Club Velocity April
April's Club Velocity at Rising Sun Arts Centre has Tom Williams and the Boat, Peers and Dylan-Louise, this is what Velocity have to say about the gig...
Tom Williams and the Boat
Huge talent alert! Tom and his boat are back at their favourite Reading venue.Since the first time Tom played for Club Velocity he has gone from strength to strength. He played Glastonbury year not just once, but four times last year. He also played Latitude and Hop on the Farm.
Earlier this year the band released their debut album Too Slow to much critical acclaim including BBC 6 Music and Radio 4 Loose Ends. It is our fave debut album of 2011.
He has now found radio heavyweights (Steve Lamacq/Huw Stephens/Huey Morgan) really championing him and his band. Think Bob Dylan/Bruce Springsteen/Billy Bragg. A truly amazing artist. Trust us on this one.
They hail from Reading and they played their debut gig for Club Velocity in Janaury 2010. Since then the teenage four piece have gone from strength to strength. They were invited by the BBC to play Reading/Leeds festival 2010, were played on Radio 1 and gained management who have the likes of Ashand Chapel Club on their books. They deal in 'noise pop' but these kids have legs and seriously can go places.
Played her debut show at Silver Street in August 2010 and she has not looked back. Only 19 years old, half American studying at Goldsmiths in London. Dylan-Louise has a voice of an angel and the lungs of a giant.
