Guitarist Adam Chetwood presents a night of alt-country swung grooves steeped in the influence of mid seventies Dylan-esque Americana and British invasion blues string pulling.
With band members Russ Parker (Drums), Harry Bohay (Bass), Iona Thomas (vocals), Matt Marr (vocals), Rob Smoughton (keys) the group will perform works from Adams writing and playing collaborations with Legends of Country, Black Peaches,White Denim, Mark Ronson’s Carbon Life, plus some new and unreleased material.
Delve into pentatonia, plaid shirts and well lit tubes for this exclusive one-off show.
Support from Matt Marr and Flying Mojito Bros (DJ set)
In 1999 The Social opened in Little Portland Street. The brainchild of a record company whose offshoots included a hugely successful underground club night, The Social was set up with a simple manifesto – to provide great music and better booze to anyone who fancied tripping through the doors.
15 years later and still run by the original team who created it – Heavenly Recordings & The Breakfast Group – the bar is an award winning London institution. Designed back then by a partnership of David Adjaye and Will Russell (now of Pentagram) with the proviso of withstanding nuclear attack or – at the very least – the worst that people could chuck at it, The Social has launched over a million hugely successful hangovers.
