So as quickly as my story about DELS pop-up session goes up for Last.fm and HP, I am pleased to announce the next show right here, right now for you. The brilliant rustic folk-pop goodness of The Leisure Society will be gracing the high seas, well the River Thames, at the Tamesis Dock on Thursday 24th November at 8.30pm.
The Leisure Society is the brain child of lead songwriter, Nick Hemming, who started his musical endeavours about 10 years ago. Becoming close friends with actor Paddy Considine and director Shane Meadows, saw Hemming score two of Meadows’ films, A Room For Romeo Brass and Dead Man’s Shoes. Everything seemed to change with the arrival of Christian Hardy, who convinced Nick to start singing again. Since then, The Leisure Society was created and the band was formed. With their debut album ‘The Sleeper’, released in 2009 to critical acclaim, this year saw the fantastic ‘Into The Murky Water’ released May of this year.
So if you would like to see The Leisure Society perform for free and in a unique setting, please read on…
It is the Tamesis Dock on the Albert Embankment and the gig will be absolutely FREE. Just turn up before 8.30pm on the 24th November and watch the delightful Leisure Society do what they do best.
