Well, we think we’re just about ready enough to take ourselves out of beta, and call ourselves cooked.
This is a cause for celebration so we’re delighted to say that we’re going to have ourselves a little knees up.
We’ve invited Treetop Flyers, Good Dangers and Dimbleby & Capper along and we have some special guest DJs and appearances to keep things bouncing along, watch this space as we firm people up.
We’re also negotiating hard to get us some free booze for the night (you know how hard it is to get people to give you booze, for free ?)
If we pick your name at random, you & a +1 will be on the list. It’s like the big time.
If you are some kind of writer, online or off, and can help spread the gospel of Seeks, or you’d like to give us and a bunch of trend setting, taste makers some free booze give us a shout and we’ll see if we can’t list you up.
Treetop Flyers have been tipped by Clash Music who Picked them as ones to watch last year, and said “If you’ve been starving hungry for some musical nourishment, this is chicken gumbo and warm apple pie for your ears.” The Guardian also liked the cut of their jib, and they are playing HMV’s Next Big Thing Festival, later in the month.
London’s Good Dangers gave us a giddy thrill when we first stumbled upon their bandcamp site. Blending the punchy polished programmed pop of Phoenix and the open-heart confessional of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. They’re brand new and unwritten about so come the Monday you’ll be the coolest kid in school.
Dimbleby & Capper is going to give us a special solo show.
Laura Bettinson has supported the likes of Local Natives, fun., Casiokids, Chew Lips, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, played Glastonbury and Latitude festivals for the BBC and recorded a live Maida Vale session for Huw Stephens on Radio One.
As well as fronting the live band, Laura also remixes and produces, having seen releases by Band of Skulls and Saint Saviour (Groove Armada) to date.
