Cherry Ekko - the return!

First Cherry Ekko gig - The Kinbeats at The Good Ship, 28th July 2010, from 8pm
My brother and I have just re-launched our music website Cherry Ekko

Those of you who were signed up to the old version know it was all about attempting to help bands amass a recording budget by selling limited edition CDs of demo tracks. All in all I think we sold about nineteen copies between all the bands... they each needed to sell 2000 to gain their recording target.

So Cherry Ekko has now become a live music event as well as a website. The concept is fabulously simple: place a vote for your favourite band, and the five with the most votes play a gig organised by us every two months.

The first ever Cherry Ekko gig is on July 28th at The Good Ship on Kilburn High Road. Apparently The Beatles, Joy Division, and even Elvis Presley have all performed at The Good Ship in the past.

Our July 28th headliners will be The Kinbeats (new proteges of indie legend Edwyn Collins, vocal harmonies to die for) - they'll be backed up by Aquilina, Hermione, and Little Life.

You should really reach for your diary and firmly 'pen' it in right now - you'll only forget otherwise, and that would be a crying shame. See you there.
