Graham Coxon, Esser - Win Itunes festival tickets!
Bill Cummings 30/06/2009
For better or worse, Blur's reformation is certainly getting people talking, their Sunday evening Glasto headlining set certainly reconnected them with a whole new generation of fans who weren't there the first time round. Making those who were just a little misty eyed for the days of Modern Life Is Rubbish era Blur.
Lest we forget Blur guitarist Graham Coxon is still a well loved solo performer, he will be taking a break from his recent activity with Blur(intimate railway gig, Glasto headline performance, Hyde park shows ect) to perform songs from his warmly received recent Transgressive debut album "The Spinning Top" playing the Itunes Festival on 23rd July at the Roundhouse.
The critically acclaimed record will be performed by the same band that took these folk epics across a sold out UK Tour earlier this year; hinting at how they will progress into more orchestral pieces in the near future, and providing a wider audience with their last opportunity to see them in this fashion.
He will be supported by Esser resh from making inroads in the USA with his debut album "Brave Face". Having just collaborated with the Beastie Boys and Prince Paul, and setting alight clubs up and down the country with Headlock, he's in prime position to entrance with his exuberant live set.. Both will be recorded for exclusive Itunes live EPs.
To celebrate we've got a pair of tickets to give away to see messers Coxon and Esser at the Itunes festival on the 23rd at Camden's Roundhouse. To be in with a chance, simply send your full name and email addresses to email@example.com by the 15th of July, when the lucky winners will be informed.To enter you do need to be over 14, and to show up on the day with your ID! Good luck!!
