick Campbell play a sound that mixes a large array of influences and styles. It’s psychedelia based on the pop sensibilities, that could be likened to the later sounds of the Fab Four, after that trip to India.
The Pentatonic, is an up-to-scale music publication, that was founded by Sam Meaghan in May of this year. Over the past several months, the website has had over 40,000 hits and has supported some bands that are beginning to break (Mouses, The Carnabys, PLAZA, Her’s and more).
