First Show Of The Year Just Round The Corner!
Let’s kick off 2013 with David Bazan – and here at Melting Vinyl we can’t believe it is only two weeks until he will be getting up close and personal with you at The Basement! Coming all the way from the ‘U.S of A’, he brings with him an intimate performance of solo material AND his back catalogue of Pedro The Lion Songs – Aren’t you lucky!
Support comes from Belgian Singer Songwriter Marco Z, one of Europe’s hottest breakouts of 2012 . After playing music for 10 years he aptly named his album ‘The Ordinary Life Of Marco Z.’ a reflection on the ordinary life he was living before the music business crept up on his exceptional talent.
Sound good? You haven’t heard his infectious single ‘I’m a Bird’ yet! Don’t worry, here is the link so you can.
As you know, David Bazan was, for many years, the songwriter and driving force behind the acclaimed indie band Pedro The Lion. After building a dedicated following and selling a few hundred-thousand albums with the band, his focus now lies in the story telling nature of his music, making it feel like he is performing just for you.
In 2012 we brought you some legendary performances from some of the best national and international artists, and we want to know who you liked the best! You never know, if you tell us your favourites we’ll try and bring them back to our lovely seaside town. From Sinead O’Connor to Wild Beasts we had some pretty good things happening at Melting Vinyl last year. For a full line up of our shows from 2012, click here and tweet us with your favourites at @MeltingVinyl and get involved in the discussion!
